When my first baby was born, there was so much excitement from family and friends. The baby was adorable and good looking and everyone wanted to take photos of him right from the maternity attendants.  Some of the baby’s cousins were taking photos of the baby’s hair, fists, size of the leg and hands. I was a bit mesmerized and I kept wondering; are these not too many photos for just one child? How would they be preserved so as to stay clean, neat and colored as they had been taken? When I was struggling with these thoughts I met a lady I go for a merry – round with and was trying to explain to me how she makes her money for the merry – go – round contributions. It was through a part time art that I will share with you on this article.

Melany does scrapbooking and she helped me out of my predicament of how my baby’s photos would be preserved by introducing the aspect of making a scrapbookand strong them in it. I was really excited and almost immediately she began the lessons. This was an art that I would learn comfortably now that I was on maternity leave. Other than sitting there and waiting for the baby to wake up, I would nurse that boredom by getting busy with the scrapbooking art. It involves making album like scrapbooks that more often than not are used to preserve such like items, pieces of hair, fabric that you love, photos, menus, cuttings and memory verses among others.
