I’m teaching a class tomorrow night (UPDATE: We’ve had to move the class night to June 4 so you still have time to sign up!) and I think this is going to be one of my favourite projects yet!
I’m calling it the Drawer of Memories:
We’ll be using the 7 Gypsies Library drawer with monthly dividers plus adding additional 4×6 tabs and cards. Everyone will go home with a beautiful drawer ready to fill with pictures and snippets of journaling plus I’ll be sending along the .pdf of journaling cards so you can add to it for several years!
The main part of the drawer that we’ll be working on are the seasonal dividers:
Each one uses a different technique and product so if you’re looking to learn more about the supplies you already own or if you want to try some new ones before you buy, this is the class for you.
Although the original idea was to use this drawer to write a single journal line each night and continue that for several years, I can really see it being a different type of mini album.
The first year of your baby’s life? Your first married year maybe? Or a way to document a first or last year of school? A few words, a bunch of pictures and you have the perfect display piece for family and friends to look through.
The ideas for this drawer really are endless and I’m so excited to see what you are all going to do with them!
Hope to see some of you at class – it’s going to be a memorable one!

I love your blog post this morning and did I mention how much I love those adorable pictures at the top of your blog! With me….it’s all about the pictures!
Thanks Rexene! I’m all about pictures too but it helps to have such cuties to photograph!
It’s lovely, Sara. Love all the blue, too! ; )
Great idea on the file system. I think I’d rather store my photos like this than scrapbook them. I can’t make a layout to save my life. Cards are different story, but a layout…no way.
It’s an awesome way to store photos – and for someone like you who rocks the cards, it’s a great way to “scrapbook” your memories!
