As a child my very favorite things were art and craft supplies, journals and photo albums. This was, of course, in the era prior to our current scrapbooking culture (which I, supringly, never had any interest in. But I digress…). In an effort to instill the love for creative documentation of a young life into my daughter, we created a memory board for her today.
She would have enjoyed the project more, I suspect, had she been able to help. A pile of nails and tacks and a hammer and mommy’s overwhelming need to have the fabric stretched perfectly evenly was not conducive to a group project with a four year old. But she was a great couchside cheerleader!
