Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I am always sad when the holidays are over but it is exciting to have a nice, fresh year full of new opportunities. The past two years I have made it a goal to compile my pictures and video footage from the previous year by the end of January through creating a blog book, scrapbook, home video, and archiving the files. Once I have preserved those memories, I feel I can move onto my goals and projects for the new year.
Here are some previous posts I have done that give details on ways you can preserve your memories.
Blog books - "slurp" all your entries using Blurb.com in minutes and create a beautiful book full of your year's memories
Scrapbook - whether you do the traditional or digital books, it is a great time to catch up
Home Video - use your video footage and pictures from the past year to create a movie (my son watches the video I made last year at least once a week - kid's love seeing themselves on tv!)
Archive photos - backup all those precious photos
