postheadericon Part 1 - My Scrapping History

Way back in 1956, when a freshman in college I liked to hand-draw my own greeting cards, especially for dates. Soon some of my dorm-buddies wanted custom cards, too, so I went into business.

From that I progressed to making scrapbook pages after each big event. We always had lots of little gifts from the dances, and formal photos from any of the Greek events. I was using a scrapbook with manila paper pages. I used rubber cement and water colors for decoration. I prized those books, mostly as a record of dating, and sorority events. I remember friends coming into my dorm room the day after an event to see what I had made.

Alas, all of the books, souvenirs and pages were lost right after we moved to our first house in 1966 and the basement flooded. I just hadn't unpacked everything yet. The negatives to snapshots were all lost, too, so there is no photo record of my college years at all.

Forty Years of Scrapping

Long before it was popular, I was trying to decorate arrangements of photos and sentimental items. Here I want to share some of my personal history and more important, some ideas I have gleaned from more than 40 years of scrapping.
