Each year I purchase an ornament for each of my boys. Sometimes they relate to a hobby or sport they are participating in – A glass football for Max, a pair of running shoes for London. Sometimes they are a reminder of a specific event throughout the year – London’s first flying lesson, Max’s broken arm. Sometimes they are just silly ornaments that I think the boys will like.
Each year as we are unpacking the ornaments and placing them on the tree I think to myself, I need to document these ornaments so I’ll remember who they belong to when it comes time to box them up and pass them along.
Last year, I even grabbed my camera and photographed all of them. Like all fabulous intentions during the holiday season, this project ended up on the back burner, and the pictures filed away in that great digital storage device in the sky – “the cloud.”
This year though, I’ve found the perfect tool to make this task an EASY to do activity. You know what I always say, if it’s EASY you’ll do it. Well, I have EVERY confidence that this year I’ll get it done!
I’m going to use the “OFlip” mini-album. This cool little album, which is available on our website, is a simple post bound 4×6 album with a clear cover. Why is it so easy? Because the 4×6 photographs are the PAGES of the album.
Here’s an example of an easy to create page for my album.
Let me know what you think about creating an album/ornament for all of your family ornaments.
