Many people take photos and store them in shoeboxes or the envelopes the developed prints are returned in. Most of these people are overwhelmed by the years of photos they have and are be interested in organizing them, but don't know where to begin. That's where Creative Memories comes in.
"I teach you how to store them correctly and show you how simple and fun preserving your stories and photos can be. It is more than a craft or hobby. It is treasuring your memories safely and easily," Floyd said.
For example, you might want to know whether to caption your pictures. Quick-captioning is the most basic style of creating a journal. Simply answer questions about the photo.
# Who is in the picture?
# What is happening?
# Where, when and why was it taken?
Some of the pictures might be grouped together to tell a story. Storytelling uses descriptive phrases or personal anecdotes to describe the experience. Imagine yourself sharing your photos with a friend. Now write what you would tell your friend.Floyd will help you get started with lots of tips and ideas. Creating scrapbooks is a popular hobby. But more than that, is a means to preserve your photos and memories in a safe way, for yourself and for your family.
