Scrapbooking Captures History

Did you know that somewhere between 16 and 25 percent of U.S. households include a scrapbooker? That’s a pretty amazing number, and considering all of the monumental events that have happened over the course of the past decade, it’s no wonder that so many people are referring to the first part of the 2000’s as the “age of scrapbooking.” If you or your family loves to scrapbook, take some time to think about all of the things you’ve put into your books over the past few years. You’re not just capturing those family memories; you’re also cataloging history.

For historians, scrapbooks are a wonderful tool to keep history alive and within reach. If you or someone you love is a history buff, encourage even more scrapbooking of life’s special moments. Years later, when you look back, you and your loved ones can enjoy a glimpse back in time, not to mention, a peek at all of the history that has taken place since.
