Photo Album and Memory Box

 Family
Like Branches on a tree
we grow in different directions
yet the strength of
our roots keeps
us together.
 We went to TJMaxx yesterday  and I found this  photo album.  I love the design and I love the  quote in the front.  This photo albums holds 500 pieces  4/6 photos which I literally have  at home.  
 So when we came home, I didn't waste time and  arranged all of it  in the album.  I finally finished all the printed ones.  I haven't  printed any photos  in 2015 so that would be my next project.  I have about 30 photo albums already.  MY husband asked me what am I gonna do with it all.  I told him that  it's god to have  them because when the kids are old and we are gone, they can look back to it and say, Wow, we did a lot of family stuff together.
I also bought this memory box.  I thought the design is pretty neat and it's very sturdy which I like.
 O stored all the small photo albums in there and some of my daughter's diary.
 That's what kept me busy this weekend.  I am glad it is done and I don't have to worry about it anymore.  
How about you, do you still print photos?

This is very cool. I love having a place to store my photos offline

I need this! My photos are scattered in boxes and half used albums or on my phone. This would be great to help organize our memories.

This is adorable. I love the message written on the front cover. We should have this at home.

Heather Lawrence said...

I need to pick up a couple of memory boxes.
Our photos are scattered everywhere it would be nice to get them organized in one place. I would love to make some specific to each of my little ones too.

This is really nice. I love the idea of having a memory box, especially for each year.

This is adorable. What a nice way to organize all your albums. I have a lot of albums, too.

Beautiful quote and very true. I'd love a photo album like this! I miss the traditional photo albums, I have a hundred photos in my computer that needs to be printed.

This is really nice! We have so many digital photos we need to print and organize!

This is how we store our photos and memories as well! It's a great way to store them and beautiful decor for the home as well! Thank you for sharing!

I actually still print photos and I have some photos that I got recently after my mom passed that I'd like to preserve. I've always found great steals and finds at TJ Maxx.

Love the book and the box. I think when you have children it is even more important to keep photos for them to look at when they are older and have their own families. My parents took very few photos of me as a little one and I wish they had taken more.

I love the look of this album. I have so many photos in a box i need to put in a book like this. It would be a great weekend project.

Terri said...

I love that saying and that photo album is precious! I print most of my photos myself too!

Despite the digital technology we are all enjoying right now, I still think hard copies are best. A family photo album is something you can place on your lap and enjoy even until you get into your twilight years. It is a great keepsake of memories!

Lisa said...

I love your photo album. I'm so bad - I always mean to print them out!

Jessica Simms said...

I am honestly known for NOT printing photos, I feel like the only one in the family who doesn't do that anymore. I would love to actually get a mass printing out of all the photos one day though.

Eileen said...

I have photo albums of all my children from the very first picture when they were born up to this day that they are all young adults. I treasure these photo albums. They speak of the wonderful blessings I have received!

Tracy Iglesias said...

I love the butterfly printed box of course! I rarely print photos anymore, my mom will sometimes see my travel ones and ask me to get a few printed and blown up for her to frame but I haven't owned a photo album since I went digital.

The album and memory box are so pretty! I love photo albums, but hadn't thought about creating a memory box. Thanks for sharing.
