Documenting a decade

Posted By Katie Pertiet On February 27, 2011 @ 7:00 am In Family,Photo Book Ideas | 7 Comments

December 31, 2010 marked the end of the first decade of the new millennium and I wanted to create a book showing how my family evolved over the past ten years. There have been new homes, new schools, a new marriage, new grandchildren, countless trips and countless memories.

I started by organizing my pictures by year and sorting out events. I enjoyed going back and remembering  the wonderful things we had done. It gave me a chance to cherish what a blessed life we have.

This project is more than family memories. So much has happened in our world this past decade. Remembering these changes in your photo book creates a meaningful keepsake for future generations – because they get to know more about you and how world events affected you.

What about documenting general information?

- the cost of gas
– music you loved
– news events
– where you were working
– favorite tv shows
– movies of the years
– the Olympics
– technology, when did you get a cell phone? Internet? A computer?

The possibilities are endless. Whether you use digital scrapbooking format or Shutterfly’s photo book [1] templates, you’ll have a treasure for generations to come!

Here’s a glimpse into my book [2]. I used the Documenting a Decade Series [3] from DesignerDigitals.com.

And my friend Jen took on this project [4] too!
