This week was an organization and planning week for my learning project. I realized this project was going to be a large undertaking after doing some research on Pinterest and simple Google searches. I started off by planning what kind of pictures I would like to include in this scrapbook and decided that because this was going to be a 50th wedding anniversary present I wanted to include pictures that spanned over their last 50 years of marriage. I took a trip out to the family farm to go through mountains of photo albums. Luckily we live in a digital age and instead of taking the very delicate photos in to make copies I was able to use my phone to take a copy of the photo and then print them off. I also started researching what kind of materials you should start off with and I found a site with wallet-friendly suggestions. I watched several youtube videos to give me a better understanding of what would be most appropriate for my project. This video seemed to be the most useful for determining supplies:
Unfortunately, I don’t have a local craft store, however, I was able to find a few basic supplies at the Walmart and Dollarama and I ordered the rest online on Amazon. I settled on the basics for now and I will continue to collect materials as I need them.
