Thanks to Camille's previous entry; I have been inspired:
I have a little box filled with mementos that has slowly been accumulating since the day Fran proposed. Some things are so vitally attached to a memory that I can not picture me ever parting with it (ie: the ribbon around the bakery box or the business card of the bridal shop I visited with my mom & aunts while in Mexico). Yet these "little" things take up space. Space I do not have. So, either in the box they would stay until one day I succumb to the dormant neat freak in me and throw them out or...I could "copy, paste" the answer Camille's blog had given me.
It was a longer hunt for the shadow box than I had anticipated. I looked everywhere! Michael's, Hobby Lobby...alright, I hit the first two without any success and the idea sort of flew away. Until I happened to walk into TJ Maxx (always a hit or miss) the other day. As is the way of life, when I was least expecting it, I stumbled across my little shadow box. I don't think I found what I had originally gone in for but, the moment I saw the box the light bulb lit up once again.
It has taken a few days of digging through boxes and files but, for the most part, my memory box is coming along.
I love knowing my treasured trinkets have found a home and that as time flies by, the ones that are sure to come will be able to join them.
