  1. Happy Scrapbook Day! Hop your day includes some scrappy plans!

  2. I’m a big fan of the Log Your Memory Shop Newsletter – I always find inspiration and ideas in it! Thanks so much for the giveaway, and looking forward to the new idea book!

  3. I don’t have a lot of photos from my childhood & I would like to record more of when I was younger! πŸ™‚
    So excited to see your new book! I would love to win a copy!! I follow you blog, like your facebook page, get your newsletter, tweeted and pinned!!

  4. This might sound a little weird but I wish I knew more of the *real* stories (my grandma spent most of her life verbally photoshopping family stories). There were lots of struggles – suicide, addiction, even prostitution in our family line and I wish I knew more. Like it or not, those stories have an impact on who I am today. The tough stories/memories can help shape and change us in very positive ways if we allow it.

  5. BTW, already a FB fan. πŸ™‚

  6. I’m a fan. πŸ™‚

  7. I am already a fan :), But I really wish I had a better camera when my 8 year old was little, I miss those baby memories that I now get with his little brother…

  8. I wish I had more information on my grandfather. I know I loved him very much but he died when I was 5 and I don’t remember what I used to do with him.

    I already receive the newsletter and am a fan on Facebook. πŸ™‚

  9. Wish I had more pix from college & ‘everyday’ pix from dating days w/ hubby. I found a few pictures and wish I had more!! Wish it was digital back then πŸ™‚

  10. I wish I had more pictures and stories from when I resided at my first apartment. That first apartment is where I lived through many milestones and memories:
    – my first years teaching (and all the firsts that come with that)
    – my first years out of college
    – lived here when my best friend got married and moved away
    – lived here when I met my boyfriend of 3 years
    – lived here when I learned of my dad’s illness
    And it was my childhood apartment that my parents kept renting out. So, right before I moved out, my parents decided to break the lease and this is where I also learned the truth in the quote “Just because you left the farm doesn’t mean you won’t cry when you sell it.”

    I want to remember my life in my early twenties but that was during my memory-keeping hiatus, so I documented nearly nothing from that time.

  11. I am subscriber to your newsletter and I think your book is a fabulous idea. I have so many real stories that I would still like to document and this book would be the perfect addition to help me.
    Thanks for the chance!

  12. I just love the idea of this book! It looks amazing! Thanks for providing a give-a-way!

    • I forgot to say I wish I had memories of my husband’s childhood. How did he get to be the way he is lol.He is not my past directly, but I do wish I had more photos and stories of him to share with my kids.

  13. Happy to have Scrap Your Real Life 5 Easy Steps on my Pinterest board now

  14. I’m already a newsletter subscriber. I love LYM!

  15. My one story from the past: I wish I knew more about my paternal grandparents. My grandfather died before I was born, my grandmother died when I was young. They were homesteaders, my grandfather was an immigrant, my grandmother a 1st generation American. I know they had a lot of stories to tell.

  16. I wish I knew more about my birth mum and why she decided to put me up for adoption. I think it would make a great page.

  17. Already a Facebook fan πŸ™‚

  24. Past story: my dad and his family. The info I have about prior to meeting my mom is like an house after the movers have come. You know the rooms, you know folks lived here, there a bit of evidence but no one left to tell you the stories of the family that lived there. He is gone, his brother/sister gone, no extended family. Nothing but a few photos sparse info.

  42. There was a Sunkist packing house near the house where I lived growing up. I walked past it every day on my walk home in elementary school. It was the 70’s and the fumes of the cars on the road stunk so bad, I remember when I’d get near enough to the packing house I would breathe so deply because the smell of oranges would overpower the smell of gasoline. Sometimes the workers would give us a handful of Sunkist fruit gems. The packing house isn’t there anymore. I wish I had more info about it, and some photos.

  43. Liked your Facebook site

  44. I wish I documented more when I was pregnant but most of the time I was just too tired. Bought a logbook in preparation of my sons birth ( who is now3 months old) and I’m so glad for it!
