Can you believe yet another school year is about to wrap up? I've said this before (like a million times, I know)... but I'll say it again. MY HOW TIME FLIES!!
Maybe be this year is your last--your senior student is about to matriculate and you're busy wrapping up his/her graduation scrapbook album. Or maybe this year was your first, and you're a little overwhelmed by the mountain of photos, artwork and memorabilia your kindergarterner accumulated in just a year's time.
Wherever you fall within the school years spectrum, the bottom line remains--there's a lot to documenting K-12 and whether or not you're a packrat who wants to save everything or a minimalist that's in it for the highlights--you're going to need a system!
I shared this video by Becky Higgins on our Facebook page this morning. It's about half an hour long, but if you know Becky at all or have followed her work over the years, you know she's big on details. And in this clip, she shares her process for staying on top of all of her kids "stuff". There's a lot of good tips and suggestions included--take with you what you can use and/or adapt to your family's situation/lifestyle and then be prepared to tackle that mountain of photos and papers from the dear old golden rule days!
When it comes to documenting your child's school memories, we've got the materials you need to share your school spirit--from custom patterned papers and die-cuts to heavy-duty leather albums in your school's colors with photo sleeves and page protectors that allow you to mix-and-match your album pages to suit the different certificates, photos, report cards and more that you collect throughout the year!
And speaking of custom papers... because there's such a wide variety of Elementary, Intermediate and High Schools in the area, we recognize that it's impossible to stock each one on a regular basis. So to allow you the freedom to order patterned papers that suit your specific needs in the colors, styles and patterns YOU want--we do offer Special Orders!
Just choose your color(s), your wording and pick one of SEVERAL different templates available! Custom papers are perfect for team pages, coach's albums and cheerleaders--not to mention special events!
There are basically two times in a year when school spirit is at its peak--In August/September when it all begins and May/June, when it all ends! So take advantage of your renewed spirit and get those school memories organized! After all, TIME FLIES!!
