Episode 51: Chronicling our Collections

This week we're discussing how to document the collections we own. From Pez dispensers to dachshunds, we'll share our list of collections and how we plan to tell the story behind why we treasure them. 

Here are three ways to listen...

1) ScrapGals on Podomatic
2) ScrapGals on iTunes
3) Right here on this player....


 

Thanks for listening! Tune in next week when, among other things, we'll discuss using planners for memory keeping.

    1. Laurel - I love to cross stitch too! Would you email me about any of your fave suppliers or designers or patterns? I'm kind of out of the loop when it comes to the shopping aspect of cross stitch right now and need you to be my source of info! My email is lowdertiff@gmail.com

    2. Oh, fat quarters, I didn't even think about the drawer full of those, that also reminds me of the dozen Kipling bags I have too, I obviously need someone to remind me of my collecting habits too, like you said on the podcast, I didn't consider those collections. Handbags are essentials after all LOL.

  4. I collect books, baskets, candles, and small, old glass jars. The jars I keep in my kitchen window and occasionally put a single flower in one or two. I agree with you, these collections make me happy.

  5. Fun show! I enjoyed hearing about your collections! I don't really collect anything mainly because I don't like clutter or a lot of 'stuff' sitting around. But I do have a Snowbaby ornament collection which only comes out at Christmas. I have a small collection of owls that I keep in my studio. I have photographed my ornament collection and plan on doing a mini album about them.

  6. Hi Gals, I really enjoyed your show this week. I have a good few collections. A lot of scrapbooking things, nutcracker, Disney things, Precious Moments figures and cross-stitch charts, 6 needlepointed animals. I love to stitch so much that I have a scrapbook with finish project in it. Big Picture Classes had a class last year For the Love of Things by Stacy Julian, it was a nice great, gave you ideas for scrapbooking your things.

  7. Hi Girls! I really enjoyed this episode, and I wanted to let you know that you have inspired me to scrapbook my collection of Dawn dolls! I don't know if you remember these, but they were made by Mattel. They are about 6" tall and similar to Barbie dolls. I still have most of the dolls, but only a few outfits (unfortunately). Oh, I could go on and on, but I'll save that for the journaling on the layout! Thanks for the inspiration! (Tiffany, I'll see you on Scrapbook.com. I'm Scrapjanny, the former English teacher. Are you on there, Tracie?)

  8. I have many collections that I guess I never really thought of them as collections. My grandparents worked at a local antique store after they retired and passed along many finds and antique furniture to me. I also tend to collect outdoor items, as we live in the country, such as fossils, pinecones, seed pods, unique rocks that my kids find, glass treasures found by a creek bed, arrowheads, tiny bird nests, etc. - you get the picture. Interestingly enough, my father-in-law worked in Russia at the end of his career and bought me a dozen or so Russian boxes, eggs and nesting dolls. You have both inspired me to document the stories behind my collections. I enjoy listening to your show especially while scrapbooking - it's like having a couple friends sit across the table from me.
