baby book alternative…

22 Apr

…it’s been over a year since ella’s baby book trailed off, and every once in a while  i would like to record something she is doing or saying – maybe for her to look at later, or for me to look at and just remember that she hasn’t always been and won’t always be how she is at this very moment.  it’s a simple thing to forget i think. i’ve been trying to think of an easy way for me to do this recording…the idea of writing things down in a book always seems a little daunting, so i had the idea for these tiny cards. i drew this picture of ella and scanned it to make copies which i cut up into bite size pieces – my plan is to write anything on them when i think of it and keep them in a little tin, perhaps eventually to be hole punched and tied together? we’ll see…

…i hope to keep this up as she gets older, with new pictures and different tid bits of a little girl growing up…
