At last - after a year and a half of procrastinating and working in fits and starts, I have FINALLY gotten all my photos into storage binders ala Stacy Julian's Library of Memories style. I set my mind to finishing this task three days ago, and now, 4 movies later (I find that watching movies distracts me and I'm able to get more done), I am finished!
I used the plain 4x6 photo albums from Wal-mart ($5 apiece), and did find along the way that you get what you pay for. Some of the seams between photos didn't hold up and I found myself having to replace certain pages. I'm storing anywhere from 2-6 pictures in each pocket (front and back), and have my photos in loose chronological order. These storage binders will serve as a sort of catalog of all my pictures that I can flip through and choose ones to scrapbook. Later, I'll begin "triaging" some of them into category drawers. More on that another time. For now, I'm basking in my success...and I'm excited to scrapbook again!
