Take Rememberable Photos

Do you hang onto items that hold special memories for you? Are you tired of them cluttering your home? In this article I will show you a way to gain more space without having to lose your precious memories.

I remember being a child at my grandmothers house admiring all of her little glass figurines. My grandmother decided to take them down one day and I was sad to see them go. I said, "Wait Grandma, I'll take a picture so that I wont forget about them" Now I have an everlasting memory of all her figurines.
I had a really hard time letting Lily's baby clothes go. They remind me of how little she once was but they were taking up too much room in her drawers. So I made a clothes line outside by tying a rope between two trees in my backyard. I hung some of her old clothes and her swaddling blankets on it. I placed Lily in the grass right in front of the clothes line and took the picture. So now I have a photo of her playing in the yard and all of her clothes that I wanted to remember in the background.

So if your in need of some more space, consider preserving your memories with a picture. They take up very little space. All of these pictures were taken with a point and shoot camera, The Nikon CoolPix. So you'll be able to get these same results with any camera. Happy Shooting!


  1. It was great to meet you today. We will definitely get together to play with the babies, but not for a little while. We are about to have a death in our family.

    Some other mothers and I would like to have a princess Easter fashion show in April. I'll keep you posted.

    Congratulations on following your dreams. Daughters can be very inspiring. Go for it!

  2. Hello Suzanne,
    It was nice meeting you too. I just read about the passing of your mother. I am so sorry, my sympathy goes out to you and your family in your tough times. The Easter fashion show sounds like a lot of fun.
