Doing anything nice for National Scrapbooking Day? I'm going to be out and about, spending time with the family, saving the sticking for later. I might collect a story or two to put in the gorgeous new notebook very sent by Ruth for that very purpose. Thanks Ruth!
And I'll certainly be thinking about a piece I found in the paper recently:
Let me take you to the British Psychological Society Conference in London. No, wait - it's completely connected to scrapbooking. Claudia Hammond, who is publishing a new book Time Warped gave a paper on what psychologists call The Holiday Paradox. I think we scrapbookers would call it - making memories last. When we look back at things, so the theory goes, our perception of time, of how long a thing lasts, is based on how many individual memories we created in that time. So, if you go on holiday and do lots of new things you enjoy and take lots of pictures and remember it all, you can make a week long break feel in your head like it lasted much much longer...isn't that what we've been saying for years?
So, make memories, stretch time, make the most of it all..
...and, with that in mind, I'd like to remind you that it's Storytelling Sunday tomorrow. See you there?
