Organize 1000?s Of Photos Easily
The easiest way is to start right from the beginning, your pregnancy. Chronological order is an easy way to organize your photos, that's if you remembered to write all the dates down.
If you're like me, you didn't exactly start out that way. So here are some tips to get your photos organized and ready for scrapbooking.
The date may not seem urgent for you to write out because you may think that you will easily remember what "month" your baby was at in the pictures.
But when they hit 4 or 5 months old, it can be hard to determine which month they're in.
So.....As soon as you pick up your pictures from the developer go home and write the date (if you have a photo safe pencil) on the back of each picture.
Or you could get on the computer and type all the details out onto labels and put that on the back of each picture. Also make a label for each negative too.
Take your photos OUT of the envelope they came in and put them into a storage box or file folder.
A great way to store your negatives is to put them into a storage sheet and into a binder. This way all your negatives are stored together, safely, and out of the way.
A great way to stay organized and up to date is to take at least 1 roll of film of the baby each month.
This way the next time you go grocery shopping just drop the film in and pick it up on your way out, quick & easy.
You can now sit down and do your 2 page layout. When you're finished, put the extra pictures away in storage.
We all have such busy lives these days and usually the only time we commit to scrapbooking is when we go to a crop.
If you commit to at least once a month to sit down and do your 2 page layout of your baby, you'll be completing an album in no time. Now if you want to sit and do 2 or 3 spreads, then by all means, please do.
IF YOUR CHILD IS OLDER
If you are scrapbooking your child's baby pictures then get them involved too! We all know that scrapbooking is an awesome time to bond and build relationships with people. Why not your own child? Get them organizing & helping you out.
Focus more on what was happening in the picture to help you remember at what age your baby was. If you can't remember, then scrapbook the pictures by the event.
It doesn't necessarily have to be on chronological order. :)
Follow these above steps and you will stay organized and up to date on your baby's first year. Get going!

Antiques - The Modern Day Treasure Hunt
In today's world, everything that's old can be described as antiques and generally speaking that's quite true. A product is considered to be an antique if it is over a hundred years old or is rare enough to have some value. In other words, these are old items that are in limited supply.
Personally, I have become fascinated with gemstones (precious and semi-precious stones). I am amazed at the array of colors and properties of these little treasures found in the earth. God created something truly amazing for us to look at and to adorn ourselves. Many of these tiny treasures are a fantastic investment. Purchasing a rare and beautiful gemstone that will significantly appreciate is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy and benefit. Making a return or to pass down through the generations, gemstone collecting can be a rewarding and profitable hobby.

No matter how careful you are, you will undoubtedly find a mistake, mark, or mess on your finished scrapbook page. This is just part of the process of making a scrapbook. If you find a mistake, mark, or glue bits on your scrapbook page, just rub it off using a soft white eraser.
The Use of Color and Photographs in Your New Scrapbook
Color coordination and contrast will highlight and accent your scrapbook. A well thought out color scheme can help define the theme of a page, attract attention to specific items, or detract away from mistakes. Poorly chosen color schemes, on the other hand, can cause your scrapbook page to look gaudy or mismatched.

Depression Glass Companies
Just before the advent of the Great Depression, more than a hundred companies manufactured glassware in the United States. At the end of the Depression, fewer than fifty percent of these companies remained in business.
