Creating a journal or diary that combines scrapbooking and
journaling, is a journal that you can share. Writing about
experiences and feelings, and including photos, ticket stubs,
magazine or newspaper clippings, fortune cookie fortunes,
drawings, and more, enhances and further explains those
experiences and feelings, becoming a treasured keepsake for you
and for your family and friends to share for years to come.

Starting out: Origami is an art of paper folding, therefore all you
should need is a piece of paper and you can start folding away
without any problems, right? Well, almost. You might need a few
other things that we will talk about in this chapter.
Basic folds. Most of the designs that you will learn will use a
square piece of paper - and most will be done with origami paper,
so the directions will show a colored (or gray side to indicate
color) and a white side. Also, most patterns will have an arrow
that points you in the direction of where the fold should go.
Origami is a wonderful and elegant art. It has been developed and
embraced over the past 2,000 years by young and old alike.
Origami is a fantastic art form that guarantees hours of fun and
enjoyment, not to mention a great way to challenge yourself and
build your creativity. However many beginners come across trouble

Racks and racks of bookmarks ranging from funny to inspirational
are available in most bookstores. But for a truly unique
bookmark, make your own from a treasured digital photo.
Why You Need A Display Case. Some people are under the impression
you need to own a retail shop to have a display case. While
commercial display cases (like commercial pet display cases) are
popular, many people often have one in their home.
One of the best ways to display photographs, memorabilia and
other prized possessions is by using a display case. When
properly done, a display case can showcase your collectables for
all to see in an elegant manner.
Maybe you have a bunch of collectibles sitting in your closet
gathering dust. Or perhaps you've been storing your fine China in
the kitchen cupboards instead of a hutch.
