  2. matters or event worthy to be remembered; points worthy of note.

When I design albums I must have all the pamphlets, tickets, maps, cards, passes, receipts etc. as possible.  These things carry so much character with them.  The bent corners and creases add to the style and excite the memories.  I am working on a European album and I just love all the ticket stubs that marry beautifully with the photos.  My mother had a scrapbook as a teenager and she included fabric swatches from the prom dress she made and posters to road shows.  It is one of my favorite books and I am so glad to have the extra element of texture and dimension.  In working closely with clients about their photos many feel like no one would be interested in their memories.  Well I beg to differ, the generation that follows you will treasure every thought and experience.

I’m joining the Save Everything of Importance then put it in an Album team!

Song Of The Day

Ocean of Noise - Arcade Fire

Do you ever listen to an album that you’ve had forever and all the sudden a song just jumps out and you think wow, this is a really great song?  Well that’s what happened to me the other day.  I have heard this song so many times but I never realized how much I loved it until Friday.  It’s my song of the moment. 

Also, Arcade Fire just won a Grammy for Album of the Year beating Lady Gaga, Eminem & Kate Perry.  Go Arcade Fire…
