The "Memory" Collector

Written by David Kunstek


Continued from page 1

My next quote comes from another personal web site; I love my shot glasses! Currently I own almost 400 ofrepparttar mini drinking vessels. My friends insist that one day we have a party where each glass gets used at least once. I don't have enough floor space for when they pass out! For now, I am content to hanging these puppies onrepparttar 116089 wall. My other loves are Pink Flamingos and Oreo Cookies, but they haven't overwhelmed an entire room yet. Give me time. This collector just loves collecting them, no rhyme or reason why, she just enjoysrepparttar 116090 act of doing so.

I am sure it is clear to you by now thatrepparttar 116091 reasons why people collect many times are very different. They range from being a simple hobby, allrepparttar 116092 way to self preservation. Sometimes people collections end up in museums after they have past on. The Smithsonian Institution is living proof of that. So no matter what it is you collect just remember, next time you go somewhere, bring a memory home with you.

I Didn't Know These Are Slowly Destroying My Scrapbooks!

Another consideration when using fabrics is ifrepparttar color will bleed off onto your page and other things touching it. To test for this, cut a square inch off and soak it in a glass of water over night. If there is no color bleeding from itrepparttar 116088 next day, then there isn't any risk to your scrapbook. But if you do see color inrepparttar 116089 water, or collecting atrepparttar 116090 bottom ofrepparttar 116091 glass then don't use that fabric in your scrapbook at all.

When using glitter, be sure there is a top layer of spray adhesive to lock them down, or better yet use special glitter glue whererepparttar 116092 glitter is mixed right in. If this is not done rightrepparttar 116093 glitter will slowly fall off, and loose glitter means scratched photos.

After you have plannedrepparttar 116094 layout for your photos, be sure that you are usingrepparttar 116095 right kind of mounting tape for them! Regular mounting tape is fine for buttons and bottle caps, but when it come to mounting photos you need to use special photo mounting tape which is completely acid-free. If you don't, your photos will slowly discolor. The tape should say "acid-free" right onrepparttar 116096 packaging.

These are just a few simple things you can do to ensure that your scrapbooks last and last.
