I wanted to share how I have organised my children’s keepsake items and special memories.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, the organiser in me knew I wanted to track all the milestones in a special book. The one I used is from Amazon and is called Baby to Five: An early years journal hardcover and is priced at $28.26.
In this book I have included Christmas and birthday cards, I have cut lots of them up and do a collage onto the pages.
I have also added in some artwork too. I love looking back through these books and recently Cassie has asked to look through her baby box and book too.
The boxes are from a gift card shop in the UK, inside I have put the first pair of shoes, special outfits, their hospital tags when they were born plus cuddly toys, comforters, coins from the year they were born and other sentimental items.
The cuddly toys are made from baby clothes and I gave them their bunny and dog on their first birthdays. It is so hard when they are tiny babies as they are not in each size for long, to have these toys is so special and enables me to still see the cute clothes they wore in their first year. These were both made in the UK. For those of you who are very creative there are patterns you can buy to make them yourself. Pinterest has lots of great ideas and it comes under
I also love the name art that I created from E-bay. It was super easy to do, you enter words that you want to feature and choose the colour scheme. I then framed them. When we move to our new house in August, we will put these up on display.
