Not all stories end the way you expect.
Last year I started an album that was based on a story I expected to last for the next four years. My story fell apart around springtime.
It fell apart for me in a sad way, but it changed for the better for my daughter’s part of the story. I’m excited to document her evolving tale, but that leaves me with an album for the beginning of the old, dead-ended story, which only requires about seven pages, front and back. There are no “slim-sized” 12×12 albums to house just seven pages, so for the past week or so I’ve been exploring options for how to gracefully deal with the diversion our story has taken.
Have you experienced an unexpected change in your own story after you’d started scrapbooking it? What have you chosen to do with the pages that now might seem out of place?
I made a video to share the process I took, deciding what to do with mine. I went pretty in-depth, telling my story in the video as well. I hope you enjoy it.

Our stories don’t always take us where we hoped, but where ever we find ourselves there will always be something else wonderful within our reach. Whatever our stories are, let’s embrace them.
