Are you ever inspired by a fellow blogger/vloggers creation? I know I am. This was the case when I came across memory boxes filled with things from baby’s first few months of life.
I was inspired by a number of different people on Pinterest but the one that stood out to me was Becky-Moo Miracle Momm'y's Youtube video 'What's inside my baby memory box?' and decided to try my hand at creating something similar.
I searched around online for potential places in my county to visit and pick up a Shadow Box. It’s important to me that I hold potential purchases in my hand before I buy them. Sadly nowhere had one quite so lovely as the one The Range had in store and therefore the decision was made to drive to another county and pick one up. The frame is padded, has a few pins to start you off pinning your baby’s collection and there’s a glass door that opens and closes with a magnetic closure.
The things I included in this Shadow Box were:
- A picture of my daughter
- The outfit she wore in the photo
- A hat
- A cardigan
- A diary I received through the post that came from a branded company and is perfect for storing information as well as name suggestions you come up with
- One of her first bottles
- Our hospital bracelets
- A handmade tag from my Aunt
- A leaflet talking about the unit my daughter and I stayed in at hospital
- A rosette from her nappy cake
- A little book of memories
Now that everything is in place and it’s up on my daughter’s bedroom wall I love pointing it out to her. I point to her and say her name ad point to her baby photo and say her name too. Instantly my daughter smiles back as if in recognition.
How do you store your memories?
