scrapboxing... Darcy Miller style





The idea of scrapbooks always appealed to me, however the act of scrapbooking.. uggh, I instantly envision boxes of dried out stamp pads, colored papers that have been half cut into.. we're back to the nightmare of boxes of STUFF. See I'm a creative type but also mildly neat freak type A (mildly).. the combination is tricky.. Anyhoo.. I like this idea of "scrapboxing" a lot!
It it is a little less committal than a whole book of memories and there is a bonus, art for your home that tells a personal story.. Win Win.
Darcy Miller, the editorial director of Martha Stewart Wedding recently had an art exhibit of her "scrapboxing" in Manhattan called "Family" that was featured in the February issue of Martha Stewart Living. Read about it here.

  1. I’ve always loved the idea of a picket fence too! It conjures up the image of a quiet and peaceful home. The fact that they’re not closed keeps you open to the world, and yet upholds your privacy. Functionally, it lets strong winds pass through, so they’ll stand a lot longer than closed fences. I think it’s so cute how you all got together to put it up and paint it, by the way. Great job!
