- favorite movies you saw over the summer (get listings and reviews off the internet)

Mark Twain was a lifelong creator and keeper of scrapbooks. He took them with him everywhere and filled them with souvenirs, pictures, and articles about his books and performances. But in time, he grew tired of the lost glue, rock-hard paste, and the swearing that resulted from the standard scrapbook process. So, he came up with the idea of printing thin strips of glue on the pages to make updates neat and easy to do. In 1872, he patented his "self-pasting" scrapbook, and by 1901, at least 57 different types of his albums were available. It would be his only invention that ever made money.

As a kid I was a vacation photographer and my scrapbooks reflected just that. I didn't go to my first scrapbook party until I was thirty-six and from that night on I was hooked. That night I scrapped pages of my family, hobbies, friends, and home to give our two children (ages 5 and 7) that we were adopting from another state. We wanted them to see some faces before we met. At that point they had only heard our voices over the phone. It was an amazing time and sad because they came with no baby pictures. They love their scrapbooks and cling to the pictures and memories as if they were gold.
