I’m making good progress so far with Happiness Box 2018! My goal was to make it not as overwhelming as 2017’s box and so far I’m keeping that goal. Where the box is now is where the box was at in April 2017. I’m thinking if I keep to a note and/or photo each day, I will be able to hold out until December without using the boxtop like last year!
19 August 2018
12 June 2017. I sadly didn’t take photos of the Happiness Box each month last year, but you can see June last year was bursting. I didn’t fill the bottom half until 9 August 2017.
Tonight I am going to scrapbook for the first time in a month. I’ll be honest with you, I’m over scrapbooking 2017’s because it’s overwhelming. I’m hoping I can expand the scrapbook and I joined the Scrapbooking.com forum to get advice. If worse comes to worse, I’ll create volume 1 and 2. Volume 1 will be the scrapbook, then volume 2 will be whatever couldn’t fit into the album, held together with metal rings. The goal is to get it done by 31 December 2018. I might just throw the notes in.

Hi, Jessica Marie!
I am excited to see your Happiness Boxes, the 2017 entering the scrapbook phase, and the 2018. I agree that it makes more sense to add only one or two key items to the box from each special event or highlight in your year to avoid filling it too fast. I loved scrapbooking in the early 2000s, a hobby that evolved into blogging in 2008.
I wish you a safe and happy week ahead, dear friend JM!
I can see that! I started scrapbooking and blogging around the same time.
