Well, not soup, alphabet scrap actually. But I liked the ring of alphabet soup!
Cathy Zielske of Bits & Pieces (a very enjoyable slice of life kind of blog) once ran a scrapbook workshop inspired by the book “Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. The idea is to focus on the everyday, the mundane, all the small routine moments that make up a life. It’s not all birthdays, holidays, weddings and trips to Disney World 365 days a year. But to look at our scrapbooks and photo albums one might think life was one long party! So starting with “A” and wrapping up with “Z” think about what little snippets of your life begin with a given letter. You could easily journal this encyclopedia of you instead of scrapping it. Or create the “Encyclopedia of Someone You Love”.
For me, “A” could be Acadia or the first time I made an Asparagus Spring Pie or when a former literacy student of mine learned to spell “A**hole” correctly (no W) as she yelled at her boyfriend and spelled her opinion out for him!
Yup. I think I’m going to enjoy this project!
