Let’s Talk Smash Books!

What is a Smash Book? It is merely a scrapbook that you fill up with all the things that are in that box, under your bed, filled with notes, photos, and cards! The precious things that are important to you.

The beauty of a Smash Book is there are no rules! I am not a ‘gifted’ scrapbooker! I have the attention span of a mouse! So, all I did was cut and paste and smash everything I had onto the pages in this book. And I tied a bright, happy polka-dotted ribbon around it to keep it closed!!! Smash it in there! No rules.

The purpose of my Smash Book was explicitly for use in my fibro toolbox. Things that brighten my mood and remind me who I am when I reach the lowest depth of a pain flare or a depression flare are in this book to encourage me to just hold on! I will get through this flare, and I will return to these things that make me happy.

I will list the items that you may find helpful to make your very own Smash Book. I  purchased all of my supplies from Amazon as I find them to be ‘cost-friendly’ with many alternatives! Here are the items I chose. Go to Amazon, Wal-Mart, or a store of your liking and select items you like! Make up your very own Smash Book.

What will your Smash Book look like?

  1. I love the freedom in creating without rules…I’ve been actively working on my travel smash creations in a Moleskin book I picked up from our local art gallery, your lovely post reminded me that I’ve got some more “smashing” to do!
