COVID Diaries Chapter Seven

Shadowbox Project

This project doesn't really qualify as downsizing, since I had maybe 10 boxes of family memorabilia before doing the six shadowboxes.  Some ephemera I put into page protectors in binders and large loose photos in scrapbooks.  I think I actually ended up with more stuff, but it's all been refreshed and way better organized.  I did actually donate some items and tossed a few things. 

I packed everything away again, but will display it in my next place so I can look at it more often.  Until this year, I hadn't looked at any of it for at least the seven years since I moved here.

I am still planning to do some writing about some of these objects and my parents' lives.  Instead of Creative Writing Workshop, I may sign up for Life Story Writing class next semester.
