This week Shannon, over at Rocks In My Dryer, is hosting a backwards version of Works-For-Me Wednesday. So instead of stunning you with my brilliance this week, I get to ask a question, and hope you might have some ideas or suggestions for me.
I volunteered to be the keeper of family photos from my grandmother’s estate. I brought them all home, sorted through them, and put them in a bunch of little piles all over my dining room table. In my attempt of organizing at least a century’s worth of photographs, I have separated them in to two categories: black and white photos, and color photos. I’m going nuts with my dining room looking like it does, I’d show you a picture of my dining room table, but I’m pretty sure that would scare you all away.
My question is, Now What? What do I do with them? How do I store them? Do I put them in an album (with acid free/lignon free paper) even though I don’t know the story behind the photo? Do I put them in a special kind of photo storage box? Stuff them in a shoe box and call it done? How do I categorize them? By era? By person? By location? I don’t really know what to do with them. I am in desperate need of advice, and seeing the top of my dining room table again some time this century.
Please, help me figure out what – works for me!
