Default Scrap Therapy

When you make a scrap therapy/super personal art journally layout, what do you do with it? Do your print and keep in in a book? Just leave in your hard drive to visit later?

Inquiring minds want to know!

I used to have a separate scrapbook for those layouts, and I kept it in a separate place from the family's books. But I realized I was more comfortable not printing them at all. No one messes around in my computer files and might find them accidentally, but sometimes someone goes through my bookshelf.

I haven't printed mine yet, but I think I'll probably print them all in one or two books so I can reflect one them.

Usually my scrap therapy is in the moment so I don't print them or go back to them, though now that I've gotten into art journaling, I might print them out and stick them in a little album to look through one day

mine are stashed in a secret spot on my hard drive. one day when my kids are older and if/when they want to know about that sorta stuff, then i'll let them see it. i always wanted my mom to be 'normal' and not supermom, so i think they should be able to see that if they want.

I print them and put them in my album (have one for each of my kids, myself, my hubby and then one for events/things/places)

right now they are just on my hard drive... the only scrap therapy I've done have been over my crushing sadness of not being able to have another child... I don't want Jake to see them until he is way older... I just don't want him to ever think he isn't enough, kwim?

Yeah, I leave mine on my hard drive, too. They are way too personal for the normal albums.

Mine are on my hard drive, but I like the idea of putting them in my own personal folder.....and then printing an album for me....but I do want my kids to know that I am a "real" person and life ain't always grand, but we get through it

Same here. This is also my intention!

I save them on my hard drive to be printed later. I have old journals from middle school and high school and I hope to be able to save it all for my child to see when she is older. I don't know why...it was just something I always wanted to do.

they're put in my album, as they are part of my story. some of my stuff is never meant for print, and that gets deleted almost immediately.

I just wrote out a big long explanation for why I don't really do scrap therapy layouts anymore. But, that's a different discussion. So, I'll just say that the therapeutic layouts that I have done are sitting on my hard drive. I don't really mind people seeing them, but it's not something that I want in the family album out on the bookshelf that anyone visiting might pick up and look through, kwim?

I have one album that I consider my 'journal' or diary. I think someday those albums will be my legacy of life struggles, victories, growth.

It depends. I don't think I've ever done anything so personal that I wouldn't feel comfortable having it printed in an album. Like anyone ever looks through my pictures or albums! Anyone whom I would allow to look through those would already be aware that I am adopted, divorced, have struggled with my weight, etc.

After reading everyone's responses, I want to change my answer a bit. I'm a heavy journaler on most LOs, so I do plenty of LOs about everyday frustrations and struggles that could be considered scrap therapy but that I'm fine with anyone close to me reading. Those are in my regular albums.

Usually when I'm upset and working something out, I journal it because it helps me process, but I don't scrap it. For the rare time when I scrap that journaling, I don't want anyone to read it, ever. It's too personal and too in-the-moment; I write things that are too harsh to share, things that I'd want to word very carefully before saying to others. Those are the ones I hide away on the HD.

It depends on the LO really. When I make those pages it is literally like word vomit all over the page. I am uncensored and just writing down exactly how I feel, I literally write the what I would speak. Sometimes I get to the end of the page and read back over and think what exactly was that sentence supposed to say? Those pages I intend of printing off in 8x8 and making them into a little book (or 7) for me.
The pages that I would keep on my harddrive would be the ones that are about a certain thing somebody has done. I have problems expressing myself when somebody close to me upsets me badly or lets me down. I just say its fine and leave it at that but when I get home and I'm really upset I write down exactly what I should have said and how I feel. I'm working up to expressing myself more but until then those pages are my outlet. They will never be seen by anybody else and usually get deleted.

They just sit on my harddrive for now, but eventually I'll print them.

This is an interesting thread. I don't think I've ever done a lo too personal to share, but I do put the AAM or scrap therapy lo's in an album just for me. Most of my albums are about kids or grand kids, so I definitely wouldn't want a deeply personal page about my fears in the middle of a family album. But my adult kids have seen my just for me albums and it is fine with me if they read them. Like someone else said, above, I am okay with my kids knowing I am not superhuman.
