Default The memory box

Does anyone have a cruise memory box? I have several with airline boarding passes, every room card from every cruise. Leis and dried flowers, documents, valentines (my dh's birthday; several valentines cruises). Yes, I am extremely sentimental.

No, I don't have a Cruise Box, I have a Cruise Room! Seriously! I have a whole room full of cruise memorabilia, photos, glasses, ships, mugs, souvenirs, etc. etc. and it is decorated with a full wall size mural of a tropical beach! My little escape from reality....

Default The Memory Box

I have none of the above, but I do have lots and lots of pics from all of our trips, on land and of cruises.

No...not yet.

I do have a box of sorts that keeps every little love note my husband has written me in the past 8 years.

We create a photo album or two from every cruise and include the "stuff" you mentioned as part of it.

I don't have a box but like Rollerdonna I have a room. I don't call mine a " cruise " room but a " travel " room. As I look around me now I see the walls covered with those wonderful ( to me ) colorful Caribbean paintings , wood carvings, cups, and momentos from all over.

My daughter-in-law travels internationally in her work and brings me things from places I'll likely never get to visit. So, thanks to her and the trips and cruises I have been fortunate enough to take, I have a collection of stuff from Singapore to Germany to Africa to the Caribbean. Heck, I even have something from Florida. I also keep photo albums and along with photos I keep what some might think silly, such as tickets, sail & sign cards, brochures, etc. It's fun and helps on a cold, cold day like today.

Yes, I have all my memories in my scrapbooks. all 8 of them.
I do scrapbooks for a living. I have done many albums for others.
I'm working on 2 baby albums, and have the pages planned for our next cruise on Feb 18.

I have an album from each cruise. They average 100 pictures in each as well as the tours and capers. I look through them to get a recharge of the memories.
