Now we’re happy to reveal exclusively that O’Dell will be releasing her second book,”Full of Love,” about keeping memories alive with scrapbooks, which has become a bit of a lost art thanks to digital photography and Internet photo galleries.

Written in conjunction with Creative Memories, “Full of Love” explores the power of the classic family photo album to create confident, secure, happy kids.

O’Dell learned the importance of scrapbooks from her own mother and grandmother. “The wonderful albums they created showed me how important it is to pass special memories from generation to generation.”

There’s no question that albums show kids they’re valued and they’re appreciated and they hold a special place in the family.” Scrapbooks also give children a chance to experience permanence and continuity in this fast-paced Web-driven world. “Full of Love” includes peeks at albums Nancy made of her family and friends, including the many famous people she has gotten to know in her long career as a TV host. You also get scrapbook tips and photo advice from Nancy’s friend, photographer and editor Ulrica Wihlborg. Plus you can check out sample album pages to inspire you and your kids. “Full of Love” by Nancy O’Dell, as well as a scrapbooking kit called the “The Nancy O’Dell Collection”, will be available in October 2010 through Creative Memories and national book retailers. In addition to the upcoming book release, O’Dell is juggling multiple hosting and charity projects. She’s co-hosting Tim McGraw and Faith Hill‘s event “Nashville Rising” on Tuesday night (June 22). The concert, a benefit for flood recovery, also features Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride.
And as The Dish Rag previously reported O’Dell continues supporting the fight against Muscular Dystophy, designing her own jewelry line and shilling products as spokesperson for a hair care line.
