Creating a Heritage Scrapbook

 If you're interested in attending a class on how to create a Heritage Scrapbook, let me know--I've set up a date and time for a 'first class--how to begin' for Saturday May 4th from 4-7 pm at my home. Space is limited to 10 participants. Cost will be minimal, less than $10, some supplies will be available. You will need to bring your photographs, memorabilia, your choice of scrapbook album--I will have scissors, pens, stickers, die-cuts, paper, etc I will show you how to create a themed scrapbook, and what to do when you don't have photographs for a particular time period in your ancestor's life. We will have a special guest the day of the class; someone who has been busy creating Heritage Scrapbooks for some time--I love her work! For more information, get in touch with me! You might leave a message here or email me!~ Hope to see you on Sat. May 4th, 2013! Light refreshments will be provided!

Marching into April and onto May

It's been a busy couple of weeks--work-wise and home-wise, as the weather hasn't cooperated very well in getting outdoors to garden, I've stayed in and been cleaning out closets and drawers! I've found more junk I need to do something with, than I ever thought I'd poked back! Omigosh! Dresses I'll never wear, tops I couldn't squeeze into if I wanted to; and shoes? Where did it all come from?! LOL! Since I'm into organizing at the office, thankfully, it's carrying over into the home life! I've put away files, sorted information that folks have called me about, and located more photos and documents I'd love to scan and get online! I'm getting ready to host some heritage scrapbook classes, so have also been doing some family history and photograph sorting of my own! I decided that if I died tomorrow, my kids wouldn't need or want to deal with all my 'junk' so think I'll do what I can while I'm living, so they don't have to! We three girls have been dealing with alot of that over at mama's house, and as we have been working on various projects over there, we look at ourselves and wish we were home doing the same thing! Ha! Nothing like visiting, and realizing you want to go home and clean house, literally and figuratively!
I'm the proud recipient of a 'new' washer and dryer! A really sweet friend got her a new set, and decided she'd give me her old set. It's definitely needed at my home, as I've been without a laundry since moving back to be close to my mom. It will be wonderful to get it all set up, and since I've been clipping photos and ideas for my 'dream laundry room' from Pinterest, can't wait to get started! Hence, the clean-out! I have all these wonderful ideas! Ideas but not skills to carry them through! Will be calling on some of my skilled friends!
