WOYWW

My baby Petie is feeling alittle left out these days.....











This Heritage Album seems to have taken on a life of it's own...My mom and I have "lived" with these people for about 6 months now....People I hardly knew just by their names I now know who is who and who belongs to who 5 generations back....My mom has been doing the research, getting old census, marriage license, birth records, military records, death certificates etc...then 4 weeks ago I started scrapping the Heritage Album...it has grown past my scrap room...we are now living with a folding table in the middle of the dining room floor....the dining room table is mostly covered, the table in my scrap room is covered and the desk in the family area is covered....I have now gotten 33 pages done in the 4 weeks. My mom, that lives 2 miles from me, has moved in to help with chores so I can focus my "free" time on this....since the dead line to get it sent out is the 10th of August (it is for her cousin's 90th birthday). I've learned a lot about my history and a lot about the country along the way too.....we have gotten a lot of laughs also....It has been a ton of work but I've enjoyed it and so glad that we did this while my mom is still around to keep who is who straight...if I was doing this on my won I would have gotten so frustrated and given up loooooooog ago.......but now it is done and will be easy to duplicate for others in the family....I also think it is now time to get my nieces addicted to scrapping so I'm not the only scrapper in the family....Scroll down jsut past the fishing card to see the pages I have already done....

Love FH ...it is even more adictive than scrapping. I do LO's now and then when I get the urge and inspiration and put them on my other blog. I managed to get some information from my Mum before she passed away in 2000 and I am so greatful as most photos would have meant nothing. She also told me stories which make a lot of names come alive.
Hope you get yours all sorted befor the deadline xx
Love you pets

How many laptops? And erm....presumably not naked man!!! You have a great space there - genius way of having your heat gun close at hand but not in the way. Love the leather albums too, very nice.

Chrissie said...

Goodness what a huge amount of space and stuff you have.
If we crafters lined up our stash, it would stretch around the world many, many times I'm sure!
