finally, i was able to start and almost finish, an album! i am at the most fun part - the embellishments! yeah! it feels good.
this time of year things are always just a little anxious around home, with school starting, the daylight ebbing, the weather changing and the holidays approaching everything is kinda out of sync, but as we all get our schedules together and get into a rhythm, everything seems to start to flow into place. i believe we are right at the beginning of that transition. thank goodness! there are still things "hAnGInG":
half of the garden needs to be cleaned
the patio and planters need tending to
the wool rugs need to be scrubbed
the girls "old" clothes have to be sorted and donated
and on, and on. geesh i don't want to think about that! here is what i am placing into the "step by step" side bar: an envelope album, all the photo's are taken, i will be writing the instructions tonight and hopefully uploading them by morning. i may make it a kit, it is really a lot of fun to do and goes together quickly. i used the new cosmo cricket storytime collection to make this one, so cute! i am beginning to enjoy the cricket as much as the daisy d's! although, all of the cricket papers are double-sided card stock, so i am trying to figure ways to use them showing both sides in the album. these little albums work well. it is hard for me to cover one side with glue and apply another card stock on the backside, it makes me feel like i am wasting. oh well, i'll dink around with this for a bit until the new christmas papers come in, ooh can't wait!
i see some have linked to dede's blog, thanks for doing that! what a great cause! well, i need to get those instructions done so i can finish embellishing this album. i'll post some pictures when i complete it.
everyone have a good night and keep linking and donating to dede! let's raise some bucks, let's make some noise and make a difference! -rebecca
