Latest project
My Mother is turning 60 this month, and I know that she is absolutely thrilled that I am posting that fact for the world to see! :-) Hee. Hee. I wanted to make a special gift this year, and in so doing I am creating a HUGE mess:
in the homeschool room
and the hall!
I decided to do a scrapbook of memories. All of Mom's siblings, her husband and children are in the process of sending me their memories (most of them good and a few not so good :-), and I am compiling them in this little book. I have already shed some tears, and I know she will! The quote I placed on the front is, "Memories start in the heart and live in it forever. ~ Amanda Cox." It is coming together nicely, and I am very excited about it!

~The first page~
The little ribbon is not squashed in the book,
but the scanner lid certainly did a number on it for this photo!

I did that for my Dad on his 50th, since Mom got the family photo albums in the divorce. He really liked it!
