Still Working on it

I've been watching a few of the hoarder shows lately, I shouldn't, really. I start thinking that I see myself in the people who, btw, can not even sit at a table to have a meal. Once the shows are over though, I snicker because my home looks sterile compared to theirs. However, I do have my seemly not important supplies for crafting and I find them in the oddest ways. Take this notebook, it's a outdated manual for plumbing parts my husband had. Upon watching my husband throwing away the many sheets of useless information, it occurred.


The perfect solution to consolidating years of family photos. And although I had to redo my covering because the first one was too small! I'm very happy with the end results.



My photo album holds three of the normal magnetic albums, that's three years of our family.


Oh, so nice. C&G Design

Oh Dawn sweetie...
Beautiful, you did an exquisite job. Just beautiful. I love that you made the frame for the front of it. You color and fabrics are just wonderful choices.

Love making photo albumns. They are a little painful sometimes with the glue gun, but they sure do make for a wonderful gift.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. Thank you for sharing again. Country hugs and much love...Sherry
