I am getting ready to start a huge project I have been wanting to do for over five years!
The photos have been ready to go for a few years along with the album and a little bag of memorabilia. Now I just need to pull it all together.
I am using a WRMK 8 1/2 x 11 black leather ring binder, and will be following a basic formula throughout that will hopefully speed up the process. It was inspired by a similar album Ali Edwards that I saw in her Life Artist book a few years ago. I think it is going to be fun to finally have it done and on the shelf!
And now for something else fun! Many years ago, I became friends with a group of women through
this woman, mainly because of scrapbooking. We had a closed group we called "Suziebeezieland" which was drama free and full of great support. As the years have passed, the closed portion no longer exists, but many of the friendships still do. We still hang out through blogs and Facebook.
Recently, one of my friends decided to put together a "Favorite Things" mail party. She divided us into groups of five, and we are supposed to send happy mail containing some of our favorite things to the other four members in the group. In return, I will also receive four different packages as well. Kind of a much, much smaller version of Oprah's favorite things episode, but by mail.
I am not going to say what is going to be in my favorite things package yet in case one of my friends is reading. But what I would like to do is put together an extra package to mail off as a giveaway for one of my blog friends.
I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you through blogging, and would like to include one of you. I will be picking up my goodies on Friday and mailing this weekend, so there is a quick turnaround here. You need to comment by Thursday night by 6pm, and I will announce the winner on Friday morning :)
And you never know. There just may be some of those coconut m&m's inside from my last post ;)
