Weekly Update

Another week come and gone. Sometimes I wonder where the days go in such a hurry. It is hard to realize that Thanksgiving and soon to be followed by Christmas is upon us.
I have had a pretty quiet weekend. As usual did not accomplish all I wanted but still in all a quiet weekend.
Saturday was class with Crystal at Devine Memories. We did a heritage album out of a coin folder. The book is absolutely wonderful and Crystal put a lot of time in on all the small details that make this such a special book. I did my Great Grandmother Anna Struchen. I have some pictures of her but know very little about her. It was interesting to go through the old pics and find some for this album. I loved looking at the small glimpses you get of the fashion and life way back then. Below are pics of my finished album. Actually I need to add the names to the pics and then it will be truely finished.
