One of my “ongoing” projects has been gathering together small school photos of the girls. Good grief those photos were here and there and not in the right size. Everytime I discovered a school photo it was like Christmas for me, progress was so slow I was not sure the project would ever get finished. I eventually scanned the larger ones and found a place online that would convert my scans to whatever size I wanted. Finally I dared to hope that I could finish the project.
Some projects take on a life of their own. I was obsessed with finding the photos and trying to figure out what years they were from without asking the girls. Afterall I am their Mother and I should recall.
It was a project that I started a number of years ago…like about 15 years…uffda.
It must have been about 2002/2003 or so that I made scrapbooks for both of the girls that concentrated on their school days.
It was shortly after that when I found the perfect addition to their scrapbooks.
I wrapped them up as Christmas gifts. I think I got the years all correct except Jen’s 10th and 11th grade photos are reversed.
I also included a simple family tree. I have more detailed family trees that covers many more generations but this simple one is a great addition to a scrapbook
I was happy to finish this ongoing project that never made my list last year. It was the only “from the heart” project that I finished before Christmas.
It is really cold here. We are safe and warm and working on various projects and napping.
