WOYWW #399

Linking in with our hostess Julia & the WOYWW community at: WOYWW

This week my desk is filled with ideas & some beautiful papers but alas my time for scrapping is at empty this week as I am busy with writing procedures & protocols for work as we are introducing a new service for patients.  As I write the steps necessary to conduct this service,  I use myself as a test case, can I follow along exactly as the steps are written.  It has been back to that drawing board not my scrap/crafting table that I have been going.  

So this is how I left my crafting space Monday night.



I am putting together some papers to design 2 Valentines & February double page layouts - I did get some of the papers grouped into which to use with which.





I have also been in the thought & crafting idea stages for capturing photoless stories about my GrandMother & Mother before I forget & I wanted to give a heritage feeling to them - I did a mock up/rough draft of a title page.  The jars are cut from vellum.  Early stages ...


 


You don't stumble upon your heritage.  It is there waiting to be explored & shared.   Robbie Robertson

  2. Hi Mary Lou, love the vellum idea, definitely very nostalgic.Good idea to use yourself as a test subject, and keep reading it through. As a trainer myself, it can be very hard to explain something step by step, without missing things out, that you yourself know and do as a matter of course. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

  9. I like the look of the memory jars a lot. I'm working on a spread about this month's weather ... one side traditional 12x12, the other a divided pocket page (9 squares of 4x4).

  10. Yay! I'm so happy to see some hearts on a desk. I don't know why, but there's a surprising lack of Valentine love going on yet. Hmm. Happy Wednesday. Sandy Leigh #45

  12. Making albums for memories is a great idea as future generations really never know how they thought and really lived just from photos.

  16. Are you planning on putting stories on tags in the memory jars? That's a fantastic idea for photo-less stories!

  18. I really hate when real life interrupts my creativity. I am under a writing deadline. If I can clear it early, then I'm taking two full days to play. Join me! Looking forward to seeing your Valentine projects. Creative Blessings! Kelly #42
