Not the blog post I planned...

I documented today's work with the idea of blogging it. Instead I'm playing around with family photos. Remembering snapshots of childhood. Noticing resemblances in our children to ourselves at the same age....
Shedding bucket-loads of tears.
I'm making something to celebrate my mother and the family she made. I hope it turns out ok and I hope to have it finished by Sunday.
If it works, I'll show you.

I love old pictures. It's so neat to look at them and be taken back to another time and place.

I think that it is so important that we document our non-electronic memories in our blog's. Scanning pictures in might take a while, but it is so important.

Can't wait to see what you have made.
