Christmas Day 2009

Here we have (back row)
my self,mum,Tiffany-my niece,then her mum (my older sister)
Philly,in front we have Keri,my sons girl friend.

Tiffany loved the wedding album,she said that the photos
look so much better presented on nice backgrounds rather
than just in plastic sheets,here she is looking through
the album
Here's Livy and Kale,they loved my Santa sack,
it makes all the hard work and expense so worth
while.Hes such a little cute,so placid and happy
In years to come he will be bigger than this sack,
and hope fully if I'm gone he will remember his
auntie Carol lol.

Livy said::
"Hers a few photos. Some with Kale and his awesome sack! Its really cool – Thanks again. It must have taken you ages, it will be so cool now we can get it out every year."

I started.I actually learned several techniques
doing this canvas.

forward to catching up again at the next retreat

I store my label sets in a folder with clear sleeves,this way i can flick through and see what i have
and they stay together

My sticker alphabets i keep in this concertina folder,again its easy to find what i wont.

Storing this way means i can take these with me to crops and camps easily.You can also store rubons this way. If you would like to join in our chat about storage ideas etc,just click HERE we would love to shear ideas with you
