Ho, Ho, Ho!! Merry Christmas!

The cold is upon us here in the northern part of the world and Thanksgiving has been celebrated in good fashion. Oh, the blessing of family and friends joining us for a sit down dinner. I think we served about 45 people that day. Some were here who have been gone for a while and others were away doing what they needed to do. As always we miss those we love when they are gone and we are glad to have those around who can come. Mix that with great food and lots of love and sibling teasing and in our family you have the recipe of a great time!!

I must confess that I love my siblings and my parents more today than I did when we all lived at home. I really didn't think that was possible because I loved them fiercly then. It only makes sense then that I would want to preserve some moments and so it is in my life. I love digital scrapbooking that can capture those moments and get them in a place where they are presentable! As you gather with your kin, remember that it is important to love them and care for them. Capture moments with them when you can and then put it somewhere that you can look at it again and again. I love it when my kids run for their books and show them off, show their friends that they have a history and they love what they are getting.

Well, we are officially into the holiday season and I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas or what ever you may be celebrating! I love celebrations and how they mark our lives. Family photos, snapshots and pictures of all kinds are on the mind and we try to capture the memories that we want to keep and Heritage Makers helps so much to get that all in order and put together in such a way that we can save what we have! I love being able to put some order to my memories and share them with others.

As Christmas lights infect my soul and I have a desire to be better and to share in this season of joy, the music and lights add to everything and just plain make things richer and better to enjoy. I love capturing things on camera so that I can remember what we were doing and the good time we had. If you have a desire to get organized and want some help with all of this, give me a shout and I will be glad to help you out!!

Moving into Winter

With the time change and the seasons moving into the colder, darker season of our year, it brings with it a little more time at home, time to organize and get ready for the busy spring; time to slow down and relax a little; and hopefully a little down time as well. This is a great time to organize photos and get them into some order. Also a time to put photos on paper and remember the colorful days that we have spent playing, spending time with family, working hard and being outside. Don't hesitate to check out this way of putting pictures in some kind of format so that they can be remembered. Gifts for Christmas, birthdays, and any other event are all available here.

I love this site because you don't have to use a template, I love building my own stuff and putting my own things together! That is the fun of getting going on this digital method. When I get an idea, I just start putting it together and it seems to build itself. I just love it. Tons of paper, elements and cute things to add to the pages make it so very easy to put things together. If you want a project that you can just put pictures into, there are plenty of templates there to look at.

Have fun and remember that keeping things in an organized format helps keep them organized in your house and in your head. I like that.

Fall is Really in Full Swing!!

Well, it has finally happened!! Fall has come and school is back in session and the homework is flowing into the household. Need an idea to organize all of this? Here it is.... Scan in some of their writing from the first of the school year, scan in the artwork with the file name as the date and child's name or code. Keep the most precious stuff and toss the rest. When you have all the files scanned, you can find them more easily. Then you can put them in the book, size them and you have them forever and no physical mess. It is truly the way to organize.

One more idea... how about scanning all of the stuff you have in your filing cabinet? Now there is a concept for organizing all of the papers we bring home and think we should keep.

Fall is Here

It is amazing that fall is here and it is in the air, infecious in all of its glory. The leaves are changing and the kids are well back into school and our schedules are finally settling down. It is time to get the pictures from summer organized and into a book so they can be remembered. We want all of the memories to be coordinated and the pictures accounted for. That makes everything memorable and worthwhile! If you would like some help, I would love to show you the possibilities!!

Fall is in the air!

Well, school is back in session and we are all wishing we were back on the mountain and enjoying one more day of vacation! I know we all had a really good time this weekend!! I love family camp! So fun to be up in the trees and associating with each other and just plain being around each other in the family is a wonderful thing. I like to spend my off hours putting family stuff together and getting it organized so that it is easier to work on my family history and scrap booking. Getting those pictures together is so fun and then when they print in a book they are so nice. Enjoy what you do!!

The Madness Starts Tomorrow

The new chapter in our lives starts today. This is the week that school starts back in session. I am really looking forward to life getting back to normal and things settling in until November when things in my world will explode once again. The pictures start flowing for High School stuff and those kids are involved in everything and if they aren't, they should be. I hate to see the warm weather come to an end though. I don't think I really got warm yet this summer. The tomatoes are just barely coming on and I am thinking that they are a couple of weeks late. I am finally starting to see my peaches turn but school and activities are just starting to move anyway. Well - take those pics and lets get them into a book where we can have the rememberances that we want to take with us. Digital scrapbooking is the funnest thing since sliced bread. Don't wait, get started!!
