This Is Turning Into A Craft Blog...

cause there sure hasn't been any stitching happen'!

I finished copying my photos! They are mounted and cropped. Now onto my mom's two large green totes. I saw them today -- not going to be an easy task.

The picture shown here in the front is the oldest one. It shows my husband's grandfather as a newborn and his great-grandfather circa 1900. The little girl in the photo on the left - me at about 4. My shirt says something about being a little stinker. The other 3 pics showing - l to r - me holding Logan at his first Christmas, the kids with us this Christmas and the four of us at Courtney's high school graduation. In total 248 pictures for the tree to date.

This morning I woke up and decided to work on the German Paper Stars only I use ribbon. These are being made for the tree of 2014. Yes, I plan my trees out that far. The tree for 2013 will have my old Hallmark ornaments (Logan asked for this one). Anyway, here's a link for directions - go here.

I did get some sewing done -- on the machine. I had mending climbing the wall - 2 pairs of pajama bottoms, a pillow case, and son-in-love's quilt. All finished and done. Promise tomorrow will find me stitching!

Have a great night!

I can not believe you plan your trees so far in advance. Good for you. A girl had to have a goal I say. Love the blue stars.

Love your blog, Denise. And, love your crafty project! I have been doing the same thing, working with old family photos. Isn't so wonderful to have such special pictures and memories? I have been working on a family history album. I just love your finishing technique for your photos, your tree will look lovely!
Have a wonderful weekend!
