We have decided to go ahead and have an in-person open house for Gabe, after all, but I started this blog to share his albums, and I will finish! 🙂 We have plenty of family out of town and out of state, who won’t be able to attend, anyway. So hopefully this blog will stillContinue reading “School Portraits Album Flip-through”
Right now, people all over the world are feeling the heart-wrenching pain of having loved ones in the hospital. Making it much worse is the fact that the people in the hospital are often alone, because visitors are being kept at bay to control the spread of coronavirus. When our younger son (he’s 6) cameContinue reading “So, so sick!”
Second grade in review. Gabe’s virtual open house photo display, continued.
Being a pack rat sometimes has its benefits.
One of my favorite ways to capture the life of one of my kids as a student is to chaperone field trips. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has always been one of my kids’ favorite places to visit, but when they get to go with a classroom full of friends, it’s even more enjoyable!

Gabe played soccer from the time he was 4 until he was 12 (or maybe until the end of age 11?) years old. He hasContinue reading “Sports Album: Soccer”

He also played a year for school, in 8th grade, before deciding he had a lot more fun playing on a rec leagueContinue reading “Sports Album: Basketball”
Gabe played baseball from age 5 to age 17, multiple times a year, so we are swimming in baseball photos! I wanted to make sure the main team and player photos were scrapped, so I created a template that I could use for all of his seasons, just changing out the paper and embellishments. You’llContinue reading “Sports Album: Baseball”
Last weekend, I got a surprising phone call. An important man in my life had passed away. No, it wasn’t my husband. Or my son. Or my dad. It was Father John—more formally, the Rev. John P. Roof—the priest who held my attention with his infectious laugh, his sometimes-off-kilter sense of humor, and his genuine loveContinue reading “If only we could all be like him (God sure called home a good one!)”
I have to admit it: The future of scrapbooking seems to be limited. Yep, I said that out loud. In public. For the world to see. Today, Becky Higgins and Cathy Zielske posted on Facebook a link to a Studio 5 production called “Is Scrapbooking Dead?” that will air tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 14. My gutContinue reading “My two cents: Is scrapbooking dead?”
