My Other Vice

I've been spending a lot of time with my other vice, scrapbooking, recently.

Mainly, I'm making a dozen of these memory books as favors for a family reunion we are having in Maine this summer.

I purchased these accordian albums and I'm decorating them so that the guests can add their own pictures when they get home. (Most are coming from New Jersey).

The fronts are mostly all the same, but the insides are all different - using up my paper stash, which is as large as my yarn stash. At least paper is flat and doesn't take up as much room!

The last panel on the right side of the accordian is a pocket that we will be putting a DVD slide show of old family photos in. That is if I ever get them all scanned and e-mailed to my DD who is the slide show expert.

The reunion is the weekend of July 17,18 & 19 and will be held at the Bluff House Inn.
We have the whole Inn reserved - I'm really excited about it!

I haven't completely neglected my knitting though.
I made another baby hat for a baby girl expected in July. Our cook at school is about to become a great grandmother! This was knit with Plymouth Encore Sock yarn and is being modeled by .....a vase?

jane, you crack me up....the baby vase model. I LOVE IT.

Excellent job on the family reunion scrapbooks....they are lovely. Tell ya what, I have about 2.5 feet of stacked paper and 16 years worth of photos. Wanna help? I do ONE page, get overwhelmed and quit for a year or two.

Great job!
