Moved Again


First off, I would like the thank all of you who visited me last week and left such wonderful comments!  You are all the most wonderful ladies I have ever met who I have technically never met. ;)  I must also apologize for not returning the favor, but unfortunately I had become ill with a flu bug and did nothing but sleep for a couple of days. 

For those of you who enjoy nosing about crafty and creative work spaces, visit Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, to take a peek, it's a lot of fun I promise.

Now onto my workdesk, which has moved once more, this time to my kitchen counter.  The simple truth is I just didn't have enough clear space on my real workdesk to work on this project.  The project is a prototype for an event that I have volunteered to help with at the library.  My local library is awesome!  They allow me use of their meeting room each week (for free), for my scrapbooking classes which is such a benefit for me.  I am not sure I could supply enough space in my home for scrapbookers as it is, at times, a job in which you need to spread out.  The library also sponsors a program called Streams to Rivers which pairs the local Senior Citizens with the 3rd and 4th graders at the school to do scheduled activities together.  Isn't this a great idea?  Anyway, I will be instructing them on how to make paper bag albums for their get together in mid-November to use with the pictures each student will be taking of their families over the next several weeks.  The Seniors will help them to assemble their albums while each generation is interacting with one other. 

Happy Wednesday!
