I started my mini album for my nephew. He is my brother's new baby. They don't live near me so I am not sure if I should mail it when I am done or just wait as I will see them in July or Aug. when they come to our cottage.
Well I have never made a name or word album so this is new to me. So I am not sure if I am doing this right, but I guess it doesn't matter as long as it turns out in the end.
What I did was cut out the letters on my Cricut (had to dust that baby off first). Then I glued them on old file folders. This is just a template and I didn't want to waste my card stock so I used these. That is why it looks like crap...i mean not very nice.
The letters are cut at 5" and each letter is on a new page. I am sure most of you know what these books look like. His last name is vertical and then I have a plain last page. There will be 5 chip/book board pages in all. I am not sure if I will add other pages in between, or an envelope. I will decide as I go, as I always do.
I figured if I posted it then it would give me the push to actually finish it before July LOL. I was thinking of making a video to show the steps, but if it looks like crap or doesn't turn out......hey then I just wouldn't post the video DUH.
Ok so what was my day like today, because I am sure you are all just dying to find out (insert sarcasm here).
I found a dead squirrel on my roof.
When I went out this morning I noticed something on the roof. At first I just thought it was those huge fluff balls that come from the poplar trees out back.
Then I went out with the girls and it was still there, but was flipped over, and I noticed something that looked like a tiny leg bone.
When Jacob came over I asked him. He is over 6' tall and I am under 5' so I figured her could check it out better than me. At first he thought it was a rat. WTH, we have killer rats here. ( I thought of the book Domain) I have never seen a rat here. As it turned out it was a very dried up, decomposed squirrel. The tail didn't have any fur left on it.
So Jacob went behind the fence and gave it a proper burial. I asked him why he didn't just chuck it over the fence (that is where the crow got it from). Well the girls go back there to take pics and they didn't want to run into it.
Wow that was a long paragraph about a dead squirrel. LOL
I took Ashley driving again. She drove Heather and I around so Heather could drop off some resume's and fill out job applications. She did 5 today.
I brought my dad groceries.
Kristy and her friend Allison missed the bus coming home from school. I picked them up and then got them to carry my dad's groceries up to him. Payment girls, welcome to the real world. Hahaha.
Thats all for today. So what have you done today to make you feel proud.
