Despite the frigid temperature outside, we were able to gather at my home and make the family heratige albums. We first talked about proper care and storage of old family pictures and documents and how to preserve them. It is very important to realize that htese images are being lost forever while they are stored in basements and attics and subject to the harsh conditions therein.
After that lecture, we promptly started making our albums...we did paper bag albums, which oddly enough are not acid or lignin free. So basically, everything we talked about was just tossed away and we had some fun. The ladies brought photocopies of old pictures. Some ladies brought picures of their grandkids. One sister made an adoption book instead of the family heratige album. It was just a fun night. As usual, when ever I do an album or a paper art project night, the evening draws to a close close to midnight or even later. This night was no exception. So, I offer a big THANKS to all the daddies and husbands out there who so willingly kept the home fires burning as we scrapped. Here are some photos: Enjoy!
