~ Farewell to Me!

Here is my latest Bind-it-All project, a farewell book (for me, actually) that my NAVFAC co-workers from all over the world added their farewell messages in.  Some of the well-wishes were added in person while some were emailed and added to the book.


What is really great about creating a project for yourself is that you can make anything you want it to be.  I added little strips inside to show where I have been and when with Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

~ Mini Minibook, More Surgery News and Twilight


This little book is probably the littlest one I’ve ever made.  It measures about 3 1/2″ square.  I might actually make more of these to give to my hubby’s family members at a family reunion next month.  Clear Scraps has the cutest little kits now with chipboard and acrylic pieces.  I sandwiched the tabbed chipboard pieces with matching acrylic covers.  I printed the photos in wallet size and trimmed them just a bit.

Just another week ’til the Twilight DVD comes out!  AAAAAAHHHH!  I’m so excited I can’t stand it.  Even my 10 year old son is looking forward to the Hot Topic DVD release party next Friday.  (So excited!)

Alrighty, for the more unsavory news–I need to have my gallbladder taken out.  I didn’t realize the various pains I had been experiencing for months now were all related to gallstones in my gallbladder.  Geez.  Anyway, I’ll post something again about it after I meet with the surgeon next week.

One last thing!  If you’d like to join my class on the All Moments Remembered member board, please sign-up before March 30.  If you are unable to make it, just drop me a line and I’ll send you the PDF file with full directions, supply and tool list.  Send your email to leasanders@yahoo.com with the subject line “Living Simply PDF”.
