My wonderful hubby bought me one of those gadgets to record your old VHS videos onto DVD. I spent several afternoons and evenings playing with it. And though I have a long way to go, I got a great start. It is a project that takes you down memory lane. Some days I wasn't sure whether to laugh, or to cry. Here's just a snippet from the good ol' days of having little ones in the house. This is my little girl (who is now 24 and a mommy of 1) getting down and dirty in the kitchen. We began the training young around here!
Because I had to set up this new recording device in our office/craft room, I had to do some cleaning and reorganizing first. And my work/craft table was first on the hit list.
And then I got this brilliant idea as I was sorting through my photos for scrapping, crafts, fabric and sewing projects (that I may never get to). Immediately I had to stop cleaning and begin sewing.

AND SPEAKING OF THE SISTERS-IN-LAW...Pulling off a nice gift of the homemade variety often takes some planning ahead. This year I worked all summer to pull off this year's gift. It turned out to be a really nice gift. Check it out.
I cut and dried herbs all summer long. Put the dried herbs in little packages purchased at Michaels. Made vanilla (several months before) using the tips on making homemade vanilla at Tammy's Recipes. It's wonderful BTW. Included an herb guide on what each herb is used for. And wrapped it all up nicely with a Christmas towel purchased at a discount store. Each SIL also received a tampon angel for a little humor!
Thats all for now. Still a lot of projects and organizing to do. Until we meet again............
