I have republished a calendar featuring photos from my Aunt Teri’s gorgeous garden in Winchester, Va (the photo above was her favorite). Teri passed away earlier this year. Proceeds from the sale of the calendars will go to the American Cancer Society’s lung cancer research fund. You can preview the calendar here (photos are from the 2010 edition).
This weekend, I had the opportunity to exhibit at the first Terp2Terp Marketplace during Maryland Day on the College Park campus of the University of Maryland. I had a great time talking about house histories and Creative Memories products with the alumni and family members who came through the exhibit hall. Thanks to all who stopped by to chat!
Other businesses on display in the exhibit hall included caterers, an organic personal product vendor, and even a music company.
I’m headed to Salt Lake City for RootsTech 2012 in a couple of days. I’m working on several exciting projects in the meantime though!
First is a house history that will be a gift for someone, but once the gift is given, I should be able to share it here.
Second, I’m working on a new Album Rescue Project. I purchased two more photo albums from an antique store here in Easton and I’m trying to track down to whom they belonged, and hopefully, their descendants. The photos in these albums are attached to black paper with various types of adhesive. I’m removing them to a new photo-safe album from Creative Memories.
Last, and certainly not least, I’m helping out Historic Easton with a couple of preservation projects. Check out their new web site for more information about the group! I’ll post further updates in coming weeks.
At the risk of spoiling the surprise for some of my friends and family who will receive these cards, below are some examples of cards that I made from the Noel and Holidazzle paper, stickers and embellishments available from Creative Memories this year.
