From my cousin:

"I'm not bossy. I just suffer from indecision paralysis less than others."

I love it! Might I suggest, though, that the term "bossy" be embraced, and her quote be considered one of "bossy"'s many awesome definitions.

I'm loving Donna Downey's new fabric items made for scrapbookers. And entire hour long video work shops about layering fabric and paper. That's gotta have some great ideas. I'll try one and post again about how it was.
Live Life Inspired. Dream With Possibility! Donna Downey

More vintage fabrics! I gave up on finding information on the internet about dating fabric, and headed to the library. Now its off to the bookstore today.
You know, I would have thought the web would have tons of info on this. If anyone knows a good site, please let me know! I am a sponge ready to learn!!!

Getting ready to post some of my first vintage fabrics to my Ebay store, and they aren't just fabric; they are vintage dish towels with some of the coolest designs, mostly travel souvenirs. I'm hoping scrapbookers and mixed media artists will be as interested in these as quilters and collectors will. Just take a sneak peak close up look at how cool:

Perhaps I am crazy? Having been working on organizing, gathering info on, and scanning my mother's side of the family's photos for MANY years already, not to mention some of my Dad's side:
I have taken on my biological father's side of the family - and they are just about as messy as my mother's side: mostly loose and in boxes. With auntie's help, thank goodness.
How do we end up the Keepers of the Family Stories & Photos? I'm not sure, but I know most of the other family members appreciate it. Show some interest in family history and genealogy, and voila, you assigned the task! Ok, ok, and be willing! The secret to success: to know that you do not have to do it all at once. It could take years. Decades even. But once they are digitized, you can easily get copies to multiple family members. That makes there chances of preservation so much greater.
