I am at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland in Anaheim CA, 45 minutes from my home.

Here is more on my mini album.

Album size is 5 1/4" x 6 1/2" x 2"
Has space for 41 photos or journal entries
it's made up of:

 On the right is the first set of pages, there are 2 envelopes joined together and a tab in one of them and a card in the other.

Sneak Peek

For the last month I have been working on a gift for team members.  I try every year to make something special for the people in my first downline and my directors who attend convention.  Attending convention is a big thing for many reasons, one of them being it is costly to attend.  We learn a lot while we are there and get the opportunity to renew old friendships and start new ones.  I know some of the people attending are giving up something else to attend and I appreciate all their efforts thru the year to make that happen.  I have made several different things over the years but last year and this year I made Scrapbook Mini Albums for them.  I make these from scratch and put a little bit of me in everyone I make. This year there were 24 albums to be awarded at convention. Here is a sneak peek just for you.  The rest of the album will post on Wednesday, the day they receive them from me.

Come back and visit again to see the inside and some of details on this album.

Hummingbird Growing

It's hard to believe that this is the baby.  Can't believe how fast it grew.  It won't be long before it is leaving the nest.  It has been a wonderful experience watching, worrying and learning about Hummingbirds and their babies.  I am going to miss him/her when it's gone.
