The Lahti boys of Brownsmead, Oregon...part 1...

As part of my care for the elderly I help them get their life's in a scrapbook/Genealogical form.
With work in progress it was time to make a page 
and the need for inspiration!!


With heartfelt Thanks in what I do "do”… it pulls from my material items but rewards my spirit.  It is a one on one, work in progress that could only be done by family, friends or someone like me. There are so many yet so few that takes the time to do it. I can’t seem to stop doing it. 

I Love it for my love of the art goes right into their books and hearts. It is incredible how they respond to the love that I put into "Their Life" that has been important to them throughout.  I have gotten to know friends and family that I have seen or heard about growing up…and then there they are. We laugh together, cry together and share life together, even if such a short time.

I would not like to leave the memories of life of these few that I have lost.

One day it will be my turn and will hope to have my life in a scrapbook for those that “Knew me” and for those that wondered.


Winning the Top 3 award

 are looking for the use of LACE, I used a paper lace
