While Living in the Past

I wanted to share a little of what has taken over my life. I have really just started but already it has been many hours researching and making sure that you have all the right family in the right place. I must say that it is very interesting, and fun. You start to think of each person in a very different way.. Things like.. where did I find Sarah, and is her husband Joesph or was it William?? These are beautiful people in a time that meant everything to them. That I can take a peek into their life opens the mind to what life might have been. I may not do much else for awhile, so you may get tired of my rambling about this, but I have planned to put together a album for our family...I think this is more valuable than anything I could craft. Leaves of Life! And it is good for me to be busy with this, it takes my mind off of food for long periods of time.

I love having time suspended while working on my art. If my DH weren't here, I could forget all about the kitchen! Have fun with your "cut and paste"! I do!

What a great picture of you at the bottom of the page! You're really doing something special for your family and future generations. Sending love and hugs to Mattie Ann and hoping for only good days ahead. ♥

This is a wonderful project. I've been thinking about doing something similar for my son. I've noticed a lot of folks are starting to think about their family roots more. I've only seen that new show that's on once, but I enjoyed it. The one where celebrities research their roots. It's very interesting to see where it leads.
