Progress on The Project book

Well, I've been having a busy few days again.  It's great having J. home for the school holiday.  We took his Grandma to the dentist on Friday morning, then had our elevenses in a lovely cafe in town.  In the afternoon we relaxed at home (and J. worked on his Geography project).

Yesterday was a good day. D's mum came over for the day.  We haven't seen her for a while, because I haven't been able to manage the drive to Wiltshire & back in one day and she can't drive, so depends on friends for lifts etc.  Also, her husband and Dave's Nanna were both ill and she was very busy with their needs. However, Nanna died about 3 weeks ago and the funeral was just before Easter.  Her husband is in a care home, so she doesn't have to care for him full time now.  She was offered a lift here and back from a friend, so decided to come and visit us.  We had lunch in the garden and a walk to the local park, all in lovely sunshine. It was a really lovely day. No photos available yet - they are still on D's mobile phone...

Today has been a relaxed day too.  I got my jobs out of the way this morning and managed some scrapping this afternoon.  I have been working on the commission Photo Album, but took a break from it, to work on my "Project 2009" mini-album.  I already posted the first two pairs of pages, but it was in January, so here are all the pages so far, including the 4 I have just finished. I'm up to Day 10 now... Still quite a way to go!

A double-layout for Day One
Days 2 and 4...
Day 5 - the silver writing on the left says "Rain, rain go away; come again another day!"
Day 6 - the writing reads "tho' the rain it raineth every day"
The left hand page is for both Day 8 and Day 9, but Day 10 has its own page - Jeff installed the big steel joist by himself, as the brickies were not working that day.  He used a pulley and managed to lift it and fix it in place. I kept out of the way... I was afraid of distracting him at a crucial moment and making him drop it!

I aim to keep going on this now.  There's a fair way to go and I need to get on with it, if it's ever going to be finished!


  1. It's looking good, Lizzie :-) Keep going, it'll be worth it! x

  2. Great project Lizzie and you are giving me quite a few ideas of what I might do myself when our 'project' starts.

  3. Nice job Lizzie! Stay with it.

  4. I'm very impressed with the beam installing! It's looking great Lizzie :) And thanks for commenting yesterday!

  5. I love the look of your Project 2009, Lizzie. You know I'm a fan of kraft paper, and I really like the coral color paired with it. Have a great week! :o)

  6. Love your project Lizzie, and yes you must keep going, it will be so cool when its finished (says she who never finishes anything!). Thanks for the brill ideas re journalling. I fancy making flaps for hidden journalling (don't like my handwriting mucking up my pages!); reckon this would really work, yay!

  7. The project is coming along great! I always wish I could manage to scrap all my 365 photos but I get overwhelmed by it to easily & stick with photo books.


I love to read your comments!
