re-cycling old albums . . .

I love re-cycling old items and so fell in love with this idea
A step by srep how to turn an antique photo album 
into an expanding file for letters, receipts, and other important documents.

PS: Im really back this time folksies, i got waylaid getting all teary
at my newly emptied nest, after 30yrs of having children at home
its taken me by suprise!  Keeping busy seems to be a great distraction x

Somehow never thought of you as old enough for grown up children!

Ohh, I know it is soo hard when they go! Creativity is what saved me, making things has been such a gift.

It's a difficult and emotional transition when they leave and I just have the one left (5 gone) so I know how awful the gap feels. As you might know already, they often come back just when you're getting used to the peace. ;)
Making new plans and having goals is the best way to ease the change I think. Wishing you exciting times ahead Ruthie. :)
