Future projects

 Oh dear,
Its been awhile. *sigh* Lately I haven't been able to actually do much research lately. I am still Indexing with Family Search, we had a reenactment at Friendship, Indiana {it was a blast, hot very hot, but a great time}, we have been looking for a house {one of the worlds most stressful thing}, and various stresses of everyday life.

I have 2 more family trees to create, another for my grandmother of my step-grandfather's side with a matching wedding "tile" {Thats what I am calling it, basically it will be a small rectangle with his and her names with the wedding date}, and one for my future mother-in-law. I also want to do a scrap book like thing. I don't scrap book it doesn't interest me. But I do want to take a book on the First page my brother and I, the second page would be of my mother, the facing page my father and so on. I want it in something I can add pages to that way when I have kids or I find another relative I can add them to the book. I feel like it would be a good visual representation that you can sit down and flip through. Maybe with pockets for copies of census or military records I'm not sure.

My crafts will just have to wait, coming up with a down payment while paying rent, and bills will break even the hardest saver into broke submission.

Maybe some of you would like a hand painted family tree on canvas? hint hint!!!!

We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies. ~Shirley Abbott
