Hanukkah Nights Scrapbooking

Potato latkes, jelly doughnuts, dreidle games, candles, eight nights of celebrating with great food and good friends - just my thing!

For the well prepared scrapbookers, and the ones who'd like to buy a premade Hanukkah scrapbook album, here are some ideas to pre-prepare for the holiday. I'll have some after-Hanukkah scrapbook layouts for you too, with new, fresh photos from Hanukkah 2009!

Visit my blog again next week for some 6x6" premade Hanukkah scrapbook album pages and layouts. In the meantime, happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Family Premade Scrapbooks

It's been roughly 4 months since we moved from sunny California to north New Jersey. We made lots of friends and adopted some family members over in California, some Ron members for life, I know I will forever stay in touch with them. And while I'm honing on the fact that the world globalized a lot since I came into it, I'm sad we're not at that stage where you can just yearn for someone and he or she will show up, like a living hologram. Instead we have a leaving scrapbook album, lots of photos, emails, phone calls and visitors. They pass across the love, but it's not the same as sharing dinner or experiencing them in person.
I'm currently working on this expended family scrapbook album and hope to put in it memories from the past as well as future visits:)
