This is where I store the "extra" stuff in my head.

Several years ago, my mother gave me a lovely brown table with a small, side drawer. The drawer was packed with pictures of her and her parents from when she was a little girl. I'm a scrapbooker and the pictures hiding in the drawer were eating away at me! So I decided to do a little something different with them, instead of sticking them in a scrapbook. I took them out of the drawer, trimmed some of them, and modge-podged them to that table top. There are 3 layers of the modge podge on right now, and when it's good and dry, I will seal it with a clear coat of some kind. It turned out better than I had expected and now I'm left with a gorgeous, personalized table that is still functional. I wasn't worried about tagging the pictures because I stuck with pictures of my mother and grandparents. There are a couple of very old pictures included, but I don't know who those people are. You could scan the pictures before you apply them to the table, but that's not the way I decided to go. I did leave some of the borders on the pictures where my grandmother had written the date they were taken. I love that I have that personal touch of hers!
I am a working mother of two teens, spoiled dachshund and an effervescent Golden Retriever. AND I have a husband who is addicted to fishing. I love to cook, scrapbook, read, watch movies and hang out with my family and my friends. This blog is a place for me to store the extra stuff in my head!
