My mom gave me a whole bunch of photos from my life in digital form, I had them printed and am making mostly 8 1/2 x 11 pages with stories from my life. I've always wanted to write an autobiography, and someday perhaps I will, but the scrapbooking way of doing it is immediate gratification of that need now and there are pictures! My kids are 6 and 8 so some of the books we now read don't have a lot of pictures - and they love the pictures - even the black and white ones in books like Mrs. Piggle Wiggle etc. So this is my life story in pictures. Someday, I'll write some longer stuff, or perhaps I'll do it in bits and just put the pages in page protectors and have it be part of the album. Who knows. But for now, scrapbooking is quick and easy and helps me to tell my story after the kids go to bed, or today, before they got up - I was wide awake at 4 am (actually 3 am but figured I needed more sleep so slept a bit more) so I'm using my me time to play in my scrapbooking room. Ok, so here is Calais, Maine as seen from the window of F.H. Fenderson Customs & Frieght Forwarders Brokerage, the view is of the Canadian Border. I used to take ice skating lessons over in Canada when I was a girl. And one of my scrapbooking friends is from the part of Canada you see here. The river is the St. Croix River and my grandparents home was on a much wide section of this river - and they even had very dark colored long and lean dolphins (not the light colored bottle nosed shorter and thickers ones we see down here). Ok, Calais, Maine:
