It has been one of these days…


Sketch – Shimelle. Digi paper and elements – Karla Dudley.

I woke up at 6 am and enjoyed my morning. I always work the evening shift Fridays – but at 8.05 am I realized that something wasn`t right. Why would I ask Johanne to work from 8 am to 4 pm on her day off, while I worked from 10 am to 3 pm?  Ups…I was in my uniform and at work before 8.10. So – the first customer had to go next door. We all survived but the rest of the day was a bit off:)

I hope all you scrapbookers red Stacy Julian`s blog post yesterday? Having too many photos is a problem for most people and for scrapbookers especially.   I do my best to pair a story with the photo, but sometimes that is hard for me since a lot of my pages is based on what I am told. The bottom line is that we have too many photos and not enough stories.

Was our ancestors good with the stories? Not mine. Stacy is right about one thing though – I do love the few photos I have. Like this one…

After two weeks of digging – all I know is that the women to the left is my grandmother Elen and the girl in front of her is her sister Justine. I don`t know when the photo is taken but I guess it is late 1920. Justine died in a car accident in August 1933 just before she was getting married. I know it was a tragedy for my grandmother and her family. I remember my mother telling this story. My mother was only one year when Justine died. That is all I know – and I am not happy with that. I need a story to back up this photo. A story to describe Justine as a person, daughter, sister and aunt.

    I’m so sorry you had a day!
    Your page is so lovely — and thank YOU for linking back to my blog post. You photo and the lack of a proper story speaks volumes more than my rambling paragraphs — it’s so true!
