My Scrap Room




This is the "new" arrangement of my scrap room. I moved my working table from in front of the two windows (where the comfy chair is now) to the side. This will allow for me plus one to scrapbook ( I will just move the stuff on my table off to the side.) I was also able to move another table in the room since I moved the desk to the closet...the second table works great for my sewing machine...especially since I am getting in to quilting more. It works much better this way...the closet, small drawer thingies(store embelishements and the ones in the closet hold alphabet stamps and other smaller stamps) and the cabinet( paper, photo, and other misc. storage) are my scrapping storage while the shelves and drawers by the swing machine are for fabric and quilting supplies. My ribbon storage (is on the back of the door...no way to move this closer to my working area) it is a shoe organizer from walmart...I store spools in the pockets and my cut ribbon is on rings hanging on the hooks that hold the organizer...I love it because I can really see what I have. My room is lacking paint and some curtains and a few other decorative items. I LOVE eeyore and they are all proudly displayed throughout my room! I do want to paint but I am holding off...we are thinking about having another baby and if we do that than I am going to loose my scrapping space so I don't want to paint and then have to repaint! Who knows where I will scrap then...I am thinking that I will end up in the bedroom again--I have two closets in there so I will just purge some clothing and move my scrapping room to a scrapping closet...should be fun. (notice I said purge clothes and not scrapping supplies...lol)

Happy MOnday everyone!

The Great Genealogy Shape Up of 2018!

For most of 2017, I spent my genealogy time cleaning up my database in Legacy Family Tree.  I'm still working on cleaning up messes from when I first started my family tree.  For 2018, I plan to continue cleaning up my database.  I would also like to finish adding all Find A Grave information to my database as well.  
Find A Grave is a great place to find leads to research.  Legacy makes it very easy to find everyone in your database who do not have Find A Grave memorials.  

Click the drop-down arrow on the Find A Grave icon and it gives you the following options:



I selected create a list of people without a Find A Grave Memorial and I got a nice LONG list of people.  From this list, I have been able to find more ancestors to research and add to my database.
My other goal for 2018 is to find the people in my database who do not have a source {yes, I said without a source.  Gasp!} Legacy also makes it very easy to find these people.  You want to click on Search {in the image of the…

Goodbye Evernote, Hello OneNote

What?  I'm leaving Evernote behind!
As most of you know I have been a huge Evernote supporter from the beginning and I have had a paid membership from the beginning {until October 1st}.There has been a lot of talk about Evernote not lasting much longer because they have been making a lot of changes and letting people go.That got me thinking about what I would do if they did cease to exist.I started looking at all of my options and the best option, for me, is OneNote.I already have it on my computer and it is free.I can use OneNote on my desktop, laptop, phone, and table all for free.I can still use tags {a bit different than what I am use to but it works and I am finding that I really don't need that many tags}.I can still search for things and actually find what I am looking for.I can still clip stuff from the web using the OneNote clipper.I'm currently working on moving notes from Evernote to OneNote.It can be a bit tedious but the process has forced me to look at my note…
