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!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
