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!

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 to   history.division@usmc.mil   or a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134 .    I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because

Elizabeth Jane Savage Thomas

Elizabeth Jane Savage is my husband's 3rd great grandmother.  She was born in Columbia County, Pennsylvania on 1 May 1821 to Henry and Elizabeth (Frantz) Savage.   Elizabeth married Joseph Thomas (#2 of 52) on 19 June 1854 and they had the following children: Daniel W. Thomas John W. Thomas Joshua Eugene Thomas Parvin Oscar Thomas Ella G. Thomas William James Thomas Anna E. Thomas When Joseph was killed in April of 1865 in the Civil War Elizabeth continued to take care of their children.  She did not remarry.  She remained in Fishing Creek Township, Columbia County, Pennsylvania where I found them in the 1860 Census.  From the List of Pensioners I found that in 1883 Elizabeth was getting $8.00 a month to care for her family.  Elizabeth died in April of 1890 and she is buried in Dodson Cemetery in Huntington Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania with other members of her husbands family. I don't know anything else about Eliza

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post , I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am. I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates  for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me. I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}. !Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week. !TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming lis
