Aloha, all! Now that the excitement (at least in Robin's Craft Room) about the Stampin' Up! "Last Chance" lists having been published, it's time to get back to an old project and let you know what I did with it. Back in April, I told you about having found my mother's Memory Book from her High School graduation in 1940. Since then, I've been working on and off on it, … [Read more...] about A 1940 Memory Book – Part II
Aloha, all! Last month when my cousin, Sherry, was here visiting us in Hawaii, we started rummaging through a box full of old photographs. Now I know that the readers of the Robin's Craft Room blog are far too sophisticated about such items as photographs to have them stashed in boxes in closets. You all have them neatly arranged in wonderful scrapbooks, don't you? … [Read more...] about A 1940 Memory Book – Part I
Aloha, all! My cat, Cholla (pronounced Choy-a--she was originally a New Mexico cat), knows something's up when I receive not one but TWO Stampin' Up! boxes in the mail on one day. Successive days she's used to. But late last week I sent one workshop order in and, within 3 hours, two of my friends/customers were visiting my Craft Room and ordered up enough for a SECOND workshop … [Read more...] about Feline Help With My Orders
Aloha, all! Harry and I are finally back from a well-needed vacation to one of our sister islands, Moloka'i. We had been there for a short trip about 15 years ago. This time we spent more time and still didn't see all that we wanted, despite the size of the island (small). With a Stampin' Up! workshop on my schedule for this evening, and with the hostess having requested that the … [Read more...] about Taking a Trip and Mapping a Scrap!
Aloha, all! I think that the 2008 Christmas Season is finally over for Hale Messenheimer! I finished the last of the 4 pages of the scrapbook in which we'll keep memories of the ornaments made over the years by our dear friend, Janet. I can't believe that I didn't capture ALL of the ornaments that she has made us. Perhaps next year I may find the I have to make another 2-page … [Read more...] about Ornaments Scrapbook–the Last Page
Aloha, all! I changed the color scheme a bit, but these are still ornaments made by our dear friend, Janet, over the last 20 years. The tree is the second of two trees we have each year in our Hawaii home. There are two lovely picture windows on either side of our front door, and we have four Norfolk Island Pines growing in our garden. So, each year, we cut the tops from two of … [Read more...] about Ornaments Scrapbook Page 3
Aloha, all! What better way to start a Holiday Wish List than to start with--YOU!! OK, I know that you and I were both brought up to think of everyone else first. But how are we going to get all those cards made for everyone in 2009? How are we going to get all those scrapbooks of important events made in 2009? How are we going to get all those wonderful gift bags and … [Read more...] about Starting Your Christmas Wish List!
Our Stamp Club meeting last week was so much fun! The club is supposed to meet from 3:30 - 5:00 pm. But two of my stampin' friends didn't end up leaving until after 6:30! The good news was that Barbara (this month's hostess) brought some delectable crustless mini quiches, so my wonderful husband, Harry, didn't starve waiting for his dinner :) Of course, the rest of us … [Read more...] about Another Thanksgiving Card
