Friday's Hunt #9...

Friday's Hunt feels different this week...

I had in the last couple of months just begun connecting via Blogland with East Gwillimbury Camera Girl. She was a wonderful photographer, and  it was always fun to anticipate what her "starts with" pictures would be! She also left very kind comments on my blog.  She and her husband were tragically killed in a car accident in Ontario earlier this week. Although we never met, she will be missed!  Many thoughts and prayers are being lifted for their families and friends.

My photos aren't nearly as interesting as hers, but here is my interpretation of this week's prompts...

"Something blue" and "week's favorite" are the same this week...

I've been scrapbooking ever since Eric was a baby...and that's almost 20 years ago! In this digital age, I still like the process of putting photos in a book, and labeling them in my own handwriting. I've heard it referred to as modern day quilting.

Anyway, this is Eric's school album, which is almost finished! It's fun to look back at the first day of school...

...and it's interesting to see how scrapbooking styles have changed over the years too...

I spent most of today scrapbooking with a friend, and I'm happy to say that I hope to have his book finished this week!  Then it's time to get Jenna's book up to date.

"Starts with I"...

I don't often find eggs inside the nesting boxes! For some reason, my current chickens like to lay their eggs in the corner of the shed, in the straw. Oh well...

I hope you have a good weekend!


  1. I didn't read her blog but have read about her death on a few blogs. So sad.

    That brown egg looks perfect!!

  2. Your scrapbook is a good idea. And that lonely egg is funny.

  3. I'm so sorry about your blogger friend dyeing so tragically. I did checked her blog and her photography was beautiful.
    Scrapbooking is something is something I tried but didn't stay with.

    The chicken must like the meeting corner better. At least they lay eggs.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. The sad about Tina is sad, indeed. She was a gifted photographer - I always smiled when I saw one of her barn photos. Good work on the scrap booking, my photo albums are a disgrace.

  5. All though we never met Tina lived just a few hours from me and We had exchanged comments on blogs and FB . I will miss her and her beautiful photos !
    Hens are funny they have such quirky ways about them don't they ? Your scrap book looks great , something your son will appreciate as he gets older to look back on . I use scrapbooks to display my photos to there is so much one can do with scrap booking . Thanks for sharing , Have a good weekend !

  6. I started a scrapbook when our grandson was born but it kind of petered out and I switched to making my own cards.
    I guess the hunt for you is always to find where the eggs are laid.

  7. What a great way to preserve those memories! I have never been a scrapbooker, but I do love real print photos. It's just not the same when it's digital. Lucky you are getting eggs! My girls are finally starting to lay a few again. Thanks for joining me in Friday's Hunt.

  8. I'm sorry to hear about your blogging friend. That is tragic.
    Your scrapbooking likely helped lead you to blogging. Isn't a blog kind of like a scrap book as well, especially if you blog about daily life and include family and friends? I like that you still keep up with your scrapbooking. -Jenn


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
