Calenders and planners for 2009

I have been browsing so many blog spots and sites for inspiration in creating a calender and some sort of household planner ( i added most of the blogspots and websites to my favourites so take a look by visiting the sites linked to my blogspot and search for them).Well here is my idea for 2009 I have modified a sweet little calender template with my own choice of cardstock to mount photo's on from throughout the year.My plan is then to create an album simular to 'A picture is a thousand words' I created a simple one of these for my son way back last February and the link is still on The cardstock blocks are all the same size and co-ordinate in colour (I think)...I would also like to include a samll journalling block to scribe memries from that month that's forward planning.. not one of my strong points but 2009 is to be a turn around on that score as I've decided I'm going to become more organised with my scrapbooking and enter a few more challenges and be adventurous.

Boxes for those little Albums of Christmas joy

My scrap buddy Louise makes beautiful boxes and I have at last discovered a template that fits my 4 x 4's so they will never go in tissue alone again..the beauty being you only need one piece of 12 x 12 ... I can co-ordinate the box with the main paper used in the wee album... so little sticking and cutting is involved in this one..the link is on melzstamps her blogspot link is on my side toolbar...she has so many lovely templates to try and is really talented.

A spirtually uplifting discovery..thankyou

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu...I'm hoping to find a way to download a track to the blogspot so I can share this beautiful music with you.... view him on you tube now
He has been described as a deeply traditional man with the voice of an angel singing of his love of country ( Wiyathul, Galiku), his deep spiritual connection with the land ( Djarimirri, Marrandil), the death of his father ( Bapa), the difficulties of being born blind - which he sings in a mixture of local language and English ( Gurrumul History) - and the importance to his life of continuity and his ancestors.
