making

i have been thinking of putting together photo albums for little bb ever since he was born.
but i always find myself busy (actually busy with nothing) and have been pushing off this little project.
i reckon that i really need to get my hands to start working on it because very soon i will return to work and will have lesser time.

in our time where everything is made easy with technology, it seems like there is no longer a need to develop and keep pictures that can be held in our hands (hmmm just like there seems to be no need to write letters anymore.... such a shame).
i like flipping through old photo albums in which pages have turned yellow, notes scribbles here and there, the smell of aged paper....
and most importantly, sitting down with those i care and love, sharing and talking about the good old times....
these are the reasons why i like very much to have photo albums.
**actually there is one other reason.... a very silly one...
perhaps i am a techno-idiot, i always fear that i will ruin or lost all the files saved in my computer.
to be safe, it is always good to have hard copies!**


when little bb grows older, we will look at the albums page by page....
i will tell little bb what he was like when he was a baby, with pictures to show....






















i have already selected and developed the photos i want to put in the photo albums.
all i need to do is to decorate the photo albums.
this afternoon, i finally set down to do so.
i found good use of these stamps....






















.... and the typewriter....
** thank you so much again claudia!!!! **






















.... and these nice little photo corners in white......























which i got from bangkok many years ago which i found "accidentally" while i was going through things underneath my bed.
i bought lots of them for the purposing of making photo albums of our wedding...
but as you can see, i never got the chance / time to do that....
i am glad that i find them and find a perfect reason to use them now!

hi bee ~ yes there are still some at la belle epoque but they are from quite some time ago as i don't have time to make new items lately.... you can also find some of my things at a shop in CWB, magenta.
