HOF Entry Coming along

I still haven't nailed down all of the layouts that I am including but...I'm getting closer. I know...I need to get a move on since it is due really soon and I am planning on mailing my entry. A little bit of pressure can't hurt. I also wanted to add that I love CKMB. Everyone there is really supportive and knowledgeable. Thanks for all of the comments both on the blog and the message boards. This is such a wonderful lifestyle, for so many reasons. In addition to all of the huge obvious benefits, it is so great to talk with others who believe as strongly as I do about preserving my families memeories and get excited over paper. Pretty cool.

So I finally did it.....

Well here we first blog. It was a lot easier than I imagined. Hopefully as I continue to learn the ropes there will be new and exciting things to see. I'm currently working on my HOF entry for Creating Keepsakes. My goal for 2008 is to get published. I have been working very hard to get caught up with all of my photos. I'm up to May 2007. I've only taken maybe 5 or 6 hundred photos since then. No biggy. In some ways I'm glad that I have tons of great photos to scrap, at least I know that I will never loose my retreat away from it all. Thank God for my new scrapbook space. It's still a work in progress but it is getting there. Even's fabulous!

On the allergy front, I have a meeting with our State Representative on Feb. 8th to discuss medically necessary elemental formula coverage. We were very fortunate that we were able to avoid this step but a lot of our EOS kiddos can't and cannot live or eat without it. Their families also cannot afford to pay for it. As of right now it is not a covered benefit for most insurance companies. Wish me luck in getting the word out. There are a lot of kiddos that need all the help that they can get right now.
