A few weeks ago, I was at a local scrapbook store and I had a chance meeting with two of my scrapbooking idols whose work I've admired since the days of Simple Scrapbooks Magazine. I so miss that magazine *sniff*. One was Wendy Smedley, the other was Angie Lucas. And can I tell you they are just as sweet in person as I imagined them to be. Very genuine and real. I've been able to chat with Wendy a few times about some of the life experiences we have in common right now so it was awesome to meet her in person.
Well, Angie and her husband were able to adopt a beautiful baby girl and she was thrown an online baby shower. When I got the e-mail, I knew that I wanted to share more than advice and links to great products. I wanted to send her a piece of my kids' babyhood.
When my first baby was born, twenty years ago, to be exact, I was given a cassette called "A Child's Gift of Lullabies". Each of my babies, in turn, were settled to sleep on many occasions by these songs. In fact, my 14 and 11 year-old sons listened to them until they were both 8 or 9, they loved them so much. Shhh. Don't tell them I told you ;).
And of course, I had to scrapify the cover and include a handmade card to go with. :)
So now I'm passing these sweet lullabies on to baby Keira to enjoy. I'm always so happy when someone adds a new addition to their family and I wish them the very best!
