In 2010 I vowed to do more community service. Not the kind of service that one usually thinks of such as building a house, serving meals to the homeless or packing boxes at a food pantry (all of which I have done in the past). I did hold true by giving to organizations my time...my time in serving on a board at www.wbenc.org and conducting site visits for them in the metroploitan area, which I did today. I also give and enourmous amount of time (weekly) www.hisworldwidecommunity.org to help them with tax and administrative matters...lots of hard work, but very satisfying.
In honor of Dr. Martin Kuther King's Birthday today, I spent time uploading important documents that we all use to an on-line respository to make our working relationship much more efficient.
Don't overlook giving to organizations use of your spiritual gifts...it may not be the glamourous newsworthy way, but appreciated all the same.
Here's the other half of the scrapbook page layout.
I love how it's a snap shot of my life and pop culture. My kids freaked out when the saw MJ and MJ songs. The photo of CMU (where I met the actor Blaire Underwood before he was famous)was taken from my dorm window (Tower A? 29th or 30th floor)...not quite sure why my cousins Mike and Therman King are on this page...neither of them went to Pitt with me.
I came across a magnetic album while cleaning last week. I vividly remember scrapbooking about second grade in 1972 and then hardly anything else until college days. This is a page that is still so me that shows that scrapbooking is in my blood.
A few comments about this page...
Name and Address was from an envelope from a highschool friend
I like to fit multiple photos on a page
I'm definitely not afraid of using my own handwriting
I remember buying the PITT Panther stickers specifically for scrapbooking
I drew the helmet freehand
I maintained the integrity of the original photos, but cutting the construction (yes construction) paper into shapes and not the photos
