Old Home Movies

Several years ago I started on a project to get all of my Dad’s Home movies transferred to DVD. I did some calling around and price checking but I never ended up doing anything with it. Well last fall I was at a nearby Antique mall and found a flyer and business card for a company in the Denver Metro Area that does movie transfers. (He does a lot of other stuff too). I was able to rent from him a viewer so that my dad and I could look at the movies and then decide what order they needed to go on the DVD. Most of them we could attach a year to. The company’s name is Home Video Studio and the website is www.homevideostudio.com. It took about 4 weeks to get my DVD’s back.  I am glad that I am finally got this done.  I was starting to worry about the film and that it might deteriate to a point I couldn’t save it.  I plan to give a DVD to each of my brothers and to my dad. Here is the before (lots of reels of film) and then after (all on a DVD) :

Retirement Book

In August of 2009 my boss retired after spending 24 years with State Government.  I volunteered to be in charge of taking pictures and then gathering pictures to put into a photo album/Scrapbook for her.  I have worked on it sporadically since August and have finally finished it up.   Just in time to give it to her when we all go to lunch with her this week.   I use Creative memories supplies almost exclusively, but do use other papers and stickers once in a while.    (www.creativememories.com).  I think the Creative Memories products are some of the best quality scrapbooking materials you can get. Here is a picture of the first page.
