I am just back from one of my monthly visits to Glan Clwyd this morning. I have been attending a little more than once a month due to different things but gradually as I pass the initial introduction of my stronger medication the visits will settle down to once a month. Which will be nice.
Also this week I attended my check up at the Lymphoedema clinic. My arm has gone down a little since the operation but still more than it should be, so the decision has been made for me to wear a sleeve, for a while, to assist this. That actually arrived in the post today so I now have to make an appointment to visit the clinic at Colwyn Bay to be shown how to apply it.
It's all go.
A short while ago I showed you a photo of items on my desk ready for making a mini album. Well, I have started it. The pages will be envelopes glued together & they will have pockets with either top loading or side loading - much like the mini album we made with Carolyn. Also I have used a file folder for the base - leaving it folded in half for strength.
I have glued the envelopes closed & cut the finger hole in the appropriate place & they will later be attached to the binding system. I had a good look around T'internet to get ideas for different ways to attach the envelopes to the spine & found several ladies making a "stack the deck" system. So for this album I am trying this idea. In fact I put it together yesterday.
I have drawn up a plan as to how I would like each page to look & so now have to gather together the decorative papers, envelopes to make pockets, other styles of pockets, fastenings etc. It is all well in hand. I already know what I am doing for the front cover. This is going to be a mini album for a special reason & therefore I won't be able to show you any photos for a while. Sorry!
Knowing how much nicer the blog looks with photos - so here is a lovely one of our grandson when he was out helping Mummy do the shopping. In fact I decided to show you all 3.
He is just so gorgeous - but then of course I am biased.
Tomorrow I have a member showcase for you.
Take care everyone
'Bye for now.,
