Photo Storage

When we arrived here in Southern California 20 years ago, we started saving photos in a 2 drawer safe. This safe is stuffed to the gills with all kinds of things: memorabilia, pictures, empty photo albums, letters, cards, etc. Yesterday I began the process of going through everything to get organized.  This sudden urge was a result of us talking about moving.  We definitely need to downsize before moving so I thought this would be a small start.  I got through the top drawer and have gotten rid of some cards and removed the albums that were in there. I did put the things I am keeping back in the drawer for safe keeping until I go through the second drawer and than decide how to organize everything that is left.

Should I make albums for the kids with there school stuff even though they’re in their 30’s? Do I digitize everything and give them a disk?  Do I fill the albums I have and than take pictures of the rest? Do I buy new albums so everything is in some type of order?

Many choices. The cool part is that we have found some pictures we were looking for and some pictures we had forgotten about. This will definitely be a trip down memory lane. Have a great Tuesday!

Wood Shop Signs

Since opening the wood shop I have been making several signs. I’ve gotten pretty good at making them. I find a piece of flat wood, paint it, stencil the letters and paint with a contrasting color. This is our “OPEN” sign that hangs on the wood shop door which can be seen on the road when the shop door is open. You’ll notice I have placed a credit card logo sticker that came with the Square (which is a phone attachment to take credit payments).

Our “ORDER NOW” sign hangs on the gate. As you can see it list the tables at the top and my phone number on the bottom.

 

 

Here is the sign I made to use when I have my furniture and home décor sales.

The only other signs I will need to make are for the different holidays.
