This year was my "Golden Birthday," a new concept to me that a friend told me about, just in time for mine!
(Basically, it's when you turn the same age as the number of the date of your b'day- that sounds confusing- but my b'day is on the 29th, and I turned 29. I've heard that some families do really big stuff for the golden birthdays in their family. Pretty cool.)
I loved all the golden yellow accents in the Homeroom Kit, so I knew I had to make a little mini album about my golden birthday using this kit.
To make the album, I cut pieces of the Hambly overlay in the kit into 4x6 sheets, and then folded 2" x 6" strips of the newsprint October Afternoon paper on one edge. Then I sewed all the newsprint edges together to bind it.
I did some reflective journaling in here, along with some snippets of my life "right now," including prices compared from the year I was born to now, who my friends are, and what music & tv shows I like. I think it'll be fun to look back on!
