and then there is my night job.

this is the scanning project i'll be tackling tonight.

we're at it again. my dad has written another book and i am currently working on the design for it. the book is about a man who married his high school sweetheart and then made all his dreams happen (with hard work and a lot of teamwork). it's a history of an entrepreneur who made it big, thus there are plenty of images to fit it with his inspiring story.

among other things, i have their high school yearbooks (gotta love the seventies) and the album of his life (pictured). it is bigger than my scanner! (i removed the top of my scanner for easy access. the maneuvering of these precious memories is a bit of an adventure.) however i'm in love with this giant scrapbook. it is full of fifty years of life and memories. (the mrs. made it for the mr.'s fiftieth birthday!) i can't wait to get this book layout done and give you a glimpse. after flipping through this mammoth masterpiece, i am motivated to start a cut and paste sketch book again. i have a windstorm of new ideas brewing in my head at the moment, i can barely keep them all straight. lists are flying.

at the moment i'm concentrating on the deadline ahead.

tuna melts tonight.
a bear snoozing.
a man reading.
me at my desk.
