alex's life book

  • In early 2006, I began creating a life book for my daughter, Alex. Click here for links to articles describing my experience.
  • And for those of you who are more digitally inclined, in late 2006, I recreated key pages of Alex's lifebook for an article I wrote for AlphaMom, using Scrapblog.

    You can see the final digital result (and leave comments, if you'd like!) here.

I WANT that sweater!!


Lala --

Get this:

I MADE that sweater!

I knit now! How insane is that?!?!



Okay, you already have a husband, so I think I should get to have Matthew. Except I think I wet myself reading that post, so I may need to change my pants first.

Also, you KNIT? Gorgeous, smart, accomplished, and a KNITTER?? It's a good thing you're funny, or I'd have to hate you a little.


(reaching toward screen, shaking progresses, teeth begin to chatter...) MUST. HAVE. SWEATER....

beautiful, honey!

on a seperate note, A looks like she is reaping the benefits of a "childhood gone right." your pictures are so refreshing!

also, the bush post? million thanks for the link! whoo hoo! good stuff!


And Matthew's writings about his son are as good or better than his political writing. For example, this whole entry, but especially the story at the end: http://www.defectiveyeti.com/archives/001457.html
Cool guy.


Karen the sweater is beautiful! I was going to ask where you got it too! Way to go. :)

And Matthew's post is right on! He's very talented!


Thanks for putting the Mac directions for downloading the Indigo Leaf Magazine first. :)


I love how each expression on Alex's little face just blossoms with delight. And her sweater is lovely lovely!


Karen, I love the photos of Alex, as usual. I was about to ask about her sweater when I saw others beat me to it. It is gorgeous! Some of my favorite things my children have are those crocheted by my mother. My daughter even has a sweater that was mine when I was a child. My grandmother knitted it. Take care of that sweater so Alex can share it with her children one day. It will make her so proud.

Love Indigo Leaf as well! I've passed the info along to my sister who fits your writer description perfectly. Maybe she'll be on there some day!


I was going to say the same darn thing.


MamaChristy/Brat --

I put the Mac instruction first because, in my humble opinion (and based on considerable personal experience) Mac ROCKS. :o)



Oh what a briljant idea I wish my writing was in English...

And love the sweater..


What a beautiful little girl! That sweater reminds me of one my mother made me when I was little. Maybe I'll ask her to make one for my little girl. :)


K!!! I am getting so many wonderful messages from people about the magazine and I can not thank you enough for the wonderful opportunity. Don't think this is the last time I will submitting work to you. I need to get on my writing, too. Well done!!


Great link to Defective Yeti! Also, I am going to put up your link on my blog (even though no one really reads it except my mom...but maybe she'll have something that she wants to submit for publication! :) You never know...


Very happy and pretty girl in this bright red sweater. The little girl is so lovely. The picture is vivid.
