"In the midst of winter, blue skies and foliage are hard to find. So we look for things with color. Here we are visiting a small Ohio city, smiling through cutouts of a forgotten Christmas village."

I purchased the fiber for this layout on our drive home in another small Ohio town called Beverly. When I called ahead to check on the hours of the store (Scraps of Time), the owner told me she'd be at the nursing home until 11 and would open the store shortly after. When I met Donna Coleman that morning as she toted her box of supplies into the store, I asked her what she did at the nursing home. She said that on the last Monday of every month she went to the home to scrap with the residents. Donna has a group of 5 regular attendees who bring their own pictures and scrap their memories. Isn't that a wonderful thing to do? Proof again that most people who scrap are caring human beings!
