Our Tiny House Then and Now Project Life Scrapbook - #1

You asked for it, and here it is.  I finally took pictures of the pages of my Project Life scrapbook of our cabin (aka Tiny House).  We owned this cabin way, way back and sold it in 1992 when we moved away.  We re-purchased it in 2013 when the owners decided to sell it.  
It was like walking back in time.  There had been virtually no work done to it since we left in 1992.  The walls, floors and ceilings were the same paint job we did in 1990.  Guess that was good paint we used.  I opened the cupboards (which were the same) and looked at the dishes, pots, pans, cutlery, etc.  It was all the stuff we left there.  I had been missing a casserole that was a little special to me as my Mother-In-Law and I had gone to a pottery shop where she lives and purchased it.  She is still alive (just celebrated her 96th birthday) but the pottery shop is gone.  Well, there it was in the cabin cupboard!
The sleeping mats our boys had when they were in Cub Scouts were there with their names still on them.  It was truly an amazing experience.  On top of that, it was every bit as tranquil and relaxing as we remembered it being.
I still have some pictures from "then" to put in it, and some "now" from the end of last season as well.  But here are the 2013 pages and one page of "then" first  .....

This is the "then" page with pictures from 1992.  That was our son who is now ahem "older"  LOL

Some flashback pictures of the unchanged inside

More flashback pictures

And the renovations begin.  First, a new ceiling .....

Always time for sunshine and swimming.  Lots of heat on the front deck as well.

Then we started on the wall refinishing.  Also pictures of our dinner spot.

Our son, Phil, came up to help with new anchoring lines and new flotation underneath.  Yes this is the same son who is in the "then" picture with our puppy Popi on his lap.

The sunsets are spectacular.

Project Life by Stampin' Up! is an amazing scrapbooking system.  It comes complete with inserts, embellishments, and overlays to pop into the sectioned pages.  All you do is slip your photos in the pockets, then fill the remaining pockets with inserts, journalling pages, and embellishments.  Voila!  There you go.  No electricity required - we have no electricity, internet, or cell service at our Tiny House.  I print the pictures at home and do the filling and journalling there.

Well, that's it for today.  I will be back again on Friday with pictures from 2014.
Have a crafty day!  Glenda Mollet
