This week our readers look at homes and lifestyles and how they may have changed over the years.
Heidi Barclay created this stunning layout above. Her journalling reads: This is where we settled when we first arrived in NZ, Feb 2000. We stayed at 3/10 Ridge Road Howick Auckland.
Christine Rumley has included lots of journalling detail in her layout. She writes: This week I used the Jenni Bowlin "Haven" paper collection to record some of my memories from my childhood home and the home we live in now. The photo on the left is my mum and 3 older sisters holding a baby me on the front lawn of my parents house, and the photo on the right is of my husband and kids on the driveway of our current home. I recorded some of the little quirks I remember from each of these homes in point form and put them onto the tags in the pockets. Some were happy memories like watching my kids playing in the sprinklers, and some were memories of weird decor choices, like the pink bath tub that my sisters chose when mum and dad built their house before I was born (thankfully they have replaced it now!) or the fact that my parents didn't have an oven in their kitchen until they renovated in 2004!
Agnus Kasprzak shares: I was recently looking through some of my mum's old photo albums and loved seeing how much things had changed inside our family home since we were growing up there. My mums house has really made a transformation and it's funny to look at all the daggy furniture and decor that use to fill it and I wanted to be able to share a lot of these old photos on one page so I created a pocket to hold them.
