A Designer's Life: Ang Campbell - Want - Need - Surprise - Read

One Christmas morning quite a few years and several kids ago, we found ourselves discouraged and overwhelmed. After the presents had all been opened and the copious amount of wrapping paper had been crumpled up and stuffed into a bulging garbage bag, we looked around at the excessive number of gifts that had just been dumped in our kids' laps and realized how far we had wandered from what we wanted Christmas to be about in our home. It was time for a change.

Using the Flip-Pal Scanner with Fragile Old Photo Albums

When my mother passed away, I inherited several boxes of old photo albums, scrapbooks, and diaries ranging from 50 to 150 years old. I tried scanning a few albums pages with a flat-bed scanner, but the albums are fragile, and I was concerned about damaging them. I also found I needed to clean the scanner glass after each scan because the aging black pages left small flakes on the scanner glass and a black residue on my hands. I put the albums back in their box and moved on to other things.

Story Winner #1: Christmas Morning Surprise

Things were looking pretty bleak for Santa's visit to the Gray house in 1956. Mom and Dad had recently moved back to the sand hills of Nebraska to raise us in the Midwest. Short on money during those lean years, they rented an old farm house and bought a couple of milk cows with a dream to expand in a few years.

Story Winner #2: Nanna's Christmas Bread

When I was little, my favorite part of Christmas was waiting for the big box from Nanna. It wasn't presents I wanted, but the rich, aromatic breads she sent all the way from "Up North." My favorite place to visit each summer was where my father's mother lived. In 1888, she came from Vasa, Finland, to Michigan's Copper Country (the northernmost place in Michigan, way up in Lake Superior) when she was seven years old.

Story Winner #3: Secrets in the Closet

My parents had secrets.

Story Winner #4: A Heart for the Holidays

I will never forget the 1988 holiday season.
