My Dad dropped off my Opa's electric typewriter the other day. I had been looking for one for a while, and didn't necessarily realize that my Dad had been "storing" my Opa's for a while under his office desk. This particular typewriter is pretty sentimental to me. Long before I realized my passion for scrapbooking, I would walk to my Opa & Oma's after school (in middle & high school) and type out family history and geneology notes for my Opa. I remember these afternoons and smile. I remember the snacks that my Oma would prepare for us....all cooped up in the basement......working tiredlessly (haha) on preparing a history book. These are such fond memories of my Opa & I, and I will always cherish them.
So.......it's pretty special to me to have THAT same typewriter in my possession. I know my kids think this is weird (the typewriter-thing).....the fact that it's a bit "old school"....but, hey, I'm FROM the old school. I'm in my 30's!!!
So, you may see a bit of the typewriter being used in the next few layouts I create. Rad, eh?!? (haha).
