Throughout my school years, my dad saved all my drawings, report cards, and awards (which was a lot because I’m an overachiever – lol). He also saved the cards that I made him. This past Christmas he put several of those things into a scrapbook for me. Wasn’t that sweet?
Well, sadly, I realized that my childhood drawings are now considered vintage. I guess it’s not totally sad since it does give me something to share with you all for Vintage Thingies Thursdays! Here are just a few of the items my dad saved for me…
My card-making hobby started at an early age. Who knew it would one day bloom to an entire room that overflows with scraps of paper and doilies?
Here’s a phone book I made in 1985. I’m pretty sure that number you can see was my grandparents’.
Here’s some more random colorings …
This one cracks me up. That’s me and my middle sister. I don’t think my youngest sister had been born yet. Neither of my sisters are vintage like me yet.
There was also a report card from Kindergarten which was hilarious (it was partially hand-written and partially done on a typewriter *gasp*):
Mary continues to show much improvement in her academic areas. I feel like she needs to stay [underlined] in her seat more and raise her hand if she needs to show me her work – etc. She also needs to wait to be called on before speaking and voicing her opinion …
Which is odd because I grew up to be very patient, very not attention-getting, and definitely not one to voice my opinion without being asked! I also have a bridge I’ll sell you.
