This is the tradition origin:
The Isle of Man name for the 1st Foot, or the 1st person to enter a house on New Years Day.
The 1st Foot is very important because he influences the fortune of the home for the coming year. If hes an unlucky or ill-favoured person the family will suffer
the consequences for the next 12 months.
It is wise, therefore, to arrange for the 1st Foot
to be a respectable person. He should bring, as gifts, a coin, a slice of bread, a lump of coal, and a dram of spirits. This will ensure prosperity, food, warmth, and
good cheer during the New Year.”
These two pages are about our “First Foot” this past Jan 1st.
I love Heidi Swapp and specially her Memory Albums.
I’m working on my first one using mostly original old photos of my kids childhood.
I haven’t done the cover yet.
The original album:
It has an overlapped cover that I removed an used as the first page. After finished I just inserted it inside the album, fortunately it doesn’t come out when you pass it form one side to the other.
PAGES 2 AND 3
The back side was plain so I inked it a bit and stamped some flowers on it.
PAGES 4 AND 5
PAGES 6 AND 7
PAGES 8 AND 9
PAGES 10 AND 11
PAGES 12 AND 13
