New Arrivals…


I can’t believe Christmas is LESS than 2 months away!  Tomorrow is Halloween and then in a blink of an eye it will be Christmas.  Why does the time go so much faster when you’re an adult than when you’re a child? 

As I sit in my studio I am loving the beautiful red, orange and yellow leaves still lingering on the trees, but there won’t be too many more days left to enjoy the colors.  The leaves are dropping so fast.  And, I keep hearing that dreaded word….SNOW…popping up.  Fortunately, so far it’s been no where near us but I know it’s coming…eventually.  I would seriously give anything to avoid snow this winter.  Driving on snow and ice covered roads for 2+ hours every day gets really old….really fast.   Maybe we’ll get lucky and not get ANY snow this year!  Ha!  Yeah…I’m dreaming! 

I know I should be working on Christmas items for my shop but I keep getting sidetracked!  Of  course, ANY scrapbook would make a great  Christmas gift…it doesn’t have to be a Christmas scrapbook, right?  :)

So anyway, here’s what’s new in my Etsy shop this week….

So Inspired


Tree of Life Print Black BirdsTwilight Blue 8X10 Picture Circles Wall Decor


We attain freedom
as we let go
of whatever does not reflect
our magnificence.
A bird cannot fly high
or far
with a stone tied to its back.
But release the impediment, and we are free
to soar
to unprecedented heights.

- Alan Cohen

So Inspired

Seek out
that particular
mental attribute
which makes you
feel most deeply
and vitally alive,
along with which comes
the inner voice which says,
This is the real me,”
and when you have found
that attitude,
follow it.
--William James

Summer Extended


sun thru tree

Not sure what’s going on, but we’ve had some amazing weather the past week.   Temps in the 80’s and lots and lots of sunshine.  The leaves are turning so there are beautiful trees everywhere!  Even my drive along 88…which is usually boring and ugly…is spectacular!  I must admit…as much as I LOVE summer, this is a great time of year.  I just wish WINTER didn’t follow it.  I’d like to skip straight from autumn to spring!

This morning I went out to lay on the deck in the sunshine for awhile.  Spent a couple hours outside enjoying my peaceful backyard while I studied for a test. 

I would have loved to spend more time scrapbooking this weekend but it just didn’t happen.  Amazingly enough I even went into a scrapbooking store on Saturday and didn’t buy anything.  Nothing!  Nada!  Guess that means I have too much stuff at home already to work on.

A couple new things ended up in my Etsy shop yesterday….

One for girls, one for guys!  Hadn’t really planned it that way but it looks like that’s how it turned out!
