Back from vacation!

Having a week off is always refreshing -- although I'm a bit tired! A trip to Seattle followed by a few days in Leavenworth. Leavenworth is such a fun little Bavarian town! Lot of fun shops and great German food! I would recommend spending a day there (2 days was too much).

When we returned to home, we spent one night in our own bed
(thank goodness!) and then we headed to Bozeman to see my cousin get married. I haven't seen her since she was a child so it was exciting to see her all grown up. Beautiful outdoor wedding! It was actually a lot like ours -- I was thrilled! It was fun seeing other relatives I haven't seen in years including the parents of the bride.

New Cards (and I'm ready for Fall!)

I've been in my craftroom more and more and I was able to produce a couple of Fall inspired cards. The first one is a collage and although I don't collage much, I really enjoyed making this card.
The second one, "Discover Fall", is simple and just a nice way to send a note to your favorite person. I find it so much more meaningful to receive a handmade card from someone vs. a store-bought version. Also, I would much rather receive snail mail than e-mail. I know it's a lost art but I hope you will do your best to keep it alive -- send a handmade card to a loved one or friend today!
