autumn bursts of color...

Wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone out there. I know I don't post much as far as personal things go, and I want to change that. Tell me, do you prefer to see just scrapbooking work? Or other things as well? I've often wondered. I want to blog more as well...I know the 'ole blog has not been very busy around here. Feels like I haven't gotten to craft just for fun in a long time. Hoping to change that too!


Our fall has been extremely busy! Seems like this time of year goes so fast with school functions, activities after school, homework, my daughter's birthday is coming up (her 14th!), Halloween and Thanksgiving. Before you know it, Christmas will be here! Eeek! We are getting adjusted to life in Colorado and just love it SO MUCH! The people here are wonderful. I'm feeling at home and getting settled. We went home to visit my family over fall break recently, and it was refreshing to get a little dose of my mom again. The girls are meeting friends and having sleepovers. Seemed like it just took some time to feel like we were "home" in our new home and area. Now I'm working on getting my scrap room going and getting organized. THEN I will really feel at home and can start crafting just for fun again. I'm getting there! Promise to start blogging more with projects just because. Most of all, I wanted to say thank you for sticking with me during the past six months of this transition in our life. It was a big one, but we are so happy! xo

I like learning about the person behind the blog and the layouts - although I often wonder how many "life" posts to include on my own blog!

I would love to see anything you want to post! Your cards/projects are just gorgeous...by the way. I'm inspired so much by your work.
I have several relatives that have moved to Colorado, from Illinois, over the years. They just LOVE it!
Looking forward to seeing what you'll be sharing with us on the blog. :)

As much as I love Parker, CO, and like that you are promoting it with lovely pictures - I think I am seeing some South Dakota in there too!!!

I too have just moved and I am not anywhere near unpacked and settled. I really admire you for keeping up with the blog etc along with all of the moving. I have been challenged to keep up with my part time job as well as get moved. It was not the most fun I've had in the last few years.
What you post is lovely. I love the pictures and the little bits of personal info do make it just that, a little more personal. So keep adding bits of your real life and go have fun crafting just for the fun of it.

Love your pictures! Beautiful scenery! Glad you're getting settled in and feeling at home. Yes, we'd love to see personal things, stories, pictures, etc. as well as crafty posts too. So, feel free to blog away and we'll be reading! =o)

Danielle said...

Yes, the middle left photo is actually from our visit to South Dakota in October! :) The rest are all of our home and surrounding area in Parker, CO!
