Farmer's Market

I waited until I had a coupon to get an adorable kit called "Eat Your Veggies" to make a farmer's market page. I love going to the farmer's market! We have lived here for 9 years and have never gone, even though it is only 10 minutes away. What dorks! I listed all our favorite things to get on the page, but we have only ever gone in the late summer and fall. I can't wait to go next Spring when it opens up again to see what they will have!

Aaron's Baby Book

I have s...l...o...w...l...y... begun working on Aaron's baby book (now that he's 2 1/2), which I started in paper scrapping form and plan to take up to his first birthday. Since I was also working finishing summer scraps and am now working on Christina and Nathan's wedding album, Aaron's book has stalled. I also got a great idea for a couple of Christmas gifts, and have to fit those in sometime, in addition to scanning Courts' baby pictures so I can work on that book, and, and, and....
Aaron's book so far...(I already had a spread about my pregnancy and one about making his room done paper-style). These were all pages I did for challenges at ScrapMatters, too. These have been difficult because it is hard for me to narrow down pictures...I love them all! At the same time I don't like cluttered looking pages, so I have been trying to find good templates and inspiration from scrapping sites for pages that include a lot of photos without looking cluttered.

A blog makeover...

I am back on the blog! Once August hit...well...we spent a lot of time out of the house and them it was time for school to start! And like most other things around the house, the blog just took a REALLY far back seat. But now, since I am procrastinating starting both my grading and my own grad school work, I made some new autum blogwear and I am going to be adding some posts. Fall is my favorite time of year, and this is a beautiful place to watch it happen. To me, the colors, the excitement of going back to school, and the start of the holiday season all make fall so inspirational. I also love a crisp cool day!
