Crazy Jam Lady

You've heard of crazy cat ladies? Well, I'm the crazy jam lady. Since moving last year I have become kind of obsessed with living a little closer to the Earth, including being more aware of seasons and where our food comes from. So now I try to capture some of the fruits of summer by making jams to last us all winter.

This layout is based on a sketch from Your Scrapbook Stash; I played with Glimmer Mist, some papers and stickers from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park line, and my trusty Kreaxions 903 punch. And a bunch of flowers, buttons, and tags from my stash.

First day of School

Ok, I'm a little late getting this posted, since the kids went back Tuesday, but better late than never, right? Gabi is a kindergartener this year (gulp!), and Noah is very excited to be a big kid in his classroom. They have slipped right back into their school routines and love being back at Riverbend Montessori. Gabi even assigned herself homework the other night!

What a wonderful weekend...

We said goodbye this morning to our dear friends, Mary, Lisa, and Meryl, who traveled to spend the last weekend of the summer with us. Hurricane Earl brought a slight hiccup to our plans to spend the whole time on the Cape, but we made it down Saturday morning and had a wonderful visit with dear friends. What a lovely way to wrap up our vacation.
