Location: Rush Ranch – Eastern Oregon
Wx: Fall, cool and clear
I have made a personal decision and will no longer be posting scrapbooking designs in the Pixel Scrapper’s “The Commons”, nor will I participate in their Designer Forums. Not because of anything going on over at the Pixelscrapper community – No. The folks there are helpful, nurturing and kind. Really good to me. Simply, I have reached a personal turning point in my life where I want to do something different with the majority of my time. Walking a different path. (Alright Lord, you can stop pushing now……) When I design in the future – and I will continue to design – I will be posting my designs here on this blog. If you subscribe to my blog, you will always be alerted to a new download. As always, my designs shall be free to download, and may be used as you wish, including CU4CU. I simply ask that you do a kindness for someone you come across, in the future.
Things here on the ranch are gearing up for winter. Fruit trees are being trimmed, New hay stored in the barn. Garden and flower beds being cleaned up. Tractors being moved into storage. It may sound pretty straight-forward, but there is always a glitch somewhere. This fall’s glitch is a result of the garden shovel hitting the windshield of the truck. Windshield replacement has now been scheduled. Apparently someone I am married to was putting his tools out on a pallet to clean and oil them before storage, but forgot that the handles stuck out to the side of the pallet, as he drove by them. He ran over the handle of the shovel and it broke and the metal spade flew up in the air and came down on the windshield. I ran outside and hugged him, because I knew that he would be upset with himself about it. You never grouch at a good man, when he is down. Here is a photo of the crack looking from inside the truck and up into the sky…….
I have a scrapbooking question for you – do you use any of those borders that I make with the curved backgrounds, clustered with flowers and leaves? Or, would you just rather have the clusters themselves?
The Blog Hop colors were a real challenge for a lot of our designers, only because the colors and the theme didn’t seem to be compatible. “Elegant Autumn”, with not a single rust, burgundy, gold, brown, red…………
As usual, everyone seemed to make it work. That’s the thing that really energizes creativity, being tasked with ideas that are outside of the norm. I hope that you will find something you can use in my kit for this Blog Hop. By the way, I have two previews for the elements, but there is only one download needed for them.
Have a wonderful start to your month of November!
