Well, here I am!
The summer is almost done, workshops are about to begin, so it's time I achieved my goal of starting a blog. So here I am.
A little about me...I teach high school students English, I am a wife, a very tired mother of two very active boys, a reader, a scrapper, a gardener. I grew up in Maine, went to Minnesota to attend college at St. Olaf (Um Yah Yah!), and now live and work here still.
I have been a crafter my whole life, first with cross-stitching, which I still do, then gardening when we bought our house in 1998, and starting in 2002 I scrapped. I still scrap, as you can see by my links. In the summer, my heart belongs to my garden, though. The photo on the right shows why. That's my big garden at its glory in July: heliopsis (false sunflowers), gooseneck loosestrife, purple coneflowers, asclepias (butterfly weed), liatris (gayfeather), Asiatic lilies, and right in the middle a daylily that I think is called "Happy Day." Every morning for a week I look out at my garden and see that bloom. Happy indeed.
Last night I scrapped for a few hours at Archiver's, so I'll post some of what I did tomorrow.
