Why is it that summer comes and goes SO FAST?
One of my all time favourite things about summer is enjoying a nice big slice of watermelon! It just speaks SUMMER! And, every single child loves to indulge in it as well. So, before January ends, we had to make sure to capture these precious moments.

When I first saw this collection you could say I swooned just a tad over it. This colour palette is my go-to. It is the colours that I use in decorating my house, and also what I have used predominantly in my scrapbooks over the years. You could say it is my comfort zone. So, most definitely, it was so easy for me to create with. It reminds me of snuggling up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book. Comfort. It also reminds me of my grandmother and great-grandmother. The doily looking overlay on the paper, the birds, and the vintage clock in the stickers.

Adventure can be described as an exciting or very unusual experience, to take the chance of, or to take the risk involved.

We all love to getaway. Whether it is for a day, a weekend, or a week-long vacation- it refreshes the body and soul.
Last summer, my husband and I took a week off of work to move both of our boys into their new homes. One to his sophomore year of college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the other to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for his first year of law school. It was an adventure to say the least. We travelled over 3000 miles and saw parts of the country that we had never seen before. We loved capturing photos of the road signs and countryside along the way.

I was recently at a baby shower for a friend. The mother-to-be is obsessed with cute foxes, so the location was beautifully decorated with handcrafted woodsy-themed baby decorations, the food was cleverly named with forest creatures in mind (e.g., bare meatballs with sauce served on the side were labelled as Bear Balls), and the games were equally as well-thought-out and personalised for the future mum. The only thing that wasn’t well-thought-out and customised? The baby shower cards.
As I watched her open card after card and gift card after gift card (all bearing the same company name and image, mind you), it dawned on me how special a handmade baby shower card could be.

This day is just flying by!
So much of Australia is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend! Here in NSW we are having some very WARM weather this Summer. But, it means that we are longing for Autumn–which we know is realistically a few months away. Before we can think about Autumn, we need to think about Valentine’s Day!
