June Recapitulation

Can you believe that 2014 is already 1/2 over...seriously how did that happen? This month has been a good one for my family. Our kids finished up school for the year (finishing 4th and 8th grade and did great in their classes.) We have spent time at the pool, one went to camp, one went on vacation, and Eric and I had a few days to ourselves. It was pretty great, even though we stayed home and hung out (except when he went to work.)

In other news of the scrappy variety, this past week there was some very sad news, Two Peas in a Bucket announced they were closing their doors. I loved looking at the galleries there and the awesome inspiration from the Garden Girls....and the fabulous videos full of inspiration, oh how I will miss them.

I fully admit at still being a little blue after this announcement, but accepting I guess. In the last year my two favorite places have closed (Archiver's and Two Peas in a Bucket.) It is so disheartening to see such great companies close their doors. It makes me wonder if it is perceived by others outside of the scrapbooking world that paper crafting is not valued? That crafters creations are not it cards, scrapbooking, Project Life, art books, sewings, and what not. It's something to think about.

Regardless of outsiders perception of scrapbooking, I know that scrapbooking will be around as long as we keep creating and sharing with one another. I plan on doing just that, every week here on this blog. Long live paper crafts!

If you are new to my blog, or missed a post, here are all of the blog topics covered this month. Just click on any link below and it will take you right back to the original blog post. :-)
I will be blogging all month, but from an entirely different location...Washington State to be exact. My family and I are currently in our home state visiting some amazing peeps! I will still be blogging and already have a couple posts prepped, so please keep stopping by. :-)

I have a lot of plans for this blog that will be coming up this fall.  A huge list of ideas and things already in the works since the first of this year, and I can't wait to share later. I appreciate you so much being here and sharing this little slice of blogland with me. It really means a lot to have so much support in my crafty (and other endeavors.) Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

Until next time,

Happy Scrappin'
