Surprises

It was announced, so now I can tell you:  I am thrilled & honored to have been chosen by Flourishes to be one of the Guest Designers in December!  My feet have still not hit the ground!  My entry is posted HERE if you missed it.

Surprise #2: Fall in Oregon is beautiful--even if you don't find it on the list of places to see for color. Here are a couple pictures I snapped while we had our last camping trip of the season.  Weather was incredible--cold at night & sunny during the day.

It's going to take me some time to catch up with all of you, but don't think I've forgotten.  Anxious to do some crafting & hope to have a card posted tomorrow.  I so appreciate you stopping by.

Congrats, Greta - your submission was beautiful! Very exciting!

It finally is cold enough for some gorgeous color. I think a lot of leaves here are brown and icky but the pretty colors finally showed up this week. Your photos are very pretty!

Happy dancing, wild clapping and plenty of yayyyyy accompany this wonderful news you've shared! Well-deserved! Your creativity and talent makes you a most awesome GD (and we know that one opportunity opens the doors for more!). Your photos of fall in Oregon: stunning!! We've visited your wonderful state in summer and spring, so far; based on these pictures, I think a fall visit *must* be added to the list!!
