Bountiful Blessings


Happy Thanksgiving!

I do hope you and yours have enjoyed a marvelous time of giving thanks and indulging in all the best home-cooked fare you can handle! Open-mouthed smile We have our oldest son and his wife here for the holiday, and what a blessing that truly is! We are missing our youngest son who is dutifully serving on a submarine, though we do hope to hear that he has had a few hours off to spend around a holiday table with good friends.

In digiscrapping news, I have a wonderful new kit and a coordinating template pack in my shop today – Bountiful Blessings! As you can see from the previews, this kit is created with soft hues of harvesttime and offers a bounty of beautiful papers and embellishments for scrapping your blessings! It also includes some elegant wordart to accent scrap pages and greetings cards, too. The kit and template pack are each on sale at 25% off all weekend at GingerScraps.

Here’s a closer look at all that is included in the Bountiful Blessings kit  ($3 on sale!):




And here is the fabulous template pack:

Foto Funday {week 45 | 2011}



Have you ever noticed how many movies & cartoons have running jokes about squirrels?? We have, & we think it’s hilarious, especially since our dog exactly like Dug in the movie “UP” – totally nuts at the slightest hint of a squirrel! lol! Other shows that fall in this category include Penguins of Madagascar and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory/Willy Wonka. Tickles my funny bone! This “nutty” little guy was posing for me when we were over in Montana a couple weeks ago … and just look at the amazing autumn foliage we saw while we were there …




Back here at home we had some beautiful views of the autumn foliage, including the brightly yellow Tamaracks, along with the first hints of snow on the Selkirk Mountains on October 29th.


This gorgeous view is what I see each time I drive home from making a run to the dump. Makes an unpleasant chore much more enjoyable to see this!


This is our porch on Halloween night – Jim did such an awesome job on those pumpkins! Open-mouthed smile


Mmmmmmm……Halloween candy! Open-mouthed smile


On Halloween night we had our regular visit from our little quartet of whitetail deer, only this time they bedded down in the front yard not 15 feet from the porch. They didn’t even mind when we turned on the porch light, talked out loud, and took photos. Never budged. Next morning it turned out they were just waiting for us to go inside and turn out the lights so they could sneak up to the porch and nibble on the last of my petunias as well as a few teeth out of Jim’s jack o’lanterns! Open-mouthed smile


The fields out front look so gorgeous each morning with the frost on the grasses!



Isn’t autumn just a gorgeous and wonderful season?? It is certainly my favorite!

(Oh, did you all remember to set your clocks back this morning?? Open-mouthed smile)

Blessings to you!
