I've moved!!!

This last year has been a whirlwind of changes and I'm hoping it's finally going to settle just a bit. I got divorced last August and I'm currently in Paris, France waiting to marry my sweetheart from when I was 19. I've started a new blog, called, "Inara's Art", focusing on the various art forms that I do, not just scrapbooking. It can be found here:

I can't bear to erase this blog though because it really documented some difficult years in my life. But I won't be posting here again.

So farewell.

Pink Paislee Warehouse Sale Ecstasy!!!!

Ever since I first read about this amazing sale I have been waiting for our budget to oblige me. Finally, it did! Last Thursday at 3am I ordered this with trembling fingers!!!! It arrived today, unbelievably fast! I have been stalking since she also ordered a box, but mine has different stuff in it, which I guess I'm pretty happy with. I got some of the new lines of paper, rather than older stuff, which is cool since I didn't really have much of the new stuff. So, here's what I got in my box! I separated it according to line:





Sweet Cakes

Vintage Moon

Office Lingo

Spring Fling

Tinsel Town

Pop Fashion

Here's my sneak peek, it is from their new line, Amber Road

This stuff isn't specific to any line

Obviously for $55 including shipping that was just one absolutely stunning deal. My husband even said, "Why don't they just give the stuff away for free?"

Ray And Grace

These photos were taken in a photo booth around Christmas, 1942. My grandparents look so adorably lovesick! I wanted to capture the beauty of that time, and just the hope I see in their faces. They really did have such a long, happy life together. This was done on a 2 foot by 3 foot canvas.

Vintage Project

In honor of my grandma, whom I miss so painfully right now...this is her and her mother on a horse, circa 1932 or so...I love you grandma! I can't wait to see you again in heaven someday...

fun mail

This came today! I'm obsessed with ledger papers, so when I saw this, the 8x8 SLICE paper pad by Making Memories, I had to have it.

Oh Beautiful, For Spacious Skies...

The incomparable view from the trail going up Multnomah Falls, which Jesse and I bravely attempted today. We did not succeed in reaching the top of the falls, but we will someday, together!!! I even got stung by a bee in the car on the way and we still managed to conquer most of the trail. (I have n very severe bee-phobia) I forgot my camera at work this weekend, so these are all from my cellphone, I'm rather pleased with the quality, actually.

Jesse forgets to smile quite a bit, stinker! I got him to give his sweet smile though in at least one photo:

When we got home we had dinner and then rented 2 movies from the redbox. What a fantastic day!!!!!!!!!!! I love my man so much!
