Fall Crafting and Books

Fall weather is quickly approaching and this past weekend we decided to start some Halloween crafts.  Elin is really starting to sit down and work on little art projects and crafts.  I am not very good at crafting so I opt to go the easy route and buy the little pre-made craft sets from places like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and Jo-Anne’s.  I was late to shopping for them this year and there was not a lot of Halloween or Fall sets left but we did find this little black cat.  I’ve already stocked up on a some Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts for us to do in a few months.

Elin was excited to be making a “ducky-ration” for the house.  I just love the way she says decoration!

Elin loves books and she especially gets excited about holiday-specific books. She has been enjoying books that are longer and have more substance to them, but these books are still of the simpler variety with flaps and touch a feel options. They are cute and since we have read them so many times, she always points out everything and repeats the words in the book.

My First Post

I can’t believe I am writing my very first blog post! I have been contemplating starting a blog many times and now I am happy and excited that I have finally taken the plunge. My main motivation for starting this blog is to document my daughter Elin’s life. She is already 20 months old and I wish I had started documenting from the beginning. When I would work on her baby book, I kept thinking that there would be so many more milestones and activities to document after the first year; but without formally scrapbooking, I would never keep it all straight.

I hope that this blog will allow me to not only online scrapbook but to also explore my interests and creative outlets. I hope you will keep coming back to read more about our adventures!
