An update from Tara- BIG news!

I have some big news, I won't keep you in suspense...
I am due around Valentine's Day! We recently moved into a new home...
I have been concentrating a lot on my mixed media art work
Here is a piece I recently finished
It is on a 40X60 canvas and has several different textures and mediums on it
It is available for sale in my store

Here is a 4 piece canvas that I recently sold
These canvases were 12x12 each

July 17 was my birthday, I am now 29
I know 29 is still young but I have a sneaking suspicion that
the years will just fly by from here on out.
What's that saying?
"The days are so long, but the years are so short"
For any of you that have moved and had to move all of your scrapping supplies
I'm sure you can relate, it is NOT fun!
Paper weighs a TON and it really gives you perspective on how
fast the stuff can accumulate!
Lately I have been very good about not buying more scrapbook supplies
unless I know it's something I am going to use in the very near future.
It is so easy to let this hobby turn into a product hoarding frenzy and
that is SO not what it's about
It's about preserving memories and in 15 years my kids won't care
whether I used the latest or trendiest products on their scrapbooks
With school being out my scrapping time has been pretty non existent
but here are 2 pages I managed to quickly crank out
the other night:

Koby has started moved up from machine pitch to kid pitch baseball
He is one heck of a pitcher, so fun and intense to watch!
During a recent game he had 9 strike outs and held a total shut out
until the last inning of the game

We recently went to Steamboat Springs, CO to take Koby's team
to play in the World Series.
It was the first time I'd been to the state and I fell in love!
The mountain air, the amazing scenery, and everyone is so active!
Everywhere you look people are riding bikes, walking their dogs,
I just loved the lifestyle there.
We will go back next July and I am counting the days.
I would love to go there this winter and see Colorado in it's snow covered majesty.
I doubt being pregnant on skis is that good of an idea though...

I can make all the promises in the world about trying to blog more often
but the reality is life happens and gets in the way
I miss blogging and miss hearing from all of my online friends
All I can do is try to get back in the habit of updating, once it
becomes more of a habit it's easier and becomes second nature
Thanks for reading my update
I hope each and every one of you are doing well!!
