Things going on...

The summer is officially almost over. We've been to the fair (I went twice) and ate too much. Matthew starts 1st grade on Tuesday. The weather is getting a little cooler in the evening. Though I heard on the radio that it's going to be 90+ degrees tomorrow. Huh?

Where did the time go? Our challenge posts have fallen off the wagon. We didn't get an anniversary sale in yet. We are still planning on having one and our challenges will once again return. But for now, enjoy what's left of the summer. Play outside, laugh, smile, and take more photos!

Oh, I suppose I should share a little news since it is part of the reason I have been so busy. We are expecting another little one in January. Matthew and Tyler will be big brothers! :) Our family has been praying for this for some time now and we hope that we continue to be blessed with the good things in life. Cherish them always...

Scraploft celebrates 2 years!

Yes, it has been two years since Scraploft went live on the net. The last two years have been full of ups and downs. The industry is changing constantly. We are busy ladies. But we have enjoyed every bit of it. The past year has been a challenge for us and the business. We have watched many other stores fall. I have found this difficult. As I have considered this endeavor one of my "babies" it would be hard to let go. So we are charging ahead for now. Who knows what the future will bring for us? For now we are celebrating working together as a team for 2 years. Thank you to my business partner and friend, Sarah. Whatever happens we will know we did it together.

We are hoping to have a sale and blog giveaway soon! :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this journey. To our families, our friends, and our customers-THANK YOU!!!

We have a new baby in our family too. My little sis, Melissa, had a baby girl on August 13th. Welcome to the world, Isabella!

Busy, Busy Summer

My family and I returned yesterday from a week-long vacation in the northern part of Minnesota. We went to a cabin with my in-laws for 4 days and then to a family reunion on my side for the last 4. It was a wonderful time and we enjoyed spending time with everyone. Both of my boys now love the water. And Matthew's favorite thing to do now is fish! He caught over 50 fish over the course of the week. They were small ones-perch and sunnies-but hey we were all proud of him!

Though a vacation is nice it was also good to be home last night. Good to sleep in my bed. Good to hear the noises of the cities. Good to watch a little TV. Just an all-around good feeling.

That week away has just added to an already busy summer in our household. Both Sarah and I are having a crazy (but a good crazy) time. That has caused us to get a bit behind on our challenge posts. I haven't scrapped much at all this summer actually. We are going on a retreat towards the end of this month, so our hope is to get a few of the challenge posts done. Then we can share them with all of you! So continue to be patient with us.

We hope your summer is gong as well as ours is...
