November Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the leaves on our trees could be the same color as these?  As an artist, I would love to have our maple and oak leaves to be something other than green.  As it is, the leaves are all off our trees as of last week!  We had our first hard frost Saturday night, so any remaining flowers are rather dead looking as they go underground to hibernate. <heavy sigh>  None of this, however, bothers me once it snows.

I also have a new Fan Freebie!  I went a little "freestyle wonky" on this one, but I hope you enjoy it!  I used the same colors as the Blog Train so that you can mix and match as you please.

October Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

Although the days are getting shorter, I love the deep, rich colors of Fall.  It's sort of the last "hurrah" before it snows.  This is also the time of year that I pull out all of my pumpkin recipes -- Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Cookies, Pumpkin Bars and my favorite . . . Pumpkin Mini Cakes.  Yumm!  So now that I've made you all hungry, grab a cup of coffee and start downloading!

September Pixel Scrapper Blog Train -- "At The Zoo"

I was feeling a little black-n-white when I started working on this kit AND you all know I'm crazy about anything that resembles a horse, so I chose the zebra.  Here's just a little bit of trivia about these fascinating animals . . .

Zebras are black with white stripes (not the other way around).  But, if you shaved a zebra, you would find it had totally black skin underneath all the hair.  The foals are born with brown stripes that will turn black as it matures.  The most interesting fact is that their striped pattern is as unique to them as our fingerprints are to us -- no two zebra patterns are ever the same.

August Pixel Scrapper Blog Train -- "Good Vibes"

I like August.  All the flowers I planted in the spring are now in their full blooming glory.  All the tiny seeds I planted in the garden are now vegetables on our table.  The hay is in and now we can start getting the stables ready for winter, which will be here as fast as June turned into August, I'm afraid.

The "Good Vibes" blog train is filled with lots of colorful papers and elements you'll be able to use for many different occasions.  Have fun!  I also have a coordinating Fan Freebie to go along with it.  Just click the link on the right side of this page to download from my website.  Enjoy!

July Pixel Scrapper Blog Train . . . "Summer Lovin"

The vibrant colors for this month's blog train are perfect for all your summer photos.  I'd love nothing more than to be walking the LA beaches again this summer, but I'll be gardening instead and training one unruly pony.  He's a beautiful blue roan, but he's the baby of the herd and thinks he can get away with all sorts of shenanigans.  He needs to learn some manners.  Amazing what you can accomplish with horse treats, apple slices and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! :)

June Pixel Scrapper Blog Train . . . "Nature Escape"

I love being outside with the sun on my face and the wind at my back, preferably on the back of a horse.  But, even on foot, everything outside is better.  It's real.  And this time of year is such a joy to watch all the perennials come alive after a long winter's nap and watching them bloom, new colts in the corrals and the cutest baby kittens in the barn.  Hello June!

May Pixel Scrapper Blog Train ... "Destinations"

I've lived in several different places across the country, from some of the largest cities to towns on the edge of nowhere.  And I have visited a lot of different places and countries.  Loved them all.  But, for my destination I have chosen where I now call "home" -- New Glarus Wisconsin.  The first time I visited this area looking for a new house several years ago, I fell in love with it.  So, let me give you a short tour before moving onto what you really came here for!

Swiss tradition is alive and well here, and the town has over 2 million visitors each year.  This very large church is the first building you see when you come over the last hill into town on the highway and the chimes that play at noon each day are beautiful.

We have organizations and businesses just like every other town, but in New Glarus, it all has a Swiss flair from architecture to bakery goods.  (Most towns have a bakery.  We have a Backerei with the most delicious "Orange Blossoms".

These Swiss Cows are kept by various businesses throughout town.  Each cow is painted to exemplify the goods inside -- restaurants, flower shops, parks, etc.  The cow by the clinic has a cast on his leg, stethoscope around his neck and band-aids.  In keeping with the theme of our Swiss Village, the brewing company built a Swiss Village brewery and has brought numerous job opportunities to the community.

And now for some FREEBIES!

April Pixel Scrapper Blog Train

When I started working on this kit, I was thinking April couldn't come fast enough.  This has been the weirdest winter!  It was warmer in February than it was in March.  And this week, it's been cold and rainy all week long.  I just want the sun to shine and be warm enough that I can pack away my winter gear.  Is that asking too much? 

This month's theme is Raindrops and Rainbows.  The colors are so bright and cheerful . . . even on this blustery, blustery day.  Enjoy!
