Captain Obvious is here to tell you that changes are happening.

Here is a flower from outside my dwelling three weeks ago:

And here is a flower from outside my dwelling a couple hours ago:

Yes, we moved from New Mexico to Iowa (note new blog title). I accepted a full-time job at my alma mater doing what I love. The daughter is making friends, which is definitely good. The husband is still back in New Mexico preparing the house to be sold. So, now things have settled down, which means I have time to make pretty things and blog.

Most recently I have been using Wishes for inspiration. In this excellent how-to book, there is a section called Celebration Card Workshop which gives instructions on how to make 12 cards , two each of six designs. So, that became my weekend project.

I displayed the cards on my new Umbra Fotofalls. I have wanted one since I saw one at Christmas, and I finally stumbled across one at Archivers at the Mall of America (only 3 hours away!).
