This was a wonderful summer in so many ways. Lots of quiet family time, lots of hours spent unplugged and outside, lots of great adventures and memories. This was also the summer that every single piece of technology I own broke. My phone. Then a TV. Then my laptop (multiple times until I replaced it about 2 weeks ago). Then my camera.
Yes. My CAMERA.
I was 3 minutes into Miss E’s first soccer game and it made a horrid thunk noise…
This was the worst of all. The biggest betrayal. How could it dare to do that to me??? I am looking into getting it repaired, but the cost will be great enough that replacement is the far better option. So yes, that happened. I joke that I should go ahead and buy a new printer because ‘ol reliable (aka my wide format printer from HP that i got back in 2005!!!) is the only thing left that hasn’t crapped out.
Anyhow. I’m really ready for fall and a new season that doesn’t involve the death of technology and too many hours researching, buying, and learning new equipment.
I’m ready for pretty fall leaves and pumpkins to decorate my house, to find beautiful new treasures (isn’t that Mixed Media by Danita Art FABULOUS?! I so want it. Check out her shop– tons of awesome new goodies!), and to enjoy crisp cool mornings as well.
I want to fill up my fall pinterest board with all kinds of finds, treasures, and inspirational ideas.
I want to have energy to create more once again… August has not been good to me creatively speaking. I will talk more about that, and how I ‘fixed’ my inspiration issues as well.
Yes, I’m going to call summer off and call September first the start of Autumn. It is STAMPtember over at www.simonsaysstamp.com – and I’m excited to join in and be a part of that. The www.bigpictureclasses.com free idea festival is on – and I’m a part of that as well. There is a LOT of amazing stuff to look forward to, and I want to make this a September to remember. I’ve got a big line up of projects, features, prizes, and more here on my blog too.
After all – with all new technology in the house I ought to be better than ever – right?!
Now excuse me while I have Melissa help me figure out how to take a photo on the new (big girl) camera, ask my husband how to set some things up here on my laptop, and prepare to make September one to remember…
