And on to the Honeymoon

. . . but first, we have to get there.


When I pulled out these pictures to scrap, the first title that came to me was "relax."  As I put together the layout, however, I realized that I had selected vibrant, contrasting colors. I thought about replacing the orange with another blue, and the pink with white, but then it occurred to me that the color choices reflected my personality (I don't really relax well), and my excitement about thie trip.

Emergency Cast On

Snow left us stranded in West Haven, Connecticut on the way home from WEBS year-end blow out sale. I had finished a sweater the morning of the trip, and didn't have anything new on the needles. Since I was the driver, I decided not to bring anything. Fortunately, I had gotten some nice yarn at WEBS (Zen Garden Serenity 20 in Silversmith) and one of my traveling companions was kind enough to take one of her projects off the needles so I could knit.  I went onto Ravelry and downloaded Sweet Caroline Shawl by Mary Annarella.



I was within several inches of finishing the bind off when I ran out of yarn. Caked the second skein and used 2 grams to finish.

My Hand, My Heart, and My Love

This layout could have been included in "My Favorite Things" post because my wedding march, written by my husband, is definitely one of my favorite things.  I'm waiting for it to be recorded. Until then, I remember my wedding march through photos.



The title of this wedding layout comes from our vows.  And the last photo is my favorite of all of our wedding photos.

My Favorite Things

My online scrapbooking group's theme this year is "my favorite things." We each take a turn hosting challenges, and share with the group some of our favorite things.  I'm taking the lead, hosting January.  I just finished a simple notecard to send out with my package, which I did in green, my favorite color.


I kept the card simple, using an old A Stamp in the Hand wood-mounted stamp that I've been  holding onto forever, inked in a variety of Ranger inks.  Abby kept me company while I worked.
