I mentioned a little while ago that we went snowshoeing at Crater Lake. Well, here's the proof! It was a glorious sunny day, not cold at all. The ranger who led the hike said we were on about 6 feet of snow, which is a lot, but apparently only half of what they usually have at this time of year. It's one of the snowiest places in all of the USA. It was a slightly surreal experience because most of the drive there was not covered in snow, and in fact we were wearing short-sleeves and enjoying the sunshine. It was only a few miles from the park that we started to see snow. And then suddenly there was a lot!
A rather significant change happened recently, which I feel the need to memorialize here on the blog. When Jordan and I got married (almost seven years ago!), I received as wedding present a pair of shoes. Little did I know at the time how far and how long those shoes would take me. I am here now seven years later to put those shoes to rest.
To my Chacos...
In all weathers: sun, rain and snow.
In Asia, Europe and the Americas.
On roads, bikes, boats and more.
In air, on land and sea.
In homes near and far.
Basically, anywhere I needed to go.
I wonder where the next ones will go?
It's a surprise bundle! At least for me, I don't usually have new stuff on Thursdays, so this morning when I logged in I was like, "what kits have I uploaded today??!!" And I didn't find it disappointing when I saw all the tremendous felt animals made by Melouise. The two of us together are a bit of a problem, and I'm surprised this bundle ever got finished with our addiction to felt cuteness. Ever since I saw these sheep I have been in hopeless love with Melo's felt animals. So it wasn't long before I convinced her to make more. And I'm sure this isn't the end, so prepare yourselves for an onslaught of cuteness.
Also, I snuck up these grass textures which I think go with the bundle nicely.
I'm sure I'll be using these felt animals whenever I feel like it, regardless of theme, (as I've been known to do). And I hope you do too. Here's some fun inspiration from the creative team.
The last week we've had absolutely perfect weather. Here's a picture of the sky:
On Saturday we had a very exciting outing to Crater Lake where we went snowshoeing. I'll be back later with more details on that, but first I have to make a mini kit for the occasion!
I have some new stuff for you today, including an Easter Mini. But be sure to check out the kits page because a lot of new stuff has been going up. Also, I'll be back on Thursday with a new and exciting collab!
I'm excited to announce our first Pixel Scrapper designer hop! I hope you'll enjoy this little bundle that we've made. If you're a Pixel Scrapper subscriber you can find the kits here in the regular stream of things if you prefer to download that way, or else you can visit each designer at their "home"!

Pixel Scrapper Blog
Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!
I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!
I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!
If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.
