New Fantastic Freebies Coming!

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 07/26/2013 - 17:34

You may or may not have noticed that my Facebook and newsletter freebies haven't changed much this summer. In fact, they haven't changed at all! Well, I'm in the process of working on that, and since it's been so long since I've had something new, I've decided to work on something extra special. But I need your help! I've started working up a new kit, but I need a name to inspire me and give me a theme to help flush out the kit. Please leave me your ideas below!

Kit Name Needed!


Summer Travels: The Lake District

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 07/24/2013 - 09:35

About a million years ago, at the beginning of June, Jordan and I took a trip to the Lake District in England. We were flying through England anyway on our way back to the States, and it was a good chance to stop and see Jordan's sister who was working at a retreat center there. It was a really wonderful place to stop and relax before embarking on our relocation project.











I figure the photos must look pretty nice to you, but imagine landing here after 2 years in the desert with no trees and no grass. It seemed rather excessive and was quite disorientating. It was a blessing to have an entire week to readjust to the green overload before we had to deal with anything else; to just be able to walk around and soak it all up.

When we first arrived I kept breaking out into a sweat, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me since it was really quite cooler than what I was used to. Then it occurred to me that it was just really humid. There was so much water everywhere, I guess my body decided it didn't need to horde it anymore...

We took lots of fantastic walks, ate lots of delicious treats, and had a great time readjusting to life with green.


June 2013: Better Late Than Never

By Marisa Lerin Sat, 07/20/2013 - 14:57

For 2013 I've been trying to make a layout a month. I fell a bit behind due to the busy summer months, but as long as you write the list, you can always go back and make the layout. So I've finally got on top of it today, and I decided to stick in my photo a day collage as well. I used the part I made for the upcoming DSF blog train in August; a little sneak peak for you!
