It has been such a long time since I posted anything to this blog! It hasn't been because I stopped scrapping - far from it! But as we all know, life frequently gets in the way of things and blogging was one activity that went by the way side over the past two years. The most significant change in our lives has been a move from the suburbs to the rural life of a 14-acre hobby farm. The other major change was my loosing my job six months ago but that's far more depressing to discuss than the farm so I'll stick to that for now! I'll start posting more about the farm in the coming weeks but in the meantime, I decided to post the latest spring happenings - the return of the birds.
This time of year we get literally hundreds of birds out our back of every variety - the typical cardinal, sparrow, and blue birds but also warblers, red-crested woodpeckers, great horned owls, and many more (many of which we have yet been able to identify). And like many areas, we get the black birds and grackles. Thankfully the onslaught of these is only occasional as I don't think I could handle the cacophony any more frequently. Despite the noise, I still appreciate the spectacle - after all, we moved out here to better appreciate all the amazing things that rural life brings, even if it sometimes feel Hitchcock-esque!
The layout for this was inspired by a Sketch+3 challenge at Scrap Our Stash that was a sketch plus three items from a list - I chose Graph paper (the tag on the left), Heidi Swapp (the tiny tags from a 2012 Tiny Tag pack), and Ivory (the background).
Thanks for looking!
