Home again, home again.

We made it home safely from the beach yesterday afternoon. It was a fabulous trip, and I am still relishing all of the wonderful family time. Lots of laughs, giggles and squeals from our two sweet sons. Lots of wonderful hang-out time with my hubby each evening. So grateful for our sweet family that God has blessed us with. So grateful to take off for a week with no schedule or plans except to be together. 

Although it was hard to leave, it was great to get back, get everything washed and (almost) put away, put the boys to bed in their own rooms, and write down my to-do list (which includes checking/responding to the most emails in my blog/business account I have ever seen, lol ;)). 

Now also begins the work of deciding which and how many photos to print for my travel journal. I had 500 photos last night. I now have about 250. Narrowing it down. Haha :) Will share soon.
In other news:
+ Today marks the first official day of Autumn! Yay! I am working on my own Autumn Art Journal and will also share that soon. If you still need one for yourself, go here. I only have a handful left :)

+ I will be picking a random winner for the Eco Craft book giveaway sometime this weekend, so stay tuned, and enter if you would like a chance to win! :)

+ I am working on putting together Christmas items (say what?! it's that time of year already?!) and the 2011 Christmas Art Journal kit. These journals are perfect for documenting your holiday season, especially if you are participating in Ali Edwards' December Daily. If you are interested in pre-ordering one, please shoot me an email at thecreativeplace {at} gmail {dot} com for more information.

Have a fabulous weekend :) Enjoy the official start of Autumn. Now hopefully the weather will cooperate and cool down :)
