Onto A New Adventure

I woke up to seeing my breath this morning.  It was that chilly, but they expect we'll see 90 degrees tomorrow.  Maine weather is extremely temperamental!  These cool mornings remind me of the start of school and my favorite season...fall.  Of course, it also means that summer is closing up shop and the girls won't be home during the days to keep me company on our many adventures.  I love spending time with them and I'll miss their giggles and smiles, but just like anything else, it must come to an end so that another adventure can begin.  

But before I ceded to summer completely, I took the girls on one last adventure.  We rode our bikes down to the river and enjoyed climbing the rocks and exploring this past weekend.

 The girls ended up taking a dip and had to ride back in wet clothes, but they had a blast!

It was a nice end to our summer activities, and it made the first day of school yesterday a little easier to handle.

My daughters, Madison (4th gr.), Mackenzie (1st gr.), and my nephew, Kolby (4th gr.) 

My oldest, Molly, is going into 7th grade and refused to let me take her picture as did my nephew, Kade, who is entering 6th.  Tweens!

Although I'll miss them and our lives will again become about routine and schedules, I'm looking forward to some time to myself creating in my studio.  I do have a few items to share already, but I'll save that for next time.  

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,

Coming or Going?

What a hectic few days, and it's only Tuesday!  

I don't know about you, but the summer season is slow for Reverie Creations in the way of sales, so I try to spend my time promoting the store and looking for ways to expand my customer base.  I've recently signed up for a Twitter account with the help of a dear friend, and I can be found under @PaperGodess (please follow me!).  It's a little overwhelming to learn another social networking platform, but I do think it'll help the store, so I'm diving in feet first...
That's trepidation you're witnessing!

I've also decided to 'open' another store at eCrater.  It's a free online site builder, so I really don't have anything to lose other than my time (can we please add another 4 hours to the day!).  You can check it out here: Reverie Creations.  eCrater is associated with Google so they do a lot of promoting for you with their searches...again it's free...and free is good!

I hope you find some time to craft today.  Me?  I'm going to tweak and Tweet.

Just wanted to stop in and share a few photos of our summer ...
My youngest, Mackenzie, on the 'chopper' bike.  She has finally mastered riding this bike after hours of practice.
My oldest, Molly, at Roller World.  We all love to skate!
Madison and Mackenzie at Funtown.  The lines were long and the weather hot, but we had a blast that day!!
Here is my Peanut, Madison, relaxing after a busy summer day with our dog, Scooter.
It wouldn't be summer without visits to the coast!
The kids love to explore the rocks and all the little tidal pools...
and catch a few waves.  I think going to the beach is one of our favorite summer activities, and since we live only a half hour drive from the coast, it's a weekly adventure.

We've done so much this summer and created lots of wonderful memories without venturing too far from home.  What have you done this summer?

Take some time for family,
