September in Review

I'm teaching at my old store this Saturday, 10/15.  I had grandiose plans for the page this month, but ended up going with simple.  Simple is good.  The paper is We R Memory Keepers Autumn Splendor & it is quite lovely.  I hope you'll join me!
Life is beautiful....sometimes we need a reminder.

One of my favorite customers was an older gentleman named Luis. Luis is a tiny, sweet man who lives in the Valley and is OBSESSED with all things Halloween. He's also a ghost hunter.  Luis would come into my store & spend an hour telling me about his latest adventure with the "ghosties".  He particularly loves going to Jerome at Halloween & staying in very specific rooms at the main hotel there.  He loves The Weatherford Hotel & The Museum Club, too.  Each time I saw him he would swear he had an encounter with a ghostie during his travels.  Luis loves Halloween even more than I do & he would buy every little Halloween thing in my store for his ghostie scrapbook.  We talked cameras, ghosties & the goofy things they do in Jerome for Halloween.

Such a sweet, sweet man.  Makes a girl almost miss her store.  Almost.

Fall Profile

I concede.  It is fall, whether I like it or not.  It's not so much fall that I dislike, it's that after fall comes winter.  And winter brings snow.  I know...I choose to live in a place that has four maybe I shouldn't drag my feet into fall.  But with the days getting shorter, it's hard not to. 

To put me in more of a fall mood, I've changed my blog around.  I'm kinda liking the retro harvest gold colors.  And here's a very un-fall looking photo I took today:

This is only a test

After a conversation with Audra this morning about photo processing I decided to take the same 34 photos & see which processing I like the best. I'm currently uploading to:,,, & (and while I'm uploading, I'm looking for phone covers...hey, a girl has to multi task). They'll be judged by: delivery time, quality, price & ease of use. And if course I'll post my findings.

Who do you love for photo processing? Why?
