Today’s hodgepodge of random photos includes one from Shipshewana, Indiana. I recently met my friend, Marion, there for a girl’s day of browsing, relaxing lunch, and a buggy ride Amish-style. Since Shipshewana is a well-known Amish community, there are hand-made items for sale in the neighborhood shops. We saw everything from rag rugs, to jams and jellies, potholders, planters, and (the best) homemade pies. One of my favorite scrapbooking/card-marking supply stores is located in Shipshewana. After a delicious lunch, Marion and I went on a leisurely buggy ride, and our Amish guide gave us insights on the modest and simple Amish style of living.
I’ve written before how we utilize the Wal-Mart pickup service for our general pantry supplies. We have to be careful to pickup at the correct Wal-Mart in the areas we visit. I keep track by putting the address as a photo on my phone. I know there are easier ways, but this works for me.
I am an amateur card maker and can spend hours trying to get inspiration from others on line. I recently joined a group of ladies who trade monthly artist trading cards (ATCs)–a 3.5 x 2.5 card with any type of art. The timeline keeps me motivated and the cards I receive in return go in an album used for inspiration when constructing my own greeting cards. Below are three ATCs I created and traded in the month of May using rubber stamps, watercolor, and alcohol markers.
There are my Sunday Snapshots. For me, life is all about the journey, including the bumps in the road, the mountains to conquer, and valleys to navigate. It’s not all perfect and paved, but it is all beautiful.
