Alaska Trip


Hello Everyone! I just want to say that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth just yet....I've just been enjoying some time with family in Alaska.  Thankfully Blogger was so kind as to work well while I was gone.
We had a wonderful time in Alaska visiting family and checking out some of the wonderful places there around Anchorage.  The trip along the Alaska highway from Whitehorse was incredible as well.  We visited the Alaska Zoo, Beluga Point (and we did see some whales off in the distance) and then to Flattop Mountain where the above pic is from.  With me is my wonderful husband and to the far left of the pic against the horizon is Mt McKinley.  I know it looks like a cloud, but I promise that it's a mountain.
Some changes are coming on my blog, I am having to say goodbye to designing for From the Heart Stamps. I truly love Faith's images, but I'm going to have to cut back on my fun to focus on my family and homeschooling (going to be three of them this fall).  I hope to have time to craft and I'll be sharing it here with you as I always do, but it might be a bit more sparatic.  Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement I so love all your comments and e-mails!
Well, I'll leave you with some more pics of beautiful Alaska! (although the first pic is Kluane Lake in Yukon, Canada)

Beautiful pictures, glad you all had a wonderful vacation there. Looks like you will be a bit busy home schooling. I'm sure it will all work out and you will still have some time to craft here and there...
Take care Jennifer....

My hubby would be so jealous. He's been to Anchorage and further north to work on the pipeline, but he wants to go back to actually visit and sight see. Looks like you got to see some amazing sights. I'll miss your FTHS projects, but totally understand the time demands to homeschool. I'll be keeping up with you. :-) Hugs!

What a wonderful place to vacation. So happy for you. As for crafting vs. homeschool, sometimes we say no to something good, to say yes to something better. ~ Abby
