I'm giving my website/blog a make over soon. It's exciting, but scary at the same time. There are a lot of things that I am planning to change up, but now I'm looking for input from you – my viewers. Please be specific. Think of how the page is set up when you first arrive…the menu bar…what you see along the side… And feel free to email me at [email protected] if you don't want to leave a comment below.

Ahhhh…the days when I first starting blogging. I was learning so much so fast!

I thought I'd share with you one of my first posts when I realized I was watermarking my photos with the wrong website address. hahaha! Thankfully it was one of my first posts.

…I'm just gonna post this one with my updated bunnies photo. I'm new to this blog world, so please forgive me. It's stampyourartout.COM. 🙂 Stamp Your Art Out! ~Rachel

I shared these bunnies back on February 4, 2013 – more than 4-1/2 years ago! Wow!! Crazy that I've been blogging that long!

 

Photography was more of a struggle for me, too. (Although, I STILL think I could improve in this area.)
I relied on the sun for all my photos!

This cup was featured in my February 26, 2013 post.

I shared this strange "fish kisses" card on February 13, 2013. Gotta love all the shadows.

And I used to wait for a decent sunny day and photograph all my scrapbook pages at once out on my back deck. This was a layout I shared in my March 7, 2013 post.

 

My kiddos were much littler when I first starting blogging. If you've been with me that long you've seen them grow and get through all sorts of things – the challenges of friendship, their big owies, new experiences, moving from grade to grade, their sports, birthday parties, their trips and travel experiences, and more.

Luke loved finding this yellow caterpillar on August 20, 2013. Little did we know until later that it could have stung him and hurt him.

Here is Nick blowing out his birthday candle back in October 2013. (My other passion is decorating cakes for my kids' birthdays.)

And here was a scrapbook page I shared on February 21, 2013 of their fun in Disney World. That was a dream trip come true.

 

You've also seen me remodel my classroom and craft/office spaces.

Luke and Nick had a sleepover with some friends in early October 2013 when the new carpet was installed in my classroom area. (And to this day they still love to have sleepovers down there.)

And on March 3, 2016 I blogged about my fabulous new craftroom/office space.

 

Of course I could share so much more (my Stampin' Up! trips and celebrations, favorite projects that I've shared, exciting opportunities that I've been lucky to be a part of, etc.), but then I would need to go through all my past 4-1/2 years of blogging to recall everything.

Just know that I have LOVED the support, the comments, the encouragement, the private emails with "warm fuzzies" and the ideas you have shared with me throughout the years. Thank you so much for tuning in to what I blog about. I want to continue to share my tips, ideas, tricks, techniques, layouts, and just my overall passion of paper crafting with the you. And I hope that you will stay with me when my new website design is complete.

Thanks for visiting today.
