Swirly Bird Christmas

StampinUp Swirly Bird Christmas card made by Betti Jotzke-Torrier

Another beautiful swap card made by Betti Jotzke-Torrier.  Isn’t this card stunning?!  The silver foil Swirly Scribble Thinlit piece actually swings back and forth.

Olson Reunion windmills-1

We recently had our Olson family reunion and I thought some of you might enjoy seeing what the beautiful Iowa country side looked like on our way to the reunion.  You can tell from this picture that Iowa is windy and we don’t always have a ton of cars on the road.

Olson Reunion-danish windmill

This is the Danish Windmill in Elk Horn, Iowa.  My Grandma was Danish and I remember coming here many times as a kid. This is the only authentic (built in Denmark), working windmill in the USA.

Here’s some of the cousins getting John Deere Gator rides around the farm.  As you can tell, there is a big age difference between the cousins!  It was a really fun day seeing all my Dad’s siblings, and their kids and grandkids.

Hope you’re having a good week!


Beth 🙂
