Our God Loves You!

The Lord your God is with you,he is mighty to save.He will take great delight in you,he will quiet you with his love,he will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

Hello my friends! I hope your week was a blessed one! I found out that I get to work at Baa Baa Sheepskins. So now I have 2 part time jobs!! Whatever it takes to get those bills paid! Do I get an AMEN??
I am sad though, since I have been working I haven't been reading as much as I used to. That bums me out, but I am finding time whenever I can steal a moment.
I hope you all have a great weekend. The scripture above is a gift to you-a reminder of how much our Lord loves us and cares about each one of us.
Blessings to you all!

Fall is finally here!!

Well, it is official! Fall is here. I am looking forward to it. The change of seasons that is, but not losing the hours of daylight. Whaaaaa!
I just came back from Women's Retreat 2008 at TLC. It was titled "Divine Design" all about transformation. It was a great theme! Something I am ready for in my life. I know God is going to show me some new things about myself and I am ready to follow where He leads.
It was also my birthday the 19th of September, which I spent out at the retreat, but my friends out there definitely made me feel special. I came to my cabin with a decorated bunk complete with baloons. (Thank you Leslie) presents from Kathy, Leslie and Heidi, and a beautiful card from Tracey that brought tears to my eyes. I love you all so very much. The only thing that was missing was the presence of my Best Friend Lucie. But I am looking forward to spending some time with her on Friday to make up for that!!
I wanted to let you know that I will be starting to have regular Open Crop opportunities at my house 2 times a week. But if there is more than 4 of us, we may join forces with my fellow sister consultant Kathy and any of her customers that want to join us, and we can use Trudy's workshop which has 6 big tables. I will let you all know when the times are set up.
Have a great day! Blessings to you all!

Great Weekend!

Hello ladies!
Well, the Scrapbooking Retreat was very productive. I completed 22 pages. Considering I woke up Saturday morning with a horrible migraine, I am pretty satisified with those numbers. That got me caught up with the ones that I was behind on. Now I feel motivated to keep going with the current photos that I have a hundred stacks of-ha!ha!
I did miss the fact that my Best Friend Lucie was not with me. It's just not the same when she is not with me at things like that. I am hoping to schedule a regular scrapbooking night two times a month. I will keep everyone posted, so you can come too!! As the weather gets colder and the outdoor activities slow down, that tends to be when the scrappers want to pull all those photos from the summer out to start working on...and that's okay by me!
We have lots of events coming up, including Croptoberfest, which will be November 15th. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! We have great gifts this year ladies
See you soon!

This is one movie I really want to see!

I hope it comes to our area!

Brookings Here I Come!!

Hello Eveyone!
Well, Officially tomorrow I start back to work. I will be working at my son's school doing yard duty. It will only be for 15.5 hours a week, but I am excited to be doing that until God brings something with more hours or more pay along.
Those of you who know me, know that I am a scrapbooking Consultant for Creative Memories. Scrapbooking is my first hobby and it is a business that I do and love. I love to show women how to bring out their creative sides even when they protest so much on how much it doesn't exist, but when they stand back and look at the finished product-they're hooked! I also am available to help people who want to just organize their photos. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! The ones that are in shoe boxes or in plastic bins in the garage. Creative Memories has a simple box that holds 2400 photos, and it only cost $35, plus you get my services for 3 hours where I come and help you arrange and organize them into the 12 categories that you create yourself. When you are finished, you feel so much better about knowing exactly where your photos are for each child, each event, etc., without having to look through tons of photo envelopes. If anyone is interested in this service, please let me know. Or if you just want to order the Power Sort Box (that's what we call it) I do have a web site listed on my blog) You can also call me at 707-725-2625 and I can answer any questions you have.
This next weekend I am fortunate to be going to a scrapbooking retreat up in Brookings Oregon. We have rented a beach house and we get to enjoy 3 wonderful days of relaxing and catching up on some long overdue scrapbooking. At least overdue on my part, my albums are quite behind.
I am so excited I have photos of our trip to Six Flags and I have more of my granddaughters that I have to get busy on.
I also just finished A Mile in My Flip Flops. I loved it!!! I am now reading Death of a Garage Sale Newbie by Sharon Dunn. You can see the picture and a link to her website on my blog as well.
Hope you all have a great week!
God's richest blessings**

Hello Ladies! Happy Hump Day! I love short weeks! I hope your labor day weekend was very restful or at least enjoyable and packed full of fun if that is how you preferred it.
We were able to go to our annual Church Family Camp. It was wonderful! My husband and I helped lead worship out there, which was an amazing thing to be apart of. We also did a concert on Sunday night that TOTALLY ROCKED FOR JESUS!!! We did a new song by Lincoln Brewster called "Today is the Day" I love it. You can download it now on itunes. Otherwise his new CD will be released on September 23rd. I have a picture of the new CD on my blog to advertise it because it is so ROCKIN!!
The newest book I am reading currently is called A Mile in My Flip Flops it is by author Melody Carlson. She is a very talented author who writes for women, teens and young children. She has a new book out called These Boots Weren't Made for Walking. It sounds really cute. You guys should check her out. This is the first book I have read of hers and I am definitely a fan from here on out!
I hope you ladies in the Chick Lit Book Club are enjoying Eyes of Elisha. I have talked to a few of you and the feedback is positive. I am looking forward to our meeting this Saturday.
Have a great week!
