Monday Morn

Ooooh... it was no fun getting up this morning!
3 days at the coast and my blood got thin. This Joburg winter thing is cold. Can't believe I was running around with a T-shirt on the last 3 days!
Umhlanga was such fun! Stayed with my sweet friend Patti who opened her brand new shop Scrap 'n Patch this weekend. She had such special ladies coming in to do my mini album classes. Was such fun to see people I recognise from previous classes I've done in Umhlanga.
Also got to teach at Scrapbook Junction. The ladies laugh as I try and stand in the same spot where I can see the sea through the window.
I so enjoy sharing with everyone I meet through scrapbooking.
Started reading Cathy Z's new book - all I can say is YES!! I totally get it, and I feel so encouraged to scrapbook my moments.
Trying to get this photo thing right....

Packing my Bags!

Getting ready to travel...
So excited to be at the opening of a new shop, Scrap 'n Patch in Umhlanga. I'll be teaching a new little spiral album designed with AMM papers. Love the new album - chipboard covers and spiral bound.
I'm also teaching at Scrapbook Junction again. Two classes, using BBP mono mini and MM papers. The idea is based on the album my dear friend Kelli Collins made for Scrapbooking for Hope last year.
I'll post photos when I get back.


Going through some REALLY old emails I had saved. Found this one from my Mom from almost exactly a year ago. It was so encouraging. It's been a rough week!

You can tell how strong you are by what it takes to discourage you! Sometimes our discouragement has nothing to do with what God does or doesn't do and everything to do with our mistaken assumptions of how we think thingsshould turn out. When we try to second-guess God, we're usually wrong, because He says, "I don't think the way you think." God always has a plan-and His timing is perfect!

Been really busy this week and it's only Wednesday! Taught classes Monday night, Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning. In between finalising last bits for my classes in Durban.

Trying to keep warm - it's freezing here!

Friends forever

Over the past while I've realised the importance of having friends, but more importantly maintaining friendships. I don't always have time to be in touch all the time. Yesterday I meant with a primary school friend who I grew up with. Haven't see her in about 20 years. Wow! It was good to catch up.

To have a friend is to be a friend...

On this day

So here it is.
My own blog.
Not sure about this all just yet.
I'm hoping to put down some thoughts.
My personal thoughts, scrapbooking thoughts, the SFH event.
Time to share a little bit of me.
