Hi there! Wow convention is over. I did 300 swaps, 81 of another and 3 shoe box swaps so lots of new things. Penny and Tammy did a class THAT I HAD TO FIGURE OUT ON MY OWN lol. had to put that in there. It was amazing and easy to do. Those are two gals that make the convention between them and Sherrill. I'm not sure how convention would go. If you go there and don't do their classes your missing out on a lot of friendships, fun, and great projects. I thoroughly loved all the teachers this year. My favourite was Jacobs ladder for me that was a big challenge. But I got it finally thanks to Michelle she was super.
I met Jarmellia, Carol, Jennifer, and Jonella for new friends this year. Jennifer, Sue, Jonella and me went on a buggy ride and we had so many laughs. Little did we know the sign was up for just married and we got a lot of attention even if it was 1130 at nite. A beautiful way to end convention. Had to leave by 3 am which isn't fun.... well if I had packed earlier it would have been ok. But just have to fit it all in and poof it worked. Got home and back to getting things done here.
Painting and cleaning is for this week then scrapbooking and cards all the way.
Aug 10 is going to be a Christmas card class so hopefully that will go good.
Then I'm off to Nashville and when I get back I'm going to put pictures on here and do an all occasional card class.
Will see you all really soon   
Classes on every Tuesday night at 6:30. Bring a friend and you get a free class.

poem about thunder

A child's view of thunderstorms...I loved it!
A little girl walked to and from school daily.

Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming,
she made her daily trek to school.

As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter

would be frightened as she walked home from school.
She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother got into her car
and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.
As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.
More lighting followed quickly and with each,
the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother drew up beside the child,
she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty
because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today & every day
as you face the storms that come your way!
"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."
—Louisa May Alcott

Poem from Elenor

Hello Pumpkin
From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!!

A woman was asked by a coworker,
'What is it like to be a Christian?'

She replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed..
Then He carves you a new smiling face and
puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'

This was passed on to me by another pumpkin.
Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

I'm very happy you have come to look at my blog.  Google adwords has underlined single words in my post DON'T CLICK ON THEM. If you click on them they will take you off my blog.
I will have to figure out how to get rid of them. Thanks, Carolyn

scrapbooking weekends are just stamping , cards and fun with Berry Trifle

Sherrill is testing out the dessert she made.
Berry Triffle
Use 1 1/2 angel food cake use large pieces put half
in the bottom put a vanilla pudding over it (try not to let it set)
Use 1 pkg of dream whip
then layer blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
then layer cake, pudding and dreamwhip again.
Then finish off with all the berries again.
Not only is it pretty but very good.... so the gals say 

When you leave home hubby is always on your mind
so use the banana phone and call home......
