Hello my friend Wilna!
I love the way God has gifted you. His creativity flows out of those talented fingers and ends up being a blessing to so many people. I love how all of your scrapbooking expresses your love for God (and your family and friends) and your passion to know Him more... even in your MMIDOL pages!
Yup, it's me...I'll wave to you tomorrow at about 3:30 p.m.

Ok, can I send you my photos and then you make me the murals??? I have tried the inspiration thing but no go. You can send them home with Maryna when she comes to visit.....which I hope will be soon because you both deserve to have some real coffee in real cups in real coffee shops together for a while.
