Hi there!

YAY! I did it! i went to the gym yesterday and i exercised! and i am going back today too! Jaco got me THESE super cute running shoes... makes me want to go just to wear them. hee-hee. i am not usually so shallow! As i am still doing rehabilitation on my knee, i am on a light exercise program but it's still 100% more than i did last year. and while i do the stretches and exercises, i realise how much better the "medial collateral ligament" is getting.

I saw this today on Ali's blog and i just realise again what a GENIUS this woman is. What inspires me about her is she is constantly creating. always coming up with new ideas. this mini book is just amazing. so cleverly thought out. and at the moment these In my minds' eye (MME) products are my very favorite.

I got some good news yesterday: a little toot of sorts (ok, 3 in fact): Making Memories contacted me and said my work "looks amazing" in their new book! i am taking such a big breath... phewww! and they asked me if i am interested in doing another project for their next book. Ummm, let me think... YES, thank you!! so, after i wrote the email i couldn't stop smiling. Thanks MM!!

I got an email from a very sweet lady, asking me if i would be interested to be on her DT (it's an online store) and i am so thrilled. i love sweet and small stuff and i think this one is starting out like that but i am sure it will not end that way! this is the first Design Team offer i have ever had! i will be putting some stuff of it on my blog... but it will be probably later this month.
the 3rd excitement is that i am going to be featured as a guest teacher on so all you south african ladies, you all must join me!! i am going to design a class and then present it for 2 weeks on the site. I confirmed with Claire that the class will be open to ANYONE around the world!! This is going to be one of the most fun things i have ever done! i think the class involves a private chat room and a private gallery! details will be available here or on designersnotes.

Jaku said to me last night that i am having a very "busy year" for someone without a scrapbook agenda so far! LOL! he is the sweetest thing! it's not that i don't have an agenda for my scrapbook stuff, just a heart that asked God to lead me and show me. There is one thing in particular that i am praying about right now. a really big dream.

Prov 16: 3Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

have a wonderful day!
