I he{art} you all!!!!

What an awesome day. Today is the last day for you to enter MM IDOLS and just maybe make your dreams come true!! So, if you are last minute, last minute... GO for it! This page was one of my initial entries and I still love it very much. and the guy on it for all eternity!!

I am so excited about the show and tell rak (read more here) that is going on! I really want to tell you how much I love ya'll and the fact that you are so "game" to have this fun with me. Thanks so much! I am still updating my list very faithfully!!

free smilies So, today I would love it if you can link me to some of your creations with my hearts! And I also want to know who threw their hat over the fence and entered the IDOLS... and if none of the above is you, then I want to know what's up for the weekend!!

We are going to Saskatoon for the weekend. Super excited to attend a CONNECTIONS MARRIAGE SEMINAR with Dr John Trent. YAY! I really believe each and every marriage needs seminars like this once in a while! So, now you know i will NOT be doing a post on Saturday... (so you can have a rest) check in here Sunday night late or definitely Monday. I love doing my blog. I really do.

A thought to leave you with for the weekend is the following: Isa 30: 18And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!

One of my favorite scriptures.
Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
Love and a kiss

Will be using those hearts of yours this weekend. I LOVE them all!!!

Hi Wilna
Looking forward to a ladies breakfast at church on Saturday. This is always a highlight. Other than that spending time with my family and God!

Hi Wilna!

I entered in the MM contest...can't believe it, though I only used old stuff because I haven't had time to scrap lately, but I DID it anyways! :)

So great that you're going to that seminar, so important to take care of your marriage and family.

Thanks for the scripture!

Hi Wilna,
Have a great time at your marriage seminar. I will be having family over this week-end for my oldest daughters 8th birthday on Saturday.
Enjoy your week-end and talk to you in blogland on Sunday.

Andrea said...

Hi Wilna! i used some of my hearts on this...

i did enter the MM's just so fun to try things, just to go for it :)

Have a very wonderful weekend...i'm sure it will be a blessing! Thank you for sharing the amazing scripture :)

Ingrid said...

Hi Wilna

It's an 'all girls' weekend in our house, since Fritz is on a church "mannekamp" (in English - a chuch men's weekend). It was a mission to keep the girls awake this afternoon, but I did, so hopefully they'll be fast asleep by 18:30/19:00. I plan to do some scrapping this evening (maybe with your hearts!), breakfast with my best friend and her sons 2morrow (sy's ook 'n mannekamp-weduwee). Home on Saturday afternoon & evening, church Sunday & lunch at my parents.
Fritz & I will be doing some more training soon, and hopefully start doing marriage counseling again in the 2nd half of the year. We took a break when the girls were babies, looking forward to start again. We have a passion to help other people to have a great marriage, like we do!

Melissa said...

I didn't mention I also entered the your urging!
It was fun.

Priya said...

Hi Wilna,

Have a super weekend. Still waiting for your hearts. My email id is
Eagerly waiting for your he(ART)s

Dale Anne said...

Enjoy the SEMINAR!
I did - I uploaded entries for MMIdol but I'm not holding my breath....I am pretty proud of the ones I uploaded, so if nothing comes of it I'll upload to my blog.
I have to wait until next week for a coloured ink cartridge to print off your hearts, so haven't done anything with them as yet.
Working on some of my own pages this weekend....

Sara said...

I unfortunately haven't used your hearts yet...hopefully this afternoon! I do indeed plan on taking the plunge and entering the MM Idol contest...we'll see how that goes!

christaw said...

i plan on working with your hearts this weekend and can't wait.

Anna-Marie Still said...

My hat is officially over the fence! (If you know whta I mean!)

KindredEsprit said...

Hi, Wilna!
Is there a chance you might still send out some more of your hearts? I guess I was too late. Have a great weekend in Saskatoon; I've never been, but I hear good things about it.

Hi Wilna

The Family came over for the week-end. We are just spending some special times together going to the Tea gardens and to Debengeni Waterfalls.

Have a great week-end

coRinne not connie said...

just a quiet weekend for me, scrapping and reading ... love the ideas people are coming up with, with your hearts....

thanks for the daily scripture - it really lightens my heart!

and yes i did enter MM... after all, why not?

Monikinha said...

Hi Wilna
Well... I threw my hat over the fence!! Now is wait, see and enjoy!!
And my work with your hearts isn't done yet... but I promise you that when it finished I'll show you!! This weekend is Mardi Gras (Carnival)... This holiday isn't my favorite... so I'll visit my father-in-law (who lives in another city), do some scrapbooking, read and relax!!

Have a great weekend(enjoy your seminar)!!!

Anonymous said...

haven't done anything with the hearts yet {other than stare at them because they are so beautiful}. I'm saving them for somethin' special ;).

Did not enter idols. Wanted to. seriously wanted to. too much on my plate right now. I'm hoping things slow up a bit by april and I can really get back into scrapping.

this weekend? haircuts for the boys, a little shopping for pants for the boys, registering for baseball for the spring. oh, and unpacking. oh, and some designing. ;)

hope the seminar is wonderful and you have a great weekend!!

merryredhed said...

Enjoy your weekend. I will be scrappin this weekend of course, working on a class sample I will be teaching next month at my LSS. Haven't decided what I will use my hearts for yet, saving them for something special.

Patti said...

Have a great time away! Can't wait to hear about the seminar:)

I enjoy reading your blog - lots of 'real life' inspiration here too:)

The Mad Aunt said...

Hi Wilna - It's the 17th and random fact about me I am in my second marriage and the most difficult thing in my life is being a step mother - I love it and I love the girls but am not accepted that way and it is hard as my step-dad was such an awesome example for me and we have a FANTASTIC relationship - maybe one day when the girls are older they will realise? Hope you have a GREAT weekend and enjoy the seminar!

Tammy said...

Hi Wilna!
Have a great weekend. For me, it is Chuckie Cheese for my neice's birthday party. The girls are excited. Haven't had a chance to use your hearts but just love them and plan to soon!

Mrs. Wizzle said...

Husband coming home from a trip. Yippee!

Theresa Tyree said...

Hi Wilna! Your scripture for the day made me cry. I really needed that. I love how you place God in the limelight of your blog. God bless you, so much. I have been busy the past few days. I was hired to teach at a large LSS in St. Louis. Exciting stuff! Have fun at your seminar. Yes, I threw in my hat for the MM Idol contest thanks to your inspiration. I was too late for the hearts, but they look delicious and would love to have them if you are so kind to oblige!
Love you,

Ingrid said...

Hi Wilna, it's Saturday 17th Feb. Just to let you know I visited your blog, again! Hope you're having a great weekend!
Love ingrid

Just Rhonda said...

Hello Wilna. Just stubled along to your blog today. I would LOVE to get some of your hearts. They are too cute!
And I entered the MM Idol too.... very scary for me to do. But I did it.

Anonymous said...

My birthday is 3-1. I will be 35. So I will see if I can keep up with leaving a post everyday.

Michelle M said...

Love your hearts, but didn't get in on that one, Didn't enter the mm idol either. I have been working on my daughters prom dress everynight this past week. Finally finished, altering the pattern, then pinning and cutting the fabric, so I'm taking a short break from it. I will start the actual stitching Monday. Prom is comming early this year, March 3.
I hope to find the time to check your blog daily and get the chance on the RAK.
Love your work!

Liz Ness said...

My poor little dude is starting to feel better (stomach bug), but I've been so busy, I haven't had time to play with the AWESOME hearts you sent (and thanks for those, by-the-way). But, we're having a stay-at-home-and-take-it-easy kind of day around here today. So that we can help the little guy mend. Health and hugs to you, Wilna!

Andrea said...

Hi Wilna! Hope you have having an amazing weekend :) Blessings to you!

The Mad Aunt said...

Hi Wilna

Its the 18th. How was the week-end? Just checking for some news.

Take care

Ingrid said...

Hi Wilna, it's Sunday the 18th. Can't wait to read all about your wonderful weekend. Hubby's back from his men's weekend, and I'm thrilled that he had a good time. Think he needed it. He's constantly bombarded with girls' stuff (me & our 2 lovely daughters), so I think he enjoyed the company of fellow Christian guys.
Love, ingrid

Kimberly White said...

Thanks for the verse and the nudge -- entered the mm idol contest! Hope you had a great weekend! Kim

longnecklady said...

Hi there! I just found your blog! Very excited. My favorite scripture is PS 46:10--be still and know that I am God. To me that just sums it all up.

Looking forward to reading your posts.

Come home soon, I totally miss you :)
