YAY! I *heart* you all!!

for playing this past 2 weeks! Thanks so much for all the comments. You know what is totally awesome? I really got to know you and it feels as if you are my friends. Which you are, by the way. As I would go through the comments, I would notice so-and-so have not visited me yet. And then later on, I would smile when I see the comment. I don't just blog. This thing is part of my he{ART} and soul. I do it with heart and soul. I hope you feel it and see it too. If you know me in real life, you would know that if I could, I would have send each and everyone of you faithful blog readers a show and tell book. But I can't... ok... maybe I will gather all my nerve and ask MM someday! until then, keep on visiting me and chatting with me.

I have been creative today and I made a layout for the MM Blog that I am so, so, so happy with. And then I got the most amazing news that I almost played the pirate of panzan. Seriously fantastic. I just could not keep quiet any longer. Will tell you all about it later this week as soon as I can. I mean, the best part of a secret is to let everybody know you have a secret??!! What I can say is that the tiger post is true. And God is faithful.

Ok... so drum roll... in the end there was 20 names that went into the hat (for the show and tell book) that commented at least 10 times or more... and Jaku drew Clair's name. I give you my word that I did this fair and square!! Ha-ha! And I tell you, this dear lovely left the most comments by far (not because I said so, but she wanted to!!) Way to go Clair!!

Stick around! You know I love to give things away! So for today at least you can rest and relax a little. I am taking my friend Zizzilee and her son, Markus to the airport in Saskatoon today and I will be out the whole day. I will visit my favorite LLS, Just scrap it, and of course have lunch at Calories! YAY!! Bye for now, and know that I love you all very much. 1 Cor 14:1 says Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it—because it does. I take this word to heart. It's the truth.

Love and a kiss
Wilna

I cannot keep a secret! Well, I can but I don't like to! I want to share it with everyone ASAP! SO I can't wait to hear your news. Congrats to Clair!!! And because I have enjoyed your blog and because I'm starting to teach classes at Hobby Lobby AND because I'm starting an interest group on scrapbooking at church - I have decided to blog again! I'm working on getting it up again now. I did the CUTEST page yesterday so come check me out later!

Hi Wilna! I am happy to be back in touch with reality now (was gone for the last 9 days on vacation). I had a great time but missed some of my favorite blogs, so now will spend time today doing laundry and reading posts from the weeks gone by. Hmmm a secret - oh do tell soon!

Morning Wilna

Peek-a-boo! With two kids at home it's sure to happen today.
I am also lucky! - won an album from www.designersnotes.com. Am thinking of a really special topic to use it for....
Lesedi village is just near to "de wildt cheetah" reserve, at the harties' dam - really scenic. Enjoy Claire & thanks
