1st of May!

Yesterday I got an awesome box of goodies in the mail from Making Memories. This awesome new publication BABY LOVE was one of the treats. And even better (for me) is that I did a few projects for them for this book. So TODAY I am giving one of the book away as a RAK... just leave me a comment!

By the way... have you seen the awesome new Making Memories website? Go and check it out.

Also, check out freehand scraps for the project I did for them. : ) I will post some pictures on my blog tomorrow.


Today I am finishing up another book that's probably one of my very favorite creative things of all time. I couldn't sleep last night I was so excited. I can't wait to show you. I am working with the "the Romantic" collection form Scrap In Style. *ETA* this is one page that I created both digitally and conventional. I will be loading them all in my gallery on scrap In Style. There is 8 pages in total.

off to take the kids to school.
Smiles and love

Hi Wilna!
That little books looks great! Would love to have it.
By the way - really enjoyed your class at Scrap Etc - I came home and used my little bind-it-all and put my tags and envelopes together in a little book - LOVE IT!
Also - I've decided I'm gonna "lift" your Starbucks cup idea - gonna print paper for Christmas with holiday words and cover the cup and then fill it with hot chocolate mix and wrap it all up. I think that would be a cute little way to do a small gift for my coworkers.

I think Kerry Lynn had you in mind, when she was creating 'the Romantic' line. It's fabulous!!!

Once again, thankyou for always fresh, INSPO.

Dear Wilna,

I have never left a comment before but I can not keep quiet today. Love to scrapbook myself and like the way you scrap. Like to see what you are busy with, but what makes me keep on going back to your blog is your spiritual input. I love the song "Keep counting on God" That is were we get our help from. He is the source of creativity and we can get our ideas from Him cause they are new every morning!!!

Be Blessed, and keep holding on to Him Wilna.

Greetings

Pamela Jane said...

Thanks for offering this delightful new book. So enjoyed your class at Scrap Etc, and now your blog.

Dear Wilna,

This is my first comment ever on your blog, even though I'm a daily visitor and have been feeling compelled for some time now to express my gratitude and admiration to and of you as a person.

Obviously I absolutely adore your creations, but most of all I adore your amazing relationship with our Heavenly Father and the unconditional love that is so tangible even via this non-tangible means being the online world.

You have been wonderful inspiration to me for the last few months since I discovered "your he{art}". May God bless you for sharing it with me and letting me in just a little bitty and in so doing making me strive to seek a more meaningful deeper relationship with Jesus. Your spirit glows like the brightest star in the pitchblack Karoo night and I've never even met you face to face but I am convinced you are a true earthly angel and the glow will be even more awesome in person. For me, you are the embodiment of Matthew 5:13-16. Don't ever find a bowl to hide your light under!

God has blessed you with so much talent and kindness and love and warmth and you are a darling for wanting to share it with others :)If you still have the RAK going, please add my name to your list - thank you very much!

I'll keep coming back! {hugs}
Love, Bella xx

PS. Thanks for helping me to discover BibleGateway!!! It's just what I need when the devil lurks up behind me at work!

Oops, I forgot to ask, I've always wondered (yes, I'm terribly inquisitive by nature :)) - are you Afrikaans?
