You are Invited!

I complete this page a few minutes ago and couldn't wait to share it! The story about the page: yesterday I bought some stuff at Starbucks and they put it in a paper bag with the most amazing designs on it. So, I cut it out and scanned it and used in on this page. I am so happy how it turned out. You can view the whole page (with the products I used) HERE.

To all my dear American friends: happy and blessed thanksgiving tomorrow and have a wonderful rest of the week. Take a break and relax!

In our home we are in full swing with the homeschooling again. Getting back into routine is a big priority for me now. The girls are doing fantastic and we are eating up schoolwork like a silkworm eats mulberry leaves. It's a good thing!
Last but not least... I am in a super generous mood: Leave me a comment and I will post you a beautiful box of Making Memories Christmas goodies: papers and some embellishments. You will squeal with delight when you open the box.

This is how God sees you in Christ: Luke 1:27 (message) Good morning! You're beautiful with God's beauty, Beautiful inside and out! God be with you. That's such good news!


Peace to you!

Hi Wilna. I came here because Helen (aka Scrap Addict) suggested I ask you for help on how to upload a power point presentation to my blogspot blog. But now I'm here... WOW. What a beautiful page! And what an awesome blog.
Anyway, if you do know how and you're willing to share it with me please email me at artemis dot jamaica at gmail dot com. Thanks so much.
