Much needed retreat

I just returned from a "much needed retreat" at Big Rock Ranch in Eustace, TX. It was so fun. I worked on Kaylee's 1st grade album - yes, I'm actually that far behind - shame on me!! Cindy went with me and we had our nails done, got massages, ate some great food, and actually got some pages done, too.

I'm also working on some projects for another book for Design Originals. I'm so very excited about it and can't wait to start on them. I also have been making the cards for the "All About Cards" kids class that will be in November at the Scrapbook Pad. I'm so blessed and just can't believe that I'm actually getting to "work" doing what I love - so it doesn't even seem like "work". I get so much satisfaction out of seeing a student at one of my classes when they finish their project and are proud of what they made. I can't imagine how it will feel when I see some of my projects actually printed in a published book! It just doesn't seem real. I just thank the Lord for bringing these opportunities my way and hope that I can make the best of them and do a good job.

The kids are doing well in school and they both looked so cute for their school pictures! I can't wait to get the pictures back. Zachary got a "Caught BEE-ing Good" sticker Tuesday for using his manners - WOW! It's amazing, but I guess sometimes they actually do listen and learn even when we think they don't :) I was so very proud of him!

That's about all for now. Friday night some of us are getting together and doing the "Crop for a Cure" crop at the Scrapbook Pad. It's an all nighter - I wonder if I'll actually make it that long - time will tell. Thanks for checking in and I hope you are having a wonderful week!
