a little of this & that... & big news

So much to get done today... I am having a garage sale tomorrow... actually a friend who lives in an out-of-the-way area is using my garage for her garage sale... but of course I will have plenty to contribute to it. It is a one-day thing... I had one last year for 1-day from 8-2:30 & did really good! Here's hoping for the same this year.

Here is another little notebook I gave as a gift... the SU DSP looks so good with that SU set, "Season of Friendship"... my friend really liked it... at least she said she did... *Ü* !
I have come to realize I have a paper addiction... when I am in a craft store or looking through my SU caddy... my heart starts racing when I am looking at the paper... if I had unlimited resources... I would have a room full of paper. I really want to get in on the SU DSP special for this month... buy 3 packs get 1 free... that is so tempting... maybe if the garage sale goes good?????
Now for my news about my "project"... a few weeks ago I "happened" to come across Women to Women Sharing Jesus... what I read touched me so I left a comment. Shortly thereafter, Diane, the creator of WTW contacted me about how she would love for me to write a devotional for WTW. Anyway, to make a short story shorter... today is the day of my debut as guest writer on WTW. I am so honored that she thought enough of my blog ramblings to ask me to do this. I just pray that the words I have written will touch someone that needs whatever God has for them through this... I give God all the glory for His leading in this "project".

If you will please do me a favor... go to Women to Women Sharing Jesus... read my post... leave a comment if you like... spread the news about WTW, tell at least 2 other people... you never know who it might touch.

Thanks for stopping... have a blessed day... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Carin, your papercrafted notebook is so pretty! And thank you for writing the inspiring devotional for WTW--I'm going to read and re-read it, and then be sure to comment on the site. God bless & keep you!

I was so moved by your testimony on Women to Women that I decided I needed to go see what your blog was all about. I was not disappointed! Thank you for your words of wisdom and your honesty.
Thank you for reminding me to thank God for the gifts, blessings and even those "tough" situations!
