I went to visit my sister near Greenville, SC. She suggested that we scrapbook some. And that we did. We really had a good time and spent hours just talking. She is such a sweet sister. I don't deserve such a sweet sister - who truly cares about me and encourages me. She is so spiritually minded and always reminds me to count ALL my blessings - which are so many!
We made a trip to Hobby Lobby but we restrained ourselves and didn't buy a ton there. I purchased a Smash Book with all the "fixings" for my Jennie's daughter, Amy, my niece. She already loves scrapping so I think she'll really enjoy her Smash Book. What a dear, sweet niece she is!
Jennie and I also talked long and hard about the upcoming missions trip that I will be joining her family for - June 21st through July 3rd - at an Indian reservation in Montana. I am SO excited! It is really basic living out there... there is NO Starbucks. I don't know how I'll survive - but maybe I will just learn how really spoiled I am! Really! I am getting more excited and so want my life to be more than JUST about ME!
I will post a few layouts that I've created recently. I've been relaxed and only worried that I like the layouts and that I"m having fun. That's it. How freeing that has been!
Here's a picture of my sweet sister, Jennie!
