Time Flies When You're Having Fun...

Wow-where has this year gone?! It has flown for sure since I am seeing things like full moons, witches on brooms, pumpkins and such. 2008 has been a BUSY but BLESSED year for me.
I started a new job in February--working for a local church as office administrator. They have quite a large bulletin and newsletter and I feel as if I am being paid to scrapbook--since basically I make all the info "fit" and "look pretty"! I am still a paper and glue-stick kind of gal but this job has led me into a little digital scrapbooking for sure!

Spring was spent planning and preparing for my WEDDING! Yes, I was a June bride! After 7 1/2 years, my honey and I tied the knot. We had a very, very small private wedding in our new sanctuary with family and friends( just those that took part in the service). God Bless the Broken Road was a duet sung for us and spoke volumes. We then took photos down on the beach and the weather couldn't have been better--considering the day started out with thunderstorms complete with hail. My matron of honor, Theresa, even had a TREE come down in her yard! But God is good and all was perfect.

Fall found me finally taking TWO MORE BIG STEPS--first, instead of just taking stamping and scrapbook classes, I decided to try my hand at TEACHING them! My first class was a huge success (thanks to my good friend Theresa lending a helping hand) and my "groupies" are anxiously awaiting the next one. (I will post pics of the cards we made as soon as the camera batteries recharge!) The second step came yesterday as I signed up to be a CLOSE TO MY HEART CONSULTANT! For those of you who don't know---Close to My Heart (CTMH) is a stamp and scrapbook company. They have beautiful papers and embellishments as well as clear acrylic stamps. Lots of other tools and gadgets--as well as organizational supplies (go Flybabies! ; ) I love their products and can't wait to start sharing these wonderful tools!

Christmas is fast approching. Have YOU been NAUGHTY or NICE?! Hope Santa will be good to you but, before that, have a wonderful THANKSGIVING and don't forget TO COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS! Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping! Blessings, Sharon
ps/scroll down to see some of my favorite projects---um, forgive the "huge" size--it's not that I am that proud---I am learning (slowly!) how to do this blog thing! Lol!
