Scrapbook Retreat Eve

I know it's only 3 o'clock, but I can still refer to this as an "Eve", right?  Totally!  So, can I please tell you that I am super excited about the scrapbooking retreat I will be attending tomorrow with Jan???  Seriously, I can hardly wait!  This morning I was kind of worried about what exactly I am going to work on this weekend.  You see, funds are super low right now so I was thinking of all the things I need to buy for what I want to work on, and pictures to develop, and snacks and whatnot.  So, I was like "God, what should I do???"  Now, granted I don't normally pray about such trivial things as scrapbook supplies.  I guess I figure he's got more important stuff to take care of.  And, then I thought, holy cow, it's not like I don't already have pictures of a different event already printed out, and a TON of stuff in my rolling cart!
Then I heard the mailman walking up.  June started barking like a wild dog.  And then there was a knock.  Hmmmm, the mailman doesn't usually knock - ever.  Almost skeptically I opened the door, and he handed me a package!  June, of course, was wagging her tail by this point - I'm telling you there's no follow through!  What if it was an ax murderer????  Okay, back to the package.  From my Mom, so you know it's going to be fun..........The new book "Material Obsession 2"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  EEEEEEEEEk.  OMG, I was so surprised!  And, tucked inside the card was a check for me, with a note "to your creativity".  Can I please tell you that I started to cry right then and there.  It was such an answer to prayer, even a prayer I thought was a little ridiculous.  She even sent this super cute little denim and fabric dog kerchief for June!
I'm also looking forward to the drive up there.  It's definitely Fall here, and in between the evergreen trees the aspens and sycamores will be brightly colored and beautiful!  Hope you have a great weekend!
