Last Two...

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a really good Monday. Mine was really busy but quite fruitful so that was nice. Last night was my first Deacons meeting at church. I think I'm going to like being part of this group. Deacons are all about the spiritual pulse of the church so we do things such as visit those in the hospital/nursing home, send cards, and pray for those that are sick or just plain would like prayer. All things that I enjoy doing. And, they are a fun, diverse group of people!

Today, because my time was filled with other things yesterday, I'm going to show you the last notepad holder and note holder that I made for Christmas. The notepad holder that I'm showing you today was one that I made for my niece. I love the paper and how the placement worked with the butterfly and flower...perfect! The colors are a bit off but pink and yellow are always a favorite of mine.

The note holder is made with some PTI patterned paper and frankly, I really like this one too. The soothing yellow and brown of this are just so nice to look at and that scripture...one of my favorites. I still have three of the note holders sitting in my craft room but literally just this moment I decided who they were going to go to. Yay! I don't like to make stuff and then have them just sit so I'm thrilled to have thought of who they would be perfect for!

Today is shaping up to be a pretty busy one too so I should probably get scooting. For some reason I keep thinking of this...Joy For The Journey. It is the sentiment on one of the note holders that I showed you earlier. I think I'm going to dig into my Bible and see what it tells me about joy in my journey.

Have a wonderful day you guys!Smiley from millan.net
