weekend stuff...

Just got back from teaching a class a little while ago. About once every month or so, I have a group of foster girls that I do a class with. Even though they have had some pretty horrific things happen in their lives, they are amazingly positive, and they know they are going to make their lives better. I feel so lucky to have this opportunity to help them see not everyone in the world is going to hurt them. I think they are truly amazing girls with a huge potential.

I've been scrapping every night, can't post them though because I have plans for them. Wish me luck;) I'm gonna leave you with another picture from our trip to the beach. Love the way some of these turned out.


  1. I had no idea you do this! It makes me proud to be friends with you, and it makes me jealous of the girls who get to see you every month. You're such a special person!

    Also, I want you to know that I still love the table snack container from the January retreat- the one you stamped and flowered and put rice krispie treats in. I refill it with candy or snacks when it gets low and it cheers up my living room all the time. As does your couch. And your end table. Man, I am so lucky to have you in my life!!! :)

    I miss you and Bre, I'm hoping we could get together May 3rd or 4th maybe?? Let me know!

  2. I'm so excited NOT to see your lo's! That means you are doing something fun with them & cannot share, and for that i'm SO happy for you!

    i too didn't know that you did this. these girls are so very lucky to have your influence in their lives!

    can't wait to here what fun things are going on w/ those los! :)

  3. I told you that picture of Bre was awesome! Glad your class went well this morning!

    And, yes, I, too, am proud that you are doing something really special with your layouts! Can't wait to see them, though!
