So to get ready for the day I needed to collect everything I would need, only my craft room was taken over with quilt projects so it was time to straighten up first!
I'm so excited! Tomorrow is going to be so much fun! Stay tuned for pictures of not only my pages I get done but also all the fun we have throughout the day! Happy Scrappin!

By seeking God first in the morning we are focusing on our Creator, the one who made us, formed us and created us in His image and in His likeness.

Last week I started following Courtney's 5 Week Challenge. In week 1 I took the challenge to write down everything I ate. I was pretty successful and it showed me why I have gained 20 lbs in these last two years. This week is a time management challenge.
Courtney over at Women Living Well is challenging us to write out a list of what we need to get done this week . Being so complex as I am I definitely need a schedule to follow or I’d never get anything done! I have found when I sit down on Sunday evenings and write down everything that needs to be accomplished for the week I am more calm throughout my days. One person who has helped me in the area of schedule making is Flylady. Check out her site here:

As I was going in I noticed my cat lounging among the flowers and thought how nice of him to pose for me for me like that. I’m just learning the art of photography and the more I experiment with the functions on my camera the more fun it gets. At the present I keep my camera setting on P (program mode) I’m learning about aperture (F-stop) because it’s what makes that one item in focus and all the rest blurry giving the subject that “popped-high definition” look. The way I remember it is; the lower the F-stop number the fewer things in focus. So I set my F-stop at 4.4 and got Merlin in focus and St. Francis blurred.
