Yesterday, Stephanie allowed me to publish her layout on my blog. I asked her if she had any element suggestions she might like to see created, and she asked me if I could possibly make ‘writing in sand’ or some writing OF sand – so I decided to experiment and managed to make the latter. I hope you enjoy it! I love hearing your suggestions and ideas – and as you can see, sometimes it pays off to let me know!
Whew! It’s been a blur lately. I’ve been on a totally creative streak and have been trying to ‘capture it on (digi) paper’ before this phase is over. I’ve got a big poster to design and In-Laws coming for a 10 day visit, so you ladies all know how this changes the picture. A ton of preperations – I’m even sorting out a few cupboards and closets, as they need to be done anyways.
I’ve had opportunity to catch up to my good friend Becky – it has been three weeks since we had a coffee, and she’s looking so radiant and her belly is sweeeeeeeeeeelling! We had a whip-creamy coffee and caught up on our lives.
Miles and I won't have to eat for another week, as we were invited to dinner last night at our dear friends Italia and John’s for some good Italian food. She laid on a banquet that would be the rival of any 5 star restaurant. Thank you for having us over Italia and John – next time, our place!

Here are some random thoughts and scriptures I’d like to share with you:
Sorrow is a fruit:
God does not make it grow on limbs too weak to bear it.
- Victor Hugo
Set your troubled heart at rest. Trust in God always, trust also in me. There are many dwelling places in my Father’s house; if it were not so I would have told you; for I am going there on purpose to prepare a place for you.
- John 14:1-2
There’s always a burst of sunshine,
After a shower of rain,
There’s always a time of happiness
After a time of pain;
May the guardian angel watch you
With vigil not in vain,
For the great outdoors is waiting
To welcome you again.
*****I thought the following two websites were of interest:
Tech Crunch has an intersting article on a new technology called DimP, which is Direct Manipulation Video. It basically is the concept you could move parts of a video by using your mouse. Check it HERE.
This second one, perhaps could earn you some income. I hear of so many talented people out there (Valinda, I think of your daughter Cristy right away!) through this site! If you have a talent or something to teach you will want to check this out:
Make money teaching people. Really. Sclipo allows all users to share their knowledge - but this time with a monetary twist. For example, viewers are able to tip the author of a video via Paypal, and you can teach personal classes - live - to people anywhere on the globe via webcam, and charge for it. Just click HERE.
