Wow, this weekend was so amazing. What a sweet spirit of the Lord was present. Our Faith 365 event in Breaux Bridge was this weekend. We had so many surprises and a few glitches but everything was perfect.
Nana Campana with My Paper Tree House came to speak and she taught a mini book... It was a journey to get here... She almost missed her flight... they let her board 5 minutes before the plane was to depart, she was not finished with her class sample because her product did not come in but I had ordered all she was missing not even knowing what she was teaching. I wanted to teach a mini book but my mojo was lost.....it was because she had put together the most amazing class... God is Good and all the ladies loved it! In the picture above you see flowers. They are from Nanas husband. He sent them to her because it was the first time they were apart since they were married and the first time she spoke! The butterfly page and the 2 page is the front and back cover to her mini book. Isn't it beautiful.... Everything had a meaning and it was part of her teaching. Just amazing!
Me with Donna and her daughter Ashleigh. Such sweet girls. I love them!
Me, Nana and my BFF Heather. She is going to be a momma....I am so excited for her it has been a long journey for her and her husband. But so worth it when you are holding your little miracle!
Roomies.... I always get a hotel room and I never know who God will give me for a roomie....This time Nana stayed and Jaime and Marty. Love these girls. It was there first time to the event and they left knowing everyone and began a friendship that will last a lifetime. God is Good!
We took this photo Sunday afternoon... Some of our girls are missing but they are stamped on our hearts... Beautiful women!!!
Deanna, Christie and Jamie! You girls are always the life of the party and I love that about you. You keep me smiling and laughing all weekend long. Love you all!
Mr. Grace shopping in Scrapbooks and More. Our very own store for the weekend!
My husband came and played his guitar and sang a little serenade. This in itself is a miracle....We begged and pleaded last event and he did not. Everything has a time and season.
Matt came and taught a photography and editing class...He shared a testimony of his life and his daughter. It has been an amazing journey for him and his wife. They even took a stroll around the town of Breaux Bridge to take pictures and have individual instruction on the camera you brought to use! It was awesome when everyone came back into the event, they had great pictures of the sites around town... Stay tuned to Matt and Stacys blog....We had a contest at the event. We had to take pictures of what would become a texture for photos.....We are posting them on Matts blog and you will have to vote for your favorite!!!! How fun is that!
My dear Mrs. Lynette shared how we need to be captured by the love of Jesus! Tears and laughter filled the room for an amazing time with the Lord. She is such an inspiration and I am so thankful she is a part of my life and yours. I can't believe in the last 3 months... she just started scrapping and she has completed 2 beautiful books of her new grand baby. She is hooked!
I taught a wall hanging class. I picked these hangers up about 6 months ago.... it was a perfect addition to the event! We made several different fabric flowers... just like the ones Prima makes. We created a Flower pot full of blooms and used the I Top tool and the Chip Art tools by Melody Ross... Thank you to Artsy Findings for sending us some awesome product for prizes and demos. We made cards, played with the Gypsy and just enjoyed inspiring each other!
Sunday came and flew by. I think I blinked and it was all over but to me it is just the beginning. God has some huge blessings in store for all of us! My journey over the past 6 years has been full of twists and turn. My dreams and my hearts desire is right in front of me. I am so thankful to my new friends and to the ones who have been right by my side since the beginning! God has truly blessed me.
Our next event is in October.... Details will be posted soon so come back for a visit later this week! We will have big news to share! All my love to you and thank you all so much for encouraging and inspiring everyday!
