Wow, a month has flown by since my last Monday Mail Memo post! How about a little catch up today!
First, there's been an abundance of happy mail. (1) Two DO-ER t-shirts I ordered from a great company called MakeMeAvailable. (2) A sweet note & gift, which I'll share more about later, from a new friend. Kelley is a registered dietician offering in-person and online services . . . and we are currently collaborating on an exciting new event that will be launching later this week! (3) A sweet card from my friend Darlene. (4) Some gelli plates and combs that Susie (owner of Scrappin' Goodtime) sent so I could prepare for last week's classes. (5) A couple of boxes of labels (also for last week's classes) and a new book, all from Amazon. (6) A hand-delivered box of chocolates from Lithuania, brought over by employees for the symposium put on by the company where Robbie is CFO/COO.
Another t-shirt also came in the mail - I won this one as part of a giveaway in the My Embraced Life Facebook group. It was so beautifully packaged!
Next, I've enjoyed teaching quite a few classes, sometimes wearing my new DO-ER shirt!
When I first met Jana Kennedy-Spicer (of Sweet To The Soul) and saw her Bible pages filled with creative lettering and doodles, I knew I wanted to collaborate on some illustrated Bible journaling classes. We taught two workshops at Personal Scrapbook earlier this month. It was so much FUN to co-teach and to see the enthusiasm for the Creative Lettering and Bible Journaling techniques we shared along with devotionals on mentoring and hospitality.
Scrappin' Goodtime in Corsicana and taught two workshops incorporating devotionals and a variety of painting techniques. It's such a joy to spend time in the Word with creative women!
And finally, there have been a couple of great family outings. I arranged a horseback ride for Mama's Mother's Day gift. It was a gorgeous day and we had a blast! This was the first time Mama's ever ridden a horse!
This past weekend we headed down to Southeast Texas to see my twin nieces in their dance recital. Paige was so lovely in her ballet, lyrical and tap dances, and Laurie was amazing in the clogging number! We were also able to spend time with my sister, brother-in-law, and Pun'kin (niece) and take my Daddy (who was also there to see the dance recital) out to eat for Father's Day. It was a really nice trip!
It's been a busy but FUN and ACTIVE time around here. Watch this space over the next few days for exciting news on what I'll be doing in the next few months!!
