Hope...are you scrapping yours?

All of us have storms in our lives...and one way or another we get through them.  Hope always has a place somewhere in that storm. 

We should leave in our scrapbooking a legacy of where we found that hope.  Even small notes of how hope got us through our storm. 

How about you?  In this new year, we hope for no storms, but they come. Come share with us where your hope lies!  How would you or do you add that strength to your albums?

Book Review: The Goodness of God

Another hobby of mine is reading.  When I get the time, I love to read!  Some time ago I was given the opportunity to read The Goodness of God, by Randy Alcorn.  It is a short read but reminds us of truths we often forget about our God.  He is good, He loves us and we need to trust and praise Him.  If you doubt, or need some encouragement, pick up this little book.  It is great to have around just as a reminder, especially on THOSE days! :)  It would be a good gift for someone as well.  I have used it a bit in counseling someone who needed to be encouraged.

I was given the opportunity to read this book for FREE at

So glad I organized!

Today, I was sewing on a Christmas gift and needed a very small safety pin to pull some elastic.  I have moved in the last few months and was not looking forward to trying to find one that small.  Then, I remembered that we used to have safety pins in our embellishments.  I was very glad I have organized my embellishments into drawers sorted by color.  I easily found the pins and hadn't wasted hardly any time from my project!  I was so glad I had taken the time about a year ago to organize my stash! 

It also was very cool that I could use some of my scrapbooking items on other projects!  Has this ever happened to you?  If so, leave a comment and tell me about it!

Back to Christmas prep!
