Fun stuff in the mail.

This is one of those odds and ends posts...just lots of little things I wanted to tell you about.. so here goes.

Today, I thought I'd share some fun stuff that came in the mail. I the "Embellish" book by Scrapbook Trends in the mail today with the two layouts I have in this issue and a box of goodies. I'm dog sitting in Omaha today, so when I'm finished blogging , I'm planning on curling up with this, and having a little "look see". lol I just flipped through quickly yesterday when I opened the box and was really impressed with what I saw.

That's my sweet mama in the pink layout.
Mom spent her first night bad at home and she said she slept well, so that 's good. I think she is doing a little better each day. Thankyou all for asking about her and praying for mean so much to me ( and too her).
Today since I'm in Omaha and close to Precious Treasures, I found my way over and chatted with Amy a bit ,..........and then took in all the new goodies she's been getting in. Everytime I go there, I'm so impressed with the amount , and diversity of product she carries! I 'll post the photos I took in there on my blog tomorrow. If you're ever near the Outlet Mall in Gretna..definatly check out her store, you certainly wont be disapointed!
