I find the most awesome stuff...

I find the most awesome stuff on Facebook... Just reading people's posts, I only get to about 5 a day but I try to read what is at the top of my que... Today I found this on Gina K.'s status:

Every experience God gives us, every person He puts into our lives, is the perfect preparation for a future only He can see. ♥

This is soooo amazingly true! And i am not a particularly religious person. Well, I dont talk about God, but I do have faith and I just love that this was on her status. I just love it...

Now the best part about it, is that I am not even sure how I know Gina. Or if we have met or if she just friended me because we have lots of mutual friends? or if i met her at an event or what!??!? But I know I like her because she is a crafter and a stamper and we have 176 mutual friends. And how can she not be awesome if we have all that in common?!?

Amazing how people are brought into your life for some reason, and make a difference somehow. Sometimes without even trying or without ever knowing they did. Although she will know because I am going to post a message to her :)

OK, for some creativity...


I was part of a "steampunk hairclip swap" and Here are the goodies I got!



From Miss Vicky little clocks with words and glass pebbles


Jennifer Tsang just bought a ton of stuff and went to town! very fun!

From Erin Bassett. I just love that she used all that Tim Holtz goodness!

These are mine... I used tulle, 3 different black silk flowers, a treble clef paper clip, old buttons and a little gold heart cause I just love these girls!


Carly Breslin, Vicky's Daughter used rust colored flowers and some brass locks and keys. yum. she has made me beautiful clothes, check out her stuff.


Julie Haymaker Thompson is the first person I ever heard of Steampunk from and she inspired me for this swap. I loved her hair clips when they arrived and I love her! Even though we have never met in person, she has become and online friend and has left me many kind comments on my blog. Especially when i was going through such a hard time. I am so glad to be able to call her a friend!

This was such a fun swap and at the girls suggestion, We decided to make an extra one each for a little fundraiser for SBR. So please go to the Scrapbook Royalty Website and make a donation

theses hair clips are darling. You did good! Don't wear them and neither does anyone in my family, but I am getting the stamps!
