The Christian race is one filled with battles, uphill struggles, falls and distractions but Jesus runs with us and therefore it is also filled with peace, joy, growth, and the assurance that it will end and there will be a prize.

I subscribe to a daily online devotion called Good Morning Girls and I loved this thought today.  I thought you might also!

Before we left for Florida, I got a perm.  My hair is so, so straight and the humidity is not a good thing for straight, straight hair.  It was the best thing I did for Florida weather and the bonus of all of this is that Jon has told me 6 or 7 times how much he loves it,  You can't get better than that can you?  What do you think?

I went to a demo at the Owl and Pussy Cat Scrapbooking Store on Wednesday.  It was fun and I learned a few new tips that I am sharing below.
  • When spritzing your paper it always curls.  If you spritz the back first it helps to keep it from curling as much.
  • On the larger 6x6 stamps, ink the stamp and lay your paper on top of the inked stamp,.  Then when lifting up your stamped image, hold finger on corner to lift it and your won't smear it.
  • If you use water color paper, the colors won't be as intense as if they would be if you use smooth paper.  She calls smooth paper Brayer paper. 
  • She used a glass mat when she used her craft knife.  You get a much more crisp cut.  I am going to ask her more about it tomorrow when I  take a class.
That's it for today!  Have a great day!!!
