Happy Sunday :)

Isn't this little ensemble here precious? My sweet friend Jana sent me all of this for my birthday. Does she know me or what? There's a pink/brown heart shaped box with vintage postcards, old timecards and railroad cards, a silver tin dish, an old doily, a Maya road chipboard heart album, a cute little sparkly baby photo, and (the best thing) a sweet little birthday party invitation that was her DAD'S when he was little. She found it in an old box of her Grandma's things. Isn't that just the best? Please keep Jana's family in your prayers as they lost her father-in-law in a car accident this past week. :(

I am all packed and ready to go to my scrapbooking retreat this coming weekend! I'm early, but I always end up doing it the night before, so I wanted to get it done while I had plenty of time. Here's a photo of the cart that I take to the retreat. I love being able to just pull the cart up next to my seat and work. I don't have to dig for anything in a tote at all. Here are three more photos of the cart - Photo 2, Photo 3, and Photo 4. (These photos are from 6 months ago, not this retreat)

Making beef and chicken fajitas tonight with a packet of Colorado Spice Carne Adobado seasoning. I tasted some fajitas at Central Market the other day made with this spice and they were out of this world. Serving with whole wheat tortillas, lettuce, tomato, salsa, and cheddar cheese. Yum!

With a cart like that, I got dibs on sitting next to you if we ever get together. I can feel the inspiration justt oozing from those supplies!

Those are some fabulous goodies you got there from Jana... she's so sweet! I'm sad about her FIL...I'll be sure to leave her a message! How shocking!

Have a great time at your retreat! I'm sure it'll be a blast :)

Thanks for your prayers the past few days.....just wanted to let you know I'm back. I'm psysically & emotionally drained, but I'm back. I can't wait to watch the CHA videos you've posted soon. Love ya.

Wow, what a wonderful gift. That Jana is so sweet. I'm sorry to hear about her FIL & will keep her in my thoughts. Great cart, BTW. I have one just like it that I haven't put to good use for years -- so once again, dear Jen, you have inspired me!

Thank you for posting that photo of your organized retreat cart. I'll be putting that idea to good use.
What a fun gift package from your friend too.
