prep work


my happy mess this weekend
watching documentaries
chopping up thrifted sweaters
preparing for this coming weekend
when i'll be at craft weekend!
i'm so thrilled to help out meg & kimberlee
and to have becky waiting for me at the airport
and to hug ashley and little one.
finally meeting friends face to face?!
what gifts!
(with all those sweaters (for crafts), i'm guessing just bringing a carry-on isn't going to cut it. :)

i know it won't hit me until i'm planted on the plane. that's how i roll. busy at home until i sit down on that seat and have a moment to take in what's about to happen. pre-trip is always the time when i wish i didn't have to sleep so i could get more done, so i could read one more chapter with the kids. but i'm reminded of ann's words that life is not an emergency. he created me with that need for rest. and who am i to argue with that?

i don't know if i'll have to a chance to post again before i go. i plan on using that airport time to work on the blog redesign....so, you may be surprised the next time you pop over. :)

hope your week is full of His wonderful surprises!

*edited to add: i have a bit of an afghan-blitz going on over in the shop.  all the same price.  easy for you.  easy for me!  {i ♥ granny chic!}
