Get Crafty!

Get Crafty! Project Demonstration

As if I didn’t already have enough reasons to love my school, SEBTS just had to give me one more reason to be absolutely smitten with them.

Each month the Women’s Life Center holds a Connecting Point meeting for a time of fellowship and fun for all Southeastern ladies. Each meeting has a different theme and last months theme was called “Get Crafty”. For this meeting different ladies were asked to host a table where they would bring a craft to showcase for anyone who was interested. The showcased crafts varied from jewelry making to sewing, from cooking to….yes…of course SCRAPBOOKING!  And to my surprise I was asked to host this table and showcase one of my projects.

To say that I was excited is an understatement. It should be obvious from my lack of blog posts that I haven’t really had an opportunity to do anything crafty in a while, so when I was asked to do a scrapbook demonstration I pounced on the opportunity. Thankfully my one year anniversary was right around the corner so I was able to tie the two events together and create two nice little 8 1/2 x 11″ layouts for my hubby.

I was so blessed to have several ladies choose my craft out of all the ones being offered and I had a great time teaching them my project. Here are some pictures from the event, courtesy of Kristel.

Our big move to Wake Forest, North Carolina takes place in exactly five days! (Crazy, I know!)

Although I am ecstatic to move into our very first “real home” and start grad school, the whole move is rather bitter sweet.

On one hand I am excited that God has blessed us with the opportunity to move to a new place and start a new chapter in our lives, but on the other hand I’m a nervous wreck because this will be the first time that I’ve ever lived away from my family.

Things sure are going to be different, but I’m definitely trying to look on the bright side of things. Although I”m almost positive that I will suffer from some sort of separation anxiety I know that God is going take care of us throughout all of our triumphs and struggles.

So regardless of whether or not I’m scared out of my mind, North Carolina will have to be ready for the Goenaga’s…because we’re on our way!  

Here are some pictures from our last visit to Wake Forest in November of 2008. It’s thrilling to think that I’ll be living here in less than a week!
