Well, it finally got here. The day I had been waiting for, for a long time. I was going to finally see my movie, Nights in Rodanthe. It bother me that the critics got it only 2 stars. I would have given it 5 out of 5 stars. I read the book 2 times and cried. I have went to the movie, knowing what was going to happen and cried. It may be a chick flick, but take your hubby or boyfriend with you. My hubby did not know anything about the book and loved the movie. He said he will take me again to see it. GREAT!

If you read in my previous write up about the filming of it in Rodanthe you will understand why I HAD TO GO SEE THE MOVIE. It is a must see. If anyone does go see it, let me know what you thought about it.

I had a great birthday!!! Thanks to my hubby, some family and friends that went with us and thanks to Nicholas Sparks for writing such a great book. Love them all.

Can't wait to see what Sparks has next in line for me.

God bless,

Inspiration does exist ~
but it must find you working

A New Way to Scrapbook

I found this Word Book at the Beach Memories at the Outer Banks, NC, last week.
It took some extra time to finish this book.
But I think it was worth all the extra thinking it took.
I just wanted to share with you my newest find.

Attempt It

It doesn't matter how many say it cannot be done or how many people have tried it before;
it's important to realize that whatever you're doing,
it's your first attempt at it.

Make Your Day Bright

Make your day bright by thinking right
Don't start your day out
by supposing that trouble is just ahead
but start your day out with a prayer instead
and make it a prayer of Thanks Giving
for what God had done.
And if you want to be happy and free,
keep your eyes on Jesus and not on Me.
Some people think that they are so smart,
but they don't have Jesus livin' in their heart.
Just as sure as day is day and night is night,
with Jesus we have to keep our hearts right!

So here is the rest of my Iris Folding projects so far.
I am sure there will be more to come later.
Hope you enjoy looking at them, as much as I enjoy making them.

The Lady in the Hat

Here is the "tricky" Iris Folding I did tonight.
The top of the hat, has a purple hologram paper for the Iris of the project.
This is so habit forming.
Is there a IFA out there?

God's Gift

You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

Here is the other butterfly

Here is the other butterfly I made to go with the first one.
I like to see two or more butterflies together.
They look like they have no cares in the world.
Just enjoying what the Lord has provided for them.
Why can't we be like them?

Butterfly Iris Folding

Here is my second project. I think I could get hooked on doing Iris Folding.

My First Iris Folding Project

~ My first try to do Iris Folding~

What Is Iris Folding?
Iris folding is a fun and easy paper folding technique that can be used to make greeting cards, on scrapbook pages, or designs can be framed and hung on a wall.
The texture and depth that you feel when handling an iris folded greeting card or scrapbook page is the best part.
For more information:


Grow old with me!
The best is yet to come.

While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is about.

Why do we have wrinkles?

Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.

Nights In Rodanthe

My husband and I were in town when this movie was being filmed.
Very exciting to know that we were there.
I can not wait for this movie to be shown. The movie is Nights of Rodanthe based on the same title book by Nicholas Sparks. I have read this book twice so far. It is about a doctor that begins a life-altering romance that starts when he stops at an inn on his way to see his estranged son. Richard Gere and Diana Lane star in this movie.

The house above is a picture I took on our way to Ocracoke Island, NC. The house is named Serendipity. It is in the subdivision near Pea Island. This is my idea home. It is a 6 bedroom, 4.5 bathrooms and ocean front. Northermost house on the oceanfront on Hatteras Island, with unobstructed ocean views and sound views from upper floors. Located in Mirlo Beach. Wow, now that is a beach house or should I say a Beach Castle.

In the movie will be a scene of wild horses running on the beach. My husband and I have adopted 3 wild horses from the Outer Banks (OBX), in Ocracoke Island. Which part of the movie is filmed, also.

The opening date for the movie is September 26th. Oh by the way, that is my birthdate. So I have informing my family and friends that I want a dinner party and a movie night. So, I will be there. I CAN'T WAIT.

~If any of you catch the movie, let me know what you think about it and the Outer Banks, NC~

This Message Rocks

This is my newest craft.
It is a rock that I found at our Campground in NC.
I paint it, write scripture on it and leave for someone else to read.
How great to surprise someone with a promise from God.

Count me in
