In Overload

The count down to Scrap~N~on the River and we are trying to figure out the last little details. Moma has her hands full taken care of our dad. I am working at the Red Cross as the Excutive Director planning for hurricane season. I now God is going to guide me. If I would just STOP trying to help Him. God needs no help!

I can't wait to meet Lisa Bearnson in person. On the phone she seems to be the sweetist down to earth person. When she gets to Natchez, my plan is to show her TRUE SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY! Maybe she will want to come back yearly?

I am praying that I will be able to go to CHA in Orlando FL. This is the largest craft and hobby show in America. My plan is to go and see what the latest and greatest, because everything goes in cycles. Crafts are no different. Scrap~N~on the River has been a huge success for Natchez. As of now we have 60 rooms for 3 nights. I would love to develop another type convention to bring more people to town. At this time I have been told there in no help to do that. If anyone has any answers please let me know. Anyone wanting to advertise at Scrap~N~on the River please let me know.

Lisa Bearnson will be comfirmed

Hey Girls
I talked to Lisa Bearnson today and she will be here on Thursday, July 23. I am so excited. Lisa is working on designing some classes and prepairing for Scrap~N~on the River. God has truly blessed us by Lisa coming to the convention. She is so sweet and is looking forward to seeing Natchez and all of us Southern Belle Scrapbookers. We are going to show Lisa that Scrap~N~on the River Girls just want to have fun!

Red Cross

As most of you know I am working at the Adams County Red Cross as the Exective Dir. I actully wear many hats. To start with I am the bookkeeper, fundraiser, PR person, messege communitcater for the different classes taught, etc. And in the midest of all this I am on call in case of a disaster. A disaster can be anything from hurricanes, storms, tornadoes, to families being burned out of their homes. So being the RED CROSS is a blessing and a curse at the same time. I love to help people and it hurts me to see them loose everything they have. I try to give encourgement and give them a little hope for tomorrow than I go home and deal with what I have done that day. I go to my garden or flower bed and Thank God that He help me deal with what I had to do that day. Some times I go get on my husbands lawnmower and just ride and cut grass. He says it takes me so long but I am just listening to God talk to me. I believe that God puts you in places to do His work and gives us a brain to make choices. Please pray for me as I try to do the best job I can at the Red Cross and get ready for Scrap~N~on the River. Scrap~N~on the River is right around the corner. It is going to be the best one yet. Moma, Maecee and I cant wait to see everyone. Yes, Slick will be there to keep everyone lauging. He has some things to raffle. He took ceramics this year in college and enjoyed it so much. He has grown up so much this year.
