This week has been crazy and emotional (that seems to be a trend lately).
My heart has been heavy for many reasons.
So, on a lighter note, I thought I would show you what I did this past weekend.
I spent the weekend in this lovely house.
With eleven other lovely ladies.
It was my first craft retreat and it was well, lovely!
I packed up all my crafty stuff.
Joel thought I was moving out, but I couldn't leave anything behind.
I had several projects in mind to work on.
My main goal for the weekend was to work on Cora's scrapbook.
I never started one for her.
I have wanted to finish her book before Baby Macs arrival.
But every time I would start looking at pictures, it was too hard.
I couldn't do it.
I would just cry.
This weekend forced me to print of pictures and get started.
I know that I will be so thankful to have this.
I was reminded of how many precious memories we have with our sweet Cora.
I was a little worried about going on this retreat.
I hadn't been away from Joel since Cora died.
I didn't know if it would be too emotional to work on Cora's book all weekend.
And not to mention I was nine-months pregnant.
Joel had just pointed out to me how loudly I had started snoring at night.
I was a little worried about that too!
But my friends graciously let me have the one-person room.
That way I wouldn't have to bother anyone!!
While I was scrapbooking, the other girls were working on so many fun things.
Like these coasters.
And these drawing notebooks.
Wrapping presents and listening to Christmas music.
And even working on blog books and Christmas cards.
I worked on a few other projects too, like this one.
I'll tell you more about it soon.
And Cora's book...
It isn't done, but I got a good start on it.
Maybe I will share that with you sometime too.
