Journey to Jesus – He is Risen

My station during the EGGstravaganza was the tomb. I got to share the news that Jesus was risen! He was alive again! 

Jesus Has Risen
28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”> and the other Mary<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> went to look at the tomb.
There was a violent earthquake,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> for an angel<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”> of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”> and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(G)”> The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(H)”> for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(I)”> Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(J)”>There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.Suddenly Jesus met them.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(K)”> “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(L)”> to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

I hope that you have a blessed day. Happy Easter! 
Blessings,

Journey to Jesus – Waiting

*Full disclosure, this one isn’t necessarily scriptural….just my own Holy Week confession.*

I hate waiting. I can’t stand it. Waiting for company to come for dinner. Test results to be published. Software to download. You name it I hate it. So, imagine being Jesus’ friends and disciples. It’s Saturday, yesterday he was crucified and you’ve just buried him. If you trust in his teaching then you know that on Sunday He will be risen from the dead, but on Saturday you impatiently wait. If it was me, I’d spend all day Saturday fidgeting, cleaning, not being able to sit still, and probably annoying those around me.

I would probably have to cook, or take a walk, or the biblical equivalent of going for a run to let off steam. I would have been a mess that day. I would have baked bread for all of my neighbors, cleaned my house from floor to ceiling, cooked enough food for an army, and still would not be able to calm my self down.

I am a terrible waiter, but it’s Saturday…and Sunday is coming!

Blessings,
Megan

Journey to Jesus – Good Friday

Matthew 27:32-50

New International Version (NIV)

The Crucifixion of Jesus<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.9em; font-weight: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”>

32 As they were going out,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”> they met a man from Cyrene,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> 33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”).<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”> 34 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall;<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”> but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(G)”> 36 And sitting down, they kept watch<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(H)”> over him there. 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is jesus, the king of the jews.
38 Two rebels were crucified with him,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(I)”> one on his right and one on his left. 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(J)”> 40 and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(K)”> save yourself!<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(L)”> Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(M)”> 41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. 42 “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel!<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(N)”> Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(O)”> in him. 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(P)”> now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” 44 In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

The Death of Jesus<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.9em; font-weight: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(Q)”>

45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(R)”> came over all the land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,<span class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[a]”>[a] lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).<span class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[b]”>[b]<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(S)”>
47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”
48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(T)”> put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

His friend denied him, His Father turned his back on him. He was beaten, mocked, and hung on a cross. He took on the sins of the world, and died so that we could be made new in Him. The veil was torn, man was no longer separated from God. Jesus bridges the gap…..He was placed in a tomb, and the tomb was sealed. Pilate placed his guards at the tomb to keep watch. 

It’s Friday…..but Sunday is coming! 

Blessings,
Megan

Journey To Jesus – The Last Supper and the Praying in the Garden

Matthew 26:17-19, 26-28

The Last Supper<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”><span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”><span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: normal; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”>

17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread,<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”>
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”> is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.

26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”> and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup,<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”> and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the<span class="footnote" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[a]”>[a] covenant,<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
That night, in the upper room Jesus and his disciples shared a meal. Jesus washed their feet (I didn’t include that scripture here), taking on the role of servant he washed their feet, then broke bread with them. This was their final meal with their friend and master, Jesus knew that soon he’d be betrayed by one of them. 

Matthew 26: 36-40

Gethsemane

36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”> along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”>
39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”> be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”>
40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me <span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(G)”>for one hour?” he asked Peter.


I have to be honest and tell you that I don’t think I’d be any better than the disciples. It was late, and they were tired. I’d assume that the garden was quiet, peaceful even….it would take a lot for me to keep my eyes open and not doze off. It wasn’t long before the soldiers showed up in the garden with Judas, to take Jesus away. That night he was put on trial, mocked, and beaten. 

I can’t imagine witnessing the events of that night, and the next day. I can’t imagine the hurt and the heartbreak that his friends were feeling as the events unfolded. 

Stop back tomorrow! 

Blessings,

Journey to Jesus – The Triumphal Entry

On Saturday our church hosted it’s first annual Easter EGGstravaganza. When the children and their families entered the gym, they started on a Journey for Jesus. Their Journey began with Palm Sunday and the triumphal entry. From there they traveled along (from room to room) hearing the story of Jesus. From the Triumphal entry they went to The Last Supper, The Garden of Gethsemane, The Cross, The Tomb, and The ABC’s of salvation. I was at the tomb. I got to tell the children and their families that Jesus was risen from the dead, the tomb was empty, He is alive just as he said! When they completed their Journey they exited into an Easter carnival full of games, crafts, and lots and lots…I mean LOTS of candy!

With this week being Holy Week (if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know this is my favorite week) I’d like to recount the Journey to find Jesus with you.

I’m a day late with this one, but here it is anyway!

Palm Sunday – The Triumphal Entry

This is where Jesus’ final week began. He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey as crowds of people greeted him, waving palm branches and shouting “Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

New International Version (NIV)Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King21 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives,<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”This took place to fulfill<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> what was spoken through the prophet:“Say to Daughter Zion,    ‘See, your king comes to you,gentle and riding on a donkey,    and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”<span class="footnote" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[a]”>[a]<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”>The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks<span class="crossreference" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”> on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,“Hosanna<span class="footnote" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[b]”>[b] to the Son of David!”“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”<span class="footnote" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[c]”>[c]“Hosanna<span class="footnote" style="font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[d]”>[d] in the highest heaven!”

7 Quick Takes: 7/19/13

Happy Friday friends! I hope you had a wonderful week thus far! I had a few days off this week and am heading into the office this morning, so I’m going to get to the takes…..here goes nothin’

1.) I finally did it! I finished my quilt top! It took a while, but the hard part is finally over….now I can focus on doing the back. For the back, I’ll be using up all of my leftover fabrics and doing a patchwork for the back….but the point is, the front is FINALLY. FINISHED!!

Here is some proof!

I still have to do some embroidery on a few books, add a few more quotes to the empty spaces, but other than that….DONE! I REALLY, Really, really hope that you can tell at a glance that it is supposed to be a bookshelf…………..? 
2.) I have really enjoyed having a few days off of work this week. Mom and I made jam, and pickles, and pies, and all kinds of other goodies! We have some wild black raspberries that grow in our yard, that we picked and made into about 4 pints of jam, and we still have lots more to pick!
3.) I have crossed a few books off of my summer reading list……but I’ve also added a few! I love finding great bargains, and if I can find bargain books, that is even better. On Monday I went up to Birch Run Outlets and was able to find a couple books for just a dollar each. So, while I’ve made progress on the reading list, the list grows each time I find a new book to read! Seems counter intuitive, but I like it that way! 
4.) Camp Meeting starts on Sunday, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. Church is held on our district campground. Our church Choir and Orchestra leads worship every year for the opening service of Camp Meeting, and this year is no different. We will be doing some of our best a biggest numbers from the year, along with lots of congregational worship songs. I love Camp Meeting, mostly because we don’t camp! We drive down for the services on the nights that we can, and that’s the way I like it. 
5.) Seriously though, this is a week that is pretty big in our denomination. Camp Meeting is like a week-long revival. We get amazing speakers, fabulous music, and you can really feel God at work during the services. We meet in a pole-barn turned tabernacle, in lawn chairs or folding chairs (pews if you want the front few rows.) and in true Nazarene fashion, there is usually something food related following a service. 
6.) Many will receive a call to ministry this week. Many will be saved this week. Many more will be Sanctified this week. In fact that is where I was sanctified. Saved in VBS as a child, Sanctified at Camp Meeting as a teen. God gave me all of Himself, as undeserving as I was…and years later I gave all of myself to God. Camp Meeting is life changing, and I expect this year to be no different. Please pray for us as we enter into this week, not just for me but for each and every person that steps foot on the campground this week, and in the weeks to come. God is doing big things! 
7.) I’m linking up at Conversion Diary, and on the off chance that Jen may read this, I’d like to say thank you! Thank you for hosting Quick Takes each week. I don’t even remember now how I found your blog, if it was through another blogger, or if I stumbled across it one day. I do remember the first time I added my link to Quick Takes though, and I was nervous as all get out, because number one, I’m not Catholic and that scared me. I don’t know what I thought, maybe I was afraid I’d be kicked out or something, I don’t know, that’s just me….I get nervous for no reason. Number two, I was afraid I’d never have anything to say, but I’m writing a couple times a week now, I’m actually keeping up this blog! That’s something I never thought would happen. Thank you for helping my find my voice! I have found so many wonderful blogs to read because of your weekly link-ups, and I’m not worried about that whole me-not-being-Catholic-thing, that’s the beauty of the body of Christ isn’t it?! So Jen, if you happen to read my little blog, THANK YOU! 
Have an awesome weekend everyone!

Blessings, 

Megan 

7 Quick Takes: 6/28/13

Once again, let me wish you all a very happy Friday! I have no plans today, none, nada, zero! I am free! This may not seem like much, but let me tell you, it doesn’t happen very often and when it does I tend to enjoy it! So, without further ado, let’s get to the takes!

1.) From Friday to Monday, I was in Indianapolis, Indiana attending the 28th General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene. It was amazing! The city, the thousands of Nazarenes from around the world, the worship services, the Missionaries, all of it! I loved hearing all of the languages as we recited The Lord’s Prayer! All of the voices and languages mingling with each other as we sang! General Assembly happens every four years, and this year happened to be an election year. Two of our General Superintendents retired this year, and our delegates elected two new Generals! It is such a fun election process, and I was able to watch the entire Assembly (that I wasn’t there for in person) via live stream on the General Church website! I can’t wait ’til 2017, and look forward to what these next four years hold for the Church!

2.) Monday, we headed home…by way of Shipshewanna. I visited a few quilt shops in town, and had to leave them both before doing any serious damage to my bank account! It was fabric galore, and I may have drooled just a bit! While in town, we ended up eating lunch at the Blue Gate Restaurant. It was awesome! The Blue Gate also houses a theater, where they are currently performing Half Stitched the Musical. Half Stitched is based off of the book, The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club. I LOVED this book! I would love to take more time and go down to see the show, wander around those shops a little longer, and take a buggy ride! I can’t wait to get back to Shipshewanna! 
3.) Wednesday was spent with Grandma. Gram didn’t want to be home that day, and I can’t say I blame her. It was June 26th, four years ago, that Grandpa was called home to be with the Lord. His battle with cancer was finally over. He passed at home, Mom was with him that day, and I was with Gram. It was pretty hard on her that day, and honestly it still is pretty hard for us. I don’t do this often, but on Wednesday it seemed like all of my stress, and frustration from the past few weeks, and memories of Gramps all came flooding in at once and I ended up a crying, emotional mess during orchestra rehearsal (of course, I was able to pass it off as being blessed by the Holy Spirit, it WAS a pretty powerful song). 
4.) Okay, I need some advice….I will spare you all of the details, but I’ve been having lots of stomach issues lately, and I think I may be on to something. I started thinking of how my eating habits have changed, and all I could come up with is that in the last two weeks I’ve gone from eating absolutely NO Greek yogurt (or yogurt of any kind for that matter,) to eating it every day. Is it possible that this could mess with my digestive system, or throw it out of whack?? Any help would be appreciated!!
5.) I’m currently reading While We Were Reading Downton Abbey, I’m not very far into it, but I highly recommend it! It is a great mix of characters and personalities, seriousness and levity. It makes for a very fun read! Check it out, you won’t regret it! 
6.) I’m hoping to work on my quilt some more this weekend. I’d like to at least add the rest of the panels by July! It was (is) on my summer bucket list, and I’m really hoping to have it done soon! If I do add to it, I’ll try and get some pictures up! Wish me luck! 
7.) I’m linking up with Jen like I do! Head on over to Conversion Diary and check out all of the other Quick Takes! Sorry for cheating, and using that as take number 7, it’s been a really slow week, and I honestly couldn’t come up with anything else worth while!
Enjoy your weekend! 
Blessings, 

Somos Sagrados

Somos Sagrados…..We Are Holiness

I just got home from a weekend in Indianapolis attending the 28th General Assembly for the Church of the Nazarene, and let me tell you….it was amazing! 20,000 Nazarene clergy and laypeople from around the globe converged on Indy, for the quadrennial meeting of the denominational leaders, delegates, and guests (like myself!).

My favorite part of the whole time I spent down there was the worship services, being able to worship the Lord surrounded by so many different languages, hearing voices lifted in prayer in more languages and dialects than I can count, and the fact that there is something so powerful connecting each and every one of us!

One of my very favorite speakers is General Superintendent, Dr. J.K. Warrick. Dr. Warrick was assigned the topic: We Are Holiness. Guys, this message was amazing! Not only did it completely embody the whole focus of the Nazarene Church, but it was presented in a way that was so accessible to all of us. It was a message on salvation, and sanctification. Heart Holiness. God wants all of us, not just what we are willing to give, he wants everything we have, everything that we are. He wants our plans, our lives, ALL.OF.US. He wants us to surrender everything to Him so that we can be filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit!

If we surrender to Him, there will be nothing that can hold us back from the in-filling of the Spirit! Guys! This is what it’s all about! We are HOLINESS! God wants us to have entire sanctification, heart holiness…this is what the Nazarene Church is about, what we were founded on, THIS…THIS RIGHT HERE is what we believe!!!

WE ARE HOLINESS!!! SOMOS SAGRADOS!!

Blessings all,
Megan

We Remember

Happy Memorial Day to you all!

Today we pay tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and we say thank you to those still fighting today. My heart breaks for those that lost a loved one to war, and also for those whose loved ones come home forever changed. PTSD has become a huge problem in this country, and one that is often overlooked in the wake of soldiers returning home.

Please allow me to say “Thank You”. Thanks for your service and dedication to this country! God bless you all!

Blessings to you on this Memorial Day, 
Megan Marie

7 Quick Takes: 5/24/13

Happy Friday!! It is so good to be home! I know I said that last week, but it’s been a glorious week at home! I was able to get back to work, and things are semi-normal around here. So, lets get to it shall we?

We shall,

1.) Please pray for my sweet mama, she and dad spent about 6 1/2 hours in the ER on Saturday after just getting home from vacation. Turns out mom has an enlarged/enflamed gall bladder, and it causes her some pretty severe pain. We think that dairy is her trigger food, so the ice cream we had Saturday night may be what sent her to the hospital. She also has some gall stones that they can’t really do much about…but praise the Lord she’s gone a week without an attack!

2.) My prayers go out to the folks in Oklahoma. What devastation, and heartbreak as they try to locate loved ones, and pick up the pieces. I can’t even begin to imagine what the mix of emotions must be. We were out to dinner Monday night, our whole church staff that is, and one of our pastors was on the phone trying to contact his family….in Moore Oklahoma. All through dinner and dessert he kept calling to find out how they are doing, they are doing fine, their homes are okay and they are safe. A friend of mine has a brother in law and sister in law in Moore, and they lost everything they own. That shows you how unpredictable these storms can be, and how powerful they are…but our God is greater. He will provide, He can comfort, and He gives peace.

3.) One of the best parts of my job, is getting in contact with parents to let them know that their children have received scholarships for church camp. The parents are always SO SO SO excited to finally send their kids to camp, and it really just makes my day! I e-mailed them all today to let them know, and even though I didn’t have anything to do with the approval of their applications, I’ve been getting thank you e-mails in return, from some crazy happy people! It makes my day to know that these kids get to go to camp, and their parents don’t have to worry about the financial burden. I seriously LOVE my job!

4.) I found some waste canvas this week at the craft store and let me tell you, I was pretty excited! Do you know what this means?! I can embroider on my quilt now! You know I’m doing the bookshelf quilt…..? Well, now I can embroider titles, flowers, golden snitch(es), sorting hats, Mockingjays, a colonial house, a french flag….the possibilities are endless, but I also just increased my workload. It’s totally worth it!

5.) I’m running out of things to say, so here is another picture from my trip to Disney

This is me with Lady Tremain, Drizella, and Anastasia. They are better known as Cinderella’s step mother and step sisters. Let me tell you, they are freakin’ hilarious! They interact so well with the crowd. If you are planning a trip to Disney and you find yourself in Magic Kingdom make it a point to meet these three. They are wonderful, you will have so much fun interacting with them!

6.) In one of my posts I talked about how I was going to use a Smash Book as my vacation scrapbook, remember?? No, that’s okay. I talked about it, and that is what I ended up doing. I even took the book with me so I could work on it on the road. I also took it into the park with me and used it as an autograph book. It worked out great. I was able to just add my pictures when I got home, and now I have a complete scrapbook. I’ll do a post on it soon, I promise!

7.) Another picture:

I seriously LOVE the Smash Book, I was able to work on it in the car. Yes, IN. THE. CAR! I didn’t do any of the writing in the car, but adding maps, and brochures, and other odds and ends was really easy to do in the car….and the hotel….and the boardwalk….and Downtown Disney….you get the idea. It travels well, and you can work on it wherever and whenever you like! I even went back to the craft store and bought another one for my next trip! 
Go see Jen @ Conversion Diary for more QT’s, and enjoy your weekend!!
Blessings, 
Megan
