Winner, lovely surprises, menus and prayer requests

Remember the organising your craft contest I announced last Friday?

Well, the winner is Laura from Laura Williams' Musings for her excellent post on using plastic sleeves to organise your scrapping.

I have already emailed Laura her gift code to spend R100 in my store so she can get something to help organise or improve her life!

Well done, Laura :)

Lovely surprises
I finished writing and putting together a new e-course to help you organise your home, step-by-step, for 12 weeks.

I haven't launched it yet because I'm waiting for January so imagine what a lovely surprise I got when someone already bought it from the store.

That's when you know something is needed, isn't it?

Menu Plan Monday
Well, we are still on holiday in Port Elizabeth.

The weather messed us around yesterday because there is a thing here called Art-in-the-Park. It's in St. Georges Park next to the cricket grounds where our boys will play the West Indies today. It is lovely and crafty because everything has to be handmade. We love going because we shop and eat lots!

Anyway, we'd planned to go after church but when we exited the church, it was raining buckets and continued in that vein the whole day. Of course, AITP is automatically cancelled and we're not here next Sunday to go! Grrr - on the bright side, I've saved money, right?!

Roti & curry (my sister made some for us)

Out to eat at Narai Siam - Thai place we went to on Saturday. We loved it so much

Wholewheat pitas with beef & stir-fried veggies

Angelo's - Italian place with the most DIVINE pasta ever!

Plane food - we'll be flying back to Jhb around supper time

Prayer request
Please pray for my friend, Elizabeth Hagen's daughter, Abby. She is ill in Houston! I told Elizabeth that I'd be praying; will you join me?

Have a great week everybody. Next week is Christmas!!!

Hey, stranger ;) I've been thinking about you even though I've haven't gotten to write. How are you healing??
I got your card in the mail over the weekend, and it brightened my day. Thank you so very much!!
Life has been busy around here, with only 6 more weeks to go then the season is over. Then, I'll be back in the bloggy swing of things.

Hello! Congrats on the new ebook! Sorry to hear you missed the Art in the Park. It sounds so awesome, I would love looking at all the crafts.

I'm jealous of you being on holiday...I could sure use one. LOL! I hope you're having a wonderful time and are enjoying all those yummy meals, well except the plane food, it usually disappoints. :)

My Menu Plan is up too! :)

Your menu looks great! But I think my favorite recipe would have to be Tuesday night!
