Enjoying the Simple Things in Life

I learn so much watching my daughter enjoy the simple things in life. Watching her enjoy the tulips made me realize how sometimes I get so stressed and worried about things that I don't often take time to pay attention to the small things.
She doesn't worry about anything, she just lives in the moment and takes each minute as it comes. She has a childlike faith that I will take care of her and her needs will be met. It's moments like these that make me realize that this is what my Heavenly Father wants me to be like also.

"But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the
oven, will he not much more clothe you-- you of little faith?" (Matthew 6)

My FIrst Post

Ok so I decided to join the blogging world! Let's see how many of you actually read this stuff. I've decided to do a giveaway to the first person to comment on my blog.
So I've been a CTMH consultant for a little over a year now and absolutely LOVE the products. I have been scrapbooking since I had my daughter 2 years ago and CTMH was the first company I found that made it SO easy. I decided to jump on the bandwagon and sign up as a consultant. It's been not only fun scrapbooking my memories but I've also met some wonderful women who have also fallen in love with CTMH and have become wonderful friends.
For those who think scrapbookers are a little CRAZY, we're not, we just love to be creative and do it with others. Scrapbooking by yourself can be a little boring but when you do it with your friends, sharing ideas, getting ideas, etc., it becomes an amazing creative outlet (thus the title of my blog).
