Not Enough Time in the Day

I was going to finish my layout and planned on posting it this evening. Well obviously that didn't happen! LOL! However, I was able to fit in several other things that I wanted to do today!

This morning I attended the Coffee Pauses for Causes which is a local event in my town that happens every Tuesday morning and in which I'm on the Stirring Committee (Stirring is intentional!). It's a event which highlights a different local charity every week in which you can come and find out more about their cause and how to help. We also have coffee donated by different vendors every week and a Domestic Tip provided by community members highlighting special skills, recipes or crafts. Coffee is by donation and all proceeds go towards the charity of the week and an another local organization called Guardian Gals. Even though this was only the second week for Coffee Pauses the turnout has been wonderful! I'm excited to see what the future holds for this event!

I was also able to get to the gym. About 2 weeks ago I joined again after 2 years of being away and it's wonderful to be back! I'm a runner so I'm use to putting in long miles, however, it's nice to do some weightlifting and build the strength up in my old creaky knees.

I've also been working on some digital Christmas Elements to go along with my Christmas Trees. I don't know if it's anything that will interest people, but my mom likes them. And in the end that's all that really matters, right? - if mom likes them. :0) As soon as I finish my element kit I will post them. I haven't figured out how to put them up on my blog so you'll able to download them. I'll keep working on that.

Hope everyone had a great day today and was able to enjoy some nice weather.

What a great cause - I will have to see if we have any groups like that in our area! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks JBond and Casey for the comments! JBond - I've create some really cool Christmas elements and lights to go with my trees. I'll post them when I get them done. Casey - it really is a wonderful cause and I'm so excited to be a part of it!
