Happy New Year!

hello! I am striving to make another freebie for all of you before this year ends.. it's been a while since my last post... there's a lot of things to do these past days.. the last minute shopping!! (as if I have a lot to shop! hee hee!!) last week, We have been very busy preparing our surprise video for our pastor! A month ago, I told one of our church workers that I am planning of taking a video of our church members' birthday greetings to our pastor: they have to describe him in one word or an adjective that best describes him, secondly they have to say what is the most memorable teaching they have heard on our pastor's preachings and how they have applied it on their lives and thirdly! of course their birthday greetings in one sentence!! hee hee. Me and my hubby is really glad that we were able to finish the video.. although we didn't make it on our morning service (aw.. sads) we still manage to make it on our afternoon fellowship. It's our year-ender party... there's a lot to prepare and look forward to for the coming year!! Hope He liked what we have prepared for him.

Christmas this year is different... different because my in-laws atlast! found the time to visit us! my hubby's christmas is complete since we were able to celebrate it with his family.. I prepared carbonara for them (I'm not really good at cooking... well... atleast I've tried my best right!! hehehe) although I'm not sure wether they liked it or not.. (there's a lot of leftovers.. awww)

Ok! that is me.. trying to look like a pro!! hahaha LOLz.. I really have to ask my hubby to take some photos of me while cooking! feeling like a chef! hehehe. And that's our new gas range! (whoo I think I have to take a good shot on that next time!) that comes with a range hood too, but we haven't installed it yet. our old tecnogas gas range have to bid goodbye after its 25years of service to us (whoa!!) we bought that 3 weeks ago! Another blessing, not to brag about but to thank the Lord for!!

and because I am very thankful for this holiday season, here's my last christmas kit for all of you! Yuletide Traditions! :) I love the frame!! weee hope you enjoy it! BUT BEFORE THAT

Despite my dismay still a freebie

Ok, I just got my credit card a month ago, it was a surprise cause although I was wishing I could apply for a credit card I didn't even bother filing an application for it.. I got a mail encouraging me to get one the next day I got an authorization letter to finally accept the card and the following day I got my card! whoa! very fast huh?

I've been praying for wisdom from God, when I first knew about this scrapbooking sites selling goodies online, I wished to be a designer myself specifically on digital scrapbooks and wanted to create my own kits and eventually sell it! Just like other designers do! I 've signed up on paypal.. asked questions from my friends about online selling and other stuffs and prayed for God's wisdom. There's so many online scams I've read about and I'm getting precautions so I would'nt get scammed myself (haha who would want to get scammed right?)

I've read about online selling, studied how to sell online.. and practiced designing! and while waiting, I've created this blogs and websites preparing myself for what I wish to do. I've joined contests and challenges to exercise my skills and ability to design... I'm still not so prepared for this and finally! here it is! I got my credit card instantly.. should I say this is God's answer to my prayers?? I could'nt measure God's faithfulness! He is superb!

I've figured it out how'd they do that!! LOLz!! how to put a "buy now", "pay now", "donate" buttons on my blogs and websites!! (although for some you would say it's chicken! even a first grader can do that! but in my country where technology is kinda late, It's one great achievement.. hahaha) I'm really getting excited! I'm looking forward to more of what God would do!

Yes, I am happy but kind of a little frustated about my issues on online purchases.. I'm getting so much transaction errors.. and still figuring out what could be the problem.. and I'm a little confused why my freebies aren't getting as of now I've prepared a little freebie for you! Mariah's FAQ states that it could be because of my blog feed, I've checked my settings and I think it was fine.. so now to test wether the problem is on my part I decided to post this freebie for you today! nice one huh?? haha..we'll here's my first wordart .. I hope you can use it to your layouts.. enjoy!

ADC Regional Talentfest - a success and a failure...

hello, I know this is kind of late but as usual, I got busy with so many stuff... I got a chance to layout our Talentfest just recently, and now I have the time to share it with you guys too!!

This year's talentfest is another heartbreak for us! We started practicing months before, scheduled practices during workdays, and some of us including me and my hubby even skipped work just to give time to this year's fight.. some of the results are real frustrating.. sometimes I think that, are these people we call christians are real christians?? huh? We came here, not merely to fight for medals and certificates but one reason we do this is to glorify God.. but have we really glorified God?? Are we that thirsty to have such titles forcefully? not even taking into consideration, others' feelings?, or shall I say : the feelings of our brothers and sisters in the Lord?.. Come on! Let's grow up and I hope next year's fight would be fair!! Beat us! but beat us in a fair manner! and hope to see a christian-like attitude naman, ha?? hehehe

Still.. we are the champions! whether you liked it or not!! ok! so without further ado... here it is..

Note: more layouts to be uploaded soon! with my pre-layout page freebie!!.

TRUSTING... is it difficult??

I just received a phone call from our attorney sending us the good news that my petition was granted!! I have to asked her several times just to confirm that I did'nt heared it wrong!! haha.. I can't believe that it was really approved.. if I would look back on the last 2 years accomplishing my documents and gathering proofs, I really can't believe my hardships was not put to waste! (not to mention the financial expenses!!! haha) and the first thing that I thought about was! Whew! God is really faithful!! He really is! thinking about this "petition thing" was very tiring, and I can say that my faith was also tested during the process, I even doubted God would grant my prayers, so everytime there was a court hearing for the presentation of proofs and testimonies, I would call or text my close friends and church mates to pray for it. They would comfort me and tell me, "God has answered your prayer! so don't worry.." It's very difficult to trust like a child! I would say to myself, yes God will answer my prayers but most of the time I can't stop thinking what if it turned out to be the other way.. but I think that is what God is teaching me, to just trust in Him!! I would like to share this illustration I read from my favorite christian book:

The Cliff
A man named jack was walking along a steef cliff one day when he accidentally got too close to the edge and fell. On the way down he grabbed a branch which temporarily stopped his fall. He looked down and to his horror saw that the canyon fell straight down for more than a thousand feet. He couldn't hang onto the branch forever, and there was no way for him to climb up the steep wall of the cliff.
So Jack began yelling for help, hoping that someone passing by would hear him and lower a rope or something. "HELP! HELP!" Is anyone up there? HELP!" He yelled for hours, but no one heard him. He was about to give up when he heard a voice.
"Jack. Jack . Can you hear me?"
Yes, yes! I can hear you. I'm down here!"
"I can see you, Jack. Are you all right?"
"Yes, but... who are you, and where are you?"
"I am the Lord, Jack. I'm everywhere."
"The Lord? You mean, GOD?"
"That's me."
"God, please help me! I promise - if You'll get me down from here, I'll stop sinning. I'll be a really good person. I'll serve you for the rest of my life."
"Easy on the promises, Jack. Let's just get you down from there; then we can talk. Now, here's what I want you to do. Listen carefully."
'I'll do anything Lord. Just tell me what to do."
"Okay. Let go of the branch."
"What?" "I said, let go of the branch. Just trust me. Let go."
There was a long silence. Finally Jack yelled, "HELP, HELP! IS ANYONE ELSE UP THERE????"

Yes, sometimes my faith is shaken because of what is happening around me, but God remains faithful all the time. Sometimes when we face trials that we know are beyond our capabilities, that is the only time we start to trust in the Lord, I may be guilty on this but God didn't failed me, He still answered my prayers, great is His Faithfulness!! I bring back all the glory to Him!

How about you? are your problems seems letting you down?? Just trust in the Lord.
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
