Another weekend . . .gone!!

Shweee!! Time is surely flying, I cannot believe Easter was 2 weeks ago!
Ok, do you know this?  Do you have one?
I saw this at a local shop and thought of it as just another gadget and a piece of plastic,LOL!! But, it is nothing like that, hubby spoiled me with one{all wrapped with ribbon,the works!}
You can create the most beautiful boxes, envelopes and card with this thingie, you can also emboss and it makes the folding part very easy:)
Then,being the Scatter Brain, that I am, you can just imagine,what my handbag looks like, so, I got one of these!! Works pretty well{don't know for how long}but for the past week,it has been very easy to find anything in my bag!LOL!!
Then, this sweetie of mine, she has been asked by the headboy of one of our Private English schools to attend his Matric Farewell with him, it will take place by the end of April,very early, but they do it in that way, then the students can focus on their exams for the rest of the year. Does she have a dress?  Yes, we got one yesterday, it is a St Lorient number, silver and it fits like a glove!Will share those later.

Lastly, i love the poems of Helen Steiner Rice,bought a little book and want to share one of the poems with you:

Stepping Stones to God

An aching heart is but a stepping stone
To greater joy than you've ever known,
For things that cause the heart to ache
Until you think that it must break
Become the strenth by which we climb
To higher heights that are sublime
and feel the radiance of God's smiles
When we have soared above life's trials.
So when you're overwhelmed with fears
And all your hopes are drenched in tears,
Think not that life has been unfair
And given you too much to bear,
For God has chosen you because,
With all your weaknesses and flaws,
He feels that you are worthy of
The greatness of His wondrous love.

    Hope you're gonna show us some of what you make with your gadget.
