My QUESTION of the week is:
HOW DO YOU FIND REST? (PS: DON'T WORRY THAT YOU HAVE TO FIND A BIBLICAL ANSWER THIS IS A STRAIGHT UP QUESTION)
Now for the give away!~!I made a scrappy apron and am throwing in some stationary and a surprise item. I can't take a photo like I planned because Joe took over 450 photos and he hasn't got my camera back to me yet. BUT I didn't want that to stop me from having my girl friend time fun!
