Weekend Wrap - 8/30/2010

I had so much fun this weekend!  Ms. Diva and I spent a lot of time in the pool.  My little bro made it to Texas for a two week vacation.  The music for church service went very smoothly, and we did Amazing Grace/House of the Rising Sun version (I play violin, and hubby plays guitar and sings on the Praise Team).  I got some craft time in, and got both the Book Reviews I had pending posted and turned in (Forgotten and Captured By Grace).  Just in time, since I have three historical fictions on their way from Bethany House Publishers, LOL!  All in all a good weekend.

Now, for the coincidence (God's way of staying anonymous) of the weekend.  My mom and I went to go shopping on Saturday.  I needed to get supplies to make more Stay-Put-Towels, and we stopped at the Super Wal-Mart completely by accident (we did continue on and stop at Hobby Lobby, Sam's Club, and another Wal-Mart).  They didn't have the item I was planning to buy there (of course not, LOL), but I decided to buy some stabilizer there since that Wal-Mart still has a fabric cutting counter.  While waiting for my turn to have the fabric cut, I noticed that the lady in front of me was cutting fabric that I had previously purchased.  Being the ever curious craft I am, I asked what she was using it for.  Turns out that she has an Etsy shop, and makes BooBoo Rice Bags.  We had a great conversation about Etsy, and different issues with having a store on-line through Etsy.  I truly believe that God placed me in that store to have that conversation.  Isn't cool how He can do something that personal for me?  Now, I am just that much closer to taking the plunge and getting an Etsy store open.
