Well, I did it...my first "Speaking Engagement"...haha :)
The sweet ladies from the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)group at my church invited my friend Joan and I to come to speak about our "junk"...what we do and why we do it.
So I packed up my junk and Joan loaded up her signs and pillows...and we spent the morning talking about what we love. It was a good day!
And of course I had to take a few pictures to share with my blogging friends...
Clocks, ladders and a couple of hinges...
Joan's fun signs and pillows...those Mr. and Mrs. pillows came home with me...thanks Joan :)
And of course a few grates and some chippy paint.
Anyone who knows me knows that speaking to a group is NOT my "thing"...in fact I have struggled with anxiety over it for years. I felt a little bit like this guy in the picture "stepping out" of my comfort zone. But I think it went well and I didn't even use the notes that I had
stressed over "carefully thought through"...over the last couple of weeks. And the coordinator even had to mention the time because I would have just kept on talking well beyond what was planned. Who knew I had so much to say??? I guess the words just flow when you are talking about things you love...God and junk...and yes in this case those 2 things do go together :) I am so blessed to be able to stay home everyday with my kiddos AND have a little business creating and playing with my junk goodies.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.
To my MOPS friends reading this...thanks again for the warm welcome and sweet comments! Happy Junking :)
Enjoy your day everyone...thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a great weekend...I'm heading to my first Flea Market of the season on Saturday with my mom and sisters. Wish me luck!
