Sick and doing a happy dance

Being sick and doing a happy dance don't generally come hand in hand, but tonight they do for me.

For starters, we have our CO visit this week.  It's been a bummer that I had to catch a cold during this special time.  My goal was to be out in the ministry with them every day while they were here, and after getting this cold, well, the goal was switched to Make it to the meetings.  So I haven't been able to enjoy them as much as I would have liked, but I am thoroughly enjoying them.  We have a substitute CO and Wife because our CO is teaching Elders school.  I LOVE our sub though, they are so kind and sweet, and I don't think brother Pack has ever frowned, he has the kindest smile on his face at all times.  If that's not inviting, I don't know what is.

I have thoroughly benefited from his talks these past 2 meetings, thoroughly.  So so SO encouraging, and definitely what I needed to hear.  I'm so glad that I made it tonight.  I was feeling completely exhausted and stuffy and like my head was carrying around an anvil instead of a brain.  But I made it, and by the end of the meeting, I was feeling SO much better!  Thank goodness!  I'm still feeling good, so my hope is that I'm getting better, and if I wake up feeling mostly like a human being, then I'll be out in the ministry.  I'm really hoping!

So that's part one.

Part 2 is that I came home to find that a friend from out of town ordered one of my new flowers that I listed on Etsy today!  How awesome is she?!?!?  So I packed up her order and it's all ready to drop at the post tomorrow!  Woohoo!  I created a new category on my shop, I decided not to put a backing on the flowers and  the category is called "you decide" so the purchaser gets to tell me what to make it into...a brooch pin, headband, barrette, alligator clip, what have they.  Hopefully it will get good results :)

Oh and I've been meaning to say... If you live in the area and want to help me out by modeling some of my stuff for no pay what-so-ever, that could be arranged.  I need more pictures in my shop and could use some free models :)  Thanks in advance, you're awesome!
