Scrapping for Sufficient Grace

On Saturday, I went to a scrapping fundraiser for Sufficient Grace Ministries at Holgate United Methodist Church in Holgate, Ohio. I decided to go because I needed some time to just get some scrapbook stuff done, mainly finishing Kyndra's first year scrapbook. So I packed up my things and went!

The event started at 10 am and lasted until 7 pm. I hadn't planned on staying the whole time but I did! The time went by so fast. I was able to finish up December in Kyndra's scrapbook and now all I have left is her birthday. We also worked on a special project. We made a sort of memory cube and it turned out really neat. I gave mine to my mom.

Kelly talked about her story and her ministry. She had me tearing up as she talked about Faith, Grace, and Thomas. She showed us the things that her ministry offers, such as the Dreams of You memory book, comfort bears, baby gowns, and bracelets.

There were a total of 7 of us scrapping and it was funny to see all of our stuff spread out. There were tons of scrapbooking stuff for 7 people! We had lots of snacks and drinks and we ate Subway for lunch. We had a steady stream of music playing in the background from all my favorite Christian artists.

I got some good conversation (and a couple hugs!) in with Kelly and that was wonderful! And Kathryn, we know you really wanted to be there! ;)

Sounds like you had a good time. I think it would have been so fun to go. I love scrapbooking. I am so far behind though, guess life just gets busy. :o)

Kathryn @ Expectant Hearts said...

I did, I DID! I love the internet and all the friends i have but it's hard to feel close and be so far away!
I'm glad you had a good time. And thanks for thinking of me!!

Sounds like you had a good time. I wish I could have went all that time I lived in Ohio and now so far away. Great picture of Kelly and you.

Jill said...

It sounds like you had a good time making memories. I wish I could have been there! I have been scrap booking a lot lately. It is kind of therapeutic for me.

Megan said...

OH i LOVE scrapbooking! I'm jealous! Sounds like you had a good time!

Kari @ p.s. said...

Sounds like fun and what a great way to get stuff finished. Uninterrupted time! Lovely - and you look beautiful in the last photo girl!

Holly, that is wonderful. Had you meet with Kelly before this? Sounds like you accomplished allot.
Good for you.

Mary said...

I have tried to start scrapbooking but it overwhelms me. I may have to go to a class. Although this sounds like it was fun.

Kelly @ The Beauty of Sufficient Grace said...

Thanks for sharing this, Holly. Your pictures are great! I'll probably direct people to visit this post when I finally get my post up about Sat.! It was so good to see you. And you are so kind to come all the way up here to support this little event. I wasn't sure how many people were coming and was just grateful that the UMC ladies were kind enough to support Suffient Grace. So grateful, in fact that this non-scrapbooker spent the day scrapping. But, as you were a witness...I probably did more chatting than scrapping! =) I had fun anyway...and thank you again for coming. You just bless my heart, dear friend.

That's great! i just saw your picture on Kelly's blog and realized that it's been ages since I've visited you. I'm so behind on my visits and I've missed you. I'm going to blame my new book, because I've been writing like a mad woman, but it's a worthy cause. :)
I enjoyed stopping by Holly.
Love you.
