A sneak peek of something soooooo sweet.....

Tomorrow is the day I hitch a ride with my buddy Wendy on a big plane and travel waaaaaaaay down south where the air is cooler, much cooler than here.
I will get to hug in real life my truly special friends-of-the-heart Vikki and Fee, as well as girls I've known and loved for years like Dawn, Joy and Vicki. And as well as those precious gals I'll have almost fifty new faces to meet at Let's Get Stitched!

I will also be incredibly blessed to spend the whole day on Saturday with my daughter Kezzie, and my two grandsons, Cal and Dee! I haven't seen them since December 2012 so this will be a much anticipated reunion. \o/

I won't show any pics of the two projects I'm sharing with the troops at the Sunday Stitching Day, but I will show you a sneak peek of something new I'm releasing as soon as I return home....


Wednesday...be here next Wednesday, March 12th, for the biggest Elefantz reveal of the year so far...


I'm so excited!


 The three winners of my Zig Millenium pen giveaway were drawn yesterday, so let's shout a hearty
CONGRATULATIONS!
to Lisa, Shari, and Renea!

I've been busy in the kitchen again, nourishing my body with good foods that I probably won't be able to access from a motel in Melbourne.

Raw Pecan and Oat Porridge with Dates...
(recipe from Kemi's dvd here)


Bliss Balls...
(free recipe here)
 

Raw macadamia nuts, orange zest, raw cacao, and medjool dates... 


 ...blitzed to a paste in the food processor, and rolled into little balls with a dried cranberry hidden in the centre.
Store on a bed of coconut, if you think they'll last. They didn't last in my house.
 


While I'm away I've scheduled some blog posts for you, and I hope you enjoy them.

If you have some spare prayers, pray for our safe travel as fifty women are flying in to Melbourne from all over the country. Pray that our families are fine while we're absent. 
And pray that I get to share Jesus.

Bless you heaps!

You'll only be a few minutes from Preston Market where there heaps of fresh fruits and vegies, nuts, dried fruit and an organic stall etc so at least you will be able to get lots of tasty snacks

I am so glad you will get to see your daughter. A year and 2 months is way too long. Make sure you get lots of hugs. I'll be praying for safety and that you will get to share Jesus, the greatest gift of all.

Have a wonderful trip Jenny and thank you for your good wishes for our own trip tomorrow to NZ. It's such an exciting time for you especially seeing your daughter and grandsons as well, just wonderful, there will be lots of hugs, enjoy it all with catch ups and meeting your crafting friends. Looks like maybe a gorgeous giraffe in the sneak peak, those and elephants top my list of favorites. Once again your food looks so yum and healthy to boot, hope you are able to keep a little on track in Melbourne and enjoy some yum food. Wishing the best for you and your family. Judithann
