Someone had this fun little thing on their blog about the 80s. You had to post your favorite 80s stuff and she would draw a name for a prize. Well, I knew my memory wasn't all that great but I couldn't believe how many things I remembered when I started reading the other comments. Jelly shoes, cabbage patch dolls, strawberry shortcake, the skate inn, Paula Abdul, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, big hair, the Goonies movie, carebears, tight-rolling your jeans, those brown shoes and wrapping your laces in a coil instead of tying them, Punky Brewster, Cindy Lauper, my little pony, schrunching your socks, Footloose, Dirty Dancing, crimped hair, Keds, Cocktail, Electric Youth and Exclamation perfumes, the Smurfs!, the Babysitter's Club books.
When I think about my childhood my thoughts go directly to the bad stuff. Like being chubby and shy and the not-so-great friends. Why is it you usually remember the bad stuff first? But these things definetely brought a smile to my face. I'll have to refer to this list when I go to scrap my childhood.
Anyway, this is my latest page. I was trying something new with the white background, watercolored title and all that stitching. I like it but it's not my favorite. Good but not fabulous - dharlingk.
So, your random scripture for today is from here.
{For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10}
