Quite an honour

So, a few weeks ago, I was at our public library and the librarian and I struck up a conversation about scrapbooking (I know. Shocking.) And I guess someone used to host monthly crops at the library but now she is too busy and would I be interested in doing something like that?

I said I'd think about it and get back to her.

So, I thought about it and agreed to host one every two months. There's no cost. Just come, bring your stuff, set up and scrapbook.

So, if anyone local is reading this and is interested, you can sign up at the library. The first one is on September 27th. Space is limited, though, so sign up soon.

Anyway, so then, Kathy (the librarian) says that she's been talking to Bryan (a friend of mine from church, who also scrapbooks) and that they would like to make a display in the library of my layouts and published work!

How cool is that?

So, this week, Sage and I went to help set up the display.

The sign says by "local artist, Leigh Penner." Ha!
I just can't get over this-- it is such an honour. Really.
