Happy Thanksgiving!

I probably won't be on the computer tomorrow so I am posting today. I hope everyone has a good day, whether you are with family, friends, or unlucky enough to be working! No matter how you spend your day, remember to take a moment and reflect on what you are grateful for! I think that this is something we should do regularly, no matter what day of the year it is. But, with the thanksgiving holiday, it is a strong reminder to stop and reflect and be thankful.
I am thankful for my husband! I am a lucky woman to have him in my life! He is the best!
I am thankful for my sister! She is a sweet and beautiful young woman!
I am thankful for friends and family! Everyone I know is very supportive of me and that makes me happy and feel good.
I am thankful for scrapbooking and the creative outlet it provides me!
I am thankful for the computer and internet and how it helps me with my creativity and learn new things and also to communicate with people.
I am thankful for good food! I love food! Yummy!
I am thankful that monetarily we are doing fine. We have been lucky to not be affected by the recession.
I am thankful for many other things, but really, I can't post them all!
Again, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Ok, a couple of posts back, I posted about a giveaway that I was entering on Donna Downey's blog. Well- I WON! Yay! Yahoo! How very exciting! I can't wait to see the goodies I won. Lots of good scrapbooking stuff. The goods came from Blue Moon Scrapbooking
so check them out. And, check out Donna's blog and the goodies she makes too. This woman is awesome.

-So today I am thankful for giveaways! I have won a few and it's always very exciting and fun!

-I am also thankful for grapefruit! Yes, I know it's silly but I'm silly! LOL! Grapefruit is yummy and I am happy that it exists!

Have you checked out my MIL and SIL Etsy site yet? If you haven't, you should. They have added some more jewelry to their store and I really like a lot of it.

That's my post for today!

Today I am Thankful for...

Just in case you are wondering why I am posting these thankful posts, here is the story. It's all because of all of those blogging scrapbookers! There's a couple of sites that are challenging to post everyday what you are thankful for this month. Obviously this is something that should be done year round, but since it is the month of thanks, it is a little more out in the lime light. So, since there are these challenges going on, some of the women I read regularly are doing this. So, in turn, it leads me to think about what I am thankful for. I won't post daily, but when I think of it, I am going to try and get a post up. So, on to today's thanks...
-The local library. What a great way to get those books I want to read and not pay for them! Heck yes!
-My awesome washing machine! Just doing some laundry today and I am happy to have a good machine that works really well.
-My hubby! Seriously, I am thankful for him every minute of every day! : )

What's going on

We're trekking up to Rochester (MN) tonight to stay at a hotel because Denny has an early morning appointment at Mayo. Just a yearly check up everybody-don't get excited! But they want him there at 6:45 a.m. for heaven's sake, so we are going up tonight. He has one appt. early and then a second one at 1:00. So, we'll have a little time to waste in town. I'm thinking it sounds like a good time to hit the mall! Probably won't buy anything, but who can resist shopping?! Especially in a state where there is no tax on clothes! I also think that a quick trip to Michaels craft store sounds good too. I usually don't buy much there because I think they are expensive, but I still like to go look. And, you never know what might be on sale! So, that's our Friday.
Well, Saturday is going to be crazy too. We have "Thanksgiving" with our friends Sat. night and I have to bring dessert. So I will be making that during the day Sat. I'm going easy this year. Brownies and Carrot cake. Sound good? Sounds good to me. We also have a b-day party that night too. Conveniently they are both in the same town. But, still not sure how we are going to fit them both in at the same time! LOL! I'm sure we'll figure out a way.
We've decided that Sunday sounds like a good day to do nothing! LOL! Can you blame us? I'm sure we'll do a few things around home, but it will be a good day to relax.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend too!

Also, if you want to know-I am now on Twitter. I don't really understand the damn thing, but I'm on there! LOL!

I might post again later with some scrappy inspiration. Haven't done that for awhile.

Today I am Thankful for...

-My husband! He is super awesome all the time but especially so when I don't feel good. Last night I had what I swear was a migraine and he is so sweet to take care of me! Thank you honey! You make me feel better just by being there for me.
-Sunshine in November! The sun has been shining the last few days and it is lovely.
-Creating! I love to create and I love to see what others create! Inspiration is all around and I really enjoy absorbing it.

My Etsy is live

I finally have my Etsy site up and running! Yay for me! It is a lot of work to get that thing going. You have to think of all your policies and costs and rules and stuff. Ends up being a lot of work. But, hopefully worth it. I just have 3 photos for sale right now, but I plan to add more stuff soon. Probably some more photos and maybe some scrapbooking stuff. Mini albums or something. Not sure yet. I would love it if you would stop by and check it out. And let me know what you think! The link is on the side of my blog but here it is too:

Been spending time on getting this going the last few days. But, I also created my first jewelry pieces! That was fun and exciting! My SIL and MIL have been making jewelry and I wanted to give it a try but didn't want to buy a lot of stuff I wouldn't like. So, I hung out with them and made a couple of things. Like I said, fun, fun! Still not sure if I want to buy the goodies to make jewelry though. Probably don't need to invest in more stuff that I might not do, and that would crowd up the house! Well, we'll see I guess! LOL!
They are also planning on participating in the craft show in F'burg. So, I decided to make a few things of my own to try and sell too. Right now working on some Christmas gift tags and some cards. Not sure if I will make anything else, but this is a good start.
I believe the show is Dec. 5th. Not sure on times but if you want to know, I can sure find out and post it here. If you're in the area that day, stop by and check out our stuff!
