The Day of Thanksgiving is finally here!
I am thankful for:
- My family – Skotte, my mom, my brother, my two loving dogs, wonderful in-laws, great aunts, uncles, and cousins!
- Food to eat
- A place to live
- Terrific friends – too many to name but I love you all!
- Books to read to inspire, teach, and entertain us
- The Internet – it’s hard for me to remember life before the internet, as so many of my friends and family are connected through it. And I met a lot of my friends through it. I am grateful any time I can log on!
- TV, Radio & Movies – to see and hear our favorite books come alive, to be entertained, to learn new things, watch and hear the news from all over the world, and keeping hope alive with inspiration of how to make the world a better place.
These are the true Spices and Flavors of our life!
Thank you all for being in my life!
Our Tiny Earth has posted a list of places here you can get Free Thanksgiving Dinners here in Rochester, NY.
Thank you for that, Our Tiny Earth!
I have finally made a page on Facebook!
I have several things going on, and decided to link all of them there.
So, join up and you can see all of my different projects and interact with me!
I am so excited!
I have listed my first pieces of jewelry on my Etsy shop!
It’s a Rainbow Magic Bracelet in Chainmaille (Stretch)!
I love making and creating things.
I am nervous because…
Well, there is always someone better!
But, this is why we practice and hone our crafts.
This is why I keep trying things until I find something I enjoy.
And you all get to enjoy the fruits of my labors.
So please, take a look at my store and tell me what you think.
