Giving Thanks!

I am thankful to have spent time with friends in September for whom i conducted my first Stampin' Up! workshop. I designed two cards for the workshop which each person made...this is one, perfect for the holiday. We all had a fun time together and i was thrilled that they were eager to buy some stamping supplies so that they could make cards of their own.
I am so thankful that my father moved to Virginia in May and has settled in so well. He is finding his way around, establishing new favorite places, meeting new people, and even started baking bread again. I had Thanksgiving brunch with him at his place today and had a great time. I baked and brought an apple pie, made with local apples from the Farmer's Market. I am thankful for those hard working farmers who come to market each week, no matter the weather, to bring the produce that they have raised so that it can nourish others.

I am thankful for the continuing good health and loving companionship of my cats: Sylvie, Louie, Fuzzy, and Gingy.
I am thankful to have met so many sweet and talented people through the magic of the internet. And i'm very grateful that you all have been patient with me as my blogging has dwindled to nothing for the past month or more...amongst other things, i started a 90-day detail to a new job that is keeping me very very busy...and i love that feeling!
