Give Thanks...

We have so much to be thankful for....not just this year, but every year. Most everyone in my family is doing well (health wise) and is happy. I can't begin to list everything that I'm thankful for - from family, to my job, to friends (especially the friends that I've met online/through blogging), and being able to find time to create! We are blessed and I am very thankful. (Even when my internet is out for a week at a time -- I know that Bruce will come home and be able to fix it...and in the meanwhile, I get to spend time with the kids who go through withdrawal from not being online as much as I do!)

I hope you have many things to be thankful for as well.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Here are some cards that will arrive late at their destinations but nevertheless I actually got them into envelopes this year rather than having them sit half finished on the kitchen table!

Thanks for taking time to visit! :)

CK Convention in Seattle at the Meydenbauer!

You know it's that time again! The Creating Keepsakes Convention in Seattle/Bellevue! This year I didn't sign up for any classes - instead I got to help work at the booth of one of my absolute favorite companies ever....Crafty Secrets! Spending time with Sandy Redburn the owner, and Jessie, a shop owner from B.C. was just about the highlight of my year! LOL These ladies are sweet, funny, amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my time with them! They have the neatest accent but it isn't that harsh british-y, "EH?!" sounding accent! Didn't get to shop quite as much as I would have liked, but that's probably for the better.

And gosh darn, I forgot to get pics right after we set everything up- but at least I got a few snapshots of some samples right before we tore down the booth. There were so many more pictures that I wish I could have taken.... but there will definitely be a next time so stay tuned!

At the bottom, it's the three of the middle is Sandy, then Jessie- They are so awesome! I ♥ them!!
