November makes me think of all the things I am thankful for.  I watch as people post their daily "thank you's" on Facebook.  I envy those who can publicly announce what they are grateful for.  I am appreciative of so many people and for so many things, I need the whole year to announce them.  I am also afraid that I will forget someone.  I do feel blessed each and every day for my family and friends.  I am thankful for such a handsome, smart, well behaved young man and a devoted, loving, hard working husband.  I am thankful or my DVR too.  See, these are the things that I should not be listing:o)  I am grateful that today, my cousin called and wants to spend a holiday with my family.

I am blessed.

Here are a few things that I have created recently.   I am blessed to work from home and do something that I love and the ability to share with my peeps.

This layout was created using Farmhouse Paper Company.  The papers and stickers are from the Sugar Hill collection.  I added some Studio Calico wood veneers, Chic Tags and a tin from A Flair for Buttons.  I turned my veneers onto a new ink pad to achieve the dark brown color.  

This tag is created using Sugar Hill too!  Can you tell I love it???  I cracked open the stamps for this tag for the Thanksgiving table.

Here are the complete layouts from the peeks that I posted a few days ago.  I must ask for your forgiveness in my horrible picture taking skills.  The days are just not long enough.  I have a dear friend who is probably cringing right now:o)

Well, this one isn't bad!  I used Authentique's "Thankful" Collection kit that can be purchased over at Eclectic Paperie!  Don't forget your adhesive when you stop over there.  I used Zip Dry to adhere my feathers!  Don't you just love the turkey sticker? Or do you love the feathers from Studio Calico? Or is it the "Keep Calm and Hunt On" tin from A Flair for Buttons?  Well, I am partial to the photo:o)

I do thank you all for stopping in.  Have a wonderful holiday and may you be blessed with family and friends.
