I wanted to pop in and wish all my friends here in the USA a very Happy Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for, don’t we?

A couple of weeks ago my family and I started a new tradition. Each day, over text message, we share 3 things that we are grateful for. Since my girls no longer live at home, this is a great way for us to connect. We’ve had everything from “Got a free car wash today. Not just any car wash but the deluxe car wash!” (Mr. Awesome) to “I had some amazing tacos today” (that one was Ginny), and “I found a new hobby I’m excited about” (Christina discovered crochet). Me? “I got to call one of my team members to tell her she was #197 in the Top USA Stampin’ Up demonstrators”.

Sharing these texts is causing me to STOP and think about my blessings each day. I have a feeling this new tradition will continue well after Thanksgiving. I mean, really, we should stop and be thankful every day, not just in November, and not just around Thanksgiving.

Not a day goes by that I don’t stop and think how thankful I am for you, my sweet readers, and how much I love being a part of your day. I truly have the BEST job ever! Each time I read a comment or see an order from you, I take a moment to say thank you. Out loud. No really, I do! Never in my wildest dreams did I think this blog or my YouTube channel would take off. I just thought it would be a fun place to share my art. I figured I would have 20 or 30 people check it out. I am blessed beyond words, my friends. Thank you!

Saying thank you is one thing but showing you my gratitude is something that is a little harder to do through a blog. SO, Saturday, I have a special gift for each of you. I have an over the top video and a FREE 12-page PDF tutorial to go with it (a $15 value). I want to share this gift with you to say THANKS for being a subscriber and allowing me to share my love of stamping with you. I look forward to giving you this gift on Saturday so I will see you then!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
