Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks…

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for many things, especially “nature” and its ability to soothe my soul in all four seasons in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

I try to get outside for some fresh air each day, even if it’s just a walk to the mailbox.

My cat, Jack walks around the backyard with me on the days when the sun is shinning.

I recently created an autumn themed mandala in watercolor using some leaves from my yard as inspiration. I also added iridescent watercolor for some sparkle.

I finished my piece with color pencils. I think I will frame this one!

Many thanks to each of you for your likes and kind comments on my blog this year.

Wishing you a day filled with Giving Thanks!

Cheers! 🙂

Snuggle Bug

I like making AND receiving handmade cards…

How about YOU?!

I made this card for my husband’s birthday recently:

The holidays are not always easy…

Snuggle someone you love today, even if they bug you a little!

Happy Wednesday AND Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

Cheers! 🙂

Save Room For Pie!

Even if you aren’t celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday…

I hope you have a slice of pie!  🙂

  3. Huckleberry
  4. Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake (it is kind of a pie!) 😉
  5. Pumpkin
  6. Cherry
  7. Apple
  8. Mixed Berry

I hope you “share” your favorite with me!

Cheers! 🙂

A Button Tree?

Carla Sonheim’s assignment for her online 365-day video class was to plant something other than a seed… and describe what would grow!

So I wrote a sweet poem and created A Button Tree:

Maybe it could be a song for a child’s book like this one?

I found this joyful “Thanksgiving” song in it that you may enjoy:

I like that last line, “Happy hearts and thankful…” may this give you the reason why.

Cheers! 🙂

Feeling Thankful

I found this quote on the internet the other day:

It says, “It is not happy people who are thankful…  It is thankful people who are HAPPY!  😊

it was a good reminder to me.  I hope you like it too!  ❤️

Giving THANKS for all of you today.  Thank you for your encouragement,  friendship and JOY you give to me!

EnJOY your day!  🌈
