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!

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!

Even if you aren’t celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday…
I hope you have a slice of pie! 🙂
What is your favorite kind of pie?
Here is a list of my favorites – not in any order:
- Chocolate cream
- Key Lime
- Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake (it is kind of a pie!) 😉
- Mixed Berry
I hope you “share” your favorite with me!

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! 🌈
