Thankful


I enjoyed a lovely card swap this morning with a wonderful new group of stampers. This was our second time meeting and first time swapping cards. Everyone did such a beautiful job on their fall themed cards. I'm so happy that we will be meeting monthly to share a bite of food, friendship, learn new techniques, and swap cards. It's been a couple of years since I've been in a local group for card swaps. I didn't realize how much I missed it.

I made cards like the one above for my contribution. The image is a retired psx stamp that I picked up last weekend at GeeGee's in Carlsbad. She has the most fantastic treasure of used stamps from trade-ins. Ooh, it's like Christmas looking through those drawers. My sweet cousin gave me the pretty brads on the cards along with some more yummy stamps. I used mahogony distress ink on this one...it's my favorite color this week.

Since it's November and a time to give thanks, I thought about those things that bring joy to my life. Here are a few of the everyday pleasures that I'm so thankful for: a perfectly brewed cup of tea in the morning, a nice long walk with the pups crunching the leaves under our feet, the chatter of my son on the way home from school, A nice soft robe and squishy slippers, a good book that makes me giggle, and the hug at the end of a long day from my sweet hubby. What brings joy to your days?

I would have to say the joy comes playing with my boys in the leaves...waiting for the snow to come so we can go sledding! Cuddling with my animals. Chatting with my hubby on his way home from work each night (some how it gives me such peace each night). The last and finally thing that gives me much joy is candy canes...so excited that they are out in the stores! I bet you did not know I was a candy cane freak! LOL

I love it when my dog rubs his cheek against my hair after I wash it. I am totally loving that my new route to work: PCH. Why didn't I think of that 3 months ago? I am really blessed to work with some great kids everyday. I look forward to going to work.
