I'm thankful for you!

I'm in a bit of denial about Thanksgiving (and I have to admit, about Christmas, too!)! I can not believe that it is one week away! I have to work on the actual day, so we will be celebrating next Saturday with some friends and family! I was thinking fondue or maybe a big steak ... does that say "thanksgiving"?

This card was created for the A Muse News Blog "Oldies but Goodies" section a while ago, but there were some techy problemos and it didn't make it (Jenn and I were thinking along the same lines today!), but I wanted to share it with you today! This little Pilgrim girl and boy are so fun - and easy! A little Copic to the face and hair and you are good to go! This is one of my favorite A Muse sentiments, too - and in my humble opinion, it gets way too little love!! In this season of counting blessings, I count my friends twice!

Oh my goodness ...

What the heck happened here? My blog is stuck in October! I wish I could say that it was one thing that pushed me over the edge, but really, it has just been a combination of a super crazy fall! Homeschooling my 11 year old has been more of a challenge this year (somehow I thought it would get easier), the other two kids are kind of hellions (love them bunches, but really, do we have to fight over dryer lint?), and I just took a new job at work which in theory will reduce the time that I spend away from home, but right now it is sucking me dry!! Okay, enough of all this, Tisha - just show me some crafty goods!!!
These simple Florence cards were part of a "Thank You" gift that I made for my new boss, whom I have known for quite a few years. I have always wanted to use the "thanks for being flexible" sentiment with Florence, but never really had a reason to - but I knew that my new manager would! :) So I whipped up a quick set of 10 notes for her! The card at the top of the post is what I gave her with the present!

Thank you all for sticking with me through this unscheduled blog break! I am so lucky to have such amazing crafty friends! Leave me a little comment love , let me know you are still here!!

Coming up next: pictures from my trip to the Motherland - A Muse Headquarters in Seattle!
Supplies: Maderia and Kitchen notecards, Stitched grosgrain ribbon, Florence, thanks for being flexible, mini oval, copic markers
