Whoa! Thanksgiving is This Week!

Howdy Faithful Readers!

I have been gratefully working on some new crepe "forced bulb" creations and plugging away at the annual Pre Tree Cleaning Spree. I made applesauce from great local apples, finished a couple of orders for the Iron Dog and

I find myself  still in denial about the the rapidly winding down Fall!

I'm going to do a little catch up on my gratitude list:

4: Yummy fall produce. Winter Squash and greens, apples, beets, leeks, potatoes, clementines... I just love them all.
5: Hiking the steep muddy trail with my dog and friend. This makes the pie possible and just last week we even helped a lost, shirtless, shoeless guy (8 AM, in the 40's temp wise) find a friendly ranger. Good deed before breakfast.
6: Good Thrift. Oh My Goodness! 2 great lengths of vintage holiday print  for  $3.50.
7: Bleach. I know it's evil. But it saved the awesome fabric mentioned above.


8: Creative time. I am so lucky to get as much as I do.
9: My Pets. I spend time every morning in a big pile of my fur friends, enjoying my first cup of coffee.
10: Coffee. Can you be grateful and addicted at the same time? I say YES!
11: All my sisters. Blood and otherwise. You know who you are and without you I'd be lost. LOST!
12:  Casey and Rae at the Iron Dog. Seriously, with out you, my creativity would lack an outlet! Thanks for your support and encouragement.


 13: I am grateful for the motivation of a deadline. I hope it makes me into a wildly productive and jolly person for the next few weeks. I have lots of fun tucked in and am excited to be spending Thanksgiving with my wonderful Grandma and Baby Linnea (and the rest of my family too!)


A little "No Thanks" for my dead computer, but hey.. with a little miracle I'll get what I need off of the hard drive and keep moving forward.

Thanks for Reading!!

Good to see you again! LOVE love love your new forced bulb creations. I have my box of crepe and wire and tape, but nothing to show for it from your last daffodils. I can't believe you made snowdrops too! You rock. = )

I guess my sister and I will have to make a post-Thanksgiving trip to Niles to see what you've made for the Iron Dog!
