Short and Sweet




Its Thanksgiving week already! I think this year was on warp drive. I hope everyone has special plans this year with their family. Take time to think about all of the wonderful things in your life to give Thanks for :) This year for the holidays I am focusing on having fun and enjoying time spent with friends and family. I am usually far to busy being stressed out about everything being perfect. I think one blessing from being unemployed this holiday is the fact that alot of those issues that cause so much stress has been taken out of my hands. I just have to go with the flow and see what each day brings and there is a very liberating feel to that. I dont have the budget for perfect and when that fact is taken out of the situation, what is left is concentrating on what is affordable. That is being able to go to school programs to see your grand kids perform, ballet recitals, visiting friends, playing games and baking cookies. Not only is that affordable,,,,, its priceless. (So take that Master Card. lol)


I have some new cupcake ornaments that I have been working on. Here are a few. They will be going on my website very soon. I have been having fun making gifts for people, but I fear I cant post photos or I will give it away. So I dont have a lot to show this week. But this elf needs to get back to the workshop. Have a beautiful, happy, healthy and blessed Thanksgiving...

Gail, you just said a mouthful! The stress was removed from my holiday this morning and instead of being upset, I am thankful. When one door closes and all that, lol.
The cupcake ornies are so cute. Nice work,
