Happy Thanksgiving

On this day for celebrating gratitude, I would like to thank all my family and friends who share my life with me.
I am so grateful for all the wonderful things in my life, and to have technology at my fingertips, that all people can stay connected, regardless of where they are in the world, at anytime, by phone, email or blog! It's so fun for my brothers and sisters, those by birth as well as those who I have adopted, can send me pictures, texts or comments at any time to share thoughts and experiences with them!
As I sit at the dinner table today,with both family members and good friends, enjoying the meal prepared lovingly by all, I will reflect upon all the blessings that I have bestowed throughout my life and go forth with an attitude of humility and service for those who are less fortunate.
And Congratulations Melissa.......You are the winner of the entertainment set!

It was very exciting to receive this loot from the Hero Arts Friendship ATC Swap. These were all sent to Canada, and then redistributed. They come from all over,
even one from Australia! Cute stamps remind me of my friend, Bridgette, as she is cute and sweet! I love to use these stamps when I need a bit of cute!
My entry was posted earlier using the "Four Doll Stamps" I have loved the doll series from Hero Arts!
In fact I am thinking that I will use one to make a cute ATC for one of the upcoming swaps!

Friday Art

I haven't gone into Mystic Paper for over a week and I was missing the friends in the shop......... so I had to stop by at lunchtime to see the new displays I caught the ladies working on last week. They are really sweet. The new featured products in the front are themed Marie Antoinette. They have made dozens of decorated tags and they are all hanging from a vintage looking Christmas tree that's lit up in Pink! Oh, how cute! While I was there, Jennifer gave me an extra altered spoon. It's so pretty! I love the little birdie and the green leaf ribbon holding the twig in place. It is so creative! My spoon swap is now complete!

Spoon Swap

Here they are , the swapped spoons! Thank you, Jennifer, for encouraging me to join this swap! Thank you, Becky, Jennifer, and Sherry for the imaginative altered art . I love them all. It was challenging for me to alter the spoons, but I think it can be addictive!
Now if someone has a spoon that would like to swap with me....I do have a few extra fairytale spoons...Please just leave a comment! I would love for your spoon to join this creative collection.

Fantasy Weekend

While everyone was getting into the Trick or Treat Mode, I headed over to the airport to pick up Michael Jackson, aka, Shamim and we headed out to the Hilton for the Saboten-Con. It was so fun the hotel was filled with Lolita's, Fairies and Super Hero's of the Anime and Manga World.
We met the most wonderful people, artists of print and screen.
