Wow, lots to be thankful for… (plus, a little treat at the end)

This morning, I woke up with extra family here in our home.  It feels good to have a house full…..even if I forgot to put clean sheets on the guest bed until after they arrived.  Ooops.  And forgot to buy extra cereal and milk for breakfast this morning.  (No one actually makes breakfast Thanksgiving morning, do they?  Because if so, I need to take a few hosting lessons.)


In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m just grateful my family comes to visit, clean sheets or not.  Breakfast or none. ;)


I know today is the day everyone (in the U.S.) compiles those gratitude lists but I won’t make you sit through my entire list.  But I do have to say that these little nuggets would take up three of the bullet points on my list.  Their daddy would take up a 4th one! :)  (If you’re dying to know more on my list……I’ll send you an email! ;)



But I did hop on here really quickly to bring up one more thing……I’m pretty darn grateful to have this little outlet of mine.  A place to experiment with ideas in my brain, correspond with bloggy friends from all over the world, learn new tips and ideas from others, and share my projects…..even if they’re, well, not so good.  Thanks for being so tender with my heart, even if you don’t care for what I’ve made. :)


I sometimes ask my husband to pinch me, because it’s pretty dreamy to have a place where I can blog about what I love.  And to have such appreciative readers who are genuinely grateful.  And so sweet.  I’m not kidding, I really chat with my husband about this and kinda shrug my shoulders in disbelief.  It sometimes doesn’t feel real……..because, come on, what could be more fun.  And fulfilling.  I literally find myself saying, “oooooh, I want to try making that!  And once I figure it out…….I’m totally sharing.  Maybe someone else will want to know!”  Blogging gives me extra motivation and excitement to do something I’m already pretty passionate above.  What a bonus!  So, really, thank you again for riding along with me for the past few years.  Unless you just found this ol’ blog yesterday…….then thanks for riding along since yesterday!;)


Wow, that turned out to me a lot more wordy than I intended it to be.  Maybe I should’ve just written out a typical “gratitude list”. ;)


Anyway, I have a few things I’m going to be sharing and mailing out to some of you next week (sorry, totally spoiled that surprise) but I didn’t have everything together for today.  But I still wanted to come on today to say a big thanks!



So, you know how I have that sweet little shop where I have 7 patterns sitting in there?  Well, I have dreams for that little shop.  I want to have many, MANY more patterns in there.  Free patterns are fun but it’s sometimes nice to have actual complete patterns with pattern pieces and sizes, etc.  I know, I get that!  But, well, filling up that shop with more patterns just isn’t as high on the To-Do right now.  (Because I have too much fun making Halloween costumes, or baby gifts, or holiday decor.)  But one day that little shop will grow to more than what’s in there:




But, the patterns that are in there are still pretty fun.  They are computer files that I send to your email (well, they’re actually sent to you automatically….so you don’t have to wait for me anymore.  whew!)  But they are a great way for those who want to start learning how to use a pattern.  Because they’re not like your regular ol’ store bought patterns.  They are written kind of like my blog posts here; with lots of pictures and detailed instructions and different sizes to cut out.  Then, once you get the hang of using pattern pieces and sewing them together, maybe it’ll help you become comfortable enough to tackle some of those more vague (and sometimes tricky verbiage) store bought patterns.  Maybe??





Anyway, since today is a huge Giving Thanks day (well, here in the U.S. it is…..but who doesn’t appreciate a little gratitude!), I’d like to share a little love from my shop


First of all, the patterns are all going on sale for $3.00 All of them!!  (Until Friday night at 11:59 p.m.)  But also, maybe if there are 20 of you who want a $10 gift card to use in my shop, it’s all yours.  You can use all of it, part of it, share it with a friend, etc.  But 20 of you, from anywhere in the world, will be chosen to receive a coupon code.  (And since the patterns are all on sale for $3, that means you can receive several for free.)


All you need to do to be a $10 gift card winner (to my shop), isGIVEAWAY CLOSED!!

  • Leave ONE comment below, making sure to include your email in the comment form (it won’t be visible to anyone else but me). And then tell me what you’re grateful for today.  Even if it’s the warm slippers on your feet…….I want to hear it!  (If you’re reading via email, click here to enter. Don’t try and reply to this email.)
  • Then, give yourself a little hug from me.  And tell yourself thanks for the bloggy love!  Because that’s what I’d do if you were right here. :)
  • And finally, enjoy your day today.  (And no cheating……it’s one of the rules. ;) )



**Giveaway closes tonight at 11:59 p.m. (giveaway part is closed) but the $3 pattern sale ends Friday, November 23rd, at 11:59 p.m. (MST)



Oh, also, tomorrow I post the winner of the Silhouette Portrait giveaway.  (So, if you haven’t entered, there’s still time.)  And for those of you who have been asking, yes, I’ll also be posting the codes to buy your own Portrait or Cameo, at a discounted black friday price.  Wahoo! So check back for that too. :)



Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Hi my name is Penny and I just found your blog today..isn’t that great!!!!! I love your energy when you blog…it’s from your heart. I am spending this Thanksgiving by myself this year. My husband committed suiside on Thanksgiving 23 yrs ago. I have been a widow from the age of 23. I was four months pregnate at the time and I had a beautiful baby girl. I gave my whole life to her and tried to give her the best life possible. She is 22 now and has a 2yr old now and has a life of her own. She and Coop went to Miami for Thanksgiving this year. I am so happy and excited for her but I miss her like crazy. So the reason I told you all of this is…. I am one Thankfull lady today…I could have eseally been shot that day back in 1989. I would not have had Sierra and Cooper at all so being alone for one short wknd is better than never having them at all. I AM SOOOO THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE!!!!!!!!

    Above all, which includes my wonderful husband and my two adorable clever pretty daughters,I am most thankful for our wonderful nanny/ domestic worker. In a country where I grew up in a time of apartheid and isolation, I now have my eyes opened daily by a humble wonderful peaceful and thankful woman who teaches me about humility and has made me so aware of how incredible it is to be able to help someone else who is so less fortunate. She is part of our family. A second mother to my daughters and has made me a much wiser kinder and better person and mother. And for that I am extremely thankful.

    Right now in this instant, I am really thankful for this site, and I’m so glad that Thanksgiving day is giving me an opportunity to tell you so!
    I wandered over here from pinterest and just browsed a little and within 10 minutes I found so many projects I would like to try! Many, many thanks for putting all the effort in each and every post and enabling so many people to create lovely things – that is really a gift.

    In a more global context I am thankful for my sweet husband (whom I got to marry barely 7 short months ago) and my most adorable baby daughter who made our happiness complete this summer! Both are perfect blessings to me and make me so, so happy!

    There is so much to be thankful for. It sounds crazy, but the Lord has given me a grateful attitude for the “trials” and difficulties that our family has gone through this past year. It’s been hard to go through, but the Lord has been so faithful and I am joyfully looking forward to the day that in hindsight, the Lord will show me the purpose that the difficult blessings were for in my life, and those around me.

    Also for a strengthened and wonderful friendship with my dear Momma.

    Thank you for all of your inspiration in the craft department, and being so kind to take the time to do tutorials for beautiful projects with wonderfully helpful pictures. Bless you!

    May the Lord bless your day of Giving Thanks.

    I am thankful for family especially after the close-call 2 days ago that my mom had driving to work- she was in a head-on collision with another driver that was on his phone and not paying attention to where he was going. The seat belt and airbag saved her and left her with only bruising. So thankful his carelessness didn’t shorten our time with her.

    and I am thankful for all the crafty bloggers that I can find inspiration as well as laughter… it’s so good to know we are quirky for our own reasons. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I´m thankful i found your site and this give-away (=
    I´m thankful for my wonderful teen girl, struggling with high functional autism, and how great she is and how wonderful she works out a solution for all her difficulties! She is a really smart and sweet girl!
    I´m thankful for my brave 10 year old boy, who does his best to lighten up my day – every day! He has no male role model, because I´m a single mom and their father neglects them. But he learns a lot from watching his grandfather, my great dad!
    I´m thankful for a lot of things and i pray everything will turn out fine and my kids will be happy and have a great live when they are grown up!
