I am Grateful For...

Who says that it has to be Thanksgiving to feel extra appreciative?

I am grateful for...
  • my family and friends for being understanding of all things Tina, i.e. craft addiction, food, giggle fits, mandatory nap time, occasional potty mouth, etc.
  • my job and supportive boss. I'm SO thankful that we jive.
  • the spin instructors at the gym for being encouraging and providing a good workout a few times a week.
  • the creative people at all the crafty companies (Hero Arts, American Crafts, My Mind's Eye, Inkadinkado...just to name a few) for inspiring me and feeding my cardmaking and origami habits by continually producing fabulous products.
  • the people I interact with in Etsyland, Twitterverse, and the blogosphere. I really appreciate your business and feedback.
  • Michael Bublé because listening to his music makes me happy.
  • Tom Welling because I love watching Clark Kent kick bad guy butt on Smallville.
  • dramatic (read: trashy) reality television, i.e. Real Housewives and MTV's The Real World, for the entertainment.
Now, it's your turn. What are you thankful for?

For tonight's card, I wanted to practice my ribbon tying skills. It took me a good 15-20 minutes to get this knot juuuust right, but when I got it, I got it! I seriously did a mental happy dance in my head. Ah, it's the simple things in life that make me happy. :)

Card Specs:

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Lipstick Red
Stamps: Fiskars- Just Between Friends (flowers)
Paper: Die Cuts with a View- Citrus (red, stripes), Die Cuts with a View (yellow stars)
Buttons: Favorite Findings in Ocean
Punches: Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
Ribbon: From A.C. Moore

Song of the day: "All I Do is Dream of You"- Michael Bublé...on repeat tonight. :)

Oh, whoops...Real Housewives is almost over! I guess I'll catch a rerun tomorrow or something. Niiight!

Great post- always something to be thankful for and it's good to remember them on average days instead of waiting for a holiday. Today I am thankful that my daughter is actually napping lol
