To all of you who have made my face light up with a smile this year.
To you who have put a smile in my heart.
Thank you to the people who shine and give the world a better feeling each day.
Who make living just a bit more fun and happy
Thanks to those who keep the spirit of the holidays all year round.
As I mentioned before, I am very thankful for my friends and family.
Right now, I am sitting here in a virtual nest of art. Surrounded by a sea of miniature compositions.
I am sorting through the current exchanges that I am hosting and it just feels SO GOOD looking at all of the cool art work that has been sent in.
Some of the artists that join in are so full of great ideas!
To all of you from the States, Wishing you a Happy and Healthy holiday!

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into
enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order,
confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a
home, a stranger into a friend."
~ Melody Beattie (A quote I borrowed from her newsletter)
I love her, and her work.
Perfect for families with little ones.

Last night I started to work on some tiny felt purses for a presentation.
They say that art reflects your mood and deep thoughts.
The colors are more vibrant in person.
I will post the picture of it after I sew it all down and add in some decorative stitches.
I think "she" will become a pillow case.
Fun fun fun.
On another note... check out my little sidekick... ~*SourPuss*~

Rather, I have been creating and thinking... A LOT ... and thanks to ~*Suzanne*~ I am even more busy with my hands making simple pretty things... Eye candy galore!
FUN FUN FUN... DH is delighted at the collection building up on the piano.
It looks pretty!
Halloween was kinda cute this year. I wasn't around the whole night, but for the time that I was it was sweet.
Many of the kids just wore their own clothes though.
One little girl said to me (while I offered her a choice from an array of goodies on a tray), "I like the way you think!"
That was so cute! She looked like she was in the 3rd or 4th grade...
I offered rhinestone stud earrings, movable jointed animal rings (metal cast), lollipops, vellum quotes, the new Ferrero Rocher dark chocolate truffle "bon bons"..(YOU WILL LOVE THEM!!!) and tons of other boxed candy treats left by the landlord to hand out.
It was cute to hear kids walk away saying "wow this is the coolest!"
That made my night!
For me, the fun is in the sharing, giving, socializing an' meeting of neighbors.
I look at it all as a way to reach out an' make people smile.
It was a success!
