So Thankful for Small Blessings!

Its so hard to believe another school year has started. The first day was hard for me (as it is every year!) My daughter headed to Middle school, excited, but as she got out of the car, she said she was nervous! I knew she would be okay but as I silently drove my youngest Daughter to school I couldn't hold back the tears that streamed down my face. My Kids are so incredible and I am amazed that I have another Senior in the house and a now "another" new Middle Schooler! As the week has progressed, I've learned they ALL love their Teachers and are happy with the prospect of this exciting new year. That makes me so happy for them and I feel incredibly Thankful right now..I guess that's why I decided to do a couple of Thanksgiving cards! These cards were so fun to make. I loved distressing the little chipboard hearts and spritzing the flowers with Glimmer Mist for a sparkly antiqued look. The BoBunny paper works perfect with fall and Thanksgiving flavors and using Kraft card stock is perfect for the look!!

I'm off now to make some fresh salsa. My Neighbor brought over a tray filled with tomatoes, fresh garlic & peppers along with some more zucchini from her garden and it just Screams..."Salsa"!!


  1. Reading your blog brings back memories of my daughters going off to was the hardest. I am a single I was left alone while they move to Boston and Philadelphia. oldest daughter and I love school supplies, and we buy them even though we don't go to school.
