Happy Thanksgiving

If you have been following me long enough, you know that last year I did a special series for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun but this year I am too busy so I will just make a quick list here:

1) For Jesus saving me
2) For the awesome family I am a part of
3) Having my sewing machines in working order
4) Getting a vacation on Thanksgiving week: I really needed one
5) Being in a country where freedom is valued
6) Being in a country where people are willing to sacrifice for that freedom
7) God blessing my Etsy shop
8) Having all this technology available, but not necessarily needing it
9) For almost being finished with my Associate's degree
10) All you awesome people!

Also, there won't be anymore posts this week: enjoying time with family!

What's on your list? Leave a comment and share it with all of us!

Shop Announcement: Cyber Monday

Special announcement! I FINALLY HAVE MY SEWING MACHINE BACK!!!! YAY! Confetti, dancing in the streets, parades....well, at least it's like that in my head.

I am super excited (if you couldn't tell) to have my machine back. Also, be on the look out for a special coupon for the shop on Cyber Monday!!

Craft Sale

I had the craft sale last weekend. Special shout out to Laura and Jodie for coming to see me. Other than that the sale was really a bummer.

The weather was really cold and nasty so I don't think that a lot of people were willing to be out in the cold. So I did okay sales-wise but it could have been better. 

Special thanks to my mom for sticking it out with me! (I seriously owe her a coffee!)

My dog is officially spoiled rotten!

Normally my dog will eat whatever you happen to offer him, with the exception of a few vegetables. In fact, he has become quite good at begging. He will stare at you with his big brown eyes weakening your resistance. If that doesn't work then he sniffs sadly at your knees. Failing that, he will lay his chin on your leg with a plop. 

The other day we had dinner at McDonald's and had a few leftover chicken nuggets. We put them in the fridge. Yesterday, my sister went to give Pepper, our dog, a treat and she remembered that there were chicken nuggets in the fridge. 

Normally Pepper just gobbles up any kind of Chicken. Well when Emily went to give him a nugget he simply took it from her and set it on the floor. 

This confused my sister and she asked my dad what was wrong with Pepper. To make a long story short, Emily had to warm the Chicken nuggets up in the microwave before the dog would eat any Chicken nuggets. So in short, our dog is spoiled rotten. :)

New Addiction: The Fat Quarter Shop

So as most of you know...I have an addiction.

That addiction is fabric. In fact, I used to laugh when people said that they loved just to feel fabric. I would think "That's CRAZY!" But now...I completely get it!

I was reading a blog the other day and they were having a giveaway from The Fat Quarter Shop. Well, I started to browse and much to my surprise they had a lot of fabric that I liked. Still some of it was a bit out my price range, but who doesn't like to dream. Anyway, some of my favorite pieces are:

The Orange Mr. Monopoly fabric
(which comes in many different colors! Yay!)

The Brambleberry Ridge Turquoise Knots and Loops 
(So pretty)

30's playtime Betty's Pink Cherries
(I have seen this is on a blog where the lady made hankies out of it. Again, super cute!)

Hope you enjoyed feeding the addiction. What are some of your favorite pieces??
