So Very Thankful

It’s been a crazy-wonderful week for me.  After an incredible day of sales on the first day of the Online Extravaganza, I had accumulated all the points I needed to earn Stampin’ Up!’s Grand Vacation – a 2016 Cruise in the Mediterranean.  How cool is that!?!  I have worked really hard to earn the trip, and I couldn’t be more happy.  What a wonderful business to be in – and I love each and every one of you for supporting me as customers, team members and blog readers.  Thank you all!

cruiseThat’s a lot to be thankful for just before Thanksgiving, huh?  I’ll continue being thankful tomorrow with lots of delicious food.  🙂  All the grocery lists are checked off, and the food is tidily packed away in the refrigerator or pantry.  Some things are soaking in stuff, and other things are ready to mix with other things – that’s about what I know about how a Thanksgiving meal is prepared.  I’m all ready for the cooking and eating to begin tomorrow.

Today I’ve prepared a quick show of some of the Thanksgiving cards I’ve shared with you over the past couple of months.  Enjoy:
