Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been really pre-occupied lately with the birth of my new niece, Gabriella.  I was my Sister's coach and helped her bring this sweet little girl into the world on November 18th.

Not only was I Mom's birth coach but I am also her Godmother!  I just love this little girl, she's already got quite a personality.  Gabriella is my third niece, and soon, I'll have a second nephew too!  My other Sister is expecting in January!  Lots of babies around!!

We found out just recently that my Grandmother is doing very well.  Her cancer has subsided and her outlook is extremely good! 

In my professional life, I found out on November 14th that the Scrapbook Cupboard was going to stay open!  She had announced that she was closing and I had already taken an interview and had scheduled another one.  What a stressful experience to go to job interviews.  I hadn't had to do one in years!  5 years actually and I thought I might have been a little rusty.  Well, no matter for now.  Bev has decided to keep  the store open!  Whew!  This will allow me to keep doing the classes I do, plus do all the behind the scenes administrative stuff that I love to do too!

Donna and I will still be working closely together and actually we met with a graphic designer this week.  I won't say more but that we are cooking up some good stuff!

Today we are kicking off a Dreamy Thursday blog event with Dreamweaver Stencils! Every Thursday, the members of the Dreamweaver Dream Team will be showing some samples on their blogs.  I feel like I haven't been home more than an hour in the past two weeks.  So please forgive this week's submission, it's a repeat from one earlier this year.  Tomorrow will be my crafting day but that will be a day late for this.  Perhaps I'll post that tomorrow too!



With some black matte paste, I pasted the sign.  On some wood, I pasted the Season's Greetings and then cut it out to fit it on the sign.  The 'snowy' part on the bottom is just the Dreamweaver paste that's been piled on without any stencil.

Oh boy!  I know that it's not new but thankfully I have something to share today.  Come on back tomorrow, I'll post something then!  And next Thursday, come on back and I will be up to date on my crafting!

There's lots to be Thankful for this year!  Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Kim what a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving with a new little baby in the family. Your card is fabulous and with all you have going I'm surprised you even had time to do a post. It sounds like you received lots of good news this week. The interview thing is really hard I know, at least you can stop now. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

What a sweet baby! Makes the holidays even more fun. I love the sign post stencil. I didn't realize there was a sign post. I'll have to look into that one - I really like it.

What a sweetie, just waiting to be spoiled by her Godmother. The sign post is such a versatile stencil and the snow drift is a nice touch.
