Turkey Day!

Well, it is done. I cooked all day long and we have stuffed ourselves. Unfortunately our turkey was a little dry. Next year I will for sure be doing things a bit differently.

Besides the food, today I really do think of all the things I am thankful for. Here are a few:

My family is definitely at the top. Seriously, what would I do with out Philip and Summer? And of course the rest of my family too.
Spending fun time with family
Pumpkin Pie which I will eat later.
Being creative, especially when it is going to make someone happy.
A clean house.
A comfortable bed to sleep in, and fresh air coming through my window.
Trips to visit family.

Ok, I could keep going on, however, I will spare you. Anyhow I just want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving from our family.

Check out my craft blog for my giveaway.

Purses, Kitchen Towels, and an Auction

This is what I have been up to in October.

OK, I know I should not be like this with my own work, but I simply can't help it. I absolutely adore these purses, and I think they turned out so fun and cute. I need to make one for myself now. I do need an upgrade from the one I am currently using.

So you may ask why I made them if I am not even planning on keeping one. Well, I have been making them as a donation to some dear friends of mine who are doing an online auction to raise funds for their two sweethearts who both need transplants.

I made the purses and the towel sets. I have also included just a few of my favorites from what is being offered to bid on for the auction. Check them out below, and then head here to see all the other awesome items up for bid.

The auction starts tomorrow November 2ND at 8:00 am and will end November 16Th at midnight.

So if you want one of these adorable purses, or any of my towels, simply check out the auction where they will be up for bid.
Pussy Willow Kitchen Towel Set

Tootie Frootie in Citrus
Cattails Kitchen Towels
Resting Bird Kitchen Towels
Standing Fern Kitchen Towels
Retro Meets Mod Kitchen Towels

I am not sure who donated this, but I think it is very cute. How fun to have a spiced up wipes container.

Please check out all the items up for bid. They will make great Christmas and birthday gifts and will also be helping out a family in need.


Halloween was great. I at least had a costume ready for Summer. I repurposed a black velvet floral dress and added a lot of frills to it. She loved it and I loved that she was happy.

We went to the ward trunk or treat and now have a ton of candy. The weather was perfect this year. It was not hot at all, in fact we have had mild weather for the last couple weeks. I hope it stays this way.

So, Halloween is over, and we are ready for Christmas. I started playing Christmas music this morning. Just kidding. I just thought I would pretend to be like the stores. Just wait until tomorrow and they will for sure be playing those jingle tunes for Christmas. Of course the Christmas decor has been out since June.

Here are a couple pictures I took of Summer before her school costume parade.
