...and winter begins

I snagged a treasury in honor of winter. It's a bit blustery here today, for Tucson weather anyway. Well, I'm dreaming of white snow and the scent of pine. Hope you'll visit and click.

Thank you

Photograph by TraciM

So, the holiday season is upon us again. For me the holidays are about family and friends, warm comforting food, cuddling inside, and remembering to be thankful for everything I have in my life. Being thankful is something I try to remember year-round, but there's something about this time of year that brings it all into light. So without further ado, I'd like to share a few things that I am grateful for each and everyday, be it cliché or not:

* A loving and supportive family.
* Kind and caring friends.

* A roof over my head and food to eat.

* Some of the daily comforts I may take for granted like clean running water, electricity, and heat.
* The gift of and desire for creativity.
* Some of the luxuries of living in this day and age like the internet, a powerful computer, a car that gets me places, air travel to visit my family, and a digital camera to capture the world around me.
* All of you out there who inspire me with your work, leave me comments and encouragement, and spread the love.

A great day!

Lots of great happenings today!

First off, I'm so excited to be the featured shop on Papernstitch today. Brittni is a fabulous curator and her site has a hefty readership. I'm completely flattered to have my work on her site. If you haven't seen it yet, I'd love for you to pop over to Papernstitch to check it out.

Secondly, I made my second sale! And it was from someone who saw me on Papernstitch.

And last but not least, I've been featured in this gorgeous treasury by unflappableproducts over at Etsy.

Blissful Monday - A Day Late

It's amazing how time flies. I missed Blissful Monday last week and yesterday. Yesterday was the first day at my new job as a highway engineer (the last thing I though I would be doing right now)...wish me luck! So here's my belated bliss list:

*Cuddling up with someone I love

*Chocolate Peanut Butter Haagen Dazs Ice Cream

*Fall hikes in the desert

*A part-time job to bring in a little bit of money

*Finding goodies at garage sales

What's on your bliss list??

"The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend. I have no wealth to bestow on him. If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward. Is not friendship divine in this?" - Henry David Thoreau

Blissful Monday

Last week Jess Gonacha Swift started a Blissful Mondays series at her blog, Treasuring, and I decided to play along. I love the idea of starting out each week with a list of things I'm thankful for. Here's my Bliss List for this week:

* Home-made soup with lentils and green peppers.

* Sleeping in late on a Monday.

* 80 degree weather in October.

* Winning these beautiful earrings in Ting Low's giveaway. Her jewelry is so beautiful and feminine. Here is some more of her work.
