Thanksgiving - more than an American tradition

When I lived in the USA, one of the holidays I loved the most was Thanksgiving.  Sure it's on a bizarre day, the 4th Thursday of November, but it has so much going for it.

It's all about spending time with your family and reflecting on what we have to be thankful for in our lives.  The other upsides are a rocking turkey dinner with all the trimmings and the next day is Black Friday, the best shopping day of the year!

Even though we don't celebrate the holiday in Australia, I still like to think about what I am thankful for.  The list is as long as my arm and starts always with my darling husband Russell and our large and loving family.

Whatever your doing on Thursday, whether it's eating turkey or going to work, have a great day and take a moment to count your blessings.  Happy Thanksgiving!


Today's post is brought to you by the letter A.....

as in ADSL!!  So happy that ADSL was finally available in our area, because I have to tell you that wireless broadband sucked big time.  The cost was horrific, I'm now paying the same price but have 33 times more usage available.  Still not as good as $39.95 for unlimited usage, but I don't live in the US anymore but still happy Telstra got on board!

Just sharing some more loveliness.  I am surprised that I was able to get away with the flowers on a boy LO, really think it works. 

Tried quilling for the first time to satisfy a challenge at The Scrappers Outlet.  Bit fiddley, but like how it looks.

Thanks for looking!

Trying to make up for lost time

well at least that's how it feels because I've been scrapping like crazy.  All the supplies are unpacked and I have found homes for most items.  Here's a couple more I knocked out today.

 The sad face on the first LO is all about how bad he wants a dog.  If it wasn't for the fact I would get in huge trouble with my SIL, he'd be getting a puppy for xmas this year.

Thanks for looking!
