appreciation & happiness

happy thanksgiving yesterday everyone! i hope you all enjoyed your families, friends, and food.  i woke up with the most excited spirit and was ready to take on the day with an outlook of appreciation towards everything.  i think thanksgiving is such a great day.  its that one day a year where you're supposed to just take a step back and be thankful for everything you have.  wouldn't it be nice to wake up with that outlook everyday though?  i think im going to try doing that from now on.  to start this daily way of thinking, i thought i'd put together a list of things that i am especially thankful for.

i am thankful for my loving, incredible family.  we're a rather large group of people (more than fifty aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. when i combine my mom and dad's sides of the family) but they are some of the most wonderful people you'll ever meet.

i am thankful for the beautiful friends i have.  i couldn't ask for more supportive, amazing people to have in my life. 

i am thankful for the roof over my head.

i am thankful for the fact that i have a job.

i am thankful for my relationship with God.  although i may get a little lost sometimes, i know that my relationship with Him will always be there.

My newest endeavor

So I was thinking the other day about different craft projects and things i could start doing in my spare time. I thought about the fact that ive always wanted to learn to sew really well and i have always wanted to learn how to hand sew. I mean is hand sewing extremely difficult? I know it would be much more tedious and time consuming, but i feel like it would be a but easier than learning to sew by the machine considering i would be going at my own pace.

{I cant tell you how many times i have accidentally sewn too far because i pressed the pedal too hard}

I thought about what I could start making that would be cute and fun to do. So, after browsing through blogs (as I always do when I get time), and some brainstorming, I decided I am going to start making:


Keep an eye out !! Once I get the hang of it and have made a few, I'll make an etsy shop !!

PS checkout skunkboy creatures for someone of thee cutest hand sewn plush I have ever seen :)
