thank YOU!

In the midst of pie-baking, cranberry sauce making, and turkey prepping, i just wanted to let all of you know how incredibly thankful i am for you. I'm so grateful for your thoughtful comments, lively encouragement, helpful support, and friendship. This has been a whirl of a year for me, and being able to share much of it with you has made the sun shine a little brighter in my small corner of the world.
Thank you.

And speaking of stuffing...how about we ring in the holiday season with a stocking stuffer giveaway? Leave a comment and i'll pick a winner each day for 12 days starting December 1st. Winners will receive a surprise stocking stuffer! Could be fabric-ie, could be stationery-ie, could be scrapbook-ie but no matter what it is, it'll be fun!

Hope you have a festive Thanksgiving with your family and friends and celebrate the abundant goodness in your lives.

hugs,
kate
