Thanksgiving



So tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, and I'm not a huge fan. I always hated turkey (even before I stopped eating meat) and I don't care for mashed potatoes or gravy. Oh, and I don't watch football. But I do like giving thanks. Here's a few things I'm thankful for this year:

-getting my art career started
-finishing my degree
-living in a place where I can keep my horse and have miles of trails and back roads to ride on
-making new friends online (hi guys!)
-planting a new garden in a milder climate - some of my pot marigolds are still blooming and it's almost December!
-being close enough to a large city that I have a lot of art opportunities but I can still live out in the woods

And plenty more. Speaking of art opportunities, I went into Seattle yesterday to talk to a jewelry store owner about exhibiting in March as part of the Fremont art walk and I'm now officially booked in. Should be fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yay! I'm so glad you like them! I'm very excited to get my goodies too :)

I'm happy that I'll have some time to prepare and even make something new especially to go in the space in March. I didn't really have a chance to do that for the last one so it will be fun to have a place in mind while I'm actually making a piece.
