What to do next..

Ever since the show on Saturday - I have got the I want to make stuff BUG...I started 4 different projects yesterday just for fun.  And I am still working on my nieces quilt. 
I got the sweetest comment on my last post, and I want to post back to her but I can't figure out how to do it : ).  So thank you, it was soo sweet of you. 
I also started reading this book about positive thoughts, and I am supposed to list 5 things I'm thankful for each day...so lucky your - here it goes..
- I am thankful for my great friends who inspire me, who LISTEN to me, and counsel me, and they still love me, you know who you are!
- I am thankful for my wonderful sisters, Laurel and Shirley
- I am thankful and blessed with all my children - Noelle, Natalie, Nadia, Noah, Nina & Nathan - even when they drive me crazy - I love them all...
- I am thankful for my husband Jason, who still has no idea what he signed on for, but still comes home from work and loves me.
- I am thankful for ibuprofen, because I have had a headache since last night, and it feels better : )


  1. I am Thankful for my Friends too... and for Depends when we're all together!
