Count Your Blessings Part 2

….Then yesterday, Ann spent a little time putting the Gratitude for Days Simply Created Kit together. It’s not hard, but it does take some time and planning so you can create the best looking project.

That’s why we’re going to meet here at the house and make them this Saturday on Make a Difference Day. We think that these are the best gifts for any family so that they can concentrate on the good things that are happening to them and not the daily grind.

Diamond Santa

How do you think about Santa? Does he have real fur on? It’s his suit pretty expensive?

I wonder if he has a tailor.

Or do you think of Santa as a more down home in the North kind of guy? His suit is clean, but it’s seen many, many trips around the world.

And do you think his beard and hair are totally white? Or do they have a hint of gray?

Our Santa Christmas Card today has a couple kinds of bling. And the

Do you know where you’re going for Thanksgiving? Do you go the same place every year?

We don’t have family nearby so Ann & my favorite huMAN go to different places different yers. And some years, they stay home with me.

Step Up, Procrastinators

Are you a procrastinator? I must tell you a secret – Ann has shown those traits too.

Her creative genius usually shows at the 9 o’clock hour. She’s been thinking about something, but she doesn’t actually DO it until a day or two before. It just seems that she works a lot like me. Two speeds: Slow (much like asleep) & full speed ahead.

So today is our day dedicated to our procrastinators because it’s the last day for a few things.

And before I re-share those sale items, how about if I reveal a little secret?
