so thankful today!!
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you keep a detailed list next to you at all times, so you can stay on schedule? ie…keep those plates spinning so that nothing gets broken…
Today I've actually crossed most everything off of my list of to-dos and as I reflect on this past week, I realize that I have seriously enjoyed every minute of it! Even with my wild schedule, my crazy daily to-do lists that make my darling friends sigh and sit down, I've embraced while doing! I've been grabbing moments of time during my week to just sit back and think, "I am loving this!!"
One of the aspects of this new business that I've embarked on (when does it stop being a "new" business? 'cause I'm milking it for all it's worth!! LOL!!) is always praying for whoever buys/gets whatever it is I'm making. There is something uniquely amazing and soul-filling about putting the focus on someone else while creating! My darling friend, Krista, has 5 girlies who will all receive an advent calendar this year. And each of those girlies have been prayed for in the making of those calendars. What an heirloom for them! and what a blessing for me!! This prayer time keeps my focus on what's important…and my heart and soul are thankful…truly thankful.
So I have two winners for the pumpkin giveaways!!
Denise, a newsletter subscriber won & Christine, a visitor to my Greatwood Gifts Galore show and new newsletter subscriber also won one!!
The moral of the story is…
I'll be giving away a sweet stuffed Owl at the next Craft show…

As you can see, I was quite inspired by Quilt Market. So much so, that I took my girlies to Quilt Festival this week. They loved it, and they even learned a new technique, as did I!! Silk Screening!! sooo fun!
