Thankful....

Lately, my time has been stretched to the limit.  My kids seem to need me more lately.  My job requires more of my time.  I still try to maintain my life in the crafty world.  Cortney's modeling is starting to take off a bit.  The weekends seem to be filled with family and friends.  I am certainly not complaining.  My life is full. Very full.  Just the way I like it.  Your sweet comments and e-mails make my heart happy.  I guess I'm in a good place in my life right now.  I'm going to enjoy each moment.  Because you know that life can always turn on a dime.  I have experienced that side of it before.....so I know.  

I know everyone is in a rush for Christmas. I've seen the stores, the commercials on TV.  Thanksgiving seems to be the lost holiday.  But I think it's important to slow down and be thankful for the life we have.  
I created this card with my Cricut.  I added glossy accents to the title to make it pop a bit more.  I added a rhinestone, seam binding, and a bit of glitter.......okay.... a lot of glitter. 
This weekend Kyle is hanging out with friends and going to the movies.  I am thrilled for him. I talk a lot about Cortney on this blog, but my son has had his share of struggles too.  He seems to have found his place in high school, and I am so glad. 
Cortney is modeling for a Chicago designer tomorrow.  I am nervous but very excited too!  
Brian and I are going on a double date on Saturday.  We are heading to the movies to see Argo. 
So all in all, a busy, full, happy weekend!

It's very pretty, and I am very happy for you being in a great time of your life... that stage is not easy to reach and hard to maintain, but once you are there, you should strive to stay there... HUGS...SK :)
