Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator!

Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Blessings and Gratitude

Isn't it awesome that we set aside a day specifically to focus on our blessings but isn't it sad that we don't do that all the time?  Ah... Thanksgiving!  It means so much to so many. I was thinking over some of my most memorable Thanksgivings; trips to Big Timber to Grandma's,  surprise visit home to my folks when I was in college, many feasts with treasured friends wherever we have lived, the first Turkey dinner I cooked, a recent one in Rapid City (my home town) where all of my siblings and their families were able to attend and now, this year, a first Thanksgiving in a new house. I love that my kids are old enough to help and can't wait to just be together.   For those of you who have some sad associations with this holiday, I am there with you too. Last year at Thanksgiving, my mom was still alive but soon after, she really started declining and was gone by January 2nd. I'm anticipating some wonderful nostalgia tinged with loneliness for her. I hope you have some way special to spend this wonderful holiday.

I thought I would share some Thanksgiving related cards I have made over the past few years. The first one is from this year and the rest are a random collection. Enjoy the inspiration!

Hope that puts in you the mood to be thankful while you are being creative!  Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
