I am thankful

As Thanksgiving nears, I think of the many things in my world that i have to be thankful for. My mother, who sends the most thoughtful packages that arrive at least every other month. they are basically like care packages you would get at camp! Yesterday we received Grandma Hannah'a Banana Bread. My husband, who cooks us nice meals to enjoy together - a change from the cheese + crackers + fruit that i usually eat when he isn't around. I'm also thankful to have his hands helping me out with the business this week. I'm thankful for family and friends we have in our lives that are surrounded by and also connected with thanks to cell phones, text messages, facebook, emails, myspace, flickr, blogging, and...did i miss anything? I'm thankful to be so busy that I have to remind myself to breathe! And I am thankful for my health as a couple of people near and dear are constantly in my thoughts as they are trying to heal. And I'm thankful for our 2 kitties, fattie + blackie, that just want to cuddle, eat + sleep. It's a beautiful life and there is so much to be thankful for. Below are a few pieces i've created this week to help promote the Secret Society Sale which is this coming Sunday, November 30. There will be 35 local artists participating and each will be donating 10% of their profits to the Oregon Food Bank, because no one should be hungry. Did you know that Oregon is the 3rd hungriest state in the nation? Check out the site for the full details.
