Rooted in Thanksgiving

Standard

This month, we are entering a season to be thankful. And, for the craziiness that has been 2020, that may be hard to come by. But, the deeper we look, I am learning to be thankful for so many things, things that I don’t even notice until perhaps they are absent.

I am so thankful for my family and this shut down gave me time to REALLY connect with them. We also were able to build deeper relationships with neighbors and friends around us. I have seen in SO MANY WAYS how God’s divine hand of protection has been on my family and I am so grateful. I want to take this month with my family to really focus on thanksgiving…to be ROOTED in THANKFULNESS. Though it should be an every-day-all-the-time occurrence, I want to be sure to pause and really dwell on the things we have to be thankful for.

This leaf image comes from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which is one of my most favorite super universal stamp sets. I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze for the colors.

I hope we can use the fact that ‘life’ has slowed us down this season and so we can dwell in the stillness, the slowness, and focus on what really matters. Happy Thanksgiving to you. I am thankful for all of you too!

Happy 2019!!

Standard

2019 is HERE! I cannot believe how fast it came upon us! I am trying to become more intentional as time seems to speed up…because I feel that the memories go by so fast.

For the calendar this year I am doing something that is a break from the ‘normal’ Happy New Year page… I wanted it to be more of a resolution or a mantra for how to approach the year. AND…I got to use one of my favorite stamp sets…Rooted In Nature.

I fell in love with this simple set. It has a variety of trees and leaves and can make just about ANYTHING. The coordinating framelits also make cutting the images out a breeze.

For this month I used (left to right) blackberry bliss, berry burst, and rich razzleberry. The cardstock background is Berry Burst. The velum overlay has the sentiment that also comes with the Rooted In Nature set.

Happy 2019 to you. I hope it is a year of intentional memories and time with your loved ones.

I also have just a handful of these calendars left! If you would like one, leave a comment and I will contact you about getting one to you!
