Do you know how glorious it feels to wake up on Monday morning and know that you don't have to go to work?? While I was laying in my bed being thankful for one more day to relax, I remembered why we have this holiday - Memorial Day. It's not another shopping holiday. This is a day to stop and reflect and be thankful for the service men and women who have so graciously gave their lives to keep us safe! Noone in my immediate family is part of any military but I have friends who are either married to someone or who have a brother or sister. We've lost several Army men in my community recently due to the wars occurring right now. And while I may not have known them personally, I can still mourn with my community and feel the loss of a "family member". So take a moment today, wherever you are, to just stop and say thank you. I don't care what your politics are. The bottom line is the step these folks have taken to serve our country. That's a big deal.
Alright... while that was important and serious, it's time to transition to fun!! Come back tomorrow for the SFTIO kit reveal! It's a good one... with an intense emotion that I'm sure will be extremely therapeutic to get on a scrap page. Sneaks have begun over on the message board. :) I can't wait to get my first kit to play along with!! They are packed full of such great product.
Hmm... and do I smell a winner around here? Thanks so much to all who stopped by humble little blog and left some love! I read every single one and love that I'm amongst some fellow "handmadeembellishmentstitchinggoodoletimes" ladies! And whoever said my stars looked like they were cut in my Sil... well.... you made me blush!!
Are you ready for the winner of the lovely prize pack of goodness I had?
Using my pal random.org here you go
