Thankful Thursdays

Yikes, I haven’t done a “Thankful Thursday” in awhile!  It isn’t because I haven’t been thankful, to be sure…  But now, wait.  Before I get down on myself for that, I have to remind myself that these little Blog Ideas are to “serve” me, not weigh me down, and that I don’t need to dwell on any “shoulds”!  Right??  Okay!


Today I am thankful for a funny little thing…  I am thankful that a lot of my art supplies don’t go bad.  J  I have had paint get rock-hard in tubes and have had to throw out gobs of $$$ in the trash, and I just hate that, don’t you??

But today I am thankful that my little beads and ribbons and glitter wait patiently, sometimes for years for me to get inspired and pull them out and use them.  And I did that today, and I am so happy that they were there, waiting for me, just as good as the day I bought them.  (!)

So, today’s little piece, what I generally refer to as a “piecelet”, incorporates my new Casual Caps, written in neon green with a gel pen, and accented with lime green and chocolate ribbon and “bejeweled” with light green crystals.  ♥

I guess that’s a new category for me:  no glitter, glitter and “bejeweled”.  Hahaha

  3. Hello from Iowa! So happy to find your lovely blog and YOU! I totally agree about the supplies with no expiration date! Hooray! I've lately been on a kick, where I am bound and determined to use up what I have before I buy more. So far so good, but I'm itching to spend again. Ha.

  4. Love those casual caps! This is a great card and yes, I hate it when the paint dries up to a rock!
