Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my U.S. friends. I hope that you will take a moment today to remember all the reasons that you are blessed. I have many reasons to feel so blessed today: family, friends, a home, a job, 2 design teams this year, and the list goes on and on. I am especially thankful for all my crafting friends and everything that I have learned from all of you. So in this spirit if thankfulness I want to invite you to participate in the Delightful Challenges challenge
this week. This week is Flower Power. My project this week is an adorable little ornament for one of my co-workers.
This cute little guy is Pickles the Penguin
