We live in such a generous neighborhood and could never eat it all of our Halloween candy so I wanted to find something useful to do with it. It looks like I could be baking a lot for our neighbors, teachers and friends in the next week or so.
Here's my card for the day. I used some handy dandy kraft cardstock, Unity's "Feel the Joy"stamp set, a little Basic Grey June Bug paper and a sketch from my Go-To Sketches book.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial
into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into
a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Today I'm thankful for...
1) Sugarland in my iTunes
2) parents who volunteer time at their kid's schools
3) family game night
