Giving Thanks

Happy Autumn everyone!!!

This is my favorite time of year.... The weather finally cools enough here in Florida to actually get out and do stuff without being drenched in sweat and suffocating from the humidity. And there is always tons of great fairs, festivals, and open air markets to go to!!

I have been busy getting ready for a Fall Harvest Fair that I will be vending at later this month... Lots of Little Tweetie bird ornaments, wristlets, and other great stuff to give as Holiday gifts!

My new blogger friend Shannon over at Free Spirit Knits is celebrating the season with Thirty Days of Giving Thanks, and I have decided to participate!! So go check out her beautiful blog, and keep an eye out sometime this month for a chance to win one of my zippered wristlet clutches!!!

THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM FREE SPIRIT KNITS BLOG......






It's simple.

Take a moment each day in November and thank someone in your life.

Send a text, make a call, leave a post-it,
write an old fashioned letter...

Make eye contact.
Smile.
And say, "thanks."

It doesn't matter how you thank them. Simply think of someone in your life - each day - and tell them why you are thankful for them. Give them your thanks.

Thank thirty people in thirty days.

Can't think of thirty people?

Look more closely at the people you encounter in a day.

The postman.
The barista.
The nice man at the bank.
The woman who always stamps your parking ticket.
Your neighbor down the street.

Is there a local store owner who makes you feel welcome every time you shop?
Do you have a favorite sacker at the grocery store?
How about someone you work with that makes you laugh?
Is there a person from your past that you always wished you would have thanked?
Do you have a favorite hair stylist, or a massage therapist, or have you appreciated the listening ear of a good friend?
Did you ever thank your favorite teacher?
Has anyone helped change the course of your life?
What about someone you are really close to - like your kids or spouse - what thanks would you like to share with them?

If you choose to join us - let Shannon know! You can leave a comment on her blog, or email her at livefreely@mac.com.
