Gobble, Gobble…


With the Holidays quickly approaching, I will be taking some blogging breaks.  This is the first year my brother and sister-in-law (Kathy, who posts here regularly) will be selling Christmas trees from their Christmas Tree Farm.  You can check out their site here.  Eric and I are excited to be able to help them out on their opening weekend  – this coming weekend.  Therefore, I will not be posting during Thanksgiving break.


HOWEVER………..I will post another giveaway tomorrow…so check back!


This is a time of thanks so I ask you to remember those in need this time of year.  I know this is a difficult year for many families with the economy the way it is.  I’m sure there will be some without Thanksgiving dinner this year, so please remember to help stock your local food pantry.  I found this on the NBC4 site…

  • The Mid-Ohio Food Bank has had a 14% increase in demand from local pantries right here in Columbus.
  • 1 in 8 people in Central Ohio need help from a local food pantry in order to be able to eat.
  • If there are 1.3 Million people in Franklin County, 162,000 people need help to eat. That is enough people to fill Ohio Stadium, Crew Stadium, Nationwide and Value Center Arena!
  • One third of the people served by the Mid-Ohio Food Bank have to choose between food and shelter and half are forced to choose between eating and utility bills.

This is only in central Ohio, I’m sure there are so many more in your area of the world. 


On a lighter note…check out Julie’s cute tabletop decor here – made with Jillibean Soup papers!


Did anyone see the Sarah Mclachlan/Pink duet on the AMA’s the other night?  Gave me chills.  Love Sarah and loved the harmony with Pink! 


Want a quick chuckle…check out these “DeMotivators” posters from Despair, Inc.  I like the one about blogging…

Never before have so many people with so little to say said so much to so few.

How true is that – ha!


Check out these cute, cute turkey bibs from Etsy seller Charliz.


Like I said…random.  Just keeping you on your toes!


Have a great day!

Here’s a layout I worked on during our retreat at Zane Trace Inn.  The journaling was created using the “About” page from this blog.  So, the layout is all about “me”.  I used “Shittake” from the Cream of Mush line and created the die cut from another piece of patterned paper (I think I used one from Making Memories).  Also, the red frame around “me” was created using 2 punches….one large scallop punch (from EK Success) created the large scallop and then I used a smaller punch (Stampin’ Up) to create the inner hole.  The red looks a bit flourescent in the photo – sorry…it doesn’t look that crazy in person.  I added a journaling sprout last but have not journaled anything on it yet.  Any ideas what I should put on it?  I was going to put “36” (for my age) but it didn’t work with the “about” journaling.  Any other ideas?  Any cute charms or new buttons or fun do-dads I could use?

Thanks for looking!
