An old tradition

Before I get to my little diddy I was soooo excited about this last piece I did that I had to show all of you straight away.. so with no delay…



I just thought it was to die for. I finished it yesterday as I was playing Cinderella in the bathroom. Let me tell you, I might not be the tidiest person, but my biggest peeve is a dirty bathroom. So now it is spotless and I can feel comfortable having guests over.

Anyway, I love how the crackle came out I love the new snow sparkles I bought. And I am sure some of you noticed, not only are there two people in this one but one is a boy! I know right! First time for everything. Gives me the warm fuzzies!

So onto the tradition…. About 4 years ago my college roommate Jen and the boys that lived next to her Tom and Gus started this tradition on Thanksgiving. Before we would go home for break we would all get together and eat our first Thanksgiving dinner together! I know the coolest tradition ever. Well the tradition carried on long after we graduated and ever year we have our Thanksgiving feast before Thanksgiving. Of course things are different now, Tom and Jen are engaged, I'm still not engage (that stayed the same… haha) and the biggest change is that is got bigger and bigger….23 people this year! HAHA.. I know right unreal. But the more the merrier and as always it is a wonderful time to reconnect after sometimes not talking to each other for months, some of us only see one another on this very occasion and then sadly part ways the rest of the year. But without fail we always have the best time with our greatest friends. This Saturday is sure to be no exception I am looking very forward to it.

I have a lot of cleaning left to do tonight and then my brother and his fiancĂ© will be in tomorrow so unfortunately no art… wa wa waaaaaaa.. (Unless I can't stand to be without it!) But I will make sure I post some pictures of the festivities and list some eBay items and transfer some over to Etsy. Crossing my finger on that one, you all know how I roll.

In closing, this is a perfect time to think of what you are thankful for. Turn it into positive energy and do once nice thing for someone else. Even if it is insignificant to you it could mean the world to some one else. Pay it forward loves.

Warmest hugs from NY on this extremely cold day.

This is so sweet. The crackle looks great. I think it's very special you connect with your friends at least once a year. You go have a big ole' time.
