Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful and blessed. Our recent move has made us just minutes away from family. That is something Patty and I have looked forward to for more than 40 years. We always knew we would move back one day and it feels wonderful that it has happened.

I am thankful that I have the opportunity to spend my days working on the Blog. I love what I do. I wake up every morning knowing that I will get the chance to be creative. 

I am thankful to all of you who spend time with me here on my blog. I never expected to still be writing this blog 14 years after I started it. All of you make that possible and I am grateful.

I am thankful for my best friend, Holly. She takes me for walks and always meets me at the door. You pet owners know how special a friendship with a pet is. She always makes me smile. Except when she misses her pee-pad. It's funny. Sometimes she gets her front feet on the pad and does not remember that her back feet are not on the pad. :)

I am thankful for my daughter, Kellie, and her husband, Shane. They are both caring and loving people. They are respectful and hard-working. I love you guys.

I am thankful for my wife, Patty. We have been together since we were 16 years old. I am lucky that she kept me around because she is way smarter than me. My life would have been so much different without her. She spends way more time caring about others than she does herself. If someone is in need they can count on her to step up. Patty, I love you and am looking forward to all the new things we have to look forward to in our new home.

I will probably take a couple of days off. Happy Thanksgiving.

Here is a second pattern I was working on. Since I am going to take a couple of days of I thought I would go ahead and post this one also.

Order your Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns:

Personalized Christmas Ornament patterns are $1 each with a five ornament minimum. Each additional name adds an extra $1 to the total. 5 ornaments = $5. 20 ornaments = $20.

After you place the order I will complete the patterns and email them to you with a payment invoice. You have to be completely satisfied before you pay. 

I do not offer blank patterns. This is one of the ways I support what I do. I ask that you please not use the template to create your own custom name patterns.

My goal is to have the orders complete in three days. I will keep you posted if there are delays.
