Thankful for my Crafts Blog Hop

Hello my creative friends!!!!!

If your looking for the Marine Corps Birthday Hop click HERE

I wanted to have this hop so that myself and a couple of my friends can share what makes us thankful when it comes to crafts. We all have our reasons for crafting and we all love what we do and we love being inspired by other friends, blogs, videos, and places or things. I have thought and thought and THOUGHT about what I can make that will show what I love about my crafts but the problem is that everything I make has my heart and soul wrapped in it. You can look anywhere on my blog, my facebook or my youtube and see my heart in everything.

I am thankful to be able to make the things I make, to have the things that I have and to be able to share and express. I know that life is not perfect and there are many things that can happen so being able to capture moments of my family and scrapbook them so that my kids can always take a part of me with them is icing on the cake!!!

When I create something it is a one-of-a-kind and while there are times that a sketch or something inspires me I always make everything my own. It makes me happy to know that if anything should ever happen to me my kids will forever have their personalized pages with my writing and my creativity. I will be alive in my work and their hearts forever and when they have their kids they can show my grandchild just how much I love my family.

I know that everyone I know who does not craft completely understands why I am so passinate about what I make and what I have. I make use of what I have and I have a lot!!! I have a youtube channel showing off my craft room...

I hope that you have an idea of what makes me thankful when it comes to my crafts. I would love to meet new crafty friends and if you live near Chicago or will be in the area and want to CREATE together please feel free to contact me!!!! This is a short hop but the members of this hop are A M A Z I N G!!!!!!!!!!

Your next stop is my creatively talented friend Gloria and trust me you will love her work!!! She is so good at everything she does!!!

Thank you so much for your time and attention and please so your love with comments to everyone and you could win some special candy from me!!!
