Thankful Thursday v.12

Howdy folks. This week has been wild but has offered up a lot to be thankful for. Among other things...

The 2010 Frances Crafeteria.
I'm was so so so excited when I heard that I got into this uh-mazing holiday craft fair! It is pretty much the best craft fair here in Phoenix and, in it's 5th year, there was certainily stiff competition for the 40 spots available (over 150 applicants!). I am sooo honored to be included in this! The ladies of Frances are SUCH an inspiration. I hope I make some friends tomorrow night. If you are local come visit me!

My new position at work. I got moved to accounting! It seems like all desk jobs are pretty lame and boring but hey- at least I am learning something a bit more useful than what I was doing before. Plus the ladies I get to work with are super funny.

Grandpa sweaters. One of the things I am making for the Frances Crafeteria is upcycled, embellished sweaters from cozy grandpa sweaters (plus cute bowls out of doilies filled with vintage ornaments and upcycled, embellished fur collars). I can't stop wearing 'em. They are so comfortable.

Long walks. Since beginning in accounting, me and ma ladies have been walking each day. It's so nice to get away from that boring desk and take a little walk. Do you do anything to break the monotony in your job?

I hope you have a lot to be thankful for this week.
