Oh My, Pumpkin Pie!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!   I know that it is near the end of the holiday, but I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!  So many things have been happening here that make me truly thankful for the loved ones that I have in my life (I will share a little more below).  Because of everything going on, I haven't had much time to make things to share with you.  I do have this fun layout that I created last year for the Cricut Circle magazine of my two oldest enjoying their Pumpkin Pie a few years ago.  

So, as I mentioned at the first of this post, some of the things that are going on around here are that we have lost two members of our family this last week, my cousin in a tragic freak accident and also with my mother-in-law passed away late last night.  All this on top of the fact that we are trying to pack up and move a considerable distance in the next week and a half.   I am so very emotionally drained at this point.  I haven't had much mojo to craft even if I did have the time to, thankfully I do have some projects that I haven't shared here on my blog that I get to share over the next couple of weeks along with a couple of DT assignments.  ;)

Also, our funds are running low with this move and all the traveling we have been doing with funerals and such, so if there is something on my FOR SALE page that you are interested in buying from me, I would be happy to pack it up and ship it to you.  I do have a paypal account, so that could be done quickly.  I will be adding much more over the next week or so.  I have over 150 Stampin' Up! stamp sets that I am wanting to sell, too.  Most, if not all, are retired and so if there is a set that you are looking for, EMAIL ME and let me know.....I might just have it in my stash.  ;)

I am also so very thankful to you, my blog readers.  I love getting on and seeing the comments you leave for me.  They help help to brighten my day inspire me to create more to share.   Thanks so much!!
