The theme is My Thanksgiving Blessings, each one of the amazing ladies in the hop has created a project centered around the blessings they have had this past year. With that intro I'll explain a little about my projects; since we've been super blessed this year I was only able to narrow all of my ideas down to these two. The first is a photo block, in order to explain this one I'll have to give a little bit of our history. My DH lost his job almost 2 years ago - don't worry, he was able to find a new one . . . we just had to move to a different state. The company I worked for allowed me to work from home for a little bit, but eventually they let me go as well. During the last two years we've really come to realize that our family comes first. We always knew that our children came first; we just started giving of ourselves and our time to our children instead of gifts. So to celebrate everything we have, I have decided to make a photo block each year (I think it might be fun to go back and do this with some older pictures). It just has the highlights from this year - our little girl going into kindergarten and our little boy fishing. The other sides have my little girl playing at the park and my little boy shooting a BB gun with my DH. I put the year '2010' on the top and all of our names on the bottom. I didn't show the faces of my little ones just to be safe (and yes, her hair curls in ringlets naturally . . . it's OK, a lot of people are jealous!!)!!
This is my second project. After we moved I was able to meet some of the most amazing people that live in my little town. There are many of them that will do and give everything they have to help someone. I made this card was made for one of my friends that lives near me! She is such a kind and giving person and I just wanted to let her know how grateful I am for her!
