Hi Everyone! It's November, and the time for a new challenge. I have volunteered to host for Pia and Ash this month because they are both swamped with other commitments right now. For November we'll have a challenge, then in December we'll just have a "Holiday Open House" thread so we can keep in touch during the busy holiday season, but there will not be a challenge.

Okay, so what is our challenge this month??? I had a hard time with this one until the most obvious one finally worked its way into my head!

There are two twists - a theme first, and of course that is GRATEFUL. In the US we celebrate our Thanksgiving in November, and our friends in Canada celebrated theirs a few weeks ago. But you don't have to live in one of these two countries to be thankful, or grateful, for the blessings in your life!

So, first is theme, and it has to show, tell about, describe in some way, someone or something for which you are grateful. My example tag has a picture of my hubby and I, but yours doesn't have to have a picture. It can have a list, a poem, a paragraph, whatever way you can tell us about your gratitude for this person, place, thing . . . whatever it is!

The second twist, is embellishments and elements. If you'll notice on my sample tag, I've got the tag itself, the picture with double mats, 2 diecut flowers - each with 3 layers, inking and bling, 2 chipboard pieces inked and heat embossed with green embossing powder, 5 buttons, 3 fall leaf stickers, 2 ribbons, and jute twine in 2 places. So use a lot of STUFF on your tag, and let each thing represent the bounty of blessings in your life! You don't have to tell about them, but just allow that for each element you add to your tag, that is one more thing for which you are thankful.

My tag is in fall colors simply because the picture is a fall picture and I wanted to pick up those colors. Your tag can be any colors or theme that you want, and I mean ANYTHING! Your tag can be any shape you want as well.

So, that's it for this month! You can find more pictures of my tag on my BLOG.

Everyone have a great month, and go forth and make those tags!!!!

Good Morning! I'm off to take my mom on her rounds for the 'first of the month shop-a-thon'! Actually she shops for the month and pays bills, too. Anyway, it always takes all day, and I made her get an earlier start today because it now gets dark by 6 pm and I don't want to be driving home in the dark.

So, I'll catch up with y'all (and the first post) this evening or, if I'm too worn out, in the morning. Have a great day!!! Becky

OK....I'm gonna go make the beds and do some cookin'....I've played all morning and made my tag.

This came out just like I visualized it. As I added in the 'keywords' section, I have experienced anaphalactic shock twice, was hit by a car while crossing a street, and developed blood clots in my lungs during surgery recently. So, when I say I am thankful for each sunrise, I mean that with every ounce of my being. Thanks for lookin'!

Hey Linnny, I found THIS recipe the other day and remembered it when you asked about recipes. I saw another one too, and when I find it I'll send you a link to it, too. Good luck! Becky

Hey everybody! I typed this once earlier and lost it - don't know why, but . . .

Here it is again!

Yesterday went fine with mama - we hit 10 places. I stayed in the car at all but 1 and worked on my felt stuff. I was exhausted when I got home.

I promise to get the first post updated TODAY!

Linny, here's a link to that other recipe - I know you've already cooked them, but thought you might like THIS one. Also, anyone who's never visited "The Pioneer Woman" website really should - it's great! If you like steamy romances, gotta read Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. It's a work in progress, so it's not finished yet.

Okay, off to laundry. Talk to y'all later! Becky

Thanks Becky! The recipe is actually 1/2 the recipe I made. You do the same thing with the butter and brown sugar and then you stuff it with a couscous, chick peas, raisin, and veggie mixture. It was reeeeeally delicious!

Hey everybody! Sorry I've been so MIA lately, but I've just not been in the mood, if you know what I mean! Haven't had much inspiration lately, but this morning, when I couldn't sleep I got up and suddenly it's back, so maybe I can have something to share soon.

Tracey, my example tag is not showcased in my hubby's 'personal space' at work (they are allow 1 cubic foot of space for their personal stuff). Others I've put on gifts or just have them hangingn on my inspiration board here in my playroom. Hope that helps!

I'll check in on y'all later! Becky

New baby tags
By Aunt25

one thing I am thankful for - the upcoming addition of twins to the family. I have stamped, heat embossed, stickled, flowered, and pop-dotted on the tag plus added the ribbon/fiber and eyelet as embellies.

Hi Everyone! It's been a busy few days, so I haven't been around much I'm afraid! And this week is going to be busy, too. We leave this Saturday to go to Savannah for Thansgiving week, so I'll be packing up the camper and getting everything ready to roll!

Jamie, got your tags on the first post!

Melissa - don't feel bad, it's just that time of year, too much to do and the fun things get pushed back on the back burner.

Everyone, I have a favor to ask. I've submitted some cards to an online store/forum to be on their design team. If you'll keep your fingers crossed, or even lift up a small prayer I'd be forever grateful! It's a 6 month term and you get their card kit each month and have to make 5 cards to show, host challenges and threads, etc.

Have a great week, and I'll check in whenever I can. Blessings, Becky

Hi Everyone! I'm very busy now, getting laundry done and the camper ready for our trip. Don't forget I'll be AWOI (Away with out internet!) beginning Saturday until the Saturday after Thanksgiving. (22nd - 29th) but I'll do the first post as soon as I get back from Savannah.

Also, don't forget there will not be a December challenge, but an open house thread so we can just check in and say "HI" as we can.

Ash and Pia, are one of you going to be able to take this back over in January???

Blessings, Becky

Oh how I've missed you ladies. The last half of Oct. and all of November have been an absolute whirlwind. I'm afraid it will continue this way for quite a while too. I'm so sorry I haven't been able to participate or even visit sb.com very often, but I want you all to know that I do think of you often and hope you are all doing well. Take care! and enjoy this holiday season!

Hi Everyone! I bet you thought I'd dropped off the face of the earth, didn't you! But no such luck! It's just been really crazy, what with getting ready for our trip, being gone a week, and then having to do all the laundry and putting things away from the trip. We had a great time, by the way!

First, I've opened our December "Holiday Open House" thread, and you can find it HERE .

Any time you want, just stop by and say hi and tell us how you are doing, and if you have something to share, that will be great!

Also, a question - does anyone want to do a poll for the November challenge? If you do, it will be for bragging rights only, as I don't have the funds to offer a prize this month.

And, last of all, is there one among you who's willing and/or able to do the tag challenge for January??? I've not heard from Pia in ages, and Ash can't do it, and I just got asked to be on the 'team' at Inspirational and that will be taking some of my time. So if you can take on this challenge, please let me know. Otherwise we'll just have to stop having it.

So, that's it from me for now. Blessings everyone! Becky
