thanks. it's hard every year, but was even harder as yesterday was the 22nd anniversary of my mom dying to breast cancer. so it was REALLY hard being thankful when the one thing I really wanted was to say i was thankful for my mom's loving arms.

I like the idea of a Thankful Jar too. I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. A week ago , I made up a few birthday cards to get a head start. Now I have to finish up my Christmas cards and make some tag ideas for my dads craft day with the grandkids.

Jci I think that getting a jump start on cards is an awesome idea:)What exactly is a Thankful jar? I know that it is probably a jar filled with lists of things that you are thankful for, but how far in advance do you start filling it up?

You know Artesha you could start it right away I would think. It would make you stop and think everyday what you are thankful for, like a beautiful sunrise or getting 15 extra mintues to sleep in before the kids are awake LOL. Might have to decorate one and get the whole family doing it

Dawn you can send as many different holiday cards as you wish. If you want to send Christmas cards next year too then by all means you can. I don't make that a requirement as Christmas time tends to be very busy already but anyone that wants to do it can

thanks artesha! you too!! btw, i made a couple cards last night with my girls.... not sure i'm liking the wooden stamps... i like how an acryllic gives a much clearer image... or maybe it's the studio g inks i have??? i'll post pics here and you can give me your opinion... one of the stamp's i ended up using a sharpie to color over some of the stamp to make it show up more and then added studio g glitter to make the bow pop LOL

Good morning, Dawn. I am the opposite. I find that I like the wooden stamps more. For me the Studio G inks don't give the sharp image that I love. I am sure that your cards are lovely! You heard Shana...this is a STRESS FREE birthday card swap:)Just have fun with it!

Wow, this sounds like a great incentive to get my cardmaking off to a good start. I've just started with this new hobby and it is so much fun. The hardest part is learning to keep my credit card far away from my computer. There are so many great tools out there.

Count me in for the 2013 birthday card swap. Please let me know what you need from me and when.

LOL! I know what you mean, Therez, about keeping the card away from computer. I have a hard time keeping mine away. I just started scrapping in Apirl 2012. I so want everything I see. LOL!

I can't believe it is December already. I am getting excited. The last few years, I have been going through the motions. Like Dawn, I lost my mother to cancer. She loved Christmas and most of my christmas decorations are ones that she gave me over the years. This is the fifth Christmas since she passed and it is getting a little easy to get out those decorations. I know she would be proud of me this year because I am making alot of my christmas presents. Hugs to Dawn and others missing a loved one. Everyone take care.

Add me and mom again this coming year, this is the only ongoing swap I plan to join for the first few months of the year until my life and health issues get straightened out. Same address as well. I will send you the new address when we move in March. This won't effect my birthday cards, but moms it will for those that send it late.
