A Late Thankful Post.

I have not been as good at updating this as I would like to eventually become. Sometimes I get bogged down in the day-to-day life and the various writing projects I have going on that I feel creatively drained. I don’t want to sit down and write a blog post after all of that, but I figured on a day where I got nothing creative accomplished, I could possibly get something up on my blog – which brings me to my topic. Today, I’ll tell you what I’m thankful for, in the spirit of the holidays.

1. I’m thankful I do not work in retail. Black Friday doesn’t seem to matter to restaurants. It was slow on Friday at work, and for that I’m terribly thankful. I don’t know if I could ever work in retail.
2. I’m thankful for my dogs, Sarah, my mother, K-chan, and Tempy who have helped me keep my sanity these last few months. I don’t know what I would do without their help. Just listening to my ramblings keeps the monsters in my mind at bay.
3. I’m thankful that I live in a free country. I’m thankful that I have the rights to study whatever I want, the rights to think freely and express my opinions. I’m thankful I was born here instead of somewhere else – even if sometimes I think it might have been more amazing if I was born in the UK.
4. Last, but certainly not least, I’m thankful for the creativity that seems to come naturally to me. Every craft I have applied myself to in the last two years or so have all come easily. I still get frustrated with things that don’t turn out right, and I don’t have the patience that I wish I could magically gain, but I seem to have luck with my crafting.

Those are the things I’m thankful for this holiday season, and I’m glad I can share them with you.

Back to crafting my surprise holiday décor. Many of my close friends (and facebook stalkers >>) already know what my theme is this year, but I will be posting a quick look at my ornaments. I may even make a video-tutorial for them, if I can find the time!

Happy crafting. :)
