Retail brings Christmas to us earlier and earlier every year; it's now happening a few weeks before Halloween in mid-October, but November 1st seems to be the indicator for me... With the start of this season, I am taking the opportunity to say thank you to those who make my world so amazing. This year, in addition to my personal reflecting time, I decided to put pen to paper and write notes to some of those who have really made a difference in my life.
I spent some time searching for an appropriate image (which, of course, I found at the Graphics Fairy) and created thank you cards. Cut, folded, and ready to go, I spent an afternoon writing a few of those who have greatly impacted my life. It makes sense to me; "thank you" cards for "Thanks"giving... right?

No time to make these cards? No printer? A purchased "thank you" card would be a lovely subsitute, and of course, a simple, hand written note is always welcome in the mail or taped to a co-worker's keyboard or monitor! This doesn't have to be fancy; take the time to tell those around you how they impact your life. A few sentences can make such a difference.
Your LYS (local yarn shop)
Family (distant or not, biological or not)
Favorite place to eat
Those who volunteer in your area (food banks, homeless shelters, etc.) - wherever someone is working to make your community a better place
Police or Firemen - address the card to the entire crew
The person who taught you to knit
(and many, many more...)
There's more knitting, weaving and creating going on here than I can talk about... but in time, I PROMISE to share all of it with you... every last stitch. OH - one more thing. Thank YOU for reading. I know that there are lots of blogs out there to read and I appreciate your reading this one... and while not everyone comments on the posts, I know you're looking and that fuels m. Having an online presence is a really fun thing - it affords me a place to sort out and organize my projects and thoughts and it has the added benefit of helping me stay connected to many of my online friends. For that, I'm thankful. Consider this post my "thank you" to you - for reading, being supportive of me (and other designers, knitters, artists), and for being the amazing person you are!!
