Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a picture of the altar at church last evening as we gathered to celebrate who God is and what He's done for us :) Praying that your day is blessed and you have a chance to reflect on His Goodness in your life ~ I am so very thankful for my customers ><>

candlelight dessert

We had our annual beautiful ladies event last Saturday at church. It's just a wonderful time for everyone ~ preparing our hearts for the Advent season, fellowship with our sisters ( and brothers- who are the waiters for the evening :) and transforming the church gym into a spectacular glimmery breathtaking delight! I love hosting a table and I start *mentally* planning next year's blitz right after the last one ( as I usually acquire plates & things from the Goodwill:) This year I collected the Debbie Mumm penguin salad plates as a surprise for my future DIL, who likes penguins. My *Martha gene* kicks in to high gear for this event :)

triple layers :)

Oooh. There's a definite chill in the air today! While the soup's a boiling, I thought I'd share my new favorite technique~ not sure what it's called....but three white layers, stamped all at once, then separated by colored cardstock :) I used a whole lot of stamps here ( I must have over 100 snowflake stamps...well....because no two are the same, eh? ) credit to: stampin' up, inkadinkado, savvystamps, and a few others I bought unmounted and didn't keep track of the company. sorry :( Words are a muse....another northwest company :)That's all I know!
Here's how things stack up~
