I hope Thanksgiving was a great one for everyone this year. I cooked again this year, last year dinner was ordered from Whole Foods (which honestly was really disappointing), I was in no shape to cook it had only been 1 week since I had Syra. This year was great. The turkey came out amazing in the convection oven. I made a new stuffing, which I believe is here to stay, Artichoke Parmesan Sourdough Dressing. It was delicious I don't think I have ever loved stuffing so much. The mashed potatoes were very good too. I sauteed brussels sprouts (I love them). I made my great great grandmother's yam recipe straight from the heart of Kentucky, I think they were my husbands favorites this year. And my gravy came out pretty darn good this year. We bought a pumpkin pie, but I did make fresh whipped cream to top it off.

As for my art and stuff, I am happy to say that I am finally starting to sell! Not on etsy, but at least it is selling. I am very happy to have some kind of movement. I knew when I finally committed to truly following my heart's desire to do what I am doing, that it would take time. I am building from the ground up. Sure it is scary not knowing how I will make my bills, but somehow I get through each month. I keep focusing on my thoughts today, create my tomorrow.

I feel like I am repeating myself, but I am excited to say I have some new things in the works. I cannot wait to share.

I hope at the end of this holiday weekend, you have peace in your heart and a smile on your face. I am contemplating on sharing something here on my blog, but right now at this moment I do not have clarity, so I will end my post here for tonight.

I finally got my handmade journals done! Hooray...I have a couple stores that are interested after that I will get the rest of them posted. I have one up for sale right now in my etsy shop.

The possibilities are endless with these handmade journals, with your creative mind, and a variety of papers. In here you can enjoy envelope pockets, ready made to do lists, vellum paper (which you may also use for tracing), lined paper, graph paper, watercolor paper, blank white paper, and confetti paper. In addition they are re-fillable. These make great gifts for a special someone or to treat your inner artist.

Enjoy, and let your mind be free.
