thankful :: four

greetings from st. augustine, florida!

there's nothing like being in the warm weather to celebrate the holidays with family. i'm thankful for 70 degree weather and palm trees today. oh, and of course my family. :-)


thankful :: three

a dear friend of mine who is a yoga instructor graciously agreed to help me with a final project i'm working on for graduate school. i have to build an interactive narrative on the benefits of practicing yoga. so, naturally, i turned to her from the get go for her expertise and direction with this project.

yesterday she was the subject of my photo and video shoot. here is one of my favorite photos.

it was a very fun and very successful shoot! so, in the spirit of "Thanksgiving," i am very thankful for her and the contributions she has made not only to my yoga project, but also to my life. she's a fabulous woman and friend!!

thankful :: two

a picture is worth a thousand words, especially in this economy. only $22 to fill up my tank. now that's more like it.

so, therefore, i'm thankful that the "gas lords" decided to lower the price per gallon - more pennies in my pocket. i still, however, don't understand why just six months ago a gallon was over $4. Ridiculous!!!


thankful :: one

given that it is november and thanksgiving is approaching, i thought it would be fun to post (as much as i can here given all of the grad school work i have to do) a series of entries highlighting just a few of the things (because there are many!) that i'm thankful for in my life.

so i will start off this first post by expressing my gratitude for crafters, especially those whom i'm related to, eh em, thistle downs wool design.

i recently purchased a couple of handmade purses from her for christmas presents and being the fabulous cousin that she is, she included two special treats, one for me and one for my sister. have a look:

felted scarves!! the pink and grey one is so me. while the brown and tan one is very much my sister's style. i can't stop wearing mine!

so i am thankful for you cousin and your thoughtfulness and generosity.

for those of you looking to purchase something handmade this holiday season for a special someone, i highly recommend going on over to thistle downs wool design or visit her store at smashing darling.
