What Are You Grateful For?

I have spent the last 5 days crafting--and have made over 50 projects!!!

I love being surrounded by fabric and lace and images....(These images here are from Dezinaworld!)

I wanted to show you this collage that I made for a friend of mine...It was created from a vintage book cover...and I think it exudes so much peace and serenity....(I'm not sure where this image is from.)

I am grateful for wonderful friends and to have the ability to share so much with all of you, whether it's our love of art or personal stories--You all bring so much to my life. So, this post comes with a big THANK YOU to all of you~

So, as we approach this season of blessings, could you tell me one thing that you are grateful for? It would be wonderful to read about your blessings.

Also, I have gotten emails about how many of you are enjoying the Angel Seminar that is posted at the top of my blog--I hope it is really helpful~it was a joy to create.



Jo said...

oh my gosh you have been busy! what pretty creations ... the one thing i am grateful for .... life ... it's all to precious and short ...

Cindy said...

Oh Cindy, that collage is so beautiful ~ and you're right, it exudes so much peace! I love the tag that says "know." I have many blessings, but I think tonight I feel most grateful for being healthy ~ which is something we often take for granted, until something happens. Blessings to you, my friend!
Hugs, Cindy

Gina said...

You have certainly been a busy bee!

I know it may seem a typical response, but I am most thankful for my family. There are times when they may drive me nuts, but I wouldn't want to live life without any of them.

Linda said...

Hi Cindy,

Beautiful collage! I am Thankful for so many things,my Family first. Thanks Cindy for the kind words on my blog.
Hugs to you!

Hello Cindy
I have just visited your Angel Seminar, it made me realise how grateful I am to be happy with my life, even though I have a muscle problem which causes me to fall often, I cope because I think about the positives, I have two healthy daughters and a beautiful grand-daughter,they are my reasons to be thankful,and to top it off I have a caring husband, who thinks the world of me, so if some days I do not feel good, I just sit and think about what I do have and it always brings a smile to my face.
Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings I do not do it enough.

Blessings from Cindy said... have proved the point that you don't sleep, my dear bloggy friend!! I love, as always, your beauties!! I am thankful for my hubby, my kids & daughter~in~loves, Jesus, friends, and I could go on & on...I've been posting on my facebook every day what I am thankful for. I will have to gather the list & share for Thanksgiving...hmmm inspiration!!

What a busy gal! Your collage is beautiful. I am so thankful the chance to be an example and mentor to my grandson. God has given me patience and wisdom.

Hope Filled Living said...

Cindy, your creations are so beautiful. I cried when I saw the one with Mary and the Sacred beautiful! I collect religious artifacts and have an altar in my home. I am grateful for feeling well today and being able to go to work. Grateful for small blessings and for friends who are a blessing, like you.
love to you,

Donna said...

Wow, you are really on a creative roll, Cindy! I love all of your beautiful creations, the images and embellishments you use are always so pretty! I'm grateful for so many things. I'm thankful that we live in such a gorgeous place, with lots of wildlife, the ocean, snow covered mountains, and sea creatures. It truly is a little slice of paradise!

Linda said...

Lovely, Cindy! I am grateful for all the wonderful family times we've had this year, that my children all have good jobs, and that another grandchild is expected in the spring!

The Cranky Queen said...

Cindy, I am thankful for my Daddy. He has terminal colon cancer. Each moment that I spend with him is precious. I live 5 hrs. from my parents, traveling I-20 every 3 or so weeks from AL to LA. SO this Thanksgiving will be bitter sweet. I pray for miracles & that God will have mercy. I can definitely say with no doubt that I have a wonderful Father and I love him very much. Tiffany

Barb and Dell said...

Cindy, you have really been busy. I am thankful for many things, but tonight I am thankful for a warm bed to sleep in and food in my stomach.

romance-of-roses said...

I too am involved in a new project with spiritual items but so busy with boutiques that have not had time to post my things on etsy, hopefully this week, but then their is Thanksgiving, so don't know.

Wishing you the most lovely evening, my friend...


Just me said...

Wow, you've been busy! Beautiful!

I am grateful for my kids who make me smile on bad days and laugh on the good. They make life the sweetest it could be. I am grateful that I have the pleasure of being a part of my grand kids lives. I am also grateful for all the wonderful friends I have.

Have a great night!

You've been so busy creating and spreading love through your beautiful work!
This year I am so very thankful for my new home, where I can cook, bake, garden, and be creative, for myself and those I love. I now have a safe, warm, and cozy place to live in and nurture myself and my loved ones.
I thank God for my family, and my good health. Blessing to you and yours! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Cindy,
You are ALWAYS so do you find the time?

I a mostly thankful for being able to walk, talk and see. Even though as I get older it is harder to do those things :-)

Hope you are doing well and your husband also
Haven't been online very much and miss seeing how everyone is especially you my friend!!

Suzann ~xoxo~

Myric said...

Those are all pretty creations! I seriously am thankful for blogging :) and today, I finished one children's story!


Just me said...

Oh Cindy, I'm sorry, it's been a long day! I did receive the tag you sent. It got here today! I promptly put it right on the shelf in my scrap room. It's very pretty! It may find its way onto the Christmas tree this year. I want the stamp that you used on the seam binding. I love how thin and delicate the script is.
Thank you very much!

Kim said...

Cindy, I just wanted to tell you thank you. You are so kind to us new people and always willing to help. I find that so refreshing. So, I am thankful for you at this moment.

Creative Grammie said...

Aloha Cindy,
Wow! You've made some gorgeous tags, so very creative! You know, what's so ironic, I've just spent this entire day making over 2 dozen tag kits for a tag party coming this Sunday.
There are so many things that I'm grateful for, so to start, just a few things. I'm so grateful to have a wonderful family. I'm grateful for the friends that I have, friends that I blog with and friends that I craft with.
Of course dear Cindy, I'm grateful to have found your blog, grateful that we have become friends. You have been a wonderful inspiration to me and for that I'm grateful.
Warm hugs to you.

Cinner said...

Cindy you have been so busy, I need to stay and catch up on your blog. What I am grateful for the most is becoming best friends with my Mom since my Dad passed away a couple of years ago. A reminder at how precious people are, you being one of them. hugs.

Gaby Bee said...

WOW, you are one busy bee, how do you find the time? I'm still trying to get figure out a way to grow more hours in a day. I've never enough time, to do all that I want to

I am grateful for so many love, caring friends, a warm home, electric :'), drugs that help to fight the cancer beast, my blogger friends who bring daily joy and most of all I am thankful to God for carrying us and bringing peace, and hope.

Queenie Believe said...

Such beautiful project, I so enjoy visiting and seeing all they wonderfulness.
I'm thankful for my husband Honey Man, his love, support and his uncanny ability to understand me sometimes before I know myself.
Thank you.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

Donna said...

Oh, Cindy,

Fabulous creations! There are so many things to be grateful for, but first on my list, and you asked for the one thing (which is so hard!) - is LOVE. Not just the love of others, but the love I have for others, and this comes only from the love I receive from Jesus Christ! Every morning I wake up and thank God for His love for my life, for this day to serve Him - for others to feel His love for them through me, and I through them!

Thank you so much for helping me think about all that means so much to me.

You're an Angel, my friend, and I'm very grateful to feel His love through you!


Char said...

Hi Cindy,
you have been so busy creating beautiful treasures.
I used to say that I was grateful if I could get up in the morning and remember my name, breathe on my own and function without help. HA!!
That is still true, but I am so grateful for blogging friends like you. I feel so blessed to be here, loved by God and family.
You are the best Cindy,

Draffin Bears said...

Happy rest of the week

Cindy said...

Hello again Cindy,
I just went through your comments, reading what everyone is thankful for and it's so inspirational! It made me realize I'm grateful for the internet! Without it, I wouldn't have my job, wouldn't have my blog, and wouldn't have met so many wonderful people, including YOU! How else would we have ever known we had a "twin" out there? LOL! Hugs and love,

Linda said...

Hi Cindy,

Just wanted you to know I loved the book! I bought it tonight and read it all the way through. It was uplifting to read each story. The book gave me hope and peace. Thanks again! I am giving my daughter Tara and my grand angel Nayla this book for Christmas for their kndles.
Hugs from me!
