 “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them” John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American family and friends. As long as we remember to say please, thank you and appreciate all that is good in our lives it sure does make a difference in this fast paced modern world we live in. 

Thanksgiving has always been my favourite holiday, it can be a beautiful day, quiet and simple and uncomplicated as simply taking time to be thankful for all that is good.

Plymouth  was our home for many years. The things I love about the region include being able to smell pine and salty beaches at the same time, fresh seafood, sandy beaches, quiet forests with unexpected encounters with nature at play, the many little local artists and markets and shopkeepers, going to school and hanging out with kids with names that connected us to history.   The Plymouth Plantation is a fantastic adventure to visit to get a feel of life for the pioneers and appreciate their accomplishments.
This photo was taken on one of the beaches at Plymouth not far from the famous rock.

Psalm 71:14

"As for me, I will always have hope."
Started working on the calendar and schedule for the next few weeks and realised 2013 is almost over. It has been a blur of all kinds of events around here but focusing on the future and appreciating all beauty that does surround us. Sharing a photo for fans of Sky Watch Friday from the beautiful north coast of New South Wales were we could almost call this a room with a view.
Putting the finishing touches on a new workshops as well, including this gift card holder for the holiday season based on a jumbo tag with lots of special little details.
The class is part of the My Creative Classroom offerings, lots to choose from for all kinds of crafters. Have a wildly creative weekend friends!
Sharing a video clip from time lapse photographer Louie Schwartzberg and TEDx on the topic of living with gratitude that can't help but make you smile.
It is that time of year .... the holiday music has started.
