Count Your Blessings...

But...if you add more sets to your cart, you'll have to be counting stamp sets as well! haha.



I thought I'd make a gratitude jar for my family to think about their blessings. Each time they think of a blessing, they can add a kernel of popping corn into the jar.  Once we have a full jar, we can celebrate with a little POPCORN PARTY!


I'm sure you'll find many ways to use "Country Thanksgiving" to bless your friends and family this year!

And...for all you Buckeyes (and chocolate lovers)...and yes, I am both of those...


A little bit of chocolate wrapped up with a belly band. Although...one nugget is never enough.


"Cardinals in Winter!" is the name of this set.
