Grateful Mini

Hi Friends!
Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving, got to do some Black Friday shopping, and are starting to pull out your Christmas decorations! I'm still on vacation enjoying my break from real life. =) We are headed back next week and once we're over jet lag, I should be back to posting regularly.

Yesterday I had a mini album go up on the Pebbles blog featuring the last little bits of the Fresh Goods line that I still had. I love making minis that use up scraps!







For this album, I decided to share some things that I am thankful for this year. I have a lot of blank pages in the back so as something else comes up, I can add it in. I dated it with 2011 so I can make one of these each year and continue to document the things I am thankful for year 'round.
Thanks for stopping by!

All is quiet, but not so calm...

So I just wanted to pop in and apologize for being quiet this last week. I worked on the quilt I talked about in the last post- but halfway through quilting it I noticed I had a serious tension problem and now I have to take all that free-motion quilting OUT. So, since I have no patience for that at the moment, the quilt is going back on the shelf for a while.
And, I've been working on a few projects but my printer ran out of photo black in the middle of a mini album.... and my local American store has been completely out of this ink for months now. I tried going to a German electronics store but I guess Euro and American inks aren't recognized together in my printer as being compatible. Talk about a pain!
Thursday we leave for vacation- a looooooong 11.5 hour flight from Frankfurt to San Francisco and then from there to Boise. We've been missing our families a lot lately so this is a much needed trip- but there will be lots of alcohol consumed on the plane, I assure you. I can already imagine Luke kicking the seat in front of him, not wanting to sit still, and screaming at the top of his lungs because he's cranky... Okay, so maybe it won't be THAT bad but prepare for the worst and then be surprised, I guess! I'm going to take a few supplies with me so I can have a few posts here and there (hopefully).
And with that, I'll leave you with Luke as Luke Skywalker for Halloween this weekend... =)
