Happy day-before-Turkey Day! I am all ready to eat!!! I am not contributing one thing to the meal this year...how lazy of me right? Well in my defense my family is very tiny and it will just be my Grandma, my Dad and myself this year so...since they are the original good cooks in the family, I defer to their awesome cooking abilities...they don't need a third cook in the kitchen. In fact it rather annoys my father to have any other cooks in his kitchen so I will be on the couch coloring my holiday card images.

As for What On Your Workdesk....I stamped off about 40 images last night in preparation. In my desk photo you can see that I have placed the things I want to work with in a basket and on the desk and I will be packing them in my bag tonight to take with me to my Dad's. I have preselected the copics I want to use and put them in my little clear plastic baggie so I can find them easily...

Allegedly dinner is at 3 this year(which Dad also claimed last year...then when I arrived at 3, I was informed I was late and they had been waiting for me to eat). This year I am going over in the morning and I will spend the whole day hanging out with my Grandma and annoying my Dad. We will have our yearly arguement of whether or not cornbread is a traditional Thanksgiving food... I firmly maintain it is since flint corn was a traditional native american food. They are both sportsaholics so I will entertain myself and get crafty. After dinner I am going to hit the Michael's by my Dad's house. They open at 5 and they have much better stuff then my Michael's does. I want to pick up the holiday Smooch Paint kit...it has red green gold and a white shimmer $13.99...then the limited edition Stickles they have for $6.99 and I want another clear 12 X 12 Iris case... they have them for $4.49...all that and an extra 30% off entire purchase including sale coupon and I will be a happy little crafter. After that I will go back to my Dad's and will watch the holiday specials with my Grandma... Taylor Swift and then Beyonce will be on. Grandma likes all the music shows...she is very hip for 83!
Oh and I made a quicky little Thanksgiving themed card...just because I wanted to be in the spirit. The image is a freebie digi MelJen's Designs, and the papers and ribbon are retired SU! One of my pearls fell off my card...sigh.. oh well I tried. (Copics: YR23, YR18, YR15, YR16, E08, E19, E09, G21).

Wishing you all a safe, healthy, and bountiful Thanksgiving!
I am thankful for all of you and your wonderful comments all year long!
