So how was your Thanksgiving?  I ate too much, but that's what Monday mornings are for...starting the diet!!  We had a wonderful time with our family...little baby Walsten is still kicking strong, so will keep you posted on his arrival. 
I wanted to remind all of my TWCC friends that the Henry Glass Designers Holiday Parade will be starting this Wednesday!! Keep watching.  There will be lots to learn and lots to see.  Free projects will be posted every day, so looking forward to keeping in touch with you.  Hope all is well with all of you,

Counting Blessings

As the wind blows, and Winter peaks it's blustery head around the corner of a gorgeous Fall, I think about the previous Winters that I have been a part of.  Snowball fights, snow forts, sledding down the neighbors hill, ice fishing with my Dad, baking cookies with Mom...the list goes on.  I am reminded that my blessings stretch so much further than the now, they are a little more obvious.  I am so thankful to be raised in a family that put faith and family first.  For grandparents who loved us and encouraged us to go to church and gather later with loving relatives.  God is so good.  This time of year there seems to be a lot of reflecting...probably should do it all through the year. 
I want to say that I am also very grateful to be working with a fabric company that has allowed me to share my talents with others on cloth.  Henry Glass was an answer to prayer.  They came along at a time when I thought I was done designing fabric...and I am so glad that God saw different.  So with that, I want to let you know how much you mean to me...Henry Glass Fabrics and Lisa Loessel, you are the best!!!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you1!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families,

P.S. Be watching as coming soon, other designers, as well as myself, will be participating in a Henry Glass Designers Project Parade...so much fun!!!  Stayed tuned for more details!!

Getting Ready for the Holidays!

Where has November gone?  As I get ready for our family to come on Thanksgiving, I am reminded of what is to come...yes, the obvious of the normal Holiday hub-bub, but most importantly the celebration of the birth of a king.  Yes, Jesus is the true reason we are celebrating Christmas.  But for us this year, we have another little man that we can't wait to meet...our first grandchild...a little boy due Christmas Eve!! What a gift.  I am new to this blogging thing, and at the risk of sounding like a prideful soon-to-be grandma, I can't help but be so incredibly thankful for all the gifts that God has given my husband and I.  I also want all of you to know how thankful I am for all that you have done to support my business over the past 18 years.  God Bless you and your families on this special holiday...I will keep you posted on our new arrival!!
