Happy Small Business Saturday!!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the company of family and friends as well as having a bountiful table full of goodness before them.
I so enjoyed having my boys together, my oldest lives in Myrtle Beach so our times together are getting further and further a part since he is growing up and not into coming to Moms every other weekend anymore. :( But we all had a grand time cooking and playing and shopping together this weekend.
Yes we did go out at 1:00 am to shop on Black Friday and it was fun, almost like a sport and surprisingly enough because we went just after everything opened we didn't encounter lines that were that long. Picked up a few deals and got the shopping season started with a bang :)
But today is the day that hopefully everyone will consider staying local and shop with your mom and pop shop, local crafter, online or other wise--artist and small business owner. Step out and travel down town, take a peak at what Etsy has to offer and support those that are making a living on their own and who count on your support to survive.
In honor of Thanksgiving and my gratitude to you, I had a giveaway for simply making a comment on one of my posts here on blogger, and my two facebook pages. I took all the names and drew a winner this morning and drum roll please.....the winner is:
