A THANK YOU!!! Gratitude Giveaway!

It's been a great month...November, thank you for all the adventures you bestowed.

Thank you...for following along and cheering me along the way, I am uplifted because of you.
These last few months have been so rewarding, I'm glad I've had the opportunity to step outside of the corporate world and make a living from my own two hands and the ideas that unfold from within. While life is uncertain, I am at peace and loving my choice that was made.

Taking time out to 'be there' just be there...and be able to be there....removes so much anxiety I've had at home over the last few years that had been intensifying as my responsibilities on the job grew. Now I'm able to be a Mom again first and foremost.

I'm grateful for sons that are growing into people that I am constantly amazed by, laugh with, enjoy to be around, and love so deeply. Life is good.

I want to share my love for my artsy friends and followers...while I am not having a black Friday sale, I do want to offer a 25.00 gift certificate to my shop:

Simply leave a comment and tell me what you are thankful for this year big or small....we all gain joy from hearing about goodness and gratitude.....And if you can visit my shop and share the love of your favorite item on facebook or your blog, that would be wonderful (not necessary to win however the comment is :).

As I leave you today, remember there are angels have an opportunity every day to be one on earth as well.....give to others without expecting anything else in return and your life
will be rich beyond words.
Love unconditionally simply and sweet...
It's not just the big moments in life we have to be thankful's the little ones as well.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours......Thank YOU  for being there.  Enjoy!

COMMENTS taken through Friday and drawn late at night so you can enjoy your gifty this weekend !

I am thankful for my whole year, it has been up and down and all around but we have come out of it know more, being a better family and with lots of wonderful memories.
I had a wonderful time in my class with you and i learnt so much and even had 5 pieces in a very small local art show which sold 2.
Thank you also.

I am so thankful for my wonderful family! I'm thankful for all my art friends I have met through facebook and the internet who keep me inspired and "on track". And I'm thankful for my opportunity to create and give my artful muse her voice!

Thank you Jodi for what you do and who you are! You share your gifts with all of us...and in that way make the world a better place!

I'm so thankful for my wonderful husband/best friend. We've been through so much together in our married life (31 1/2 years) and I love him even more now than I did when I married him! I'm thankful for my children and their health, and my grandchildren and their health. So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm thankful for family!!!!

I'm thankful for every free second I can steal away to get paint on my hands.
That my family is healthy and safe.
For the 14 years I had with my Kitty before I had to let her go this year.
And I'm thankful for the grapes that gave up their life's to become this awesome glass of wine I am having tonight!

It has been an exciting couple of months for you! So brave and inspiring Jodi. :) I am thankful that I have had the chance to stay home with my kids again this year & follow my passion in art - all because I have a super supportive hard working hubby. I am super in love with your little 4x4 purple & green piece with faith on it. So cute!!

What a lovely post Jodi and a generous gift.

What am I thankful for....friends and sounds trite I know but things were difficult and without their love and support I don't know where I would be now...

I love your work and my favourite is Mini Painting Funky Whimsical Doodle Home Red Green Lime Green House Floral - gorgeous!!

Belated Happy Thanksgiving to you.
