Good Things

I'm letting my inner Martha out and sharing some "good things" with you today.

Good Thing #1: Sketchy Thursdays is hosting another second chance challenge, and it's a card sketch once again! I decided to use the sketch inspiration for my sister's birthday card - a vintage-inspired library pocket. A gorgeous set of {ippity} stamps is up for grabs. Head on over for all the details!

Good Thing #2: I feel very blessed. I found an inpiring blog - Rachie's Place. A little comment I left earned me some amazing blog candy. A Christmas scrapbooking kit with oodles of embellies and vintage goodies, a vintage green glass compote (I think it may hold jewelry on my dresser - not sure yet), and a stack of vintage childrens Christmas books. Merry Christmas to me!

Good Thing #3: I am an elf. Yep. A singing, dancing elf. I have the wonderful opportunity to be in a theater group called "The Enchanted Entertainers". A group of moms here in my little town produce plays for the children and it is SO MUCH FUN! "The Elf Who Stole Christmas" is my first play, and I had the chance to choreograph a fantastic little dance number! We perform for all the schools and the community on Thursday. I am so excited! I will post pictures this weekend.

Good Thing #4: I've always loved everyone I've met named Joy, and my new friend Joy is no exception! By chance we met through Etsy and over several emails I have a new Facebook friend and a ribbon exchange partner! I sent Joy some Santa ribbons and look what she sent me:

It feels good to count my blessings every once in awhile. We are truly blessed, every day. We just need to remember to look around for those "good things". I hope you are having a wonderful day! I'll soon be sharing a couple of custom albums I've made, so stay tuned :).



  1. How fun! Christal is my SIL and I have a few friends in the play as well so we'll be coming to watch on Thursday!

  2. Your post left me totally inspired. Thanks for sharing. Headed to Sketchy Thursday to see the sketch :)
