Seize the Sketch #6: so very thankful



We're back with a new challenge over at Seize the Sketch!  

I gotta tell you guys that I loved each and every project that linked up for Seize the Sketch #5!  It's so very fun to see how everyone is inspired!  Thanks for all your great creations and enthusiasm!

Here's the new sketch:


Fabulous sketch by my teamie, Cathy!

Here'w how it inspired me:


Yes, I'm still smitten by the Basic Grey Persimmon collection!

I found my Timeless Twine Natural twine...HA, I stashed it when I was crafting one day.  Ugh, I'm horrible with the stashing thinking that I will actually remember where I stashed stuff...NOT!  Trying to be better about that.

Anywho's, love this collection for the fall inspired colors.  I've never been much of a navy girl but since the start of the nautical trend, I quite like it, a lot.  That's good because it's Darin's favorite color and it's everywhere in the house!  Some of you read this earlier but he has all navy fiestaware, nicely combined with my rainbow fiestaware.


I have a nice collection of thankful cards...awesome.  You can NEVER have too many of those, eh? 

Be sure to check out the Seize the Sketch blog to see how my teamies were inspired!


I added some new goodies to my For Sale page

I think Navy really is one of the more underestimated neutrals...it doesn't tend to be my thing, but then I also said that about grey once upon a time, lol. I have a big ol' case of WANT for this Persimmon pad - LOVE how you keep rocking it!
