Thankful Friday, Yay for May

Thank goodness it’s Friday. That means it’s time to take a moment to appreciate the big things and the small things I’m thankful for from the past week.

  • Hasn’t the weather been strange? Warm up already! Great you are getting some stationery sales! And cookies…cookies are good, too!

  • #1 and #2 sound like BIG things to be thankful for:)

  • like your thankful posts, reminds us all to slow down and appreciate what is around us

    • Thanks so much for letting me know. I wasn’t sure if people were interested in reading these posts anymore, so I really appreciate your comments.

  • Hi Terri! Happy May to you. 🙂
    I haven’t been online in a long time..I think over a year..but am slowly making my way back and decided to pop in here to see what you have been doing. I am in love with your new stationary products and need to purchase some of the bleeding heart notecards since that is my favorite plant. You’ve done so much since I’ve last been by your blog I’m impressed!

    P.S. I really like your Artemis branding project. I could really use some of those products right now I wish it were real!

    • Hi Staci! Great to hear from you! Thanks so much for stopping by. Has it really been a year? I guess I’ve been quite productive these days. How have you been?!?!

      Did you have a baby? I had a lot of fun with that Artemis project. It was quite a challenge for me at first, so it’s nice to hear I made it believable and desirable to others. I hope I get to do more branding projects like that in my future career 😉

  • It’s Saturday….I’m behind yet again. I am thankful we have not had any snow! I am thankful our tree is blooming, and the weather is allowing the flowers to stay on for a little while. I’m thankful a lot of my plants that I planted last summer came back this spring. I haven’t killed them yet! LOL. I’m thankful we get to go see Wicked tomorrow. I’m thankful for Elsa having lots of friends….3 birthday parties and 2 sleepovers this weekend. Whew!

  • Hello Terri,

    A great list this week, I am a bit behind with blog reading. Went and learnt about beekeeping on the weekend. Good luck with the final week or two of your studies for the Semester. Lots to be thankful for at your home.

    Happy days.
    Bev.
