A Thanking We Will Go!!!!

Hello Everyone!  If you just left Iva's blog then you are in the right spot.  This blog hop has become more special to me as the days progressed. I always suggest to my fellow crafters to slow down and enjoy life.  I tell no lie - I run like a chicken without a head most of the time.  I really had to reflect about all the things to be thankful for.

So I decided to make a thankful box
