This year, I am thankful for...

I am thankful for...

My incredibly supportive family...
Who are also my toughest critics, because someone has to be.
And of course their unconditional love and support is an added bonus.

My friends and (of course) Kyle... 
Who give me critical feedback and help me create and develop material for this blog.
I'm eternally grateful for their support and friendship even after seeing me at my best and worst moments.
Be sure to check out Ursula's website to see her artwork, she's extremely talented.
Janice and Kyle fill in taking the pictures for my blog when Bailey is unavailable.

Speranza Animal Rescue and our pups..
The people at Speranza have the biggest hearts and give dogs a chance when no one else will.
I am so thankful for their post back in July about Lily's liter being rescued from a kill shelter at only 8 weeks old.
Read more about Lily (and Macey!) here, here, and here.

Mark Mahosky (my painting professor)...
Who continually pushed me to develop my painting style and made me grow a love for a medium I never  had ANY interest in trying.
You can see more of my paintings under the Digital Portfolio tab > "Personal Work" or by searching "a new medium" or "painting".

All of you...
Who help make all the hard work that goes into this site worth it.

New opportunities...
That will be coming soon and I am SO excited to share in the next few weeks!

As I mentioned yesterday, my mom, mimi and I go Black Friday shopping every year. We're those crazies out at 4pm on Thanksgiving waiting in line for a store that opens at 6pm and we usually stay out 12-14 hours. Ha ha it's always a blast as the night wears on into the early morning and you're running dangerously low on energy and you simply have NO patience for anything that could come between you and your sales. But it's a tradition I love nonetheless and for those of you who may not love the craziness as much as we do, below you can find the Black Friday online sales I'm just as excited for. I'll try to write another for Cyber Monday sales if I get a chance. Happy Shopping!
