The Thanksgiving dishes are rattling away in the dish washer and football is droning while the little one dreams of a third dessert up in her crib. Things are finally quiet and I have a few minutes to myself to think about all the hings I am thankful for this year. There are too many people and things to list out here, but I want to share a few nonetheless.
I'm thankful for my family. My daughter has been with us just over a year now and I couldn't imagine life without her. Whats more, I couldn't imagine life without the love and support I've gotten from the rest of my family -- both in helping to take care of my daughter and in encouraging me to start The Itsy Bitsy Spider.
I'm thankful for my customers. It sounds hokey, I know... but I'm thankful for each and every person who purchased a doll or pattern. With each sale, my confidence and creativity are growing. I want to try more things and come up with more creations to delight you.
And I'm thankful for the friends I have made through blogging, Etsy street teams, and Facebook. So many of you I've never met in person... but I treasure your comments, feedback and encouragement -- both on this blog and elsewhere.
I'd also like to thank the academy... Ok, just kidding. But I was serious on the other three. As we start into the prime holiday season, I want everyone to know just how much I appreciate my family, friends, customers, and peers for helping me to make The Itsy Bitsy Spider a reality.
