thanks~giveaway.....

"Follow through on all your generous impulses." -Epictetus That is a quote I keep nearby...something to think about and remember. Especially at this time of year. Tomorrow being the Thanksgiving Holiday here in the states. Two words... thanks... giving... two important words... Two words we all should think about. I have another Namaste knitting bag. The Namaste needle binder to giveaway.... a thanks..for just being there. But this time something else ... something special... the wonderful people at Namaste... have graciously donated some of their items for me to add to the giveaway... buddy cases...totes...pens.... they were also following through on their generous impulses. So two words... two people... two winners. leave me a comment within the next week and you could be one of the two. Now I have promised some updates on the SWAP... I have created a blog especially for it... and you can find the updates here. There are a few more days to register... so don't delay... come on... follow through on your generous impulses... you will be glad you did. And a wonderful and happy holiday to all who celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow.... And a thank you to the wonderful people at Namaste.

Happy Thanksgiving. We celebrated ours in October and I somehow escaped eating turkey (not my favorite) and for that I am thankful. Not sure I will be so lucky at Christmas. A most beautiful and generous giveaway - I think Namaste products rate right up there on my list of things I love.

Of course the knitting, the photography, and prose are beautiful. I especially love your quotes and often copy them to put in the daily memo at the retirement home I work at. Two words: Thank You

No need to enter me T (but you are truly generous with the giveaway!)...but just wanted to say thanks for the quote. I love opening a new post and seeing which quote you are offering...they more often than not are very reflective of something in my life. I love that!

I hope you and your family had an amazing Thanksgiving!

arcanethings said...

Beautiful blog, and beautiful and generous giveaways! I would love to give something a new home here in Scotland (and your projects are just wonderful - they compliment the mood of the landscape where I am just perfectly). Thank you for sharing your creativity and being so inspiring.

Lisa said...

Thanks for the reminder. Thanksgiving...giving thanks. Developing an attitude of gratitude. Whenever things seem particularly black, I remind myself of everything I have to be grateful for. Thanks for the chance at the Namaste goodies.

Eliza said...

I have been eyeing up a Buddy case for some time. I love everything they make. Being Canadian, I get to enjoy Thanksgiving with friends in Portland for a second go around of turkey. Don't know if it gets any better than that.
