It’s one of those moments where pictures say a thousand words and I don’t have to… it was another beautiful november day…
I can’t believe the year is coming to a close so soon… Can you?
My friends, how often do you look around and realize you already have everything that’s important. Your family, your friends, a roof over your head… and since you’re reading this – you certainly have the internet and a computer or a fancy phone device that let’s you connect with the entire world. You are lucky. And you should be thankful for all these things in front of you ~ and especially thankful not for the things but for the people that are near you and love you…
Don’t you just want to go up to them and say “I am Thankful for You.” Just like that – just say it out loud. Sometimes, amongst the business of daily life, we forget to say “Thank you for being You”. Those words matter and those reminders matter a lot too.
And you know what, I am thankful for you too! For you right there sitting and reading these words right now. You take a moment from your busy life to check in, visit this space, leave a comment, say hello or just silently read on… supporting me on my journey, cheering me on…. being here… – Yes, I am Thankful for you.
To extend my thanks, I wanted to share these two posters with you. You can share them with your friends on facebook etc. But the real great part is that I’ve made them downloadable so you can print them in high resolution, put them in a frame or hang them by one of those cool washi tapes – and it’s instant inspirational art for your home during Thanksgiving.
I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU

This is my gift to you. Print it out, change to b&w on your printer if you prefer b&w, place in a frame and add that little reminder to your home.
Share the love by sharing this free printable on facebook, pinterest etc. (check out my new buttons below this post! ;) Enjoy. Wishing all our US friends a Happy Thanksgiving.

I love handmade beautiful objects. Pieces that are true keepsakes and hold the dear inner beauty of being made with love. Knowing that someone took care and worked hard on creating each piece makes these objects so much more than jewellery…. These are pieces of art you can wear and look beautiful and feel special. And that someone isn’t just someone… she is Amy Ambroult of AG Ambroult Elemental Jewelry.
Amy sent me a couple of pieces and I took my new Copper Jewel Cocktail Ring for a little photoshoot with my sister Miss K. We had a great time enjoying this beautiful autumn day out in the country. A little road trip + great clothes and jewellery + my camera = a beautiful day!
I love and support independent artists. Amy creates beautiful, rustic and expressive jewellery using traditional metalsmithing techniques to transform raw materials into works of beauty and wearable works of art. Her pieces give off an organic and rustic feel and become true keepsakes. And I must admit that they just look cool and modern! Love!
With the Holidays coming up… it’s good to keep handmade artists in mind and support the independent small businesses. Give something beautiful and more special ~ give handmade!
A special thank you to Amy for this wonderful gift. ♥ Ella
it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.
it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
feeling calm and at peace lately
good long phone conversations
good house cleaning over the weekend
raking leaves and getting a workout while doing it
my little family letting mama sleep in on Sunday morning
waking up to coconut lemon pancakes – my husband’s own recipe ;)
getting into a good green smoothie routine and enjoying it
spending time in the kitchen, now that it’s colder I love turning up the heat on the stove and filling the air with good comforting aromas
fresh organic produce always makes me smile
perfecting my own recipe for love…
Do you feel fear when you’re about to take a risk? Do you doubt yourself? It’s ok. Take Risks. If you win, you will be happy; if you loose, you will be wise. (Oh I love this quote!)
If you have a dream, an idea, a vision – go and make your move. Trust yourself and trust your instincts and don’t be afraid of falling down. You will come back stronger and wiser.
Go ahead; Take Risks!
I personally have been a true follower of my ‘gut’! I trust myself the most in this world and held onto every thread of hope to persevere and get what I was after. That approach speaks about my 10 year business that I started when I was 22. Yes, I took risks. I took Risks with my business and even my health.
That same approach speaks about my healing journey, when I was doomed to a life of full disability with incredible muscle weakness… I took a risk when I went against my doctor’s orders and stopped taking strong and dangerous prescription medication. I put all my faith into my diet – I took risks. I knew I trusted myself and all I could do was ‘try’ and see. Try and see if my efforts would help me win or stay the same.
Most times you don’t see your hard efforts right away… it takes years even for our risks to hit the finish line. Sometimes… there even is no finish line. It’s just a level of happiness or loss that we reach. In that case, our true gut will tell us if we should keep going or pull out. But you won’t know until you try… you won’t know until you Take Risks.
What risks are on your mind that you want to take?
Let’s grow happier and wiser together! ;)
