Thoughtful Thursday 8/1/13

School is about to start and I have to say I have very mixed feeling about that!!  I am looking back to all that we have done over this summer and how short it seems, but then I am remembering how much I can’t wait to get the kids out of the house and back on a schedule!!  There is a line in the movie You’ve Got Mail that talks about fall and how wonderful freshly sharpened pencils smell…. that is me!!  I LOVE shopping for school supplies (not school clothes, though) and getting a FRESH start to the year (yes, with kids your year is the school year)!
So today, as I am sitting here look over all the school forms – that I have to fill out every year – I am thankful and sad that summer is almost over.  Do you get these mixed feelings?  Are you as torn as I am about the start of school and end of summer vacation?
I have to say that I was really hoping to raise some money for the American Red Cross, but I have gotten little/no bids.  I am not sure if I should just extend the Auction or cancel it.  I will have to think about it and see what happens.  
Please come on over and check out the Auction… remember, it benefits the American Red Cross and right now you can get these creations at an AMAZING bid!!
Here is a new listing for today… it is fun and beautiful and from my Grandmother’s Stash!! 
Here is my current project….I got very little interest when it started, just one color, BUT, when I added the center….oh boy!!!  You can watch the creation grow on my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day!!
Today my featured artist is: customized4Y.   Although this artist doesn’t have much under the BIO tab it is very easy to see the love for all things vintage!!  I have to say that there are several things in this wonderful studio that I would love to have in my home (many of them I remember from growing up)!  Please go see all the great Vintage items and remember, always support handmade artist!!

Today I will leave you with this thought;

Effectiveness without values is a tool without purpose.
