In this weeks installment, we are sure to have something for you to be thankful for. As mentioned in the announcement for this venture, we said we would be including original work from each of us. I am here to give you the low-down on those inclusions *w00t!* In addition to these bits of eye-candy, be sure to read to the end for extra opportunities to add some creative mojo to your holiday preparations!
First off, from the wildly talented Michelle Davis Petelinz of Kindred Spirit Studios, we have a gorgeous alcohol ink pendant on a black, cotton cord with an adjustable chain. These pieces are absolute stunners – photos do not do them justice (as with most shiny things). It will be just as at home with your favorite jeans and denim shirt as with your fancier duds for a night on the town. No two are alike, so you can rest assured that you are getting a true, one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.
Then, from Penny L. Arrowood of Art Paper Love, we have a trio of marbled magnets mimicking the mineral Lapis Lazuli. *wow – try saying that 3 times, real fast!?* Created on Ampersand Stampboard substrates with multiple layers of Marabu EasyMarble and backed with a super powerful neodynum magnet, these lovelies will dress up any notes that they hold. Their glass-like finish is the result of a layer of resin that gives them additional depth of color. Whether they reside on your fridge or your filing cabinet, they will bring beauty to your day and add a little art to your day to day surroundings.
Just a reminder: it’s not too late to play along! You have until tomorrow (11/30) at Midnight EST to take part in our 1st Anniversary Giveaway of The Cornucopia of Creative Goodness.

Finally: this week marks the close of our weekly Thankful Thursday postings. After a year and a month, we are turning our attentions toward other ways to provide regular content here on the blog. We fully intend to continue this practice, and it is our sincere hope that we have inspired you to regularly reflect on those things for which you are thankful – on Thursdays and every other day!
Until next time,
