Thank you! [Nov. 27th, 2007|05:23 pm]

[Current Mood |thankfulthankful]

My first thanks goes out to gonzy317 who helped me out so that over Thanksgiving we were able to finally visit Craig's family after not seeing them since May! The hotel we stayed in was amazing, with a kitchen, a couch, a comfy king bed, and a large bathroom with a bathtub in it. We want to stay there again, and without the help we would have had to stay at hotel de stinkypoo again (the hotel where I had to get an air freshener before I could breathe at all and I was afraid to lay on the bed it was so icky.

My second thanks goes to pollyhyper who led me to etsy.com where I have just purchased no less than 10 amazingly unique Christmas gifts which are more personal than I could have possibly found in a store. With less money this year, it is more important to be thoughtful, and I hope that people like what I got them. I wish I could be as generous with money as I want to be, but I hope that the fact that the gifts are more personal will resonate with the people that I love, and that the holiday meal I make will also be a great part of Christmas this year.

So many of you online friends make a big difference, and I just wanted to point out a few on my mind today, so thanks for adding smiles and positive things to my life.

I'm amazed at the talent of people and how reasonably priced some of the items are.

It was the Marriot Town Suites in Hillsboro Oregon (close to where Craig's Mom lives).

Awwwww... I'm so glad you had a nice stay, and I'm glad I could help in any way. And I can't tell you how much your thanks means to me. This made my day (not that I'm not all about positive affirmation anyways, but I rarely get it!!) :)

Yay! Now, I have to check out this etsy place...

We had a very wonderful time. I loved the pillows so much that I had to find out the brand so I can buy one! The breakfast was good too. They even had hard boiled eggs and miso soup, so I got my protien in.

You're welcome, and thank YOU for making a conscious effort to buy handmade this year - I like your description of the gifts as "resonating."

Thank you also for accepting me, a complete stranger, into your LJ world, and for wandering into mine as well. :D

I had never really thought much about it. I assumed that this year I couldn't afford to buy handmade items because they are "so expensive for time and supplies", which sometimes is true, but there are things in every price range on there. I'm so glad I checked it out!
