A Positive Attitude

OK, I'll be the first to admit it, sometimes I have a bad attitude. I mean a really bad one, you can ask my family, they'd be the first to agree. Those negative conversations you have in your head can really affect your emotions, and attitude. "Boy you're looking old and tired today" "Why can't you be as successful as them?" "Wow, have you gained weight!" and on and on the list goes. It also leads to complaining. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said, "Stop Global Whining" That one made me laugh.
Don't you admire people who can keep positive attitudes, especially in the middle of tragedy? I've met many on blogs who blow me away with what they face, and still remain happy. Maybe you're one of those who do have a positive attitude, or maybe you struggle like me. So much of attitude is really a choice, you can choose to be angry, mean, or sorry for yourself, (and these are things I struggle with) or you can be kind, grateful and think of others, bringing happiness to those around you.
With attitude in mind, I'd love it if you'd vote for the saying you like best. You can vote over in the upper right hand corner. I'm making the winner into an ornament so it can remind me through the day how important an attitude is. Thanks for your help!
Take care,

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm truly thankful for so many things, including the health of my kids, love of family, and the ability to create. It's also a bittersweet time, because it's the first Thanksgiving without my mom. But I'm truly thankful to be able to celebrate all the blessings God has poured out in spite of the difficult times.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Carlsbad Street Faire

It's that time of year again, so kick off your holiday shopping and head over to Carlsbad this Sunday! It's the biggest 1 day craft show in the country ( I believe it by the crowds) and you're invited. It's Sunday Nov. 7th from 8-5, and don't forget to change your clock back and gain an hour. I'll be at the corner of Carlsbad Blvd. and Grand, near the Witch Creek Winery if you get thirsty. :) It should be a beautiful day weather wise, so come on out and enjoy a fun day. I'll be bringing loads of goodies like the ones above.
Hope to see you there!
