Happy Thanksgiving!

thank you card by miscelena

BEST members took some time to think about what they are grateful for this Thanksgiving:

I'm thankful for all the beautiful people in our lives. My Pepita is growing up surrounded by love and true friends. We are a very lucky family to have so many strong relationships. - Shannon of Sweet Pepita

I am thankful for the opportunity to do what I love and take care of my family. I am thankful to the girls of BEST for lending support when I think I can’t handle the above opportunity. I am thankful for our new president. I am thankful for breakfast sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies. I am thankful for naptime crafting. - Juliet of The Broken Plate

I'm thankful for everything. I know it's cliche but I am. Whether it's good, bad painful, stressfull, anything, i'm glad I can be able to experience life in it's entirety and have the knowledge to pass it on to my children. - Anita of Anita Crafty Creations

I am thankful for my husband, our families, and my cat who are all very supportive and awesome!
- Tricia of T Lane

I'm thankful I am close to so many creative people. Not only do they bring beautiful things into my life, they bring out the best of my own creativity, which in turn makes me feel great. - Megan of VW Studios

I'm thankful for America's hopefullness as evidenced by the election of Obama. I'm also thankful for so many other things, but this is two sentences. - Barbara of Barbara Giles Jewelry

I'm thankful for community, love, hope and the promise of change in the new year.
- Dana of GreenStar Studios

I am thankful for my new grandson, Gareth, born on November 23.
- Donna of Robot Z

I'm thankful for my friends and family, my hands and mind which allow me to create everyday, a new president and a new day!
- Tamara of Block Party Press

I'm thankful for my wonderful family and friends, and for the time to enjoy them. I'm thankful for my husband, who believes in me enough to let me pursue this dream of making things and raising our family. And potato chips and dip are pretty great too. - Jen of The Littlest Bean

I'm thankful for my new crafty friends and the support of the creative community that has helped me on the way to achieving my goals! And the start of the holiday season, my favorite time of year!
- Lauren of Jersey Girl Design

I'm thankful for having the sweetest children, the kindest husband, and a small (but deliciously cozy) roof above all of our heads. - Vicki of Three Wheels Design

I am thankful for this festive season of crafting, holiday prepping, spending time with family and dear friends, and being able to hear the Macy's Thanksgiving parade in the background as I prepare Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. I am also grateful to Bob Dylan and Ben & Jerry's ice cream. - Monica of Sugar Paperie

In this world of chaos and uncertainty, I am thankful for my healthy children, my loving family and my caring friends. Because in the end, there’s nothing more important than health, love and friendship! - Erica of CEK Custom Designs

I am thankful for the ability to fully appreciate and recognize the small joys of everyday life. - Jen of Yummy and Company

This Thankgiving, as at every other, I am thankful for the love of my family, especially from my now-nearly-18-year-old son who is a source of constant amazement, wonder, humor and joy for me. This year I'm also very thankful (after having been laid-off for lack of work over the summer) to have landed an interesting and challenging job with friendly, helpful and patient colleagues and all sorts of unexpected perks. My favorite blessing this year has been the connections I've made in the Baltimore and DC Indie Craft communities - the beauty and creativity is so inspiring! - Anita of Miscelena

I'm thankful for friends, family, health, cats, Bravo TV, sushi, Sirius radio, CuteOverload and do-overs in life! - Karen of Benny and Heidi

I am thankful for gas under $2 a gallon! But above that, I'm thankful for a roof over my head, work to do, and family & friends to love. - Jussara of Spa Therapy Works

Of course, I am thankful for my family, my daughter, my mom and dad, sisters, and in-laws, everyone. I could not ask for a more supportive family. I know how lucky I am to be surrounded by such a great family.
I am grateful to my customers who have made it possible for Brett and I to sustain our modest lifestyle this year after really taking the leap to have our business. But this year I am really taken by the hard work and dedication this B.E.S.T. team has put forth. I am thankful to each of you who support this group, blogging, organizing, coming through and delivering beyond expectations. Our collective enthusiasm and talents have been recognized after just one year of solidarity. Thank you, each of you are helping in our success. I know there is strength in numbers, but this year I have seen it play out beyond my wildest dreams! - Allison of TigerLilly Shop

We are all thankful for you, the community that allows us to share the things we love. Happy Thanksgiving!
