New One Little Word Challenge - Thankful

Hi friends!  It's the 15th of the month again and that means it's time for the new One Little Word challenge!  This month the word is...

THANKFUL

Here's what I came up with in my art journal...

October is always a great month for me - I love the changing colors of the leaves and the cool, crisp weather - just right for busting out cozy sweaters and hot tea. It's also the month that Michael and I got married, and this year we will celebrate our 7th anniversary! 

This year I have one more thing to be thankful for in October, - that I had the opportunity to  work for 35 years with an employer that was good to me, that I worked with people that I respect and admire, that I had a job that felt meaningful, and now - that I am able to retire and make art on a full time basis.  I feel very lucky!

So - what does the word "thankful" mean to you?  Come on over and play along with us at One Little Word!  Click here to go to the challenge!

Thanks so much for visiting me!  I will be back to blogging regularly on November 1st!  Stay tuned!

Can't wait to see more of your work now that you are a full time artist! Your attitude of gratefulness, joy and kindness will be missed at the 'ol HC. I love the layers on this piece!
