Is that a blog train I hear???

Share
Happy Saturday, everyone!  I hope you're all doing well and enjoying your DSD activities - whatever they may be.. I'm right smack in the middle of a move, and am most likely packing as you read this, but I am trying to carve out at least a little bit of time for some scrapping fun.. But anyway, that's not why you're here.. You're here for a freebie!  :)  You most likely came from Wendy's blog, so congratulations for making it to your next stop!  ;)

Today, I have a little cluster for you - created using the mega collab, Many Thanks, which you can get FREE with a $20 purchase from ScrapMatters.. But first, I just wanted to share a wee tid-bit with you of something I'm thankful for .. {you may notice a theme as you progress down the train..}

As I mentioned earlier, I'm right in the middle of a move - it's not a "huge" move, as far as I'm concerned.. I've been living with my parents for the past 2.5 months in Utah while DH has been in NYC looking for work.. As things sometimes happen in life, our plans changed, and new and unexpected opportunities came up, and he was offered a job at the school we got our BFAs from, which is just 2 hours away from my family, and 12 from his - opposed to the cross-country journey it would been if we had ended up in NY.. So he's in MO right now, loading our stuff from storage into a truck to drive it home {long story, but we didn't want to make the big NYC move with all our stuff with no guarantee of work, so we left it in MO, where we had most recently been for grad school.}  Lucky me, I only have to deal with the 2 months' worth of things to box up, lol..

So what am I thankful for?  I'm thankful for family - for my small family of 3, but also for immediate and extended families that will be nearby, for being watched over and guided in the direction we needed to be at this time in our lives, and most especially that within the next 24-48 hours we will be together, as a unit of 3, in our own place, with our own stuff, doing whatever we want, with a wonderful hope for our future..

SO - enough of the mushy stuff.. let's get to your freebie!

{freebie expires Nov. 13th}

The next stop on your travels today is Heather.  But if you get lost along the way, you can always check out the master list on the ScrapMatters blog.  And of course, if you haven't already, be sure to take a peek at all the awesome activities we have going on throughout the rest of the weekend.. Happy scrapping!  :D

First off, thanks for the freebie!
Second, I hear you, Amber. We've been with my parents (even in UT too!) for 5 months now while my husband (who just graduated from law school) looks for work...challenging time, but still many many things to be grateful for.
