Thankful for My Craft November 12&13

Welcome to the "Thankful for My Craft November 12&13 Blog Hop.  You should have found your way to my blog from Jen - .  If for some reason you just happened upon us, make sure you start at the first with Alina -

Just as the title implies, I enjoy crafting so much.  I am blessed to come from an artistic family.  My Grandfather was a mechanic by trade, but was also quite an artist.  I included for today's entry a charcoal of a train he illustrated. 

Blog Candy - I am giving away a $20 Gift Certificate from KinderStampO.  To qualify, register as a follower of my blog, leave your contact information, and please leave feedback.  Hope you have a great Saturday and enjoy what we have prepared for you.

Now hop on over to Lori ~ to continue.
