Grow the Gratitude Tag, Day 5

Rachel over at Rachel and fierce started up a Grow the Gratitude tag. Thank you Rachel for including me in such a great idea. We do need some positive out there in the world right now. Check out Rachel’s site and her post on her family. You have a beautiful family and I love how close you all are. Your kids will have many things to be grateful for when they are adults

Okay, this is how it works. Every day for seven days, you post one thing you are grateful for or how gratitude was shown on your day.

To grow the gratitude, each day tag a couple people to help it grow. We spend a lot of time always hearing the negativity on the news, social media, or whatever, so lets make it a little bit more thankful.


Have fun

show gratitude

Be sincere

Post everyday for seven days something that you were thankful for that day. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can be simple, or it could be how you showed gratitude to someone or vice versa.

Tag s few fellow bloggers to grow gratitude

Give a shout out to Rachel and fierce, who created the tag and the person who tagged you to join.

Day 5

My wooden bucket of yarn scraps were perfect for dresses for some wooden dolls I had.

I am grateful for the gift I was given to be creative.

I picked this huge selection of threads up at a swap meet for $2. Most of my art supplies are vintage or second hand items.

This is also a gift I love to share and teach others as well. I have been creating things since I was a little girl. Back then I would invite neighborhood kids over and we would all make art together, sharing supplies and just working together and getting along. I wish more kids would do this today.


We did not have all the distractions back then like we do now. I may not be the best at some things but what I can do I always do with love. Every little piece I design or make comes from my heart and soul. I really enjoy this hobby and gift I was given. I also love others out there in the world I come into contact with that are also using the gifts they were given.We are all born with a gift but it is up to us to discover it and always share those stories and talents with everyone else. Sharing is the best part of it.

Here in Arizona we have a lot of Native American artist. They  continue doing what their grandparents taught them. This artist in the photo above told me he works a little at a time on his rugs. Some rugs can take up to a year to complete. The wool yarn he uses he gets from sheep in his area. They hand dye the wool. I would love to see that whole process.

I tag one blogger I follow for the beautiful art they design and share with us, such beautiful pottery. You definitely were given a special gift. The other blogger I tagged because I want to read more of what she has to say. The gift she shares with us is in her voice. I heard somewhere there are three types of people, the ones that fight, the ones that help the fighters and the ones that stay silent. Unfortunately the majority of us are the silent. Thank you Moodyoops for speaking your voice, for being a fighter and thanks for following me. Your post titled We’ve taught our children to be angry is so true. It reminds me of that quote by Albert Einstein.

‘” The world is a dangerous place,not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

    I like the colorful pics in this post! You certainly do have the gifts of creativity and positivity. I love that you used to invite neighbor kids over to create! My little craft girls have missed me since I ended craft days in August so I’m throwing them a Christmas craft party December 7th.
    Happy Thanksgiving! 🧡
