    I am most thankful for my husband and the beautiful son that we made together. I know that no matter how tough things get (and right now there pretty tough) my husband will always be there to lighten the load.

  • Sue Anderson

    I am most thankful for my wonderful husband, Lars. He is not perfect, but he is perfect for me. I had a really traumatic childhood, and I think that Lars is my consolation from God to make up for what I had to endure. I love him so much, and most importantly, he loves me…and shows it all the time. I am most thankful for that. 🙂 (I’m 45 yrs old, and was never able to have children, though I wanted them desperately. That’s why I didn’t put that my kids were what I was most thankful for.)

  • Debbie c

    I am thankful for time with family…it can be taken away in an instant, every second is prescious and you dont want to look back and regret not seeing someone as much as you can. I dont want to ever live with regret.

  • Debby J

    This year, I am most thankful for my wonderful hubby, who has been so supportive with my decision to stop working. He has this wonderful insight into things and always looks at things calmly(unlike me who panics first). He was the one who told me to be happy and whatever I decided he was with me. After about 2 weeks of being home, my hubby turned to me one day and told me he loved having me home all the time and he didn’t care what sacrifices we had to make. It was then that I knew he was the best thing that has ever happened to me and for this I am so very thankful. And all this after 30 years of marriage too!!!!

  • Donna Dial

    I am thankful First for my God who has truly blessed my life.Next I am so thankful for my family and my friends.I am also thankful for people like you who share their time and talents for us. Happy Thanksgiving Megan to you and your family

  • Natalie

    I am thankful for my family, their encouragement and support means the world to me. Especially after the loss of my grandma this year. Being part of a big family is truley a gift from God.

  • Kathy Camps

    I am most thankful for my family (hubby and 4 children) as they make my life that much more complete and definately thankful for mine and my husband’s health – last couple of years have been challenging 🙂

  • Kathleen

    In these bad economic times (plus living in the impovershed State of Michigan) I am thankful for what I do have and the opportunities to help those without.

  • Karen

    I’m most thankful to have spent the last 7 days of my mothers life with her. We were 1200 miles apart and something just told me to go home. Always listen to your voice inside!

  • Ruth

    I am so thankful for God’s grace and the gift of his son Jesus Christ. I am also thankful for the family God gave me and that our Marine son will be with us for this Thanksgiving. The first time in four years! We’ll all be together this year. Soooo happy.

  • Scrappin Dhilly

    My family and I have had a very rough year with a family illness and then a death of a family member, I have also had so many health issues this year and I finally feel like things are getting a little better. I am thankful for my family and my health, cheers to a better year ahead!

  • Betsy Rowan

    Way to go Megan on all your endevours! I am thankful for my family and my job. Some things changed at my work and I am so grateful to have been given another opportunity in a different position.

  • marcia

    I am most thankful for the love and kindness of those around me. We get caught up in our own world and forget about others. I am thankful to be able to share a smile and akind word with someone I know or don’t know. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Stephanie Justice

    I am most thankful for my three healthy children. Sometimes I forget to realize just how fortunate I am. When life gets me down and I think my world is falling down around me, my children do or say something that makes me realize that nothing can be that bad. My children are my pride and joy and everyday they amaze me.

  • Jody

    I am thankful for so many things or perhaps I should say people. My husband, 3 children, my entire family and my In-Laws…..I am truly blessed!

  • April

    I can never be thankful enough for the undeserving grace that God gives me every second of every day. This world is so fast-paced that it is easy to get caught up in the moments that take our view off of Him. In those moments, I am eternally grateful for this grace.

  • Tamara

    I am most thankful for my wonderful husband and two daughters. We have had a rough time lately, but I am very greatful that we have each other. 🙂 Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  • Stacey Halbgewachs

    I am most thankful for my faith. Everything in my life would be so totally different if I did not have the faith in God that I have…and the faith in me that He has. My faith has brought me though many hard times including when the doctors told us only hours after our middle son was born to prepare ourselves and our family to say goodbye. I just could not accept that we were not going to get to raise this precious little boy and set out calling all our family and friends starting a Prayer chain. Our prayers were answered and Braydon is now 4 1/2 and thriving! I truely am thankful for all that God has done for us. Never underestimate the power of Prayer and always live with a Thankful heart. This is just one of the reasons I am constantly telling my friends to take the time to “enjoy the moments”, don’t let them pass you by.

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving Megan (and tell Bensen Happy Birthday!)

  • Judy Hyde

    I am most thankful for my family. My daughter graduated from college in May, and though still looking for a job, has some prospects in sight. My son graduates from college in December and hopefully has a long term substitute job lined up. My husband is the love of my life and has always been there to share the load and support us through the years. Good Luck to all that you have going on business wise and Happy 4th Birthday to Bensen next week. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and I look forward to hearing all your news next week.

  • Sandra Christman

    I’m thankful for all the blessings God has granted to me and my family. But this year is different, my mom is dying. I’ve had to put her in an Assisted Living Facility here in Fl. I sit by her bedside most days just visiting, but this is my mom’s last Thanksgiving and we will spend it with her. If she is not able to come to the table , then we will eat in her room keeping her company. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy having Sean to help you with those beautiful children.

  • Christeen Baker

    Ohh I love giveaways. I am most thankful for you Megan because if I hadn’t found your site I would not have discovered Cricut and all of your great videos. I have only been doing papercrafts since April but my skill level and confidence in what I make has all been because of your tutorage. I am doing all the invitations, bombonierre etc etc for my daughters wedding and the few people I have shown the samples too can’t believe how good they are and that is because of the skills you have taught me. I love ARS, CRD and PaperLayerz and check in every day.

  • Tracy

    I’m grateful for my family & friends. For all those who inspire me to be a better person, mother, daughter and friend. For all the scrapbookers who share there wonderful idea’s to get others inspired. For God allowing me to be, just me.

  • Glynda

    I am most thankful for my beautifu family, daughter-in-laws and my grandson. I truly appreciate all my friends and the freedom to browse the internet and learn so much from all the talented and creative people on this site. Thanks for all you’ve done to keep me motivated!

  • Nancy Lee

    I am most thankful for my husband and God for getting me through this most difficult time. See I lost my Mother 4 weeks ago while I was on vacation. She was 94 and she was getting to the stage I could no longer take care of her and had to be put in a nursing home which I felt so awful about, also early this year I had to have back surgery which also made it difficult to take of my Mother. My Mother had alway lived with me and it is very difficult to be without her. My husband has been there for me all the way. I will always regret that I took that vacation and was not there for her because I have always been there for my Mother. She was doing fine when I left and I was visiting my brother in Ohio when we got the call she took a turn for the worst but I did not make it back to Florida in time. My husband supports me in my crafting and has built me a beautiful craft room where I can go to get comfort and lose myself in my crafting. Thanks to you for helping me to keep interest in crafting. God Bless and hope you and yours have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  • SiskiyouSue

    Family and friends. Ten years ago we moved back “home”for my husbamd. We both found wonderful jobs, we renewed old friendships and made new friends. So in addition to having each other and our two great children, we now have a great group of friends. We get together every Friday night whenever we can. God blessed us when we thought we had hit the ground hard and might never recover.

  • pattie weingardt

    I am thankful for so many things. My wonderful husband and kids and grandbabies and lots of friends. Thankful for all my online friends I may never even meet but am so grateful for them all. I want to wish you all a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

  • Bobbi

    First of all I am thankful for a loving Savior, Jesus Christ. Then for my husband who loved me thru a very bad brain surgery that left me with life altering changes. I think it was rougher on him than me but he showed me that he would always be there for me and loved me through some pretty tough times when even friends could not.

  • Tina

    There are many things I am thankful for. So here are just a few I am thankful to God as he helps me get though each and every day. Next my family and friends the last two years were very hard and my family and friends help my husband and I get through it. Next I lost my dad last September and that made my sister who has been gone move back home from Ca. after being gone for 25 years. This will be the first time since that her , my youner sister and I will be together for the holidays. Thanking God for everything in my life.
    Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving.

  • Angela

    First and foremost, I am ever grateful for my relationship with our heavenly Father Jehovah and for the ransom of his son, Jesus Christ, for without him – we would not be here. And my loving husband of 25 years. I love him more and more every day. My parents, they are just super and can’t wait to get away with them soon. And although I work full time, my friendships are still in tact and continue to blossom.

  • Jilly

    I am most thankful for my family ,friends and especially my step daughter Katie like a real daughter and such a power of strengh after the passing of her dad (my rock and best friend) how could I have carried on without her. and above all my crafting friends, who’s inspiration makes life creative and fun. My thanks to you Megan for helping me use my beloved cricut for even more Joyous projects! Thank you too to Provocraft for creating Cricut in the first place,
    I am also thankful for the ability to say Thank you!
    Happy Thanksgiving to all

    I am so thankful for the Grace of God that we have been blessed with such a beautiful family and for the many blessings that he has given us. Believe me, times have been rough at times but I know that God will always carry us through. I am so thankful that my family tolerates my need for crafting. PLUS!!! Everyone knows how absolutely thankful I am for my CRICUT!!!

  • Jill

    This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for my boyfriend’s family, who has had a very rough year. His sister and brother-in-law had a near fatal motorcycle accident in February and his parents were hit by a drunk driver in May. They both spent the better part of 5 months in the hospital and are finally healthy enough to go home. I’m also thankful that my best friend will be home from Afghanistan in a few days.

  • Christine Ames

    I am thankful for being made in God’s image and being one of His children. I am so grateful for the creativity and uniqueness that God has placed in each one of us, and the ability to use my creativity to bless others through personal gifts and cards that I can make.

  • Sheri Wheatley

    I am most thankful for the life I have, I may wish things to be different, or easier, but this is the life I have and I’m very thankful for that.

  • Priscilla Leddy

    I am most thankful for my family and I am especially grateful for the fabulous place that I work. I work for a Medical Ministry for low income people with no insurance. This place is like working with angels. Everyone is so committed to helping people that are down on their luck. We treat not only their illness but we treat the whole person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Many days our doctors pray with the patients before they finish their visits. What a blessing.

    • Candace Oberlin

      I am thankful for you Megan! Your emails and videos have been an inspiration to me through some otherwise tough times. You seem to really try to make each and everyone of us feel special and like a friend. If nothing else I think you should be recognized for all your hard work and dedication. It couldn’t have been easy to get all of this going wit your videos, paper line, and now glue line. You are an amazing person and we are all truly blessed to be a part of your life. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you and yours beyond measure. Congratulations to whoever wins!

  • Darla Haverstock

  • Kathi Carlozzi

    I am most thankful for my health and my family. I just recently lost my furrbaby, Flyboy. He was 10 years old and I know he is in a better place. However, I am thankful for two little black furrbabies that I recently adopted. They have filled the hole in my heart left by Flyboy.

    also thank you Megan for what you do to inspire us and make crafting more enjoyable.

  • Kim T

    I am thankful everyday for my wonderful husband and children who have had to care for me for the last 8 years when I feel it is/was my duty to care for them as a wife and mother. They have been such a great support and comfort and even though my youngest son is the only one of my children still living at home the other three are always calling in, on the phone or sending letters to make sure I am fine or not in need of anything. Now this may seem easy but considering one of them is serving in Afghanistan at the moment you will appreciate how difficult contact is. I am so so thankful to them everyday of my life.

It is a great time to relax, laugh and eat good food. The pictures that are taken and the ones we enjoy from years gone by are priceless! As we get older it sure is easy to forget some of the past events but the memories we share through our photos help keep the heart, mind and the laughter young and fresh!!

  • donna martin

    I am thankful to live in a country that has freedoms we enjoy everyday. The freedom to choose our religion, who we marry, our occupations just to name a few. I am thankful that my spouse has served in the navy to insure the continuation of these liberties.
    I am thankful everyday for the wonderful family God has blessed me with. I cannot imagine how life would be without all of them.

  • Nica P

    I’m thankful for many things in my life but recently I’m most thankful for the trip to Italy I was able to take this summer with my 2 daughters. Unfortunately a couple of weeks ago I lost my aunt who lives in Italy from an instant, unexpected heart attack. I’m grateful we were able to spend some quality time with her this summer. At 67 who would’ve thought it would have been my last time seeing her…

    I am most thankful for my family and health. This past year has been one of the most eventful I have experienced and included my daughter’s wedding to a wonderful man and a major move (we are still adjusting). All this “stuff” brings to my attention the small blessings of every day that I am thankful to for. Thank you.

  • Cathy

    I am thankful for my family! I am blessed with two children and six grandkids who are my life. I am thankful for the love of my mother who has been ill the past year, her love is always never ending. I am thankful for my five brothers, unfortunately I only have one of them left. Cancer has taken some of them. They taught me how precious life really can be and to tell the people you love that you them love while you can, for tomorrow they may not be here.

  • Deb

    I am thankful for everything in my life I am blessed beyond measure. But I am most thankful for my daughter coming back from the brink of death after an attack on her vehicle overseas in the air force. God is good and I am thankful she is alive today to be able to watch her children grow!! Thank Jesus..

  • Renee hamschin

    I am most thankful for my wonderful family. My mom and dad taught me the family values that I live by today. Always there supporting, loving me when I was not so lovable. I miss them both. Dad passed away in 1996 and mom in 2009. My sister who showed me the way to Jesus as she did the entire family. She was an angel! She passed at the young age of 40. I miss them all but I think about how blessed I am to have had them in my life.

  • Judy Borgia

    I am most thankful for GOD, my family, and my family’s health. I had a scare with my son having cancer, but he has been cancer free now for 18 months. My sister also had breast cancer and has been cancer free for two years.

  • Debbie Fisher

    I am thankful for many things, some of which I take for granted – like having healthy children and grandchildren who are able to breathe without a struggle. A 17 year old friend of my grandson has suffered with cystic fibrosis since she was 3 years old. She was put on a double-lung transplant list last year, and she was recently given the gift of new lungs. I am thankful for families who see through their grief and donate their loved one’s organs to help others live. I am thankful for organizations like COTA who help families whose children need organ transplants. I am thankful.

  • Dawn K

    My thankfulness this year is bittersweet. I will try to make this as short as possible. My grandmother fell victim to the horrid Alzheimer’s disease about 20 years ago; my grandfather cared for her at home until he had a stroke at home making her dinner. He went to the hospital and she went to a care facility. My grandmother passed away two weeks later while my grandfather is still in a skilled care facility. Back in May when this all happened, I flew in to “say goodbye” to my grandmother.

    (Here’s the sweet part). While I was there those three days, I had the pleasure of being re-introduced to one of my younger cousin’s that I had not seen in almost 22 years (life always got in the way). Out of this meeting, she and I have become VERY close over the last few months. Though I missed her childhood, I will not miss another day of her life. We talk daily now and I cannot imagine my life without her. I never had a sister, or children. Because of our age difference, she is both to me. God puts us where we need to be at the time we need to be there. I am grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to meet her all over again.

  • Bonita

    Obviously I’m thankful for my relationship with God and for my family and friends. But beyond that I am grateful for the joy that paper crafting gives me as I stay home to be a care giver for my wonderful mother.
    Thank you for sharing your creations.

  • Connie Gage

    I am most thankful for my hubby who helped me and our church friends who have recently helped us with meals being brought in which helped hubby so much they just dont’ know how much they have helped us…. and thankful for my 4 children, I’d broken my leg and couldn’t put any weight on it, have a rod in my leg now broke the fimur, plus I have rods, screws on both ends of my spine as well but you know our church friend showed me do not give up which I felt like during this time. I am now up nad walking now and have a bad limp but may always have that now…so thankful so much for family and friends.

    I am always looking for the right kind of adhesive for my projects.
    This Thanksgiving I am most thankful for my family – and particularly proud of my oldest son, Tony – a Senior in High School who is finalizing all of his college applications. He has done so well – but I will miss him terribly when he is gone!

    have a great Thanksgiving!

  • Barbara Duel

    Wow…I have so much to be Thankful for! I think when we go thru trials and tribulations, it seems difficult but;
    I am reminded daily of things others go thru and begin to realize mine could be a lot worse. The LORD has blessed my family and others in so many ways, I Thank and Praise him for it!

  • Brenda Cheek

    I am so thankful that I have a GOD who loves me and forgives me and I live in a country that is free. I am thankful that I have a family I love and that loves me. I love to craft things for family and friends and see their face when they open it and they say “did you make this”. Thank you for all you do for others and keep things coming.

  • Barb A.

    I am thankful for my 91-year old mother and significant other who live with me; as well as all my family (children, grandchildren, neices and nephews), for friends, for our military who is/have fighting/fought to keep our nation free. I am, also, thankful for all the ladies and gentlemen who work hard and share their ideas and talents on their blogs.

  • Shari

    I am so thankful for the good health and love of my family. It has been a blessing to me that I have been able to be a stay at home mom all these years for my 3 boys (not always easy, but ALWAYS worth it!). I have volunteered in their schools and church and love that I am able to put my creative talents to work there! Your videos have helped make me better!

  • Mimi

    Hey Megan,I’m exciting about your Megan line.keep it up. I’m thankful for we can live safe and have food,heat at home and my hubby is back home. Happy thanksgiving everybody.

  • Jo Ann Nunes

    This year is extra special, since Hurricane Katrina 2005, my son & his family had to relocate to Austin, TX. My daughter and her family were still living here in Louisiana, and since I was not able to spend the holidays with both of my children and grandchildren since 2005, it was so empty and sad. Well my son & his family have moved back to Louisiana, and we all live within 10 miles of each other, so I am so thankful they are home and we are now a family again, I am truly blessed and thankful.

  • Marcie

    I am most thankful that my 3 sons are healthy and happy and are in stable relationships. I am also thankful that my husband and I are fortunate to be able to travel this wonderful country full-time. We have seen so many wonderful places and now have great friends everywhere we go!

  • Kathy S.

    I am most thankful for my hubby and our children. I am also thankful for the opportunity to finally get to know my birth mother. My parents divorced when I was just a baby and my stepmother would never allow me to see my birth mother. I am finally working on a relationship that most everyone takes for granted, this is our first holiday season together that I will remember. Now that I am almost 50 I finally have a mommy :o).

  • Brenda

    I am thankful for God and all of his many blessings (family, friends and more) given to us. He gave hubby and I 2 special gifts – Son 1, who has been our challenge and still is today. (But has allowed us to help others because of DS1). 8 years later God gave us another gift, Son 2, who will be 12 on Nov 23rd. DS2 is a true disciple, while active in church, school, sports, scouts, he still has time to provide special words during good and rough times to all. I couldn’t imagine my life without my sons. Thanks be to God. Happy Thanksgiving to All.

  • CJ

    I am thankful for my husband and little lady, my family and friends, a roof over my head, and both of us having jobs (my husband full-time and me part-time).

    This holiday season my family decided we are only giving each other one gift and we are going to volunteer at either a food pantry or elderly community (or both) to really appreciate all we have because we can still give to others less fortunate (our love and time). I CHALLENGE ALL OF YOU TO VOLUNTEER ALSO!

  • Gail Scott

    I am thankful for life – Jesus came to give us life and more abundantly. Everyday is a gift from God and an opportunity to love someone ~ Have a Great Day! ~ Gail ~

  • Cynthia Guy

    I’m most thankful for my family…blood and church. You, Megan, know how awesome MVC is! They’ve helped me out in so many ways over all the years I’ve attended there. And to have an amazing family that I grew up in and am married to is just awesome. My husband and kiddos are an amazing blessing as well. I could go on and on. But I won’t. Have a lovely day, Megan! 🙂 Thank YOU for all YOU do.

  • Penny Mourer

    Most thankful that God has a plan for my life that included being saved by his Son, Jesus Christ, and that I will have an eternal home in heaven.

  • Cindy

    I am so thankful that my family is so healthy. I look around and see so many people suffering from different illnesses and realize how blessed we are!

  • Debbie Moore

    Happy Thanksgiving! I am blessed to still have my parents with us to celebrate the holidays. I am blessed to have two WONDERFUL sons and daughter-in-laws. My family and I are blessed to have good jobs. I am thankful and proud of our military and honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. During this difficult time for our country, I am thankful I live in a country which allows me freedom of speech, freedom to come and go as I please, and freedom to worship. I am thankful and happy that I have support from others to craft and have friends that enjoy it also. Finally I am so very thankful for my husbands love, loyalty, support, and understanding. May all have a happy and blessed holiday season!

  • madonna

    I am thankful for my family.I don’t know what I would do without them.They are the only thing that really matters. I thank my parents for raising us in a Christian home and teaching us how to love and care not only for each other but for all people. And it did not matter what faith, color, rich or poor, you respect all. And they taught us all life is very precious. And even in their dying they still taught us tolerance and courage. I’m so blessed with the family I have! Happy Thanksgiving.

  • Colleen

    I am most thankful for the 16 years I had with my mom. 30 years ago this Thanksgiving Day, my mom passed away. And even though I was only 16, she somehow managed to instill so much into me (and all of my siblings) to last a lifetime. Thirty years later, she is still forefront in my mind every single day. It sustains me, it wraps me. it makes me who I am. I’m so very, very, very grateful and humbled by God giving me to her and for the miracle of what she was to me in such a short period of time.

    And I’m really grateful for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, too. :0) I just had to add something light & humorous here, too.

  • Ann

    I am first of all most Thankful that God so loved me that he was willing to die on the cross to save all of us if we ask. Then I am Thankful to God for my family that He has so blessed me with that we are all healthy and live in a place where we are able to experience freedoms like none other. I am also Thankful that God has blessed me with the gift of creativity otherwise I would have not been looking for creatives websites when I found yours which is a Blessing to be a part of!!

  • Amie K

    It is not always easy, but I am thankful that God put me where he has today. I hope He knows this because I do not tell Him nearly often enough. Thank you!

  • Gail

    We all have so many things to be thankful about. For me it is God first then like so many others my family.
    As I was telling my residents yesterday after bible group, I am so thankful for them. Their generation had it rough with the wars, the depression, losing children and husbands for our freedom. They have blessed me greatly in the knowledge that they are proud of their sacrifices. God bless them and to all who fight for our freedom.

  • Tonia Carr

    I am so thankful for my husband and supportive group of friends. Although it has been two years since my mother passed at the age of 49, I am still devastated. She had me when she was barely 16, and we grew up together, but breast cancer took us apart. My husband of 12 years though is the strength I need to go through each day and I did not realize the wondrous support of my friends until this event. There will be an empty spot at Thanksgiving table, but my heart will be warm with fond memories.

  • Jan Mougel

    I am Thankful for Family, Friends & Faith. First I Have a wonderful husband and three great kids. As my kids are becoming adults it is nice to know that sometime way in the future our family will grow. My best friend is always a phone call away. I have great faith in God and that no matter God is always there.

  • Cindie s.

    I am thankful all my kids live in the same state /city with me! (no more skyping!!)

Whew, I feel better now! Lol thanks for listening Meghan!

  • Vera Conner

    I am Thankful to be an American, and can live free, and for all our men and women who make it so!

  • Jan Lynn

    Family and friends are so much to be thankful for. This year our family is missing two very important family memebers, my MIL who we lost in May and a beautiful niece (only 21 Years old) who we lost in July. Our is not to question why but to know they are both in heaven looking over us and that they will be present in spirit this holiday season .

  • Jenise

    I thank God for his wonderful blessings. Without his favor I would not be as blessed as I am. I am greatful for my wonderful husband, Kids, and job.

  • Linda F

    I’m thankful for salvation. What Jesus did for us on the cross is everything- without salvation nothing else lines up in life. That is always my first prayer for my family, friends and prayer request. No matter what happens in life, if you have salvation, you know that everything is going to be alright and God will take care of you.
    Thanks for letting me share and have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  • Max Park

    I am most grateful for my life and wonderful family! My daughter gave birth to a strong, healthy and bright baby boy three months ago. She has tumors, is over 35; and was told by doctors that she would never be able to get pregnant or carry a baby to full term. I am so grateful that we know God; and that he fills our hearts, minds and souls with hope.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and believe in miracles!

  • Sandy Bayles

    I just love my family!!

  • Jackie Beechner-Scallan

    I could not begin to list all the things I am thankful for. At the top of the list would be that there is someone (in 3 forms) that loves me so much He would give up his life, shed his blood, for me 🙂 He has blessed me time and time and time again with a wonderful (ok, so they are a little nutty 🙂 ) family, a man who is almost all things personified in Jesus, 4 beautiful “furchildren”, friends that make my world go ’round when no one else seems to, and a job where every single shift I work I get to be reminded of the wondrous glory and miracle that is life…. I am thankful that He has blessed me with the talent to express myself creatively, and I am thankful for the blessings of home, food, and fellowship. I am thankful finally for my home and country, and the men and women (and their families) who make the ultimate sacrifice daily so that I, my family, friends, and loved ones, may continue to enjoy those freedoms we take for granted…. Happy, Joyous Thanksgiving everyone!

  • Beverly White

    I am most thankful to God for my family. We are a close family. My in-laws come to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving so we can all be together every year. My husband and I are both blessed to have our parents still with us, great siblings, nieces and nephews… Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for the chance to win!!

  • Susan

    I have so many things to be thankful for–even in a bad economy. First, of course, is that I have a heavenly Father who loves me and is always there in my ups and down. Secondly, I was raised with a legacy of love through godly parents, grandparents, and now families on both sides who are Christian and very loving and sharing individuals. Also, somehow God has provided the means this year so that my husband and I have been able to go to Haiti to help others. And finally, I give thanks daily for our three children who are wonderful individuals committed to serving God. How blessed I am!

  • Janice J

    I am so thankful everyday for my Heavenly Father, and my faith. I feel so grateful that our Heavenly Father loved me so much that he blessed me with my beautiful son, that he believed in me, trusted me, that I would do what is right, and raise a beautiful child alone. It has made me stronger than I ever thought possible, Leading and teaching him to be a wonderful young adult. He has such a wonderful spirit,and has a true testimony of our faith, and it pleases me to know to know that I have raised such a special person. I am so thankful that my Heavenly father has blessed me with so much, that I can’t complain, I have faith, and I will never be alone.

Happy days ahead!

  • Jessica Flynn

    I am thankful for my family. This time last year we did not have a home. It was difficult to be together as a family. My husband and our 4 kids were hopping around from motels and commuting the kids over an hour to and from school. The stress of not being able to let our kids be themselves and not having a place to keep our stuff. Was definitely a difficult time for us. We are so THANKFUL for a place to call home and be together. We are blessed!

  • Jennifer Martin

    So much to be thankful for, and so great to remind myself of that fact! I am most thankful for an amazing son who at 11 is insightful, thoughtful, giving and fun. He is always making sure his Mama is happy (not that is it his job). He is a daily reminder of his wonderful daddy who we lost 9 years ago.

  • Sheryl Smith

    I am thankful for God’s blessings in my life which are too numerous to mention but mostly for my husband and family. When I read some of the other posts here, I feel even more grateful that I still have my mom with me at age 76, even though she has had many health and financial worries. Everyone in the family has jobs or is in school and our health has been mostly good. I feel especially blessed by my 4 yr. old granddaughter who brings so much joy to all of us. Perhaps the greatest blessing God has given us this year is that my son who is 35 has returned to church with a fervor and has now gone every week for over 7 months. It warms my heart so!

  • Ema Perez

    I am most thankful for just living, having great friends and family. And the best thing that I have in my life my two sons. Which I am so proud of.

    Hope everyone has a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.

  • Norma Arriola

    I’m most thankful for all of my 6 childre and 2 grandchildrenn, I was just released out of the hospital, but while there all I thought about is not being home for Thanksgiving. I just turned 50 and I’ve always had them over for the Holidays; just the thought of not being with them had me in tears. My daughter-in-law called me to let me know that the kids wanted to talk to me and when I got on the phone they asked me if I felt better because they wanted to come over to eat my turkey. That touched my heart so much and had me in tears. Thank GOD that I’m out in time to cook that bird that everyone in my family enjoys every year.

  • Charlotte Cornett

    I am most thankful for my salvation, becasue without God I do not know how we would have made it the last 3 years.

Thank you for the chance to win, would love to try these!! I still have PaperLayerz on my wish list : )

  • Carmen Elrod

    I am MOST thankful to have the Lord in my home, for without him I wouldn’t be able to enjoy all of the many other blessings in my life which include my wonderful husband of 31 years! He is 61 years old and works two jobs to support our family, since I have Fibromyalgia and unable to work outside of the home. I feel beyond blessed to have found you, Megan. I look to you for inspiration and you have taught me so much about crafting in the paper world! I would be so lost without your fun and creative ways of teaching! Thank you from the bottom of my heart~ Happy Thanksgiving to you and your beautiful family!

  • Lynda Coffey

    Since I am in Canada, we have had our Thanksgiving but regardless of whether it is mine in Oct. or yours in Nov., or any other day of the year, I am thankful to be here to enjoy all my activities and this world of ours.

Thank you, Dear One.

  • Jeannette Stecik

    I am always so thankful for my beautiful family. Last Friday my daughter-in-law and 2 yr old grandaughter were in a bad car accident and both came out ok. My son went to a Med Express on Monday and had a boot put on his foot for a severly bruised foot and on Tuesday y 7 year old grandaughter found out she has walking pneumonia. All are doing well but things like that make you realize how preciouse life and family are. So many have so much more to deal with and keep going with an incredible outlook on life. I am so lucky and thankful for my family.

  • stacy Blankenbaker

  • Dee Dee

    I am thankful to have my children and grandchildren with us this year. Last year I had just gotten out of the hospital and my husband doesn’t cook so he and I had frozen dinners for Thanksgiving alone. This year the Lord has blessed us and my daughter-in-law doesn’t have to work on Thanksgiving, so she and my son can come and my daughter and her family will be here too. I am just so thankful to have my family with and to be able to cook for them all. My 9 year old granddaughter wrote a Thanksgiving plan for the family to put on for me the audience. We are using the cricut to cut out feathers and turkeys.

  • LeeAnn from NC

    I am very thankful to live in a great country with all of the freedom that we have and the advantages that we have here , the fact that we’re so much safer here than people in some other countries are…we are so fortunate and probably don’t take the time to reflect on that as often as we should. God has been so very good to us and I’m thankful for His love and his blessings, which of course include my wonderful family.

    WOW, what a tough question! There are so many things in life to be grateful for. The very first thing that came to mind was my hubby 🙂 He is the reason for so many great things in my life. We’ve been together since high school (16 yrs) and coming up on our 10 year wedding anniversary. He is the reason I have so much to be thankful for: my 2 beautiful boys (5&6), his unwavering love & support, his family who have been a second family to me & just our whole amazing life we have built together! There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t say “i love you” & that I don’t marvel at the beautiful person God has brought me. I realize how amazing it was to find each other at the tender age of 15 & to still be together & as much in love as we were from the first moment I saw him in my backyard! He is the greatest man I know (along with my Dad of course) 🙂 My wish is that everyone is able to find this true love at first sight because I’m living proof that it does happen!

  • Nicki Lundeen

    I am most thankful for my family and all of our health. I feel so very blessed to be surrounded by loved ones. There are so many people out there that have no one, and some are suffering with health issues. My prayers go out to all of those people. May all of you have a blessed holiday season surrounded by those you love. nlundeen at catt dot com

    I am very thankful that I have given another chance to live. I had decided on my own that it was time for me to go, but god has other things for me. He showed me its not time and that I have a man on my side that loves me no matter how I am. That I have 5 beautiful girls that are here for me and they need me. Sometimes we go through live thinking that it will all end if we put an end to them but that is not how it is. We have things in store for us in life. I am very thankful that I have a wonderful family.

    Happy birthday to Bensen !!!

    Thanksgiving is our children’s favorite holiday – I am thankful that we will host dinner and have all four of their grandparents in our home to celebrate with them.

  • Kayla

    How exciting! Congratz on new product launch! I am most thankful for the time I get to spend with my two kids. They are growing up so fast, and I want to cherish them in the moments all along the way. My 8 yr old served me breakfast in bed this morning!

  • Christine Patton

    Thank you for asking this, Megan. There is so very much to be thankful, but most of all I am truly thankful for my beautiful life. In spite of the many trials and tribulations that have come my way, still the blessings have been overflowing. I have a loving family, a roof over my head and the opportunity and means to use whatever meager talents I was allotted at birth or have learned or developed through the years. — Okay, I’m starting to get too emotional, but I don’t need to say more. Thanks for all you do, Megan!!

  • Annette Heffernan

    I’m so very grateful for my wonderful husband of 32 years and children and now a new grandchild (10 days old). Life is good! I love all your ideas and posts. Thank you.:D

  • Annette

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family. It’s hard to put down all the things I am thankful for. First & foremost, my faith. God is so good. Next would be my family. I am fortunate to have a great set of in laws as well. Thanks for the chance to win your new adhesives. Can’t wait to try them:)

  • Barbara Burgess

    I am thankful that I am not fighting my cancer alone. I have a wonderful husband/caretaker and tons of friends and people praying for me! I also am thankful that I started this wonderful hobby of card making. This is my therapy! Thanks Megan for all you do. I look forward to your emails and updates as well as your tutorials and the like…

  • Dawn

  • Lisa

    I am so thankful that the Lord redeemed me, gave me a new life–one with purpose, and allowed me to serve Him in translating His Word for those without it. What a privilege! What a joy!

  • Barbara Wallace

    This has been a difficult year for my family. My mom has been very ill. I am thankful that she has survived to be with the family for another Thanksgiving holiday. I am also thankful for the many blessings I have received.

  • Ellen-Ann Adler

    I am so very thankful that I have lived to be 72 (don’t tell) and have a wonderful family.two granddaughters to love and pretty good health.

  • Irene Mermelstein

    I am most Thankful for my incredible husband. He is the most wonderful man alive. He supports me and sometimes guides me in all I do. I had gastric bypass surgery on 2/18/11 and not only did he wait on me hand and foot and give me the eye if I was going to put the wrong thing in my mouth, he lets me buy all of the craft supplies any person could want and compliments me on my creations. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer 12 years ago and a heart condition 11 years ago and lives every day with joy. Medicine is controlling all of that stuff for now. I am grateful for each day I have with him.

  • Sandie

    I am grateful to my God who allowed me to live through two surgeries last year9one for cancer and one open heart surgery) with so much support from friends and family that I can now take up this new delightful hobby and meet even more wonderful people who exist in this world.

  • Lori M

    I am thankful for my family who is healthy. I am especially thankful that my dear Mother-in-law has finished her chemo and there are no signs of breast cancer. What a blessing

  • Sherry

    I am very thankful for my husband, two now grown sons and our dog. I know that withou them I probably would not be writing this now, I would be gone. These men, including the boy dog have kept me alive through many years of a very serous and continuing bout with overwhelming depression. And it all started with a mistake made during surgery I had 15 years ago. But my men have never given up on me and for that I thank the Lord each day.

  • Teresa Pirie

    I’m so thankful for my son. When Matthew was born we were told that our little one wasn’t going to make it. I knew that I wasn’t going to take that answer and that I believed he would and he did. Today Matthew is 7 years old and doing well. I couldn’t of done it with out my loving husband at my side . Matthew spent 18 months from birth in a hospital before he came home. So that is what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

  • Niki

    I am thankful for so many things this year. But one thIng in particular is to have a great husband that takes such good care of our famIly. I am thankful that in a time when so many people are struggling to survive this enconomy we have a home filled with love and that is all we need!

  • Divine Princess

    What is there not to be thankful for? Everything that happens to us, all the people that we meet and even the problems that we face are designed to get us to vibrate and expand our consciousness.

    I’m thankful for everything that life gives me. I am particularly thankful for my family, the peace that crafting gives me, the fact that life can be better when we make the decision to make it better, the fact that the universe always helps us to reach a higher ground, and for the generosity of people like Megan Elizabeth that share themselves in an unselfish way, and are willing to use giveaways to surprise us and brighten our day even more. This is a blessing! Thank you Life and thank you Megan for allowing me the gift of “today” to express what I’m thankful for.

  • angie s

    I am most thankful for having such a wonderful & generous God. He has helped my family & I thru many troubled times & given us many blessings. As we go thru life we take so many things for granite, this year will be sad around the holidays because my grandmother won’t be with us but I know she will be in spirit & will be in a much better place. I am also thankful my for hubby, family & friends. Thanks so much for all you do & hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  • Laura F

    I am most thankful for my family. I know a lot of people have said this, but I don’t need anything else but my family to be happy. My 10 year old had sinus surgery this week, and as we agonized over whether this was the right thing to do, I thought how awful my life would be without either one of my boys. It was a simple surgery, but close to the brain. I am much more appreciative of them, their personalities, their sense of humor, etc. A positive thing that came out of this was I stopped and realized how lucky I am. (He’s fine and doing great, all worries for nothing, thank goodness!)

  • Danita

    Some of these posts just bring tears to my eyes. I am so blessed. Thanks and praise go to my savior, Jesus Christ. He has blessed me with a loving family and I get all my creativity from Him.
    Thanks for the internet!

  • Kierstin S

    I am thankful for my family, for having a job that allows me to provide for my family, for having a place to call home, and for having a wonderful network of friends. I am truly blessed each and every day.

  • Anita Housman

    I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to meet such great & inspiring people in my life that have helped make me the person that I am today–even those who have been hurtful to me have provided me with a gift of knowledge. I too have my flaws, but those relationships & the people that have been a part of my life have helped build a personality within me that is based on honest introspection & unconditional love. That gift is priceless. While the good is always great, without the bad things life has to deliver, or the harmful things done to me or all around me, I would never know the good in life. I thank all those people who have walked that journey with me, even if it was only for a few steps, and for those who always lend me the support I need when I need, the knowledge that I’ve obtained from it, and the times that they’ve supported & thought for me when I couldn’t do it on my own.

  • Lissa M.

    I am MOST thankful for God sending his Son Jesus Christ that we may all be saved and live for Him, and with HIM one day. Then I am thankful for a wonderful family and all the many blessings we’ve had.

  • Carol S

    Thankful for the many years of artistic endeavors. My senior years are filled with thoughts of what I am going to next, and so thankful that I still have the capacity to follow through.

  • Shari

    Without a doubt, I am most thankful for our Lord Jesus, who saw fit to bless me my other most thankful for, my daughter. She is the true blessing in my life and the reason, I am sure, that God saw fit for me to be here. She inspires me to be a better human being, mother, friend and Christian. At 16, she has a great Christian foundation, her head on straight and is truly a beautiful woman, inside and out I am very blessed God trusted me with somone so precious and I thank Him everyday.

  • Susan Smth

    I am thankful that God knows best and that even though there are many days when we see through a fog and don’t understand why things happen to us, that HE has clear vision. As I get older, I can look back and see how all of the pieces of my life added up to work together for the life that God had planned for me. Do I love that life? Most of the time, but not always. It’s been a hard one. But nonetheless, God uniquely equipped me to live it through years of journeys that seemed to lead all over the place at the time, but which upon reflection, have been those obscure puzzle pieces, which really did have a place in the entire picture all along. I just couldn’t see it until more pieces had been placed on the table.

  • Janice

    I am thankful for my wonderful husband. I have had a health issue since last December. I can’t do much of anything that requires walking. He does the laundry, cleaning and most of the cooking along with all the other things that need to be done. He even helps me wash my hair. He pushes me around in my wheelchair in stores he would never go into before. The down side to that is he knows how much scrapbooking supplies I have but he still takes me to Archivers, Joann’s or Michaels when I ask. I am truly blessed to have him.

  • Karen

    I’m thankful for having my family and good health! My Birthday is also on Nov 22nd (My Dad’s Bday was also on my Bday as well as my parents anniversary plus every so many years Thanksgiving falls on that day–just one big celebration!)

  • Wanda

    I am most thankful for my family. Things may go wrond during your typical day to day doings but at the end of the day coming home to something only you created is the best thing. Something sooo “uniquely” you 🙂

  • Sharon M.

    I am thankful everyday for family & friends, BUT I am also thankful for the strangers in the world who make life more enjoyable. People who do not know you or owe you anything. That they may just even say Hi or Happy Holiday. Every time you turn on the news or open a newspaper most of what you read is horrible news. There is not enough good. We are too busy or afraid to do anything for anyone, for fear of whatever. Everyone needs a purpose in life & to feel like they belong. It doesn’t take much. to just say Hi or open a door for a person They don’t have to be old or handicapped. Try it See How good you feel & think how good the other person might feel. Its the little things that always seem forgotten, and it is all the little things that add up whether its the info we get about stamping or a Hi or a door opened for us. These things make us feel good & useful, and for these little things whether giving or receiving I am thankful, cause it has to make the world a better place in some small way. So I am saying Thank you for opening my door of Stamping and Crafting.

  • Dee Kortan

    As I get older I realize the best things in life are the simple ones. I am VERY THANKFUL for my family (52 and counting!) that are heathy and that almost all of us will be together for the holidays. We’ll miss one nephew who is stationed in Japan, but will talk with him that nite. There really isn’t anything so important that it should come before family. Life is short, and it can change in a spilt seconded, tell the ones you have how much they mean to you, and forget about all the little petty things. Be thankful for who you have in your life right now and treasure those moments.

  • Linda

    I am a sucker for new adhesives. Haven’t found a keeper yet….. I am so Thankful to God for my sweet husband. Married 40 years and he still brings me coffee in bed. He never gets upset when I choose to make cards or scrapbook instead of making our bed and picking up the house. He is my hero.

  • Susan Martiez

    As a mom without any family, I am so very thankful for having had such terrific parents that raised me with good old fashion morals ,values , and traditions that I have been able to pass to on to my beautiful girls. With the foundation they have received I know they will always feel comfortable in their choices and decisions and not struggle through life!!! So for this I am greatful.
    Happy thanksgiving everyone!

  • Sandra

    Like most everyone else has already said… I am thankful for my family. My husband of 31 years has always been there for me. He is also a great father to my four wonderful sons and a super fun ‘grandpa’ to our four adorable grandchildren. They all bring true joy into my like and they mean so very much to me.

  • Johanne L.

    I am most thankful for my daughters and my husband. They’re all in good health. Since I began to work again, I have less time to do crafts, but I always find a little bit of time to do what I love. Thanks for the chance and have a nice day.

  • Debbie O'Neal

    I am thankful for my wonderful husband of 30 years who 100% supports me in whatever I do, when I am sick and when I just need a friend to talk too. Our love has deepened every year we have been married and for that I am truly thankful. Thanks Megan for the chance to win some adhesive…would love to give these a try.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  • Susan

    I am thankful that we have the freedom to enjoy my family and friends on this eventful day. I thank the soldiers that have fought for our freedom and wish them the best of wishes. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful site and consider myself fortunate to be called one of the your friends. Keep up all of your hard work Megan as only good things come to those that endure the process of getting to their destination. You are truly god sent.

  • Julie Hiatt

    In this tough economy, I am thankful for my husband that provides for our family so that I can stay home and be my daughter’s mom. I know how blessed I am to have that opportunity. It wasn’t always possible for me to stay home and raise my children. My husband works hard and is a great provider and family man.

  • Nancy Alexander

    This year in particular, I am thankful for my 1st and only grandson that I will ever have. The fact that my daughter conceived and carried to full term is such a blessing. Thank you Lord!!

  • Janet

    I was in a car accident two weeks ago that was very traumatic. It constantly reminds me of how precious life is and we are here on this earth for what seems like a millisecond. I thank God for protecting me so I can continue to love my incredible husband, my fantastic son and his wonderful wife. I also am very thankful for you, Megan, who loves the Lord and freely shares the gifts He has given you!

    I am most thankful for the way God provides in his timing. I have been without an oven for over a year now. And someone just gave us a double oven and range top in very good condition. Now I can bake again just in time for Thanksgiving.

  • Tina

    I am thankful for The Moments. Megan, you alway say, “Enjoy the moments!” That rings so true for me. All moments, good and bad, are very precious. I have had 2 best friends who both lost their husbands unexpectedly at an early age. They are having to raise children and handle everything on their own. I am thankful for each and every moment that I have with my husband and children. You don’t know when your or someone you love’s last moment will be. Enjoy the moments!

  • Phyllis Freese

    I am most thankful for my family and extended family getting together for Thanksgiving. For the first time, we will be hosting my daughter’s boyfriend, who is in the Air Force, and will be deploying again in January. We will also be spending the holiday with our first grandson. What could be better than that?

  • Sheri

    I am truly blessed to have spent 19 wonderful years with the love of my life before cancer took him at the age of 41. He gave me two beautiful daughters which are a blessing each and every day.

  • Marion

    I am most thankful for my family and friends. When it is so easy to sway away from what one was taught as a child, my children are resisting temtations from others to not follow their dreams. With the help of God, they will stay the course He has set for them.

  • Ellie

    I am thankful for a wonderful God who supplies all my needs and has given me a wonderful family to celebrate with each and every holiday. God Bless you Megan and your wonderful family. 🙂

  • Dee

    I am most thankful for a loving God who has watched over me my entire life. Through many difficult times, personal and financial. The loss of both my parents 2 sisters, a brother and a number of other family and friends over the years. He is there to lift me up when I am down and has always brought me through the most difficult times even when they have been caused by my own stupidity. I’m thankful for all of my family and friends still with me and the wonderful man God brought into my life before my mother who was also my best friend passed away, for without him I would not have made it through the loss.

  • Grannybibi

    I am most thankful for living in the USA and being blessed with all the freedoms we have. No other country has the bounty we are blessed with.

    I am also so VERY thankful and grateful for the men and women of our military. I am so humbled by their willingness to serve and sacrifice for me. I pray for their safety each day.

    May God continue to bless us and keep us all in the palm of His hand.

    I love, love, LOVE having my family all together for Thanksgiving. So I guess what I’m most thankful for is the unconditional love and support of my family.

  • Crystal Nichols

    I am thankful that this year I am excited for the holidays. We normally leave for christmas, so I don’t decorate much if at all (gasp, I know some of you are). But this year God has really worked on me and I am excited to decorate for christmas. I am also greatful for my husband who keeps me grounded and my children who remind me that just because I have instilled something in them it is always their choice if they are going to act upon their values.

  • Michele

    This thanksgiving season I am most thankful for my sons sobriety. He made the choice for himself to go into rehab, has really worked on it and is making true heartfelt changes. He comes home on Tuesday. Another part of that sobriety is his renewed faith in the Lord. This is a young man that just six weeks ago was renouncing God. Many thankful blessing ga indeed!

  • Shirley E.

    Hi Megan
    Another give-away…You ROCK!

  • Debbie

    I am Thankful that we all can survive on the strength we get from God and are friends and family. It is a tough world out there and I pray for all of us as with the economy being what it is we all have been impacted in ways that have made us wonder what next. When I get like that I always turn to that inner strength we all have and push on. I have lost my home in this economy and hey it’s just a house. I am very new to card making so love to see everyone’s work and learn from the great ideas. Thanks everyone for sharing and caring. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and God Bless.

  • Nadine

    I am thankful for our parents who taughtus, by example, the importance of family. Our parents left us with the desire to stay in contact with friends and family no matter how busy we may be or how far way we may be geographicaly.

  • facsmom

    Thank you to God who makes all things possible. What rich meaning Thanksgiving has when all of what you are thankful for has come from Him. How shallow this holiday can be for those who are only thankful on the surface. Thanksgiving from the soul is priceless.

    Blessings to you and your family.

  • reina moore

    I am thankful each and every day for the blessings the Lord gives to me and my family. Even in trouled times it is his way of blessing us with his love and will guide us through.

  • Michelle

    I’m thankful for surviving a horrendous head on collision 7/1/09, and that no one was seriously hurt or killed (except my leg being partially severed). I’m thankful for wonderful surgeons, nurses, and my husband for making it possible for me to be able to walk again with my own foot and leg. I’m thankful for roses, puppies, friends, and family. Most of all I’m thankful to God, because he still needs me on this earth to love and pass it forward.

  • Marcie Smith

I know that during these uncertain times we all can always count on each other to see our way thru almost anything and that the good times have always out weighed the bad. Life is good and we all have alot to be thankful for. I choose to think the glass is half full rather then half empty. Wishing everyone the Happiest of Holidays!!!!! God Bless – Keep Safe thru this holiday season.
    Hugs Marcie

  • Fran

    I am most thankful for “a reasonable portion of health and strength”. I never knew what the deacons/ preachers that used that term in prayers really meant until my health scares started a few years ago. I am thankful for all that life has given me, even the negative things have worked for the good in my life.

  • Karen Baumgartner

    I am thankful for my wonderful Husband and children, God, and my friends that help me through the tough times of illness, and the good times of fun and memories.

  • Debi Mishael

    There is so much in my life for which I am grateful so I am going to just say that I am grateful that I see the blessings in my life and I am at a point where I can spend the majority of my time giving back to others and sharing the blessings I have received. I am grateful for that.

  • Angela Rogalski

    You know, I didn’t have to think very hard for this one . This afternoon I went to pick my husband up so that we can have lunch together. We just started this new Saturday lunch thing…just because we get to spend an hour or so together without thinking about anything but lunch. Well on my way there I passed a” food line” for the needy and homeless. My heart sank , the line was so long , so many people waiting for food. I made the sign of the cross and thanked my God for all that he has given me and my family. There was a time in my life that I can say I was “there” I know how it feels to need food , shelter and so on. I thank God for helping me through those times and for giving me all that he has.I pray that he helps each one of the people on that line to have a better life.I thank God for all the people who donate to feed the poor and I think we can all do much more .

  • Kimberly H.

    I am grateful for so many blessings this year… My parents are still in good health, my children are blossoming and are INCREDIBLE little human beings, my husband still turns my head and is amazing after nine years together. We are so very lucky to not be struggling in this horrible economy, and I am going to start getting paid to teach paper crafting in January. I am grateful every day for these and so many other blessings. They are too abundant to count!

  • connie janzen

    I am thankful for so many things, I cannot even start the list. Although I try to chat with God about them every day. For Thanksgiving weekend, I am most thatnkful for the fact that I can be home with my family in a country with so many blessings. I am thankful for the men and women who have given up time with their families, and those who have given their lives so that I can enjoy mine. I am also thankful that the boys I know who had been overseas are home this year, safe, with their families.

  • Cindy Masullo

    I am most thankful for my husband and daughter. We have had a very challenging year between health issues and job loss. Things are beginning to turn around and my life wouldn’t be what it is without them! I love them so very much and can’t wait to celebrate Thanksgiving with them. 🙂

  • Janice

    I am most thankful for my Family. My husband who is always so supportive. Our six children and their spouses. Our 16 grandchildren who are my joy. It is hard because we don’t live close to any of them but make special trips each year to see them. This year we have a new grandbaby expected in Dec. I also love your tutorials and saw you demonstrate the stick itz. I especially like that you can roll them to whatever shape you need. Thanks so much.

  • Ladine

  • Sarah joy

    I am so thankful for my family 🙂 God has blessed me with a wonderful family. A mother, who even though she suffers with a brain tumor, she never complains and keeps on serving others. A father, who lost his job yet continues to find ways to provide and be there for anyone who needs help. A husband, who strives to be the best husband and father anyone could ask for and more importantly is a man after God’s own heart and encourages me and his daughters to serve and love the Lord with all our heart. What could a lady ask for I am so blessed and so very thankful:)

  • Heather W

    I’m thankful for my family and the support that God has helped to provide us with over the last year. I look forward to spending time at the large family Thanksgiving Day gathering at my father-in-laws’ and all the noise that will come with it! The last year has been a challenge with learning how to teach my non-verbal autistic child and to educate the extended family as best as we can. I’m thankful to my Aunt & Uncle for showing their support for my mom and raising money and exceeding their goal in this years Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and that my mother has completed her treatment with no further signs of cancer. I’m also thankful for having a job that I could go back to since getting laid off of a new one!

  • Brandy Parisi

    I am most thankful that God gave my husband and me a second chance. When my husband had a heart attack in May and rallied through it, we realized that we had been given a second chance to live our lives to the fullest and enjoy every moment that we have together. It can all be taken away in a blink of an eye. At 61, I again see that 17 year old I fell in love with.

She will be 89 on November 27th. She is in great health. She walks everyday, reads, sews, and she is really good with history. I am thankful that I can spend time with her on the phone and talk to her, even if I can’t always visit her. She has seen a lot in her life time and she shares with me her memories of childhood, and it is so interesting to hear the stories of her growing up. I am very thankful to have her in my life. 🙂 Hugs, Francine

  • Sheila H

    I’m thankful to be alive and celebrating another Thanksgiving with my precious daughters and wonderful husband. Being in remission, after surviving four bouts with cancer, has taught me to cherish each moment God blesses us with. I’m also thankful for having discovered the great craft of scrapbooking – it makes it so enjoyable to work on preserving memories for my family.

  • Rhandi DeMars

    I always look forward to having the opportunity to try new products. The new items that you have developed are all amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. You are truly inspirational.
    One of things that I am really grateful for is my husband of 40 years. He is so supportive of my crafting habit and gives me no grief about the money that I spend.

  • Shelly Baker

    Well Megan as you know its hard to find one the to be most thankful for but today I have to say my 18 month grandson. He was 1lb 13oz. He is doing great with the exception of an eating issue and on Tuesday the 22nd he is having a procedure at UNC Chapel Hill to see if he has to have major surgery to correct it. So I will use the Stick Itz to make another scrapbook page to go into his 2nd year of Life book. Thanks for all your hard work.

  • Alicia

    I am thankful for my unborn child who will come in July and my wonderful husband and the life we have made together! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Joene

    Many years ago my first husband died of cancer at the age of 26. I was 24 and had two small children, at that time I was so devastated but had to go on for my kids. I finally married a good friend of my first husband and I am so thankful for him. We have been married for over 48 years. I live on a beautiful ranch in Montana which I am very thankful for too. We have three grown kids and four grandchildren which are such a blessing. I have the good Lord to thank for the way my life turned out. I am very thankful to live in the USA and to be an American. I am also very thankful to you Megan for all your videos an help that you have given us all. I found you quite by chance and what a blessing that is.

  • Alice Parcel

    I am thankful for the life itself, beyond the good and the bad, beyond all that I have been given and all that I have lost. My greatest treasures are my husband and our children. I am thankful for the help I have been given and being able to help others in return. I am thankful for so much in the experience of just living.

  • Dawn

    I am thankful for people like you that work so hard to bring us wonderful products and you knowledge. With these we can remember the wonderful events that happen in our lives to share and cherish forever.

  • Wendy

    Aside from being thankful for my family, home and my husband’s job, I am especially thankful for a break from school and having only 1 semester to go before graduating from my local Community College with an Associates Degree in Radiologic Technology. YEAH!!!! Perhaps then I will actually feel like using brain cells to scrapbook again. lol

  • Kelly Oswalt

    I am most thankful for the freedom to worship God. And of course my wonderful husband and children, life wouldn’t be the same without them.

  • Susan L.

    After a very difficult year, I am most thankful that God has given us the strength to overcome tremendous challenges in our lives and the hope for a brighter future.

  • Leanne Chester

    I am so very thankful for new opportunities. I have recently lost my job and instead of it being the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me, I am finding that new opportunities are presenting themselves everyday and I have the freedom to choose my future! I am so very thankful for the wonderful life I have been given and the opportunities that have come my way!

  • Brenda Paulsen

    This year I am most thankful for health; specifically that of my second oldest son who is 32 years old and a single full-time father. He was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia with the worst strain and markers possible in April of this year. His only chance of survival was a bone marrow transplant and then his odds were still not good. He received his transplant in early August and has dumbfounded the medical community by his progress. They say they have never seen anyone do as well as he has done. We say it is a miracle only God can provide through the prayers of faithful praying saints. I am also thankful for the the reconcilliation his illness brought to many family members.

  • Becky H.

    My niece (godchild) and her 2 daughters (one of them is my godchild also). I was never blessed with children but god sent me my family. They mean everything to my husband and myself. My nieces mother passed away when her 1st born was 11 months old. I was very close to my sister-in-law. I truly believe out of the sadness of her death that she gave me the precious gift of her family. For this I am most thankful for. My husband will always be my 1st blessing then my girls. I am so blessed and fortunate.

  • Melissa

    I am from La. So of course, my Mom’s gumbo.Heehee. I love that we all come together for a great food and to give thanks for all we have. We don’t have sit down thing. Everyone eats at their own pace.It’s a very chilled day with laughs and catching up.No doubt, I am most thankful for my 3 great kids. But I am blessed everyday for them, thanks to God.They both make me a better person.

  • Pat

    First I am thankful for my salvation through Christ. I am also very very thankful for my best friend who is also my precious husband. Also through that love the 4 precious children that God gave us and the 3 grandchildren.

  • Angie P.:)

    Im am mst thankful for having both my parents still with me. Now 90 and 85! I thank the Lord each and everyday for each day I get with them!

  • Smokie

    Megan you are such a sweet person. Happy birthday Bensen.
    I just found out that both my mother and grandmother need surgery before the year is out. They have both beat the odds that the doctors gave them years ago. Both surgeries are major with big risks but, I have my heart and mind set to be thankful for whatever the Lord has in store for all of us. I know that I’m thankful for the years He gave us so far.
    I am thankful for family, friends and my health.

  • Jen Naus

    I am thankful for my husband & son. I had a very high risk pregnancy 4 1/2 years ago. Right now we are going through a rough time. I lost my job a year ago & have become a stay at home Mom to take care of our son while still looking for a job. There’s nothing out there. So until I find something, I’m grateful for my husband supporting us! Time’s tough and watching every penny.

  • DianeK

    I am thankful for family and health. Wealth ( in a non-monetary sense) becomes us when we honor and appreciate each other. ‘Things’ may enhance our lives; but blessings come from and for those people in our lives that we care for and care for us…as well as those who may not know they need our care but are offered service of the heart in sublte ways. The grace of God provides for those who accept the gifts and use them for actions of praise and gratitude. It is so wonderful that demonstrations of simple love are visual presentations of the grace of God! Be ‘in-SIGHT-ful’ in Thanksgiving!

  • Debra Peloso

    I am soooo thankful for my life. I suppose we all have things we wish we change about our past but all those experiences have made us who we are today. Its kind of like if we didn’t have rain we wouldn’t appreciate the sunshine. My family, friends,coworkers and acquaintances have taught me so much about the person I am. Perfect? Absolutely not. But I always try to do the next right thing and in doing so God has not always given me everything I want but I always have everything I need. So on this Thanksgiving holiday I want to give a big shout out to everyone, even the strangers I have yet to meet, who will always make me a little better, how thankful I am for each and everyone of you and the experiences you bring to me. I hope your day is as joyous as I’m sure mine will be.

  • Shari Young

    I think Stick Itz are a great idea, can’t wait to try them. What am I MOST thankful for? First, My Feavenly Father and after that my family. I could go on and on, I try to count my blessings and be thankful rather than count the problems.

  • Linda W

    I am thankful for Adonai’s many blessings, my wonderful family, being healthy with a sound mind and having a yearly family reunion at my Uncle’s house with everyone bringing good food.

  • Mary Arellanes

    There are so many things for me to be thankful for this year. My children, my grandchildren, and my grandchild on the way. However, the thing that I am most thankful for is my husband. He served in the military for a number of years, now he is out and is working as a civilian contractor in Afghanistan. He had never been deployed as a soldier but still wanted to serve over-seas, as a civilian contractor he can do that. This decision did not come lightly to either of us, but what he is doing allows me to watch my grandchildren while my daughter goes to college and lets me do what I love, teach people how to make cards and scrapbook. Since I can now stay at home, I have been able to do much more! I miss my husband more and more everyday, but he is doing what he feels called to do and in doing so, I am able to do the same!

    Thank you for the opportunity to express my thankfulness here.

  • Debbie Kelly

    I am thankful that both my adult sons are healthy and have jobs. I have really enjoyed reading the other comments. God bless all of you.

  • Sandy Handrich

    I am most thankful for the free gift of salvation and a loving God who would sacrifice His only son to pay for our sins. I’m thankful for the miraculous changes that accepting that gift has brought into my life and the life of my husband and daughters….we are truly blessed.

  • Michelle Halcomb

    Megan, I am speechlessly grateful for all my children. I am particularly grateful that my 4 year old special needs daughter is still in this life with us. Her life is nothing short of a miracle. Thank God. I’m thankful there is a God in heaven who loved me enough to send His Son to die for me, and that He has chosen me to be her Earthly keeper. SO SO thankful!

  • Janet Sisk

    I am SO thankful first of all to Christ for His salvation. Then I am thankful for being raised in a Christian home and also for being married to an amazing man who also loves God. My daughters are amazing and I could go on and on listing all the blessings that I am thankful for. Thank you, Megan, for a chance to win a great prize.

  • Helen

    I am most thankful for my family. As we get older, some families grow and some…… get smaller. Seems that has been more the norm for me over the past 5 yrs or so. I am so very lucky to still have both my parents and the best sis anyone could ask for. But this year, we were blessed to welcome into our family the most beautiful little baby girl. Just over a month ago, my nephew and his wife brought sweet Addison into this world. And it is this precious gift I am so very, very thankful for.

  • Sue

    What am I most thankful for? Remembering a time in my life, 18 years ago, when I was diagnosed with acute Leukemia (AML) and the chances of survival were for me was ‘nil’. But when others were asking ‘why her’, I asked God ‘Why Me’ ~ but in a totally different manner. I knew that God always has a bigger plan so I also knew that He would use this for His glory & I stood on that promise. My sister, who did not know Christ in a personal way, stayed with me in the hospital (in a different state) a week at a time when my husband had to be home with the children & work. I was weak but remembering that He is strong, kept a Bible verse on the hospital ‘update board’ in my room. Now, 18 years later, I am thankful that in His ‘bigger plan’ that my sister accepted Christ about 12 years ago as her Lord and Savior. She passed away just 3 weeks ago at the young age of 58. But, we shall meet again… and I am thankful. And as you can see, I am still here ~ ‘Why Me’? ….. and I am thankful.

  • Glenda

    I’m most thankful that my hubby has a job right now. We struggle like everyone else, but still keeping our heads above water, at least so far, and for that I am extremely grateful!!! Hope all is going well for you now, and keep up the good work!

  • Joan Barch

    I am thankful to be able to babysit my grandson everyday to allow my daughter and son in law to work at businesses on the island. I accept no pay, I am just thankful that they will let me do it. I LOVE IT!

  • Ginnye

    I am thankful for my family- especially my husband who experienced sudden cardiac arrest last year. He is alive and doing well after having a defibrillator implanted. My family is my world and he is the center of our universe. I thank God every day for our life and health.

  • Deanna A.

    I am most thankful for my husband, our two sons and their wives and our three awesome grandsons!! Also for a roof over my head, food to eat and pretty good health.

  • arneta

    I have so many things to be thankful for that it is hard for me to just choose one thing… but tonight as I sit here….having just watched “The Christmas Shoes” I will say the woven fabric of my family…woven by hurt and hope…and God’s faithfulness to weave the hurt into hope.
    May your Thanksgiving be full of blessings Megan 🙂

    Tho we don’t celebrate thanksgiving in the uk, I’m very thankful I’m alive!
    It might sound corny but after having a bad chest infection for a number of weeks, it got worse and I literally collapsed through the doors of my Dr surgery last week with an asthma attack- I thought I was gone, they worked with me and I was taken to hosp in an ambulance for treatment.
    I’m thankful for my family, there for me no matter what, helping me every way they can.
    Life is precious

  • Kathy

    This year was a blessing in disquise. I went to North Carolina to celebrate my father’s 87th birthday which was unfortunately his last. He was hospitalized on his birthday and never came home again. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to tell him how much I loved him and thank him for all he did for me. I will never take for granted the words “I love you” again

    A couple weeks ago my husband went to the hospital with chest pains. He had a stent put in and is doing fine now. He’s the most important man in my life and I’m thankful that he’ll be with me to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and 36 years of marriage.

    Thank the Lord for every day you have left on earth because you never know when he’ll call you home.


    This Thanksgiving I am thankful that both my husband and sister have been declared cancer free. My sister had lung cancer and my husband had a type of cancer called sarcoma. It will truly be a blessed day.

  • Hertha S.

    I almost forgot–also, I want to wish Benson a “Happy Birthday.” As he celebrates his birthday on Nov.22, my husband and I will celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. I am so very thankful for him and his love and support for all these years.

  • Kathie

    There is so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving,I am grateful for my family, tho spread across the USA they will be in my heart this holiday season, I am grateful for my health and the mere fact that I have affordable healthcare available to me.I am grateful for my job. Can’t say I am crazy about it but it is a job,it gives me a paycheck at the end of the week-something we can no longer take for granted in these turbulent times.I am thankful for my husband of two years, who loves me no matter what! He even puts up with the mounds of paper scraps I accumulate on a regular basis. I am grateful for friends that will stick with me through thick and thin.Last but not least I am thankful for the countless servicemen who put their lives in danger to keep my country free-that allows me to worship my God the way I see fit, that allows me the freedom of speech and that allows me to wake up in the morning to a relatively peaceful land free of rioting and gunfire. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday,

    I’m most thankful that I have my family close, healthy grandchildren and the love of my life to share it with. We have been blessed, even though we lost a son to cancer, to have 5 wonderful grandchildren. We had them all around the table yesterday to celebrate our Thanksgiving. It’s fun to watch them grow, teach them a few tricks about life, and just enjoy the days we have with them.

  • Judi F.

    I am most thankful for life. This will be my 5th Thanksgiving to share with my family since my diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer. I am unendingly thankful that my Lord and Savior helped me through my battle and allowed me to celebrate my two daughters graduation from high school–and one from college—and one’s recent marriage, as well as be around to watch my son grow up into an incredible young man. Never bitter over the cancer, only grateful for the lessons it has taught me. My God deserves ALL the praise!!!!

  • Dawn Marchant

    I’m most thankful for my entire family. They are always there whenever anyone needs them whether it’s family or not. I have to say though I am most thankful this year for being able to be a part of my 2nd grandson’s life again. Life is precious – treasure it!!!

    I’m thankful for my family and the paths I’ve chosen to follow in my life, and the lessons I’ve learned along the way. Happy Birthday Bensen!

  • Sandra Christman

    Thanksgiving week, a week I have my grandchildren with my husband and I. They will get to see my mom again as she lays in bed fighting for her life. Time to make a Christmas card for each member of our congregation. Thankful to Megan and her team for all they do.

  • KathyJo Ritchie

    My first thought was to put my family or my salvation, but as I thought about it more I would say my ability to be thankful. That I have been given a spirit that feels gratitude. As a teacher we see all kinds and there are people in this world that can not find the gratitude in them and thus miss out on a great deal of joy.

  • Teresa Ashby

    I am most thankful for the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. I am thankful that He is faithful, even when I am not. His love is unconditional and His Word says He will never leave me or forsake me. He has blessed me with an awesome, godly husband and 4 precious children. And….I am thankful for this new hobby of scrapbooking and am excited about creating a scrapbook room so my daughter and I can begin making new memories together. Thank you, Megan, for making available to us your expertise and creativity. It has truly been inspirational–and I know by reading your bio that this has come about for you as a result of seeking the Lord’s direction and confirmation! I pray many blessings on you and your sweet family. Enjoy every phase with your children. They grow sooo fast!

  • Betty Welton

    I am most thankful for God, he has always been there for me. For the death of my only son at the age of 48, my parents. God has always been there to see me through and he continues to bless me. I am also greatfull
    for my brother and his family. Nothing like family on a holiday. Have a happy Thanksgiving. Betty

  • Patti Klein

    I am most thankful for my family. Two years ago I almost lost 4 of my 5 children in a horrific car accident. They were 20, 15, 11 and 9. Two sustained injuries that they will carry with them the rest of their life and will always be in pain. Yet they are here with me and living fullfilling meaningful lives.

  • Karen

    There isn’t enough space for me to list all the blessings I am thankful for this year. Although my wonderful parents are no longer on the Earth to share the holidays, I am forever grateful for the love the gave me and the traditions they passed down to me so I can pass them down to my son. I’m grateful for my loving and supportive husband, my son who brings me joy every second of the day. My brother Jim is the best brother a sister could have. As for the in-law department, I hit the lottery, all of my extended family is simply awesome. I have 4 incredible nieces and and nephews, who I love dearly. Ever since I was in 2nd grade, I wanted to teach and now in my 23 year of it, I’m living my dream. Yes, there are negatives in my life, but my family, faith, and friends help me to get through it all. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

  • Leslie

    I am most thankful for my family and friends. We are especially blessed this year because my sister-in-law who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier in the year is doing great after her treatments. It looks like she is cancer free now and we are so grateful for that! Keep up the good work on your new products. Happy Thanksgiving.


  • Rexann

    I am most thankful to still have my mother with me and all the love that the family is giving her even though she is not able to speak or communicate to much! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  • Cydney Fowler

    I have so much to be thankful for: a wonderful husband and family, a good job in an uncertain economy, good friends, but I am most thankful for my faith. My 58 year old brother died recently and without the comfort of my faith and beliefs about death and dying, I would not have gotten through it as I did. I was the family member who could stay strong and be with him to the end. Enjoy your family this holiday season – you really never know how long you will have them. Forgive them anything and just be together. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, especially Megan and her family. Thanks for all you do for us in the crafting world.

  • Laura K

    I am most thankful for my family. My girls are great and my husband is the best man in the world. We have been through a lot the last few years but our love and strength has only grown stronger. Thank you so much for the great giveaway!

  • Colleen

    I am thankful for my family, but my especially wonderful husband, he makes me laugh everyday, even when I am not in a good mood, he can make me laugh and it never fails to make a not so good day into a great day.

  • Dorothy B.

    What I am most thankful for is my salvation in Christ. Without Him I wouldn’t be the wife and mother my family needs. My relationship with Him makes every other relationship so much stronger and so much sweeter. He has blessed me with a beautiful family and church family. I have had the pleasure of teaching my children about Him and now my grandchildren. Yes, we are truly blessed.

  • Tracy

    I am most thankful to the Lord, who has sent me my best friend who is a wonderful, loving and gentle husband, and my two loving and caring children. A Daughter that is my friend and is always there for me as I am for her 24/7, plus my son-in-law and the most loving 3 grandsons. Thankful for my son who is just like his father in is so many ways, who has given me a loving daughter-in-law and the most beautiful granddaughter. I am so greatful for my life and being able to share things with my family and friends.

  • Elaine

    First I am so thankful for God’s plan of salvation and His presence with me every day. Then I am thankful for my family: a wonderful husband who treats me like a queen, godly parents who have provided (and are still providing at 84 at 90) a life given to God, children, siblings, and in-laws. Though times haven’t always been easy, I know God is in control. Happy Thanksgiving.

  • Lorraine

    I am thankful for 2 eyes that can appreciate the beauty of everyday, 2 ears that can hear children’s laughter, hands that allow me to create beautiful things and a heart that allows me to comfort my patients with AIDS. I am most grateful for a loving husband who has supported every decision I make be it good or bad.


  • Cheryll Griffith

    I am most thankful for my family and my crazy best friend who introduced me to a Cricut . I am thankful for beautiful children that make this grouchy 1 st grade teacher laugh every day! I am thankful for the warm kitty who snuggled on me and night and the freedoms afforded by us in this wonderful country.

  • Penny J

    I am most thankful for my wonderful husband of 37 years and my children. AND that they give me the “free-play” time to craft craft craft!!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Joan Peters

    I am most thankful for God sending His Son, Jesus to be my Saviour. Without Jesus, nothing else would be as wonderful as it is now. He gave me a wonderful husband, and two beautiful Christian daughters. What more do I need.

  • Victoria Ciolek

    The Lord is good, I have so many! My dau and son-n-law moved back home after 10yrs of being gone. My son and his family moved back last yr and we’ll all be together for the 1st time (since they were little) and we’re all happy and healthy. What I am most thank-ful for is that I just finished my training to be certified in working with Hospice patients. I am disabled myself and God has given me such better health that I will be able to sit with and hopefully give comfort to those patients that are journeying into their forever life. God is GOOD and I am so wonderfully blessed and Thankful not just on Thanksgiving but always even in these difficult times

  • Amy

    I’m thankful that there are so many people who have so many things to feel thankful! It’s great to read all positive comments from others! 🙂

  • KitnM

    I am also most thankful for my family. I enjoy each person. One thing I am most thankful for is how each one gives a different reflection of Him and utilizes their gifts to benefit others. I was blessed today when I went to speak at a church and ran into a client I worked with years ago. It was a blessing to hear how He is working in her life. I would never have been blessed by her if I hadn’t let Him guide me. I am thankful for Him and how He is in control so that we can concentrate on those He brings into our lives!

  • Pat Burson

    I am thankful for being born this time and in this place. I am grateful for all the sacrifices that were made by the people of the past to pave the way for us to enjoy the life we have. I spent 5 months living on an island in the Pacific that is 15 miles long and 5 miles wide this past summer and it really opened my eyes how we live with so much excess in this country. I was blown away by how happy the people living on this tiny island were with what little they had I have since started to scale down on what I have and am trying to live a simpler life. I am so thankful I got to experience “island life” and for all the nice people I met during my stay! It was a much needed “wake-up” call! Happy Thanksgiving everyone:)

  • kidssmb

    Your Stick Itz look like fun! I am so thankfully blessed with a wonderful, healthy family and the ability to have time to spend making a lifetime a great memories and traditions!

  • Marilyn Coleman

    I am so thankful to GOD for everything he has given me!, but I am so thankful to him to give me enough talent to use the CRICUT and have the most enjoyment one could have that lives alone. I use this machine so much I have to keep buying new ones. It has been a life saver for me and so much company when I get home from work, I go straight to my craft room after the evening meal and have to make myself leave it to go to bed. I am so thankful that more talented people as yourself M.E. that you want to share your talent with us–you are such an inspiration and GOD sent you to me cause I sure needed that inspiration and it keeps me going…and looking forward to anoter wonderful craft day!!! HAPPY T-DAY MEGHAN

  • Michelle K

    I am most thankful for my family. As a close friend told me the other day…”When you get older you realize how important your family really is. Your friends will come and go, but your family is there for you forever.” My goal is to keep this in mind through the busy times of the holidays, and to spend time each day letting my family know how much I cherish each one of them. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Tonia H.

    I am so thankful that my oldest son returned home from Iraq this fall and will be able to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with us this year. I have way too many blessing to list them all here and you asked for the most thankful thing in our life right now, so that would have to be it for the “right now” moment! Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into Above Rubies and for all the so wonderful ideas, videos and giveaways. May God richly bless you and your family this Thanksgiving!

  • Sheila

    I am most thankful for my wonderful family – not only my husband, but my children, grandchildren and my mom and siblings and all my nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews, and can’t wait til Thursday when all 38 of us get together!

  • vivian kaufman

    I am thankful that I have Jesus in my life. I am also thankful for my family, friends, job and the many blessings I have in my life.

  • Doris doze

    I am so thankful that my mother is still alive and that I can visit her for Thanksgiving. She turned 90 last May. She is in a nursing home in Baton Rouge. She has dementia but still remembers me when I visit.
    Thank you Megan for this web site. I’ve learned so much from you!

  • Karla

    Right at the moment I am super thankful for my Dad. My mother has had cancer in the past and recently has been put on different meds for this, that, and the other thing —- and some of them had some bad effects on her. We thought for a bit she had Alzheimer disease. But my Dad thought it had something to do with one (or more than one of the meds). He kept going to the docs (the PCP, the neurologist, and the cardiologist) discussing her problems and her meds. They now have her off almost all meds (only on a few now), and she is back to her ol’ self. However, I think a small “side effect” of all this is that she may have had a mini stroke. My Dad is now getting her to the doc(s) to check on this. He has been super, super diligent about watching her and her reactions/actions to all these meds. My parents live in Florida, and I live in Virginia, so I’m not able to be there on a day-to-day basis. To top things off, my Dad is deaf, and him and I communicate on AIM. As for him and the docs ….. the docs get impromptu visits from my Dad!! *hee, hee* Thank goodness for the technilogical age! *smile*

    Happy Birthday to Benson tomorrow, and a HUGE thank you, Megan, for all you do for us! Hugs!!!

  • ShariKay Brantley

    I am thankful for my Mom (who is 98 and I can’t keep up with her). Without her love, guidance and prayers, I would not be the woman I am today. Along with that goes my thankfulness for my children and grandchildren who also receive the same love, guidance and prayers that my Mom taught to me. When you have those three assets working for you, you can’t help but become a caring and kind person. I am thankful for the country we live in and the many men and women that protect us day and night. With all that going on in my world, it can’t get any better.

    Thanks to you, Megan, for all you do for us and the inspiration you shower on us! You will have many stars in your crown.

  • Renee Roberts

    I am most thankful for my wonderful husband and the 2 beautiful boys he gave me, who have now grown to such wonderful young men. They all make my heart sing when i can have them all together… Have a Happy holidays everyone…

  • Tami McDaniel

    I am most thankful for my husband. I just had surgery one week ago (#7 back surgery) and he is just so special. He takes such good care of me and dotes on me. He wants to make sure that I heal up. I had one of my surgeries right before Thanksgiving and he cooked the whole meal, even baked pies. He intends to do it again this year. He has expanded his cooking skills since I hurt my back and we no longer just eat hotdogs. Thank goodness. LOL Hi vow of “in sickness an din health” he has taken very seriously. I am so thankful that he loves me so much and didn’t run away after the 2nd surgery. Thanks for the chance to win. I always love finding and trying out new products. Tami

  • Melissa Brown

    This year I am most thankful for family! After a recent bad car accident and a job loss in our family I am thankful to hold on to the two things that haven’t changed! God never gives us more than we can handle, but the last 2 months have been a lot to handle that it tends to overshadow the really important things to be thankful for.

  • Tammy Brownlee

    I am most thankful for my family. I really wish we could get together more often than just the holidays. I will have to work on that, before it’s too late. As we get older, you start to think of that a little more often & realize the difference a day could make. Spend the time & make the effort to visit as often as possible, because you never know when your time, or theirs is up on this earth. I wish all a very Happy Holiday Season! Enjoy the moments!

  • Mommyme

    Happy birthday Bensen! My grandmother, (who is 84), just had her third major stroke a couple of days ago. I am most thankful that she survived this stroke…It is a true blessing. Secondly, my husband and I relocated our family in September to a new state. Our youngest has been quite ill since Thursday. Thankfully, she has broken her 104+ fever, so it looks as though we’ll be able to visit our family back home, after all! The time with them will be so much sweeter this year. (My “little” brother, 34, was married in late October. Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the ceremony. We’ll also be spending Thanksgiving with a new sister!)

  • Jenscrapstoo

    My Beautiful daughter is what I am MOST thankful for.. after a long process to have a baby, my first baby girl died in childbirth (she is now my beautiful angel) ….I was then blessed with my daughter who is now 5 yrs old and just a delight!! I am VERY thankful that I have her!! THANK YOU for all you do for us in giving us inspiration in the crafting world!! Blessings

  • Jeannie

    Most Thankful? That’s a tough one… My brother committed suicide last year and it was a big shock to everyone who knew him. 2 days before he took his life, he texted me- I really didn’t have the time to sit and text back and forth but I am thankful I did! I will always treasure those last conversations and it really makes me now take the time to stop, slow down, and give some time to those you hold dear in your lives. You never know when a tragedy can take them from this earth.

  • Connie P

    I have so much to be grateful for this year. My family is number one. Our first grandchild was born healthy despite ultra sounds telling us otherwise. My youngest daughter survived a serious car accident and improves daily. My youngest son is alive and doing well after having severe allergic reactions to medications and needing to be resuscitated 8 times and I had my first normal mammogram in 15 years. We have good jobs, good friends and a loving Father in Heaven who watches over us and blesses us daily.

  • eileen

    Would LOVE the chance to win… don’t know if I’m too late. I am most Thankful for… my husband. He is amazing; always loving and supporting me.

  • Julia Becker

    I am thankful for my son & grand-daughters(4). Cherish your children I lost my oldest son when he was 24 yrs. old & miss him. I am thankful for my wonderful hubby, & all 5 of my cats who keep me company all day.
    I am also thankful for all the friends & people I have met on here. I may not talk on here a lot, but stay up to date with everyone. I had a back surgery went wrong 5 yrs. ago, now home-bound 24/7, so paper-crafting has become my refuse. I miss working, but instead have become blessed in meeting & having so many wonderful people. Thank you all.
    Looks like another wonderful product, can’t wait to try it. Good-luck!!

  • Rose Koslofsky

    it always amazes me of all the new things to create with paper products, I am thankful that we have this website to keep as a companion when life gets so busy,

  • Sylvie

    I guess my “thanks” have to be a bit different since I lost my dad last Sunday and I miss him so much. I was really close to him and not having me near me will be very difficult. But I am grateful for all the years I have spent time skiing with him on the slopes in Canada and for all the great memories he has giving me and my family. He was a great great man.

  • Mary Cantlebarry

    I’m Thankful for God and my family and health. I have a wonderful husband, 2 amazoning sons and a awesome daughter in law and a adorable grandson that is so a treasure to us, and a grandbady on the way.

  • Linda Holman

    I am thankful that my Mom is no longer in pain, and has been reunited with my Dad in Heaven. They were married for 65 years. Dad died two years ago and Mom just died this past Saturday. She has stomach cancer and was in a lot of pain. I am an only child and grateful she was at my house when she died and for the past few days of her life I was able to offer her some comfort by being her “mama”. I also listened to go many conversations during those days between her and my Dad. I’m so thankful they are having a wonderful reunion this Thanksgiving and I’m thankful that God blessed me with two wonderful children that have been here this week and will be here with me for the holiday. I miss my Mom so much, but know she will have a blessed Turkey Day with Dad…

  • Merce

    I have read the replies that have been posted. After reading them I am truly thankful for everything. I have had my ups and downs these last 4 years battling breast cancer but nothing like some of the replies posted. I wish everyone the best and continue to be thankful. There is always some that is having a bigger struggle .

  • Pamela Keeler

    I am most thankful to the donor of my husband’s new lung. He received a beautiful new lung on Sept. 19th, 2011 which is now his 2nd birthday!!! He has had a few hiccups since, but we are looking to share many more years together. I also want to encourage those who haven’t made the decision to become a donor to do so, if you can. Until you are on a transplant list and receive that call for a new organ, do you realize that you are about to receive one of the greatest gifts of all. For those of you who are donors, thank you, thank you, thank you!


    I am a lucky lady I have a wonderful husband and two wonderful boys we enjoy as much of life as we can . I am always trying to learn something new As I create I find that their are so many creative woman out there I love to see the work of others
    Thank you Laurie
