When Do Black Sales Begin at Businesses?

Check this site for some useful info.  And, if you’ve missed all the ads, or get hives from oversized papers like I do, check here for concise lists that don’t make you feel like you’ve just hit visual overload, if that gets to you.  It does me.

Unfortunately, I still don’t know when “Joann’s” craft store opens.  I was considering a personal Cricut they have as a 100 dollar door buster, but I’m beginning to think all the ink’s would drive me batty.   Apparently you have to change them in and out or buy these systems you hook together and piggyback to leave inks in.  Whew.  When my own computer printer can cut, then I might be sold.  I just have too many ink woes as is keeping ink in my printer.

I also thought about a Nestabilities system.  However, I’ve learned I can do what I wanted to do with that, pretty much, with tools I already have.  I’ll get to that later, perhaps.

So, I’m running out of gift ideas…the kids seem to have plenty, and now it’s up to me to call everyone and make plans for them. I don’t know if I’ll join the fam for the 3:30 Wal*Mart run or not at this time.  Right now, my afgan feels really good.

Tomorrow, I’ll join my brothers and their families for our Thanksgiving. Today, we did my husband’s side.  It was a very nice day.

My pet peeve this season is hearing Disney do shows and ads focused on “Give Thanks”.  I may cover this more later as well, it’s worth it’s own thoughts, and I need to get these aunties and uncles called for their “gift ideas” for the kiddos.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
