Freebie Friday

One of the benefits to being sane (as in, not crazy enough to camp outside of Target in anticipation of Black Friday. . .;) is that you get to be one of the first people to download this week's Freebie Friday. He's a smashing little snowman that you can download for free here. And, he's got six flaky friends that are available for purchase here. :D

Also, today ONLY, for Black Friday, you can win your entire purchase for free!
Details can be found here. 50% off AND a chance to win your entire for free? SWEET!

Note: Bugaboo Stamps makes every attempt to get our digital images uploaded to the store by noon EST for Freebie Friday, but please accept our apologies and check back later in the day if they're not there at that time.

Musings on Gratitude

A little Thanksgiving Acrostic Poem for our Followers:

The Bugaboo family would like to say
Happy Thanksgiving to our friends and followers.
As we approach our one year anniversary,
Nobody can believe how far we've come. We
Know that we could not do it without you and your
Support. We appreciate you and are
Glad to have each and every one of you play along
In our weekly challenges. We love when you
Visit our blogs and leave your sweet comments.
It is our pleasure to visit you and we
Never cease to be amazed at your talent. We are
Grateful to have the best friends and followers in the crafting community!

I just want to wish everyone who is a part of the Bugaboo Family and Friends a Happy Thanksgiving. May your day be filled with lots of love and happiness.

I just wanted to personally wish our followers/friends a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

This year I am so thankful for all of our Bugaboo fans, as without all of you, there wouldn't be Bugaboo! I am also thankful for my fabulous DT, old ones, new ones, and the ones who have been with us since the beginning! You are awesome C:

May your stuffing be tasty. 
May your turkey be plump. 
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump. 
May your yams be delicious, 
and your pies take the prize, 
and may your Thanksgiving dinner 
stay off of your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I would like to thank all My Wonderful Friends here at Bugaboo and all of our fans and followers for making this experience so great! You all have become like family in the past year and I'm especially thankful for that. I hope everyone has a Great Day.
(created the project at the top of this post)

Happy Thanksgiving to all Bugaboo Fans. Thank you for joining us each week with your Bugaboo cards, believe it or not they serve as an inspiration to me too!

"Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting." -Author Unknown
May you, Our Friends and Followers have a very blessed and special Thanksgiving Holiday.

The simpler my words, the more sincere - Thank you.

I am so thankful that I am a part of this Bugaboo group. I love the design team members, the coordinators, and the owner; Ilove the images; and I love our followers! Of all the stamping I have done, these images are BY FAR my favorite! I thank all of you for giving me something that makes my life so so happier and so much fuller. (I'm also thankful that Liz is finally home--at least for a while).

We are so thankful for being able to do what we love to do! In addition to our family and friends we are so lucky we have you, our great followers. You all are the best, we so appreciate your kind words and love that you share with us each day. We are so so very blessed because Jodie is so very talented and trusts us with her creations! This Thanksgiving take time to remember what you have and embrace it and say a prayer of thanks because we are so blessed! 

More Than A Day
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.

We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a tore,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.

So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away.

ABC Monday

As far as Mondays go, this is a pretty good one because it's the gateway to a holiday week here in the US. Thanksgiving Day is this Thursday and most of us will celebrate with lots of family, lots of eating, lots of football, lots of shopping, and hopefully lots of gratitude.

Lori's sweet gift tags are the perfect ABC because they can be used as a personal touch on your gifts, as a handmade gift to someone else, or as the keepsake of a very special Christmas.

Good night, I'm getting all verklempt. . .Talk amongst yourselves. . .;)
