An abundance of riches. Thank you!

Let's talk turkey . . . I'm sure you've been bombarded with every kind of Thanksgiving message in your inbox this week.  Sales and deals and black somethings all month long. Plus plenty of thank you notes and gratitude platitudes too.

November is a month of sharp contradictions. The overwhelming shopping and marketing bonanza piled all over the actual Thanksgiving holiday like marshmallows on the yam casserole. It's the one day we take a time out to spend with family and share our gratitude for a year of blessings and abundance.

I need to take a moment also, in the spirit of extreme gratitude, to say "thank you" to all of you, my customers, followers and loyal friends.

It's been a really long run here at Soapworks Studio (19 years!) and I couldn't have done it without all your unwavering support and cheerleading from the sidelines.  There have been lots of dips in the road and bleak moments when I thought it was time to pack it in, but then one of you, somewhere, somehow, showed up in the nick of time to bowl me over with the kindest compliments and set me right back on track.

So without getting mushier than a bowl of mashed potatoes, I just want to say thank you to all of you.  Old friends and new ones.  Thank you for sharing your personal lives with me.  Thank you for supporting me year after year, even as trends and tastes change.  I'm so grateful to still be in business after all these years of ups, downs, twists and turns.  You've made it all possible. 

Wishing you a warm, cozy, fuzzy Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
