A very BIG THANK YOU to Kylie Bertucci for inviting me to participate in her International Blog Highlight!!

The theme for the International Blog Highlight is Thank You.

I want to tell you that this is a long post with lots of pictures.    If you like this project please visit Kylie’s blog at www.craftykylie.com and vote for me.

There will also be a tutorial available for this gift set.

I want to show you what is inside of the box.

These are homemade cake balls.  My Sister-in-law, Joey bakes for all of my events.  As a Thank You to her, she will be my guest on the Mediterranean Cruise!!

Here are a couple more pictures.

In addition to my wonderful friends and customers that are so loyal to me, I am very fortunate to have some very thoughtful people who give their time to help me in my business.

Stephanie has worked for me every Friday for the past four years.  She is so supportive and does whatever I need to get the job done.  Many times, it would have been very difficult to keep my busy schedule without her.  She has helped me prepare for craft shows as well as worked them.  Stephanie is always there to help me at my Weekend retreats from beginning to end.  She also comes to my rescue when I need extra supplies.

My friend, Lynn and her husband Ron helped me to turn my basement into an AWESOME craft room and class room.  They put in weeks of work from painting to electrical.  We went through about 10 gallons of paint and Ron hung about 20 lights.  Not to mention bolting cabinets to the wall, building furniture and handing punch and ribbon holders.  They are constantly helping with all kinds of odds and ends.    Lynn always helps me prepare for craft shows and Weekend retreats as well.  Lynn is also a member of my team.

Finally, my neighbor and friend, Karen is Fantastic!!  Over the past two weeks we had a good amount of snow.  Karen, her husband and her girls all shoveled my driveway on three occasions!!  They were lifesavers!!!  I have a VERY long driveway and wouldn’t you know, it always snowed on class days.

As you can see, I am very lucky to have wonderful friends.  I feel badly that I cannot mention even more special people in my life.  But, please know that you are all very much appreciated!!
