Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re all enjoying a good meal with family and friends. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays—and no, it’s not because of the feast on the table (though it certainly doesn’t hurt). What I enjoy most about the holiday is that it brings family and friends together to share stories and give thanks. I think there’s nothing more special than being with loved ones and pondering all the blessings that we often take for granted.
For me, this Thanksgiving Day is extra special—it marks my one month anniversary as senior editor at Paper Crafts magazine. I can’t believe it’s already been one month. Time really does fly when you’re having fun!
As I reflect about all that I’ve learned the past four weeks, one thing in particular stands out: much like Thanksgiving, what I enjoy most about paper crafting is that it brings people together. Though you can create a card or project on your own, there’s nothing more fun than joining a group of artistic friends to share stories, creativity, and laughter over a “feast” of inspiring paper and product.
And after the goods have been created, the craft continues to bring people together by offering a sweet hello to a distant friend, welcoming a family to the neighborhood, or sending a cheerful birthday greeting. From beginning to end, paper crafting builds friendships and communities.
Since it is Thanksgiving and my one month anniversary at Paper Crafts, I’d like to thank you all for inviting me into the world of paper crafting. In the few weeks that I’ve been here, I’ve been showered with unexpected welcomes and good wishes from many of you. Your kind words and friendships mean a lot to me and the entire Paper Crafts team. Thank you!
