Thinking about Reading! and MojoMonday #270

I've started reading a new series, Maise Dobbs, recommended by my friend Kim. The author is Jaqueline Winspear. I'm currently reading the first book in the series and I'm so hooked! Maisie is a detective in London after the Great War. Her first case is a husband who thinks his wife is being unfaithful. That's all I can share for now, I'll catch you up in a few days, I can't put the book down!

Here's a picture of our wonderful Thanksgiving. There were lots more, but this is a good one.
My oldest son, Chris, was here on leave from the Navy for 10 days so he was able to join us for the holiday (talk about being "thankful").  Miki, a foreign exchange student from Japan, attending University of Oregon, also joined us.  She quickly won us over we fell in love with her and her  excitement for life.  Her willingness to try anything is truly contagious! My youngest son, Nathan, my dear momma, our two nephews, Ashley (Chris's girlfriend) and my husband's sister and her husband joined us also. Combined with wonderful weather, we really enjoyed our time together.
I have been spreading my time among many other interests, but since I am happiest when I'm creating, I thought I'd share a card that I made for the Mojo Monday Challenge #270.  It's been a while since I joined in a challenge because I was working on ornaments for my class.  This was such a fun sketch, I couldn't resist.
And here's the card I made for my friend Peggy's birthday using this sketch and My Minds Eye paper.
 Today I'll be making Christmas cards. I love Christmas and all the creative opportunities!
Have a blessed day,
