I'm also thankful for my ability to "craft" things (scrapbooks, cards) and for companies, like Meredith, that bless people with contests like this. Not only was I blessed with $500, I also got to pick a charity to get a $500 donation to. Guess which charity I chose? March of Dimes, of course! :)
Here is the "surprise" check that came in the mail today! Woohoo!
