Happy Monday everyone!
I don't know about you, but November has left me wondering...is it ever going to get cold??
For whatever reason, it seems like this November has really been warm. Not that I'm complaining or anything. I (Heather) will continue to love the warmer fall air! I just remember it being a whole lot colder in the years previous by this time. Just me? Let me know if you think I'm crazy or if you've noticed this. Also, if you like warmer or colder weather!
We're just happy that we're continuing in Phase 3 for awhile! Would you be interested in us writing up what the different Phases would mean for the store? Just a thought I had. So let me know if you'd like to know more in depth what the Phases mean and how that effects your shopping experience!
Anyway, enough rambling, on to what's going on this week!

Artist of the Month
We released November's Artist of the Month last week!
We welcome Ginger Stuart to this month's Artist of the Month! She is an artist of many talents, including: stained glass, fiber arts, and other 3D works. This special lady is going through a hard time right now. She gave us permission to share with all of you what is going on right now.
Make sure to click here to read more about her and her story.
You'll also be able to read about what Impulsive Creativity is doing to help her and her family out during this month, how you can help, and how to get updates on her condition.
P.S. If you buy anything from the artist Chris Hamblen, he says that he wants to help Ginger as much as possible as well. So all orders from this artist will go to help with Ginger's hospital bills as well! We have such an amazing community! A special Thank You to Chris!
P.S.S. We will be having an event coming up soon to help give back to Ginger as well! Be looking out for that soon!

What are you thankful for this year?
We know that this year has been rough. It's been rough for everyone on this planet. But, let's take a minute to be thankful for something. Just one thing, big or small, that was positive about this year. Let's come together as a community to be thankful for just one thing today. Bright side, if you go ahead and answer now, you can totally reuse the answer when you're asked on Thursday! 😂
Just to be fair, here are our answers to this week's question!
Kat said that she was just so thankful that Impulsive Creativity was strong enough to make it through COVID and all the amazing people that have helped us get through!
Heather said that she is thankful that no one that she cares about has gotten sick from COVID. While her family and friends have had scares, no one has tested positive for the virus.
