thankful

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  I really try to give thanks every day of the year and find the blessings I receive each day.  But on Thanksgiving day, everybody is on the same page. 

I have so much to be thankful for. 

I'm thankful for my family.  Thankful that we are together.  We are in good health and those of us that aren't, well, we're dealing with it through the Lord's good graces.  Thankful for the time we do have together. 

I'm thankful that the Lord provides for me every day.  I try hard not to worry about every little thing.  So hard for me not to. 

I'm thankful for my friends.  Friends that lift me up and understand my whacked out brain.  We can lean on each other when things get rough without criticism. 


And I'm thankful everyday for you, dear reader.  When I happen to check the stats and see that somebody came by to check things out, it makes me feel so good.  When you leave me a comment or send me an email, I can't tell you how awesome it is to feel connected to you.  I've made some friends from this blog.  And I'm thankful for each one of you. 

So now, I thought I'd show you some Thanksgiving things we made a few years ago.


Fall Harvest wheel.  Great little tag for a bottle of sparkling cider for your hostess.



just a closer pic.


Little punch turkey.  Scallop, ovals, circles.  Easy enough for the kids to do.



Another one using the wheel and the Leaves #2 die.  Easy tip for you:  use a very thin layer of the Tombow Multi glue to glue on your DSP before you die cut your leaf.  Way easier!  


This would make a cute little thank you card. 

These could be a crafty activity for the kiddos to do while the grown ups are cooking and chatting. 

I'm also thankful that I'm not cooking tomorrow.  HA!  I'm only supposed to help "serve".  Okay! 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I hope you're spending it with people you love........and that they help clean your kitchen! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Blessings, b.

Love the pumpkins - I think they are watercolored, but I am not sure with what....I'm just getting into watercoloring. We had a great turkey dinner and I didn't have to do any cooking or cleaning up! Mary L
