Happy Thanksgiving!


I have so many things for which to be thankful. My wonderful family, being able to provide for them, and my good health, are just a few of my blessings. I am especially grateful that our son Scott will be coming from Pittsburgh. All of my boys will be home.

I will be working on Thanksgiving, so my sister will be hosting this year. I am making cranberry-applesauce, sweet potato rolls, and four pumpkin pies. These are all things that are easily made ahead and will be brought by my family. I will meet them there after work.

I decided to make these cute little favors for my sister's table. They are super easy and quick to make. You could easily make these, or have your children make these if they need a little project tomorrow. ;)

I used tea lights by Mainstays from Walmart. They come 30 to a box and are available in many different colors and scents. Mine are Mulled Cider. I cut Haiku DSP from SU! into 1/2 " by 5" strips, and adhered these around tea lights. Then I took a cordinating card stock color and punched a scallop to form the base. Very simple, and I think they will look nice at each place setting. Then the guests can take them home as a little reminder of our meal and good times shared together.

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and may we all be truly grateful for our many blessings!

Stamps: None
Ink: None
Paper: Haiku DSP, Old Olive, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, all by SU!
