happy thanksgiving.

November 28, 2013

I spent all of last week crafting for Thanksgiving. I wanted to make sure these handmade goodies were done as soon as possible, so I can mail them out at the beginning of the week. It was somewhat difficult for me to craft for Thanksgiving, as I was always gravitating towards Holiday crafting. Without using any Christmas card stock I managed to get these goodies done and sent out!

I was heavily encouraged by patterns this time around. I seriously had to sit there for a second and pull some patterns out since it was beginning to clash. I stuck with deep fall colors, many different shades of oranges and reds. Of course, I've had everything on hand. Believe it or not, the little pattern card stock with the floral is actually business cards, the ribbon i've purchased two years ago at Target during their after Christmas sale, the wrapping paper I used as the background is from Paper Source I purchased 3 years ago. As you can tell, I love to re-use and make use out of all the materials I have.

I've made it my signature to use the "I'm thankful for.." cards every year. This is my fifth year using them. I'm thinking for next year I should make some myself. I favor making thanksgiving cards, as it really expresses how thankful I am for the people in my life. Although, i'm thankful daily, this Holiday is just an extra step to show my gratitude and appreciation. xo
