Are you a subscriber to Pinterest? If not, let me tell you about it. Pinterest is a free website that is like a virtual bulletin board or virtual bookmark tool. I have hundreds of bookmarks on my computer, which are kind of useless because of the volume. Well, Pinterest let’s you develop categories and you can add a photo that automatically links back to the original site, of items you want to keep handy. You can also search on Pinterest for absolutely anything and “repin” the item to your boards. I know I sound like an advertisement for Pinterest, but I just want to share with you this terrific site.

Which brings me to today’s project. I found this on Pinterest and decided to make a few adjustments and create a little Thankfulness Jar for a my sisters, mom and aunt. Each jar has little slips of paper for each family member to write what you are thankful for each day. Then, on Thanksgiving, empty the jar and share your “thankfulness” with the entire family.
I added Stampin’ Up! Spice Cake Fabric, some tomato twine and cut out some leaves from the Gently Falling stamp set. About 10 minutes each jar and it can be used every year. I just kinda love it!
We are getting ready for Thanksgiving next week and Isabella’s first birthday party. She was here this weekend and is walking everywhere. She looks like a little monster holding her arms straight out for balance. I have a lot to do to get ready for the party and Thanksgiving Dinner for about 35 and I am a little under the weather, so it will be a few days before I can get back to it. In the meantime, I can get a lot done on the computer printing cupcake toppers, banner, treat toppers, etc. Here’s the invite that we sent that was created for us by 3PeasPrints, a terrific shop on Etsy. I really wanted to make it myself on Stampin’ Up!’s My Digital Studio software, but I am just not quite there yet with my expertise. Maybe next year.
We are so thankful for this little miracle baby that it is only fitting that her first birthday theme is one of thanks.
I hope your holiday plans are moving along nicely.
Blessings to you,
