Thanksgiving this year has taken on a new perspective for me. See, in year's past, I would have been anxious to get right to Christmas. Skip over Thanksgiving. Its just a day of turkey and pie. But this year I'm thankful.
...my family. My husband. My son. My mom and dad. My father-in-law and mother-in-law. We've had our fair share of challenges these last few months and having them all around us is a blessing.
....my company. I love the place where I work. I love the people I get to work with and for. I get to go to work every day doing what I love and use the talents God has given me.
....my faith. I couldn't make it in this life if I didn't have God. These last few months have proved that. His grace and His truths have been the only thing some days I could hold on to.
...my country. America is blessed with freedoms like no other nation. Having been born here, I used to take it for granted but now as I grow older I can see how living here is a priviledge that our service men and women work to maintain each and everyday.
So this year, I'm happy to make a card for Thanksgiving day.
This week, our host is Wendy Jansen. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, make a project that uses the color of Pumpkin Pie or features pumpkins.
I found the little felt leave at Cost Plus World Market. I was really proud of myself to have found something crafty at a non-craft store!
Find your pumpkin pie colored paper and pull out your pumpkin stamps and put together a project that celebrates Thanksgiving (or any other occasion you prefer). To get you inspired, take a look at what the other Our Creative Corner designers have put together along this theme.
I hope you have a great week!
