In Preparation Of Merriment

I want to get a jump start on my Christmas decorating, so I dance up the stairs to my over sized walk in attic.  It is very large.  You would probably be jealous of my attic.

Due to clutter, merriment decor is postponed.
Call in reinforcement: STAL and PBC

Taking a secret photo and snickering at my fat tush is not the help they were employed for.

One of us got a lil bit overzealous last year when all the after Christmas sales hit. She bought enough ornaments to decorate three new houses.  No worries. I'll make it fit, I always do. 

See how easily I can s q e e z e all my new decorations in?

And the finished product.... it's a pink and purple Christmas for the Flibbertigibbet!!!

Thankful Cards

It's the first day of Thanksgiving vacation and your prince and princess are already pulling out the swords and threatening duels!
Try this fun and easy approach making place cards for your Thanksgiving table:

Look for colored pencils, markers, buttons, beads, anything thing that you can stick on your cards.

Next, pull out pieces of your favorite ribbons, bows from Christmas, birthdays etc

           This is card stock I bought from Michael's. You can also find it at Hobby Lobby, Joann's and any craft stores

1. Decide who will be at your dinner table
2. Write down some attributes of each guest and why you are thankful for them. 
3. On the flip side.... use your sciorrors, glue gun, glue stick, glitter, stickers, and all your favorite craft supplies to decorate each persons thankful card.  
4. Don't worry about making mistakes, these cards are straight from the heart

                        You can stick with traditional thanksgiving colors or ....
I tend to throw traditional out into the mote, life's too short!

Encourage your children to not be shy when writing their cards

When sitting around the table, these cards are great conversation starters and also a way to let the people in your life know that you love them and are thankful for them!
                                                                                        PBC made this one for STAL

Sweet and to the point :)

                                                     Many Blessings to you and your family!
