Another Giveaway for All

... Okay, one more Autumn post ...
I was working on my Thanksgiving placecards this morning
And thought I'd share my revised "Thankful" tags with you
to download and print. Wish I had thought of this before today
because I'm sure all of you are shopping and baking and cleaning
like I should be doing ... and not online browsing blogs. Right?
Below are 3 tags that you can print out on 4x6 paper,
I used matte photo paper. I left a space to write in your guests
names, or use a computer font as I did. Then just cut each out into
a tag shape and punch a hole. These leaves were picked and dried
a couple of weeks ago. Today I used spray adhesive
and gold and copper glitter sprinkled on, then put the
stem through and taped it on the back.
I had to share these Turkeys we made.
Aren't they the silliest? If you can get your little ones
not to take a bite out of the marshmellow heads...
Be sure to have extra cheerios and candy corn and raisins
to munch on! They didn't like the taste of the
gumdrops so they didn't consume too much sugar!
We made these last year also. I can't remember where
the idea came from.... someones blog probably!
Don't they just make you smile???
Here are the tags. Left click for the largest image,
save to your computer and add some names, and print.
Now I really must get some work done!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Sweet Violet~ I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,
