Thinking of Thanking AND Crafts, Recipes and Cool Stuff

I was thinking today that I have a lot to be thankful for this year. SOOOO SOOOO SOOOOO MUCH!!! I thought that it would be good to list a few of the things that I am MOST thankful.

1- A Loving Heavenly Father

2- A Wonderful Savior

3- The Hubby and the kids

4- My extended family

5- A wonderfully loving church family, especially Momma Hope.

6- The Hubby's new job

7- My new found sewing "skills" (such as they are)

8- My AWESOME readers

9- Packers so I don't have to pack a thing

10- Pain killers because my tooth is acting up again

And since I am thinking of thanking, that leads me to Thanksgiving! Right around the corner!!!! I thought that I would dig through my Pinterest boards and see what wonderful goodies are lurking in there for this special holiday.

Here we go!

Here is a tutorial from Infarrantly Creative for a glitter pumpkin place card holder! TOO CUTE!! You could even make a BIG one for a center piece!

SUPER cute children's craft, Indian corn napkin ring from Preschool Crafts for Kids. I would say that this craft would be great for older kids, too, not just for preschoolers. ;)

From The Cottage Home. I am definitely going to give this one a try!!!
