I gladly took Kim's dare, a craft a week leading up to Christmas. Our 1st assignment was a Thankful Thanksgiving craft.
I was especially thankful that my mom was in town visiting while I created my craft. After all, she (& my grandmother) are the ones who taught me the love of crafting. And she helps me solve all my difficulty crafting problems, mostly because she has more patience and skill than me. :)
I love fall leaves and fall trees. So my Thankful Thanksgiving craft was… a Thankful Tree. Using simple and inexpensive supplies (and not much time), I made a fall tree for my dinning room table. There are fabric leaves (I hot glued wire to their backs, so they could be attached to the tree in realistic directions) and cardstock leaves. On the cardstock leaves we can write things we are thankful for. In theory, the fabric leaves will remain attached and the cardstock leaves will be replaced yearly. While, we aren’t hosting Thanksgiving dinner, it will still be a nice tradition for us to start. And it would be pretty cool to do with a big group gathered around the table for the Big Feast.Thanks for all your help Mom! (She made the card stock leaves, and helped find/arrange the twigs, and tagged along on my shopping trip.) I’m glad you were here to do it with me!
