Ok, confession time: I’ve been a bad linky party host. I’m sorry. Life gets crazy sometimes and I can’t do everything I want to do. Please forgive me…
First of all, thank you so much to all of you who linked up. I realize I haven’t visited your links, and again, I’m sorry. I will, I promise. Just bear with me. I wasn’t even able to invite new people to our little weekly shin-dig like I normally do…
Anyway, I just want to keep you posted on what’s going on around here, cuz it’s a lot 🙂
The hubs and I partied this past weekend for his 20 year high school reunion:
I got my hair “did”:
I launched one of my Thanksgiving projects (check it out here):
And…I took the first steps to starting a new business – SUPER excited about that but can’t go into detail yet. 🙂 Sorry for the tease! I’ll share more when I can!
The new biz is eating up a lot of my time right now – business license, insurance, marketing plans, pricing plans, etc. But, it’s a good thing…a very good thing. I promise I’ll share when I’m able.
In the mean time, I want to share my second Thanksgiving project with you. I hope you like it – our family will be starting this little project next Tuesday, November 1st.
So, here’s how to make your own Thankful Tree.
First, gather your paint supplies and canvas:
I mixed my colors and made this lovely orange for my background:
Paint the background of your canvas any color you like:
Paint a tree 🙂 I sprinkled some glitter on it, too.
I found these cute little leaves and edited them in Picnik, adding text that says “I’m Thankful For _____”
Now all you have to do is cut them out, write your little blessings on them, and use glue dots or double-sided tape to stick them to your tree!
Oh, if you want to use the leaves I made, go here to download it.
