Napkin Rings

Saturday, November 26, 2011
We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving with all our children and
grandchildren together this year.

Our family is small so there was only 10 of us, but we love having everyone together.

These are the napkin rings that I made for our Thanksgiving table.


And here is the Chef that made our delicious Thanksgiving Dinner for us...

I Love Thanksgiving because Dale takes charge of the kitchen and I get to sleep in!!
This year we celebrated at the evening meal so Dale got to sleep in today too!

YUMMY!! Homemade Brown and Serve rolls

A Beautiful Bird from the Health Food Store
NINETEEN POUNDS!!!

Heading into the oven - with a Butter Garlic Seasoning

Nearing Completion..


Gracie's Turkey Barretts

And Gracie thought she better check out the Black Friday ads in the newspaper
After all, Christmas IS coming

What a fun day!!

Place Cards

Friday, November 25, 2011
These are the place cards that we had sitting at everyone's place
at our Thanksgiving table yesterday.

We also made this as a project for the Big Shot Class last week.

Pull up on the ribbon and you have a little note
where everyone can write down what they are thankful for.


When I started dating Dale we celebrated EVERY Thanksgiving Day with his family.
It was a wonderful day that we always looked forward to.
Dad Waite would have us go around the table and each one would
tell what we were thankful for. Sometimes it would be sentimental
and maybe a few tears would be shed, and sometimes there would be something
fun or silly. I would say "you never know what the kids would say", but in this
family it was usually "you never know what the adult men would say."
They had, and still have a habit of being fun-natured, and a bit silly at times.

Wonderful memories that we now cling to with both Mom and Dad Waite
celebrating Thanksgiving in Heaven.

Hope you all had a wonderful
Thanksgiving Celebration!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

I trust you are all enjoying a wonderful relaxing day with your family
feasting on the many blessing that you have in your life.

Just wanted to share the card that I made for Tyler and Gracie
for Thanksgiving


You must know by now that I love working with the punches
Thanks to Sharyn Jensen for sharing her tips on the
little punch art Pilgrims.

I thought it looked a bit plain so I added some colorful fall leaves

Much Better!!

Have a Blessed Day!!

Happy Feet

Wednesday, November 23, 2011
Penguins are all the rage right now with the new HAPPY FEET TWO movie coming out on Thanksgiving Day so with that in mind we offered several penguin themed items at our craft sale last Saturday (which by the way was a HUGE success!!)


Inside this little tin was a package of M&M's
Of course whoever bought them could change them out for whatever
they chose when they gave it away if they wanted.

Thanks to all who stopped in to see us at the craft sale!
It was wonderful to hear your kind comments

Warmest Of Wishes

Friday, November 18, 2011
Tomorrow is our last scheduled Craft Sale of the season.
Sue and I have both been working hard at getting things ready for the big day.
We LOVE this one because it is held in our local high school,
and it is combined with the community Santa Claus Parade
so we get to see many people we know who will stop in after the parade.
If you are able to come check us out we are at ...

HUDSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL - 32nd Street
9 AM to 3 PM - you will find our booth in the cafeteria

This is one of the more recent projects I made to sell at the craft sale.
I thought it turned out so cute.


Thanks to Lynn Pratt for the mitten shaped pattern on her blog
A yummy treat is inside and perfect for a small treat for a friend, neighbor,
teacher, mail carrier - oh the options are endless!!

Stampin' Queen Sketch Challenge #13

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Time for another Stamping Queen Sketch Challenge

Here is the sketch we had to work with...


and this is my take on it...


Silly me, I actually used the colors on the sketch challenge too.
I used three different Embossing Folders to give the card added texture
and I used the water coloring tips from our down line meeting
to color in the giraffe from the stamp set ZOO REVIEW.
Stamped the giraffe on the water color paper that also gives a texture.

This time my grand daughter, Gracie, helped me choose the stamp set
she wanted me to use on the card.

Thanks for stopping in!

Have a Blessed Day!!
