So Much To Be Thankful For

"For each new morning with it's light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends".
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

So many times in the troubles and struggles of life, what one is so truly grateful and thankful for, can get lost. As Thanksgiving approaches, I am more reflective on what I am thankful for most of all. It is not "things" or "stuff" but people. The love of family and friends is irreplaceable.

Embrace and cherish each and every one of those you love as you celebrate Thanksgiving this year.

And through all the thought processes and gratitude, I have managed to do a wee bit of crafting.

Primitive Cone Table Top Trees. These were so much fun to make! I used 12x12 Chipboard as my cone base, covering with  a primitive and coordinating patterned paper, adding twine garland with "grunge"* snowflakes for embellishments. Grunge snowflakes were created using lightweight chipboard flakes, sponging a dab of Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Antique Linen, follow with a pouncing of DecoArt Media Matte Medium, sprinkled with Cinnamon, yes from the pantry :)

I am very pleased with the results.

Hope you enjoy!



 
 
I also made a Vintage/Chic Scissor can.
Just love when the creativity flows!

 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
 
God Bless!
 
Oh, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
