Holiday Home Tour

We all love a good home tour, don’t we?!  I thought I’d share my home, all decorated for the season.  I love decorating for Christmastime.  I’d love to do more.  But I think that there is a fine line between tasteful and Clark Griswold.  Don’t you agree?

The Thankful Tree

IMG_6413

This is a really fantastic craft to get your whole family into the spirit of Thanksgiving!  It’s easy and teaches children gratitude.  We all have so many things to be thankful for, now we can really display those thoughts in a crafty and fabulously Fall way!

I started by cutting out a leaf from cardboard.  Then I traced it onto some fall foliage colored scrapbook paper.

I cut out all the leaves and punched holes in the bottom where the stem would naturally be.

I let the little ones get to work writing what they are thankful for.  I put string through the punched hole and hung them on some branches I found in the yard.   In the spirit of the season, and this craft, I will tell you all that I am thankful for family, friends, creativity and ALL of our blessings!
