Thankful Thoughts Blog Hop!

  And a good morning to you on this much to be thankful for day!  Fall is such a marvelous time of year! God's great bounty is so very visible -- in the harvest of crops that will sustain us through the coming winter, in the glorious display of leaves and foliage, and in so many other ways! It is little wonder that we find ourselves feeling thankful thoughts at this time of year particularly, though it is good to be thankful at all times :)

Please join us today for a blog hop as the Deedee's Digis design team shares with you some of the ways we express our thankful thoughts through papercrafting. We hope our projects will inspire you to share some thankful thoughts of your own. Here's how the hop works:

For my card to share with you today, I was brought back to all the years of sitting at the table for hours, eating a wonderful home cooked meal and listening to stories from relatives told over and over again each year :)  It's a fond time to remember those moments and keep the traditions going given to us by some of the family that still live on in our hearts and memories.  I am the Thanksgiving host in our family :)   I cook for about 22-25 each year and have always enjoyed having that baton of cooking passed down to me - however!!  Due to the sheer size of the group that shows up, we have had to do the dreaded "Kid's table", lol!  We keep the adults together and let the kids eat in their own area.  After seeing the cover of Scrapbooks, etc with a plethora of Thanksgiving ideas, I thought an adorable crayon holder for the kids would be perfect this year!  Instead of the usual "napkin ring" (which, btw, this could easily double as BOTH!), they'll have a small activity book and Mr. Turkey filled with crayons to keep them busy!  Perfect!  (just like I hope my turkey for all of them is this year, hee hee!)




Now here's what the DT have created today:

  32. What a thoughtful hostess you are, Kelly! I can remember being crammed in at the kids table with my many cousins, and never a crayon in sight! This is so cute the way you've done it up -- both the crayon holder and the card. The kids in your family are sure to appreciate these! Hugs, Deedee
