I have so much to be thankful for....friends, family, faith, and a warm home. I am also thankful for my mom and the festive Thanksgiving Banner she made for me. She also made the cute pumpkins lined along my mantel! A few weeks ago she came to visit us and we celebrated her birthday and Halloween the next day! She has been making creative handmade gifts for years - and I am thankful for all the times she crafted with us - not to mention all the special handmade gifts she has made for us over the years! My children are also thankful for "the craftiest grandma" as they proudly call her. Just having the banner hanging up - has been a great reminder for us to Give Thanks! Often when we all gather around the table for dinner, we ask our kids to tell us three things they are thankful for that day! I hope to pass on the creative, crafting and thankful spirit to each of the three kids!
Here is a link to my mom's blog - where you can find craft tutorials, patterns and inspiration. Check out our three stores for ordering information! Allthingshomey.blogspot
Hopefully you also have a safe and restful holiday season filled with grateful appreciation for the many blessings in your life.
