Thanksgiving Place Settings

My final project for my first day back - not too bad - two pies and 20 place setting cards - a rather productive afternoon!

I made 20 of these simple place setting cards. I actually goofed and they were supposed to be half the size - but when I printed the saying, I didn't adjust it to fit the lower half. Oh well, made them work anyway! A very basic watercolored stamp and a double layered scallop circle complete the look. They read..."Let's get stuffed" and the person's name.

Tomorrow working on simple centerpieces...I hope!

My Thanksgiving Pie Favors

These cute pie favors are what my guest will be getting this Thanksgiving. Each one holds 6 Hershey Kisses or for my niece, Vanilla Teddy Grahams. It takes 10 pieces to make a whole pie. One is pumpkin and one chocolate cream. The favors were made using the Big Bug, Tags Bags Boxes and More and George cartridges. I am very pleased with the final project! Thanks for looking.

After a long absence...

WOW! After taking almost 4 months off from blogging and crafting in general I am back...and boy does it feel good! It was a very busy summer and fall...our first year with bees was a very interesting one...and very rewarding. All said and done, we harvested 132 lbs. of delicious wildflower honey, not to shabby for 1st year beekeepers. Now on to crafting....
