Ta-Daa!!! I actually did it! I made my own Thankful Tree* and I'm just pleased as punch with how it turned out!
I raided my scrap box for paper and ribbons (I never throw any scraps away), and found a branch at Hobby Lobby on sale for $1.99. I love that all of the paper is leftover from last year's fall mini album. Aren't the patterns and colors awesome?
Yesterday we each filled out a few leaves.
My hope is that by Thanksgiving, the backs of all of the leaves will be filled with all the things we are thankful for. I plan on keeping the leaves and then making a blessings book out of them once the holidays are over.
Have a wonderful day!
PS I've got to tell you, in real life I don't think I've ever said, "pleased as punch." : )
