~Give Thanks~


Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends across the blogosphere. Kristin here, blogging today to wish you all a BEAUTIFUL time, spent with family and friends and yes even to you our non-American friends, you deserve a wonderful day as well :). This year I am thankful for possibly more than any year ever before! It's been a tough go so far that is ending with good health, a steady income, the best family a girl could ask for, awesome friends and the most beautiful bundle of joy this Meme has ever seen.

I'm also thankful for the happiness I find in creating art and crafty things, nothing else relaxes me like loosing myself in a project and seeing the end result. I know you all reading this understand that one :) I thought I would share a few things I created for the first Thanksgiving I'm hosting, wish me luck!

~First up, the beautiful bundle of joy, isn't he adorable~

First visit to Pop pop and Meme's house

Place cards

Centerpiece boxes

I started with bare wood and added some metallic paint in dark espresso, then I added some candles and the misc greenery and nuts. These will be the main focal point on the main table.

Supplies I used


Bookcase decoration


Flowers for arrangements



The main table

Thanks for visiting today,
