I know it's been silent around here lately. It's that time of year when there are a lot of directions to go in. I have been getting crafty, but things I can't share just yet.
For now, here is a little something I did for my son to hand out. It's something you can work on together. He has given these out in the past and they were a hit. I use to have the Blessing Mix Poem typed out so it would fit the shape of a pumpkin, but I lost my file I created when my hard drive crashed, so I just took one from here
easy enough. I just added a pumpkin and leaves from the Cricut Cartridges: A Child's Year and Create A Critter. Easy Peasy!
I added some texture to the pumpkin using the Cuttle Bug Swirls Embossing Folder. A little Baker's Twine and done!
Super Easy and Super Meaningful!
Thanksgiving Blessing Mix Poem
Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation's abundance.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Candy corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
Nuts or seeds: Promise of a a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
Dried fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a Blessed Thanksgiving~
