Thanksgiving 2011






Hey everybody!!
I hope you all had a fabulous Turkey day!

It was hectic at my house as I am the one who hosted it this year for my family. This is how the main table looked. All of my china was given as gifts over the years from my MIL. I just picked up the water goblets from an estate sale last month!


 


Ta Da! Here is my 24lb turkey!!
Yikes I was up at the crack of dawn making the stuffing to put in this bird. But all turned out delish! We had turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and rolls. Plus pumpkin pie of course!

After this I went black Friday shopping. It was a blast and I picked up some great deals.
I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend.

Reindeer Food


Hey gang,
I have a super fun project to share with you all. These chunky tubes from A Cherry On Top are filled with reindeer food. The idea is to sprinkle the food on your lawn Christmas Eve and it will sparkle and let the reindeer easily find your house. It's a darling tradition to start with the little ones and maybe not so little ones.

Here is a video to show you the how to's.
Enjoy!

JustWordz ~ DT project #2



Hi everyone!
How's your day going? Things are good here. I am hosting the big Turkey day this year. I have a 24lb turkey on order. Yikes I'm going to have to get up at 6:00 am to begin cooking. But I love providing such a delicious meal for my family. We always have the traditional fare of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry, rolls, and pumpkin pie! How about you? Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions?

My son is invited to a super cool birthday party this weekend. It's at an indoor BMX racing facility. So I knew I wanted to make a more grown up card. No balloons, bears, or cute stuff for this one. I think it turned out great! Especially due to the JustWordz stamp set called party time! This stamp set is so fun to use. There are words for just about anything dealing with a party.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today!
I hope you have a wonderful day.

It's great to have you here. If you are one of my faithful followers and have never heard of JustWordz Stamps let me start by saying they are fabulous clear stamps that are words only. So you can mix and match for any combination your lil heart desires.

I chose to use the new stamp collection called Christmas Season. It's chalked full of the cutest words. Anything and everything to do with Christmas and a must have if you ask me.


I wanted to share something fun and different today. These little tins are the size of an Altoid Tin. You can get them online at any container store. And boy are they so fun to decorate! JustWordz stamps take front and center stage here. It was so fun making my own sentiments. Because let's face there isn't a whole lotta room on the front of these tins. So being able to create my own words was so nice!





There is also another new stamp set called Party Time. It is perfect for birthday cards, celebrations, any get togethers. I will be showcasing those stamps in the next following weeks. But if you would like to see them today just hop along the JustWordz blog hop! You can also purchase both of these stamp sets online at JustWordz.
