Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello!!  This is Amy here and today it is Thanksgiving in the USA.  It is my favorite holiday because of all the yummy food and that it also ushers in the Christmas season.  To celebrate, I made a new bookmark that reminds me to give thanks.  Take a look….

I was totally caught off-guard recently as I realized that Thanksgiving is next. week.  I wanted to come up with something cute to decorate with, and I wanted it to be something simple enough to share (and re-create) with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop. Enter the “thankful jar”: No, the idea of a thankful jar isn’t new, but…well…it’s another reason to decorate a mason jar! And I sure love mason jars – don’t you? (By the way, be […]
