Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, and every day, I am most grateful for my amazing, wonderful, loving family. I completely lucked out in that department. Every single one of them, whether related by birth or by marriage, is a true joy.

thansgiving10favorsThe favor boxes above will be on our family Thanksgiving table tomorrow. Yes, I said tomorrow. Our family has decided that when we can, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas on the “off” days. No matter where we celebrate, there’s a great deal of traveling involved for most people, and celebrating on an alternate day makes that a lot easier. It also lets those with spouses celebrate with both families.

thansgiving10favors-closeup Here’s a close-up of the box. The image is made with the Happy Harvest set by The Petal Press, available exclusively from i {heart} papers. I drew the stem on the pumpkin, since technically I stamped it upside down. It’s colored with Copic markers, and a drop of Glossy Accents is added to each of the acorns. The greeting is from the same set, and it’s embossed with gold EP. I punched the whole thing out with a big oval punch, but you could easily use Nestabilities. I then ran a gold metallic marker around the edge to finish it off. The box itself is made with the Sizzix matchbox die from SU!. I don’t know how I ever lived without it! Most of them are filled with Hershey’s Nuggets (a few, like mine, are filled with Weight Watchers candies).

I sincerely want to thank those of you who actually follow my blog. I know there are a few of you out there, and I do appreciate it. I also know that I’m not as diligent as I’d like to be in posting. I hope you’ll stick with me anyway as I try to get better at that.

And make sure you take some time to check out Kate’s enormous Black Friday Sale at i {heart} papers. From Black Friday through Sunday (midnight EST) use the code black25dt for 25% off any order $25 or more. This is the biggest discount IHP has ever offered so take advantage of it while you can!

Then, in celebration of Cyber Monday, after the 25% off coupon has expired, there will be over 600 items on steep, steep discount - some up to 50% off! So shop early with your 25% off coupon to get what you really NEED to get and then come back on Monday to see all the fantastic savings that are left!

(The nitty gritty details - coupon does not apply to any previous orders or any items that are out of stock. Sale items are first come, first served and no rainchecks apply. And, no credits will be issued if you purchase something with the 25% off coupon and then it goes on sale at a later date. Sorry!)
