When Thanksgiving comes around, I try to think of ways to make my dining room table look special for our family meal.  I decided to make some place cards, and this is what I came up with…

This project is being featured on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog this week, so to see the complete photo step-by-step tutorial and supply list, please click HERE.

Thanksgiving is also a time for me to think about what I am grateful for in my life. 

 I’d have to say my family is definitely number one, and I’m especially enjoying the changing relationships among my children.  Meaning….there is less squabbling! Ha!

I’m also thankful for the teaching opportunities I’ve had lately.  Canadian Scrapbooker magazine has opened up some new possibilities for me, and I love teaching at events as part of their DT.  Designing and writing for the magazine is the best thing that has happened to me in the past few years.

Teaching classes is a joy, and I’m grateful to be able to teach classes locally.  In fact, my next class is offered at Treasured Memories on October 29.  Here is a look…

The Kaisercraft photo display frame looks beautiful with the Take Note collection.  There are a few fun techniques thrown in, with some cool copper metallic elements.  Click HERE to register for my class.

The pictures are my kids from last Fall…..and I’m still trying to round them up before the leaves blow away for this year’s photo shoot. Ack.  It’s like herding cats!  I might resort to threats soon. 

I wish you and your families a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
