One thing that doesn't change, however, is one of my favorite reasons for enjoying the fall and that is Thanksgiving. I am a big believer that gratitude is necessary every day of the year, not just on the day we give thanks with family, friends, and of course one very fat turkey. One way to help start this habit is with this great craft I found that has become our forth week of Christmas special. The inspiration came from a post on Sharp Moms if you'd like to see the original. The project was a bit more time consuming than I had originally planned, so the cost to buy this completed is a little more than I like to charge. So, with this week's special, we have come up with a way you can have it even if you don't want to spend the full price. We will be also selling the kit to make the project on your own, OR, if you need to have someone keep you on task, my home will be open three different times for you to Do It Yourself.
Here is our Give Thanks board. It is 18" x 24" and is shown in Espresso paint with Nut Brown vinyl. There are 30 envelopes on the board. There is also matching vinyl with the days of the month for each envelope. The idea behind this is starting November 1st, you write something you are grateful for on the sheet of paper. Our plan is inspired by the original post where they also keep this year's paper in the envelopes and next year read what we wrote the previous year before adding their new note. The completed board sells for $42. You can purchase it this week only for $35.
As promised, you can also purchase the kit which will include the coin envelopes, board and vinyl for $16. If you would like to come and make it at a DIY workshop you will also have available for you the scrapbook paper, paint and good company. You will need to bring your own paper adhesive and it is recommended you bring your own paper cutter. I have a couple, but it may mean waiting.
If you do order the kit please specify your color choice for your vinyl. The Nut Brown is shown cut. I also have shown the rolls of chocolate brown and beige, but you can specify a different color. Please also specify if you prefer the print or script font in your email.
For those who would like to take advantage of the DIY workshop, we will have that available at my home in Yuma, Wednesday, October 23rd, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm, Thursday, October 24th, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm or Monday, October 29th, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. You will need between 90 minutes and 2 hours to finish this project.
