Thankful Thoughts

First order of business...CONGRATULATIONS! to Heather. She is the winner of the giveaway. I will get you your goodies ASAP Heather, yea!

Now as promised here is today's project. I am trying to start some new traditions with my little family so one that I've always liked is where people sit around the table on Thanksgiving and each one shares something they are thankful for. Well most of us have MANY blessings in our lives, how can they be narrowed down to just one?, so I created this "Thankful Thoughts" pail. The idea is to write down a blessing each day of November until Thanksgiving and then share them together at dinner. I have precut pieces of paper already in the jar.
These clear pails are available at any scrapbook store and online. I simply cut two strips of Designer Series Paper and adhered them to a larger coordinating cardstock strip. then I used clear glue dots to hold them in place within the pail. I added some grossgrain ribbon along the top and tied smaller pieces to the handle.For the lid, I cut a circle out of Designer Series paper using my Coluzzle cutting system. If you don't have one of these, you should get one, it makes cutting circles SO easy. I then stamped the sentiment "Thankful Thoughts" using the Stampin' Up! set, Thouroughly Thankful, in Bravo Burgandy. Finally, I added some leaves punched from cardstock. So there it is. I'd love to hear what fun holiday traditions you have in your family. Feel free to share in the comments section.
