Here is a pic of the white craft pumpkins that are outside my front door and that my dear neighbors chase down the street for me when we get a big gust of wind...haha! I seem to add a new one each year...
and then we have the burlap. I absolutely love the look of burlap, but boy is it messy. My freshly cleaned craft room was a dusty, burlapy mess after a rotary cutterfest for this Thanksgiving banner. After cutting the banners, I then hand-stamped a swirl in cosmic copper and burgundy glitz ink in each corner. I then monogrammed each flag to spell out "Be Grateful". I took a coordinating ribbon and glued it down on the banner and accented with a few rusty gold hydrangea petals. I put it up in my dining room for our Thanksgiving Day dinner. My first time hosting Thanksgiving -- which means I have to cook the turkey. That's an entirely different panic attack I'm trying to put off right now :)

I was planning for these awesome monogrammed burlap napkin rings, but have re-thought that idea as I don't want shedding burlap on the plates at the table. Not to mention all that dust triggered a sneezefest for Keil and Wilson, so I am on to Plan B for the monogrammed napkin rings. I'll keep you posted on that progress.
Until the next craft,
