Thanksgiving Preparations

Always like to do something a little different when the family comes over for Thanksgiving.

These goofy guys graced our table a couple years ago.
 Unfortunately, the ideas don't usually come to me until the date is fast approaching. So this year like most others, while I'm trying to tidy up, shop and pre-bake for the big day I'm also putting together placecards and other table decor.  Actually this year I'm  a little ahead of schedule since I complete these today . . .

Since opening my shop I've seen soooo many mustaches on etsy .  So I thought I'd feature a few turkeys in disguise at our Thanksgiving get-together this year.
I made these to hold our napkins and silverware and plan to add names and use them as placecards as well. 
I happened to run across a bargain at Walmart - 2 plastic tumblers for $.50 - added a vinyl mustache to these as well . . . Should be good for a giggle or two!! You can tell I'll be breaking out the "good stuff" haha - (we don't own china, crystal or real silverware). 

Do you think the disguise works??  
Good luck fellas!

Hope you have a fun Thanksgiving and are blessed with many more things to be thankful for in the coming year!!

Following the Shepherd

Not spending much time indoors this week - it is just TOO GORGEOUS outside!! Loving the warm sunshine! and knowing colder temps are fast approaching makes me appreciate it that much more.
I've gotten my garden cleaned out, have done some shrub pruning and flower bed sprucing up as well. (A "plus" I've noticed in these fall gardening endeavors - since night temps are colder there are a lot fewer bugs and spiders. Can definitely live without any more Big Ugly Spider Sightings!!)

We don't go for a lot of "add-ons" for our vehicles - we have an antenna ball to assist in identifying our small dark SUV in a parking lot filled with other small dark SUV's, but not much else. But . . . if you have a craft/vinyl cutter you've got to have something special on your back window don't you??

Here's what I came up with for us. A little "unique-ness" and a little witness ♥ . . .

If you applied the vinyl to a glass photo frame or a tile it would be lovely as home decor as well - great for your desk or as a gift!

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
John 10:27-28

My Hero!

Thought I'd share how my little halloween project turned out . . .

So Fun!!

Didn't want to keep all the fun to myself so here's a related file to help you showcase your hero!
