It's been a while since I posted a project. I'm sorry for that but I have been busy with family issues.
Thanksgiving is only a few days away. What do you all do for Thanksgiving? My family goes to my Aunt's every year. My Mom, Dad, Brother, Grandmother, my girls, hubby and myself. Plus my Aunt and Uncle makes for a nice day. My Aunt and Uncle do all the cooking. My Mom usually brings cookies or something and my Aunt gets a cake. We eat dinner early and then spend the day just talking and hanging out.
My Dad loves blueberry pie, so one year my Aunt decided to make one instead of buying it. Well let me tell you, she hasn't made one since! The year she made it, my kids were playing and decided to take the pie from the table when no one was looking and hid it in a closet! When we realized it was missing, we found it with a footprint in it! It has been covered, but somehow the littlest one (which was only 2 or 3 at the time) had stepped in it! My Aunt didn't think it was very funny, but the rest of us did! Still to this day, we can't go a Thanksgiving Day without mentioning it! My mom even took pictures and made my Aunt a scrapbook page of that day!
Ok so on to my project. Last year we couldn't be with my family for the holiday due to hubby having surgery two months prior. My Aunt lives on a very bumpy road. I felt bad about not going and decided that this year I wanted to do something special for her.
I made her a gift set to "thank" her for the tradition. My daughter and I worked on them together. We've been watching Christmas movies and crafting at night.
Kayla made her a jar we will fill with potpourri and a writing tablet. I made her a pail and a notebook for her purse. She loves purple(which is my favorite color) and polar bears. I bought two small candles to put in the pail. The problem is that I love the way the pail turned out and now I want to keep it!
We used Kayla's Yin & Yang stamp. I just love this stamp and seem to use it a lot.
I also made my Aunt a recipe holder. Her kitchen is black & white, so no purple on this one. I did use the polar bears though.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am off to work on Christmas presents now. Lots to do, lots to do!
I would like to enter these into the following challenges...
