2013 Thanksgiving/Christmas Craft Reveal

Hello there!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  Ours was very busy as usual, traveling from one family gathering to another...lots of food, too!  But overall we had a great time seeing family and just spending with time with them.  Well here is, as promised, the "big" reveal of my annual "Thanksgiving craft" that I shared with my family this year.  A duel holiday decoration!  I am very pleased with how they turned out!  The pictures just do not do them justice.  Plus, this is just a sample of the 4 different designed paper backgrounds that were available to choose from.  A lot of work and hours put into making 30 of theses.  Do you know what happens when you procrastinate and wait till the last minute...lots of hours put into making it at the last minute!  I was truly blessed because I was able to get my kids involved in making these and they did a really great job.  They helped a lot with the painting part and even asked if they could help with the final steps, but unfortunately I just could not give up those last detailed parts.  Can you say, "Control Freak"!  Yes, that is me sometimes!  Oh well, they all were completed the day before Thanksgiving and then I moved onto my baking and then onto making some Christmas cards.  Unfortunately, I did not have time to take pictures of all of the cards.  Now I have been spending time resting and recouping only to get behind on other things.  I haven't even got any Christmas decorations up yet, and that is really rare, for me.  I will do it this week for sure!
