Do ya’ll miss the 12 days already? So do I. Thus, I’ve decided to accept ideas from anyone who’d like to do a tutorial similar to the ’12 Days’ tutorials on this blog anytime between now and before Christmas. If you have something you think we just MUST know how to do, let me know and we’ll feature them randomly in the next few weeks. It’ll be kinda like an encore.
And, in the spirit of creative living, I thought you might enjoy my first attempts at Thanksgiving/Christmas decorating. I took Darby’s idea from day 12 and made the cutest banners ever. I just printed these wonderful letters on regular paper and stapled them to a ribbon and then hung them from my cabinets.
It reminds me to be thankful for all the little things I so carelessly take for granted.
It reminds me that gratitude is not automatic. It must be exercised and cared for and sought after.
That thankfulness is a choice—-and leads us to see ourselves and others in a new light.
Gratitude changes us. And learning to be grateful takes effort and discipline.
So, I thought this giant sign would be perfect for my stubborn, crazy brain.
Like someone is screaming—-in a sweet southern voice—-’remember to be thankful’. I think it may help. And let’s face it, it’s a nice change from gourds and turkeys.
