My artistic 16-year-old daughter colored these pictures for me last Thanksgiving. I love them. I saved them & they're up on the fridge again this year. Artistic abilities & creativeness just run in our family, I guess. My mom & sister were both art majors and both great at almost every kind of art & craft. My husband & his family have more musical abilities. My girls inherited both!
I told Angie, "Out of all the things in this room that's the only thing I would buy." She laughed at me. When I saw that the price tag said $1.00 I bought it. I told her it was her Christmas present. Just wait -- I feel challenged. I may just alter this and show it to you again later. And since I have the decoupaged pumpkins in the background I'll tell you about this one:
This is my most recently published craft project. It was in the Somerset Holidays issue this year. The ONLY Thanksgiving project in the whole book! It started off with a paper mache pumpkin from Michael's. I had everyone in my family write what they were thankful for. I copied them and glued them on, too. I added photos & filled in spaces with bits of old text & crackle paint. Then rubbed a little burnt umber paint all over it to age it. And there's a little glitter on it, too.
