Give Thanks!


Before we talk about this fun project and what we're thankful for. Let me just say, that you know you are in over your head when you don't realize it's Wednesday..... the entire day. And then, when you realize it's Thursday, it still doesn't register that you missed Weigh in Wednesday. I think that from now on, someone needs to post a comment on Tuesday reminding me that the next day is Wednesday. I guess my mom was right all those times she told me that I'd forget my head if it weren't attached!!

Maybe I'll just pretend that these slip ups are intentional to keep you on your toes. You know, so you don't just show up on Wednesday hoping to win a prize. Maybe if Weigh in Wednesday was on some random day of the week you'd visit even more. HMMmmmm, I might have to think about that:)

Anyway, I'll make it up to you. Visit the blog tomorrow for Farewell Forever Fat Friday. We'll play the same game as usual.

OK, so today I am thankful for Krista! Krista works in our office and helps me with everything. Just a side note here, that all our employees are fabulous, not just Krista! But, today Krista is helping me with the blog and she doesn't even know it. Last week she sent me photos of this cute project she made for her home. I thought I'd share it with you! She used all products from our Gretel collection with Mr. Campy ribbon and our Buck Naked Alpha-buttons.

Very very beautiful. Well, it also helps that she has a nice mantle to hang it from. Any other suggestions for hanging a garland such as this when you don't have a fireplace or mantle?

Heather said...

This is awesome!!! The Gretel collection is my all time favorite paper, this turned out just beautiful!

Tina said...

That Krista is so talented! Wish she still lived here!

Hi Brooke,

I love hanging garlands over the top of doorways (make sure the door swings away from the garland!). You can also hang them below a grouping of photos on your wall, or get a decorative wall shelf and hang them from that.

Farewell Forever Fat Friday - love it! Saying goodbye to my excess weight is *definitely* something I am thankful for.

If we could really just make the fat go "farewell", I'd RAK everybody myself!

I love how all your collections work together! That you can take a piece of this and add it to that...
Very cute project!
I've fallen off a bit on the weigh in :( But I have a good excuse- It's my birthday week! Too much cake and my favorite things but it had to be done...
Did you lose weight on your trip eating all that fish??

This is my favorite project that you've shown!
I forgot it was Wednesday on Wednesday too. We were sitting down for dinner when my sister called and asked why we weren't at tap class.... Morgan has tap on Wednesday nights at 5:30pm. I totally forgot the day!

What a terrific project! It's so homey and so mod at the same time!

Farewell Fat Friday -- Love that!!
with the holidays approaching I have to remind myself that less really is more.. ... You don't really enjoy that second piece of pecan pie anymore than the first so why not just stop there ;) at least that is the plan ....
