Last minute Thanksgiving Preparations

I wrapped Hershey Nuggets in Sweater Weather DS Paper, measurements are 1" by 3", to make these candies.

And I have 22 people coming to my house and only one Tablescape kit so I decided to make them by families. We plan to give these out and have each family member write down what they are thankful for and then have each of us share it with everyone after dinner.

My Family and I serving Thanksgiving Dinner to Camden Street School in Newark!

My family and I had the honor of serving Thanksgiving dinner to the Dream Academy School on Camden Street in Newark, NJ last night, a project of Hope Worldwide.  What a fun evening!  We got to help sort through clothes and give clothes to the needy.  
Then there was entertainment in the gymnasium and a full Thanksgiving meal in the cafeteria where we were stationed at the salad dressing, rolls table.

My other son was stationed with one of his best buds at the fried chicken/chicken nuggets table.  Yes, they did serve turkey, too.  My boys had such a wonderful time.  When I put Hunter down to sleep and asked him what his favorite part of the day was, he answered, "serving!"  We were made to serve others.

Favors from Thankful for You Class

Here's one of the little purses that I made for each of my guests with the Petite Purse Bigz Die L at my Thankful for You Class I held at my house last Tues night.  I used the Sweater Weather DS Paper to make 6 unique purses and filled them with chocolates!  My guests loved them!

Thanksgiving Table Sprinkles

The Autumn Accents Bigz Die  is such a useful staple in my die collection because not only can I make great embellishments for fall cards but I can make place settings and table sprinkles for my Thanksgiving dinner table with them, too!
