Thankful Banner

We’re just two days away from our Thanksgiving holiday and I’m thinking so much about y’all.  As I was getting a jump start on my grocery shopping yesterday (and the store was already getting crazy- on Monday!), I was wondering about you getting your shopping done and feeling like we are probably experiencing so many of the same things right now.  Planning menus, making lists, grocery shopping, trying to get the house in order, trying not to feel overwhelmed with too much to do in too little time.  I remember working full-time and just looking forward to the time off!  Many of you are doing that right now too, I’m sure.  
This time of year tends to get me all sentimental and reflective, so I wanted to tell you how much your support of this blog and your readership over the last several years has meant to me.  If it weren’t for you, writing this blog wouldn’t be half as fun.  Seriously.   Many of you have read since the beginning and it feels like we’ve grown up together.  It’s been great to connect with you and bounce ideas off of and I just appreciate you so much.  It can be scary to open up and share so much of your life over the web, but you have made me feel welcomed and supported.  So here’s a big ole’ thank you and hug from me in Houston to you, wherever you may be reading this. 

This Thankful banner couldn’t be easier to make.  Instead of printing or drawing my THANKFUL letters, I used a pretty floral fabric washi tape. I’ve gotten tape from or, so I can’t recall where this one was from.  The most difficult part of this project was peeling the fabric tape apart from the backing, but it wasn’t really that hard. 
The squares are 6×6 colored cardstock, so I didn’t even have to cut them.  I just affixed them together with safety pins and twine.  Then, I tied the twine around two tall, heavy candlesticks.  
I thought it would also be cute to affix the letters vertically, so you could just tape it longways to a narrow wall or cabinet- as opposed to hanging it banner style.

    I love the banner! So cute and even simple enough that I *might* be able to make one and let my 3 year old son help. He likes tape so the tape may end up other places too. I took tomorrow off work to start cooking (it's potluck, thankfully!) and finish cleaning up my home. We're hosting this year. AHHHHHHH! I hope you have a happy, wonderful Thanksgiving!

      Oh yeah, my son LOVES to play with the washi tape! Good for you for that extra day off work! Let the fun and cooking begin! 🙂
