A Thanksgiving Sampler

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share a couple quick things I made
for Thanksgiving decorations.
I made a Thanksgiving Sampler but I did it the cheaters way.
Years ago, I used to embroider and cross stitch but who has
time for that these days?
So of course I used the computer.
I played around with different fonts, symbols, and colors
until I came up with something I was happy with.

Then I just printed it out, placed it on a piece of blue card stock,
 and put it in a frame.


~ so simple ~

The next project was even easier.

I had found a really large leaf outside and after it dried, 
I kept moving it around trying to find a way to display it.
Then it suddenly came to me ~
(very dramatic like) !

Remember this frame I showed you a while back?

Well now it is proudly displaying my lovely leaf!
Isn't that just brilliant of me?  : )

Here are both of my projects hanging together.

I see this every time I walk into the house from the garage
so it's nice have something fun to look at.
I'm so happy and appreciative that you looked at it too!

~ I definitely count all of you as one of my many blessings ~
