Thankful

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for everyone who takes the time to visit my blog and leave supportive comments. You have no idea how much they mean to me!

The little hanging above was created using the Tim Holtz Thankful Silhouettes stamp set. I used Terra Cotta and Cranberry (how appropriate!) Paint Adirondack Dabbers and stamped onto a piece of rough muslin. The muslin was stitched to a piece of burlap and then attached to a ribbon-tied stick with Trinket Pins.

How cute are these?! They're little pearl acorns that I made by coloring large pearl beads with Terra Cotta and Butterscotch Adirondack alcohol inks. I popped the real acorns out of the cap and replaced them with the pearls. They are so pretty - I think they would make adorable little Christmas ornaments too!

Happy Thanksgiving from Cheepers too! Don't forget to check back tomorrow - I have a really pretty project to share with you and a coupon code for Black Friday!

  7. the white cloth seems to be tilted and the holes for hanging are also not at same level, which obviosly makes it clumsy when hung.
