Snow Flake Card and Ornament - OSAT Season of Cheer Blog Hop

 Snowflakes are a big part of our Season of Cheer here in Ohio!  We don't really have to dream of a white Christmas, more often than not - we have snow on Christmas here!

So I made a snow card and a snowflake ornament for this month's One Stamp at a Time Season of Cheer Blog Hop!

The card is a double Z fold with a circle cut out and a snowflake hanging from some fishing line! My husband is an avid fisherman, so fishing line is a staple at my house.  This DSP is absolutely gorgeous and my photos don't do it justice!  This cards has a lot of shine and shimmer to it.

  I used the Stitched Snowflake dies, the Layering Circles Dies, the Seasonal Labels dies, Night of Navy Cardstock, Basic White Cards Stock, the gorgeous Peaceful Place 12 X12" Designer Series Paper, some white Stampin' Emboss Powder  and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Deer stamp set.


Since this hop is all about a card and a 3D item - I made a 3D snowflake ornament that coordinates with the card.

This was made with 4 die cut snowflakes folded down the middle and glued back to back with a piece of fishing line glued down the middle.  The outside was made with the Layering Circle dies - two blue and one white scalloped circle sandwiched in the middle.   The little tags is cut with a die from the Ornate Frames die. The bow is made from the White 3/8" glittered Organdy Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed these projects.

Thanksgiving Table 2021 -a bit Boho

 Welcome to my casual Thanksgiving table that has taken on a bit of a black and white boho vibe this year.

I am joining 21 other table stylists today, bringing you our best Thanksgiving table decor.  Rita from Panopoly has gathered all of us together for this wonderful hop!!  We are thankful for Rita and her great organizational skills - she does such a fabulous job as our ring leader!  All the links for the other bloggers will be at the bottom of my post.

We will actually be spending our Thanksgiving at my son and daughter-in-law's house this year so I won't be setting a big fancy Thanksgiving Table.  So I wanted to set a casual table that we could enjoy a little Friendsgiving one evening!

It is the smallest things that sometimes inspire a whole theme!   I have always loved mixing and matching patterns so I fell in love with this little dip tray set with the different tile patterns on the little bowls while I was shopping with a gift card in one of my favorite shops.  They also had a cracker tray to match that  came home with me as well.
I went with lots of wood and naturals for the decor to keep this casual and relaxed.
My little pilgrim girl was a Marshall's find - she was dressed for the occasion to be featured as my centerpiece.  
A simple white and black plate stack with the salad plate wording - Gather, Blessed, Thankful, and Grateful - expresses the perfect Thanksgiving sentiments.

In each bowl I placed a small carton box favor that I made and stamped with a Thanksgiving sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set.  I tied up the carton with some raffia - because you just can't do Thanksgiving without a little raffia somewhere!  
As promised - here are the links to all of the other talented bloggers that are eager to share their beautiful Thanksgiving tables with you:

My New Craftroom!

 We have finally finished remodeling what used to be a storage room into a beautiful Craftroom!

This room serves several purposes, I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, so I hold classes and all my stamping supplies in this room.  I run a non-profit organization with my daughter which requires a lot of supplies and paperwork.  Plus I am a dish-a-holic and I do tablescaping as a hobby - so I need additional storage for dishes and seasonal decor.
