Giving Thanks

Since the season of giving thanks is upon us I want to share today that I am grateful for Monday's. It means my husband has a steady job and we will be warm, eat and contiue to have a lovely home. (even if the microwave and dishwasher BOTH died this last week! ugh)

Sunday Sentiments WK 22 - Choose to be Grateful

I love this saying. It is a great reminder that when we think we have everything against us, God has a plan and we have much to be thankful for.

I am also thankful to be in charge of the decorations for our church Christmas party coming in less than 3 weeks.

here is an  invitation I created for the party!

Peppermint invites-001

and I am making peppermint decorations using my Silhouette Cameo-

 Cutting these ruined/finished off my cutting mat. I had to order replacements from Amazon.

Then I was looking online for other peppermint ideas and found a blog with a great idea! I went to Amazon and bought 100,  9" white cardboard cake plates and I will try making a template of these rounds (the red part) and spray paint them instead to save buying more cutting mats!  I need about 100 of them for decorating the church hall to make it look really cute of course! If i dont like the spray painted look, I will cut the red part on my cameo and stick it to the white plates!

The white you see in the candies is NOT cardstock it's the white chipboard that comes in the Stampin up Designer papers I have a pile about 3" thick to use! SEE! You never know how handy that stuff we save will be someday!

I am still learning to use my Silhouette Cameo but the more I use it the more I love it!

Have a wonderful day!
