DIY Thankful Banner + Round Robin


Today I'm honored to be featured in a round robin craft 
with an amazing group of talent bloggers, We're sharing our favorite fall craft
over at Mom's Best, well technicaly I'm share two crafts, a Thankful jar + this banner.
This banner is perfect for a fire place, or above your thanksgiving table scape 

Here's how to make this fun adore banner + the printable. Click here for the printable here & here.

On the backside of your printable, use your pencil and create a lead background, this will transfer unto you're banner, one you've created a lead background, flip the paper over and place it onto the kraft paper banner, than trace. The lead will transfer to the kraft paper.

 You can see in this photo the lead transfer background. Just make sure when you're transfering to press hard.
Now go over the lead pencil marks with a black marker, if there are any lead marks erase them.

Hang and enjoy you're "Give Thanks" banner & enjoy!

Finishing up some last minute DIY's before this fall shoot,
One of my favorites, DIY "thankful" mugs, I love these, so simple but
Make a dinner feels personalized! You can read my Cheers Mug Tutorial over here
Same idea, just different wording, this year I'll be serving yummy cider with
our dinner, so these mugs are a must, I'll also have chilled sparkling cider.
In the must adorable metallic gold pumpkin glasses from Kate Aspen

Guys, I'm so like-holiday-ed-out, I'm not sure if I should stop and celebrate thankgiving
Just to clean it up the next day just to decorate for christmas or just skip it entirely,
Seriously I'm a little torn..but feeling slightly overwhelmed, could time just stop.
Actually that's all I'm asking for for Christmas, too much?

Anyways I'm so grateful to be busy, and to fit 12:00 am projects into my sleeping time.
I've done a little organizing, I officially have an organized "events" tab.
Check, check, check it out. I even linked all the photo posts to it,
So it's SO worth you're time. (wink, wink)

Also, if you're looking for a new Young Women's New Beginnings Theme for (this year 2015),
I promise I'm working hard on getting it scheduled. I just have to meet with my counselors for their approval... We wont be having ours until February but in the meantime I've started a pinterest board with our theme PLUS ideas & i'll be sharing posts with DIY decorations I'll be putting together.
So in basic terms, stay tuned, it's all coming, slowly but coming.
You can find the adventure theme ideas here with the kit.

So go check out the new events tab for all goodies + the hi-res photos!

Sometimes it's funny ya know? I throw kids parties & I don't have kids!
I have the worlds most darling nieces ever, but there 2 1/2 hours away from us,
haha, aside from that this can TOTALLY, absolutely be fore adults too, am I right?
I put this little party together, more photo are featured over at Mom's Best

I collaborated with Hello Tosha Prints those DARLING cat masks,
+ Tosha included a downloadable cat bandit mask, so fun, which can be found here!
Sweet Estelle, which has the best party selection, & Glam Fete for that darling garland.
My best kept secret for throwing in party is using the dollar section at target or your local dollar store,
I grabbed the plates, napkins, scallop buckets, spiders, milk bottles (were $3 for 2 bottles),
little plastic cauldrons (than I used a chalk marker to write names, as a place setting marker)
I gathered all those supplies from target! Yes, target in a total pinch came through, & all for a dollar!
So my point at the end of the day is NEVER under estimate the power of the dollar section!
You can read more of the details + tips I share over at Mom's Best!

Happy Halloween to you + all your little kiddos!
