If you’re from the U.S., you’re probably thinking this post is preposterously early. But if you’re a canuck like me, you know that Thanksgiving is only two weekends away. Eek!
I like to find different ways to make holiday decorations unique. The easiest way to do that is with a free printable. In this case, I’ve made a printable for you to jazz up your napkins. Each napkin has a laurel wreath in four different very autumnal colours, surrounding the words “give thanks”. Very thanksgiving appropriate me thinks!
Here’s what you need and how to do it.
1 Iron the napkins flat.
2 Download and print the pdf. Cut each section out.
3 Place a design face down on your napkin and iron on according to your transfer sheet instructions.
4 Repeat, allow to cool and set the table!
This year we’ll be spending thanksgiving with our family on the beautiful sunshine coast. I can’t wait!
What are your thanksgiving plans?
For a bit more Thanksgiving inspiration:
From The Thanksgiving Archives
A couple years ago I got a notepad with a grocery checklist. I use it regularly. Like, all the time. So much so that I’m down to my last few pages and am starting to feel a bit at a loss. So what did I decide to do? Make my own and share it with you!
I find this checklist particularly useful if I’m shopping for a recipe, or if there are several specific items I need to fill up the pantry and fridge. I don’t know about you, but if I go into a grocery store with more than 5 items on my mental list, I’m bound to forget a few. I never forget anything if I bring my paper checklist – I almost always forget if I rely on my memory. ….kind sad isn’t it?
It’s not as flushed out as my original version, but it’s organized in a way I prefer and includes items I purchase more regularly. Of course you and I don’t always buy the same things, so there’s a space for you to add additional items under each section, and a few more in case it doesn’t belong anywhere.
I hope this makes your grocery shopping trips a little easier like it has for me!
Are you like me and need a shopping list? Or do you have a superpower-worthy memory?
How did school get to be one week away? And some of you are already back in school! Summer always seems to fly by doesn’t it?
The start of the school year is a pretty magical time, filled with excitement, uncertainty, and fun surprises. To kick off the year with a little something for your teacher, why not print off this free card and show your teacher how excited you are for the new school year!
Yep, usually it’s customary to give a word of thanks and maybe even a gift at the end of the school year, but why not at the beginning? It surely will leave a fond impression on your teacher. No, I’m not encouraging brown nosing, just starting the new year on the right foot ;)
As it stands now our strike
isn’t nearing an end, so it looks like I won’t be back in the classroom come Tuesday. *sigh*. So I wish all of you a LOVELY first day back at school! I hope your new teacher tickles you pink!
