Here is one of the ideas, I have brewing up there in my brain for our card this year. Santa Claus and my two little ladies! I always illustrate our Christmas cards, and have lots of ideas, but always find myself waiting until the last minute. Usually I am sending my cards out on the 23rd!
How about you, are yours ready to mail out the 1st of December, or are you more like me, waiting until the very last minute...?
Dear friends, I hope you are enjoying a day filled with
I am so thankful to you my sweet friends!
Here's a fun last minute holiday craft idea for you and your guests to make, we make this every year at my house!
Tom The Thankful Turkey
To Make This Thankful Turkey you will Need
2 paper bags
Fill large paper bag with newspaper to create the body.
Fill smaller paper bag with newspaper to create the head.
Tie together, attach with tape and or ribbon.
Cut or draw eyes, feet and beak out of construction paper and attach to Turkey's body.
For thankful feathers
Cut assorted colors of construction paper into feather shapes. Attach stick or skewer to back of paper with tape.
When guests arrive, have them write a word or two about what they are thankful for on each feather. Then, stick the feather into the turkey body and voila! you have Tom the Thankful Turkey.

I got mail this weekend, from Mr. Toast! YES! I was the winner of a contest over at his blog Hot Toast and Jam. I correctly guessed the location of this year's Christmas Tea...We are going to the Isle of Mull in Scotland. How fabulous, a box just for me. I must admit my family was a tad bit jealous when the box came...addressed to ME! Inside were delightful confections of chocolate and a box of English Tea, a little Elf, and a hand written note from our host, Mr. Toast, himself.
Just look at all of these goodies!
While I had my tea, I sat and picked out a few outfits to bring along with me.

and when I get there, I will need some time to relax after the long journey, maybe grab a cup of tea with the host - AND, I have heard it can get quite blustery on the northern shores of Scotland, so I think this gorgeous dress and jacket from Roberto Cavalli will keep me nice and toasty while we explore
