places everyone! places!

as the leaves start changing colors and the weather gets crisper, i know fall is here.  my FAVORITE!  the leaves falling from the trees along with the sound of the leaves blowing in the wind makes me giddy with delight.  with fall's arrival, i am quickly reminded the holiday season is fast approaching.

i don't cook and i don't bake. okay... i don't like to. so for me the holiday's aren't about cooking or baking, they are about decorating and making things.

one handmade tradition, i've held onto since childhood, is making placecards for family holiday meals.

something i now do with my own little artists. 

my style and skills have changed over the years but my love for making them has not. 

when thinking of holiday traditions, most jump to christmas but i cherish thanksgiving. time to reflect on all to be thankful for and the nearing of falls end.
to share my tradition with you, i've created a free download of the above placecards here for you to print and brighten up your thanksgiving or harvest meal.

Cute place cards! We've never done those at my house, but I've wanted to do it! They just make the table look so complete.

Cute! With just me and my hubby (and Thanksgiving with his mother and father, never anyone else) it's kind of silly for us to do place cards, but those are so cute!

Thanksgiving is definitely a tradition to keep! After all, we need to be reminded to be thankful in whatever situation we are at. Cute place cards!
