Creative Me Linky Party… Happy Thanksgiving!

The Southern Intitute

Well, the countdown to Turkey Day is ON and I can’t wait!  I love Thanksgiving and the meal that goes with it.  I love having family over and cooking together.  I love bringing it all together, sitting down as a family with all of the kids around, and gobbling it up!  I love the mindfulness that Thanksgiving brings… we have so much to be thankful for, don’t we?

Before you enter the linky party today or click off of this page,
won’t you leave me a comment and tell me…
What is one thing that you’re thankful for today?
Then tell me… What crafty thing is on your Christmas list this year?


***And check in later today for a special Cyber Monday announcement,

then on Wednesday morning for the best giveaway we’ve ever had here!  


This week’s featured blog is  Hooplapalooza!  Lisa linked up these fun Thanksgiving Turkey Handprint Plates, which are just an adorable keepsake!  

Thanks for the inspiration and for coming to the linky party, Lisa!  I’m a little bit sad that the Thanksgiving projects are going away, but you know what that means…



 I’m thankful for all of you and how you make this party so much fun!  I can’t wait to see what you link up this week!

Just a few guidelines for linking up.  Please:

Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. Thankful for family time around the table and crafting up homemade mixes in a jar for Christmas! HOpe you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  2. I am thankful for friends. Today is my birthday and I was having a bad morning until my friends turned up and we had a tea party in our backyard. They didn’t care that i was in my PJs when they arrived, or that i had prepared nothing. They just got in and helped and cheered me up. I am also thankful that I finished my Childrens Christmas book and have published it… and that it has been picked to make into a short film for our city’s big Carols event, Glow.
    I hope you like it :)

    • HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND!!! And NO WAY! That’s so amazing, I’m very proud of you! You rock!

    as much as i hate it sometimes, i am so thankful for technology. i don’t have any family nearby so it keeps me connected to all of my family and far away friends. and i’d love gift cards to my favorite craft/fabric stores so i can get supplies as projects come up. :)
