Friday - Friendship and Friendly Fill-ins


Hello everyone!  I have been pretty crafty the last couple of weeks, so I want to show the Friendship Friday readers at Create with Joy two things.

First is my Autumn centerpiece.  I bought a wood trough at Michael's (one of my top 3 stores for craft supplies). I did some decoupage on the sides and ends then filled it with things that remind me of Fall, like moss, neutral flowers, acorns, pinecones, orange accents, and a sage-colored candle in a small hurricane glass.

Second, I made this cute little Ho-Ho-Ho sign for one of my daughters.  I saw it on Pinterest, but that person had used a round sign (makes sense, because Santa is pretty round).  I used what I had on hand.  A thin, rectangular piece of unfished wood, twine, paint, silver and white cardstock, and ribbon and fake pine needles for the bow. I love how it turned out!

And speaking of Michael's and my favorite craft stores, when I shop online, I get cash back from Rakuten.  It's really easy.  This month I am getting $39 just for buying things I was going to buy anyway.  See if they have your favorite stores!

Now, for Friendly Fill-ins!  These are hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.

1. I am thankful for ______________, _____________________ and ________________________.

2. I look forward to eating ________________ on Thanksgiving.

3. I didn’t realize _________ until _________.
4. There’s no shame in _________.

My answers:

1.  I am thankful for God, family, and retirement.

2.  I look forward to eating turkey, cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, and cranberry sauce - the jelly kind -  on Thanksgiving.  It's my favorite "food" holiday of the year!

3.  I didn't realize how much I could miss family members until they moved away.😭

4.  There's no shame in seeking assistance for mental health issues.  At least, that's what I try to tell myself.

Have a great weekend!  Good books, good crafting, or whatever makes you happy!
