I am so very excited to be sharing with you the project I created for our November Thankful Blog Hop!  I have been wanting to create a Thankful Tree for our family for awhile now.  I have had it pinned to one of my Pinterest boards and thought this would be the perfect time!  I started off by taking my two youngest boys out in the backyard and we gathered some sticks that would be our branches for our Thankful Tree.  My oldest had more fun using it as a sword and baby Eli could not stop trying to eat the sticks but hey it was a good time!  Once we had enough sticks I found a large mason jar and filled it up with our branches and then filled the jar with some berry garland I had stashed away.  I just cut it up and then pushed it down into the mason jar.  Once my tree was up I started to work on my tags.  I took two different sized circle punches and punched out a stack of circles and then used my crop-a-dile to punch holes in the circles so I could add some twine.  I went ahead and stamped out some of the things I am thankful for using my Paper Wings Productions stamps.  I used a variety of stamps including Fall Add Ons, Sparkle, Fall Mix It Up, Snapshot Framer and the PWP Perfect Alphabet Stamp Set will be the perfect stamp set for us to create our own words and phrases!
