So Thankful…

This time of year, my thoughts are often centered around all that I’m thankful for in my life…from family to this crafting hobby of mine!

First up this month, is a decor-piece I made, using one of these cool vintage Mason Jar Lids as a base!

If you’ll notice, I also utilized the vintage clothespins from my Dad, which I mentioned HERE.  After gluing the pins onto the jar base, I tied it with some hemp & Twirly Twine.

Layered Bingo Cards, and diecuts from the Family Fun collection, created the center focus of the piece.

I dressed the paper dolls, and tucked them into the doily pocket.  This way they can be taken out and played with, then returned to their spot.  A fun little addition to our November decor, that brings out the Family Gratitude focus during this month of Thanksgiving.

Lastly, a “Thankful For You Daily” card:

I used some gorgeous papers, accents, and ephemera from the Kitsch Kitchen section of the VSM store.

I created the card sentiment using both Twirly Twine tickets, as well as words cut out from THIS versatile paper.

This Days-of-the-Week ephemera sheet was the perfect complement to my Thankful Daily theme…I added subtle layering with a bingo card and Linen Tinted Tape…my favorite!

Wishing you all a month full of thankful thoughts &, as always, lots of crafting!

    Both of these projects are adorable!!! I love the vintage ephemera pieces mixed with the rustic nature of the jar lid (metal) and the wooden elements (the clothespins and the ruler frame). I also like the idea of the doily pocket and being able to remove the paper dolls! Very cute! You did a great job, Kari! I am wondering, what kind of adhesive did you use to mount the clothespins securely to the Mason lid in a vertical position like that? 🙂

      Thanks so much for the sweet comments, Donna! For the pins, I just used a hot glue gun, and they are very strong and steady. 🙂 I hid the glue in between the pins by wrapping the twine/hemp around them.
