Thanksgiving Dinner DIY Printable Set



i am a great big lover of thanksgiving! gathering as our immediate family or with the extended "small" utah family of more than 100 (that is just my fathers side).  I love the smells, the laughter and joy of having family together. my favorite meal by far is thanksgiving dinner! YUM! YUM!

it is a special time of year, and a great way to add to this beautiful presentation of a feast, is make your guests feel extra special with adding some personalization. I made this thanksgiving set to add to the sweet spirit and gratitude of this holiday. Have personal name placements , a thank you or tag that can go around a lil gift or napkin and highlight the dessert table with dessert signs.

It is a fun simple beautiful way to tie everything together. So pretty!


If you have some family traditions we can def make things to fit your day, How about "I am thankful for" cards, the menu or program, name placements, cupcake toppers, tags, thank yous, dessert/entree signs or a welcome sign. The ideas are endless.

i am very much looking forward to thanksgiving. I went cold turkey (hehehehe- perfect phrase for this time of year) and have not been drinking soda or eating any treats, it has been a week now and I am doing pretty darn awesome! My free day to eat is thanksgiving day :) so yes I am counting down to eating some pumpkin and apple pie together with some whip cream and carmel sauce and maybe some pecans sprinkled on top!

Early Bird Christmas Sale 25%OFF

Goodness where has my mind gone. I posted it on facebook and we can't forget about my blog :).
We have about 2 months before Christmas (crazy to think this year is on its way out-WAY to fast!)  and it is still some what early.....so I thought I would give all you somewhat early shoppers a discount to my store. It is 25% OFF! Since Christmas falls on the 25th and all I thought it would be appropriate and a lil higher than 15. I made a cute shop banner to announce the sale. It is pretty cute! lovin that red bird on the branch with a lil present in his mouth, and the colors. I love this red blue color palette-if you haven't noticed.

More Christmas Designs

I have been slacking a lil bit in posting the many designs for christmas cards & designs. I have so many fun ideas I can't get them out fast enough or catch my baby fast enough when I am changing his diaper. The joys and so goes life eh?

























so here are some of the latest :)

Christmas Jubilee

Good Morning!! obviously I can not get to bed. All sunday I had a headache, I was in our car heading to grandmas and still had htis headache. So around 7:00pm I took some pills that have some caffine in it. Word to the wise....You shouldn't take these from 5-8 hours before bed time. Hence me being up still, but I am happy to report the headache is gone. Being a mom and all, sometimes  you dont get alot done during the day..so taking advantage if you will. I have been able to get SO much done since max and hubby is asleep. Won't be very cool when I go to sleep and see how much sleep I do get.

happy to announce I have added a few things here-n-there of more Holiday cheer. From more designs for your Family Holiday cards to Already Printed  and presenting my Mister snowman from a birds view Card & Sticker set.

I love these. I did these many years ago. Loved the design and felt this has never been done before from this perspective. So, I got me a fancy expensive lawyer and got them copyrighted. I have made these cards & stickers! So cute, Right?! I love them. They also make some darling cookie decorating and cupcake designs, wood cutouts, and fabric details.

I have been selling them around the holiday season and now listing them for you to enjoy!

It is a limited stock. When they are gone they are gone. I am only posting a few at a time.


If you would like them in larger qtys email or message me on here or my etsy store and we can see if we can get you how many you need!!

have a great monday!!! Hopefully I can get to sleep here soon!

forget me not-and the pictures are always nice to include-






forget-me-not

many of you ladies I am sure loved the talk from president uchtdorf as much as I did. He has a beautiful way, like a few others, of saying the perfect thing at the perfect time for us ladies. From the moment he mentioned that lil flower I tooned in because it is one of my favorite lil flowers that I have tried to grow, or keep alive in my pot out on my porch. i love the lil aspect and the simple bright sweetness with the forget me not. Now, it has so much more meaning that we should not forget.



With conference on its way, I thought of a few different versions and thought a sale would be appropriate
On all religious prints BUY ONE GET ONE FREE for a limited time only. They make great presents or had a special decor element to any room.  Some of the prints you can pick a custom color.

We have a new winner.....The new winner is ASHLEY..Ashley you have 48 hours to contact me for a free 8x10 Print from my etsy store...Or I will announce another winner. :)

Leaves of Color




well you know all the colors of the rainbow..here are my favorite colors of fall..just a sweet pretty  sketch of mine, scanned in and made into a pattern/design to add a lil texture and a lil fall flavor to my designs. What is your favorite color of fall?
wouldn't these be so pretty to print on a canvas or rich heavy linen paper and frame them to add a fall decor to your house??? ohh pretty! They will be up on my etsy. I am trying to figure out how to have a free download button on here and give my readers free downloadable files...wouldnt that be fun..ALL IN FAVOR? say Aye! still on my hunt to figure that out...hopefully soon.. any help  I will take it!

Falling into fall

I do love summer but one of my favorite times of year is the fall. Our pretty mountains that we are surrounded by, the pretty colors that echo fall and ring in the holiday season...and the crisp air and yummy aromas of the food that is in season this time of year. Let's just say pumpkin apple caramel pie/cheesescake. Simply bliss and a party in my mouth :). these are the yummy smells of "home".So with fall on my mind and the many joys it brings here is a lil something somthin to bring in the fall season.

the 411 and some inside info of my process....it is always interesting how artists go about their work. I always start fresh and with hand sketches. I am always fond of drawing, sketching. It makes me happy. Once I get a solid design and I am happy with it, some times after hours or days of refining, I scan it in to my wonderful mac(apple) computer. Bring in the sketch and had either  my pictures of some amazing textures I have found or either found some textures. I love combining many resources. Quick tangent and I promise to get back :)...One of my loves and joys is oil painting on a rich or old beaten down piece of wood, let the wood shape my art. hmmm simply beautiful and a rich vintage feel. Love this. SO back to my process, after I bring in all the resources(hand sketch, textures, patterns, etc) and I apply color and add text and...VOILA!

So..here is a design for fall. I hope you enjoy!
