I love Thanksgiving! I love cooking the food, eating the food, getting together with family, and the general feeling of 'thankfulness'. doesn't sell. Halloween comes in so fast and then Christmas takes over...Thanksgiving is forgotten. Sad but true...for crafters anyway!
However, here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving pieces with a few of my own designs. I wish I could've done some scarecrows but being sick and 'out of sorts' for 3 weeks has knocked some of the 'umph' out of me. I WILL have some for the craft show though! Take a look!

The last of my hanging pumpkins...about 10"x10"

I love these because they come apart.
This is my 'Hippie' Turkey. He's living for a cause in his dressy leggings and long hair!
This is Tyler Turkey. He's dressed for the table already!
Another door greeter....also 10"x10"
What is Thanksgiving without the Pumpkin Pie?
These are the blocks. One side says Happy Fall (or Fall Happy however you want to look at it!) and the other side says...
Give Thanks. My kids love these!
I also threw in some pre-Christmas. The other side says...

Do you remember how to play this game? Leave me a comment with your name and tell me which one is your favorite.
Want a second chance to win? Leave me another comment with a name for my Hippie Turkey! Yeah, I don't know!!
ie: (Vicky Weaver: I like the Turkey door hanger)
(Vicky Weaver: How does Howard sound?????)
Remember this is limited to the US.
Come back Friday around 7:00 p.m. (EST) and I'll have 2 winners drawn randomly. Did I mention I'm giving away 2 things? Yeah, I am!!

Thanks Everyone!

Vicky, these are all really lovely and creative! If I have to pick, I think I dig the 'believe' blocks the best. :)

It's Amanda here...I love the block letters. Kid proof and since Kade knows his letters, he will love to look at them and practice! But truly a must have with kids. We're making block nativity scenes tonight for RS. I'm super excited! Marlene is heading it up.

As for a about "Amicable Alfred." He looks like he is waving his hand, which is friendly, and amicable is a synonym for friendly. :)

Vicky: As usual your work is wonderful. So hard to choose but if I had to I would choose the pie, it is just too cute.

Vicky: I think I would name the turkey Thankful, because he is thankful not to be eaten!! LOL!!

I think my favorite of all these adorable creations is the pull-apart pumpkins because I could leave those out all fall! When you're ready to sell them, I want a set of three, please~!

I love your style. My two favorites are Tyler Turkey (I am partial with one in the family) and the 'Give Thanks' blocks. I will try and think of a creative name for the turkey.
