Thanksgiving Placecards

I got my Big E on Wednesday and have spent a majority of the last couple of days playing with it, that is of course, around getting ready for my family Thanksgiving shindig. I hosted the party this year so I had to accumulate extra tables and seating so that we could accomodate everyone, I had to figure out how to do a turkey (which turned out fabulous BTW, thanks to a Giada de Laurentis recipe on, and as if that's not enough I decided to make these little boxes for placecards which in my own personal opinion turned out adorable. I used TBBM, SYM, and WIMG cricut cartridges and I also used the ATB label maker for the names. The adults thought they were cute and the kids, not surprisingly, were just excited about the m&m's I had placed inside.

Alright, here goes, my first real post. Okay, I know, I'm a little late to the party, everyone else has been blogging since what? last century? I set up this blog about 11 months ago but never did anything with it. I've decided to finally get going on it. I'm using this space more as a personal diary/place to post pics of my own personal craft/scrapbook/card projects so that I can remember what I've done long after I've given the craft away as a gift. Should someone else glean inspiration from whatever I have posted, then that's gravy. If you do like something I've done, please let me know. A little gratuitous praise never hurt anyone. But for now, its Thanksgiving week and there's not much going on around here so I'm back to playing with my baby bug and waiting on the arrival of my Big E.
