Howdy Pilgrim!

    Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness. It's an occasion spent in the warm and loving company of family and friends, remembering, cherishing and being thankful! Which is all well and good, but we all know the main event on Thanksgiving is the MEAL! So before you give your family the bird — you know, the one loaded with sleep-inducing fixins — set the stage with my invites and place cards.

    New & fresh from the Creating Keepsakes Convention, I whipped up these fun & easy paper projects in less time than it takes the fellas to fall asleep in front of the football game! Let's talk turkey! While these invites extend the promise of goodwill, the place cards ensure good behavior and favorable mingling.
