This past month has been a roller coaster of emotions for our family full of sorrow, joy, heartache, hope and everything in between. It’s also put Life into perspective, making me think: What is really important in my life? This simple question is what inspired me to come up with the free download/printable for this month: The Gratitude Garland.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that! With scissors, a permanent marker or pen, glue, tape or whatever you have on hand to hold it together, and a string like object of your choosing, you’ve got a super cute and meaningful craft! One that is perfect for all ages – my kids didn’t want to stop coming up with ‘blessings’ to write down. (And yes, my daughter wrote down she was thankful for Santa. 😉 )
Can’t wait to start making your own? Just click on the links to download the pdf files that you want, to begin creating your own personal or family Gratitude Garland:
I hope we can all take the time to count our blessings! And what better way than to have a daily visual reminder of what we treasure most in our lives. Here’s wishing you a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
(ps- I just wanted to also thank all of you for the huge positive response to my Halloween Tic Tac Labels! All of you made me feel like a rock star, so Thank You! xoxo)
