Hi there!

It's almost Thanksgiving! I can't believe how fast the holidays are approaching! I've been a little crafty over the last few weeks. I made some Thankful cards.

I'm working on a Gratitude book for the month of November. I love when people do Project Life but I can't imagine trying to keep up with that project everyday for a year. Love that people do though!

My book club ~ Booktini  had a craft day last Saturday. Booktini consists of a group of smart, funny, beautiful girls who love to read, enjoy a cocktail and crafting. This is our second craft day and I'm sure we'll have more to come. 

Here are some of the crafts that were made.

We have some talented crafters in our group : ) From left to right we have Susie, who showed everyone how to make this super cute wine tag. You could also use it for many other gift ideas like lotion or hand sanitizer, etc. Our fearless leader Rochelle, had a jar decorating craft. How cute is that jar?! We made cute match box covers with Yoli and last but not least, we made an adorable gift card holder/card with Pam who is the Cricut expert!

I bit the bullet and purchased a Silhouette Cameo! I keep hearing about the amazing things that little machine can do and I can't wait to start playing with it. I am a little intimidated by it but thank goodness for YouTube! I got a great deal on that included $120 in free cuts! It is a pre-order so I can't wait for it's arrival.

And finally, I placed a very small order with Technique Tuesday. Right now they are in the middle of their progressive sale. Today is the last day for 50% off. Starting tomorrow, whatever is left is 60% off! YES 60% off. I'll have to take a look tomorrow to see if I need anything else! lol!

I'm off of work this week so I can't wait to get crafty with these new goodies!

Have a beautiful, blessed Thanksgiving : )

Be crafty!



  1. Yay Renee! I love it! Next craft day will be at my house....what is a gratitude book?

    1. Thanks Rochelle : )
      My gratitude book is a decorated journal (like a Smash book). I'm journaling one thing a day for the month of November that I am grateful for.

  2. I love it Renee! I too want to host a craft day when life is a little less hectic! I need to get back into my blog as well!

    1. Thanks Pam. Can't wait to see your blog : )

  3. You've been busy!!! Looks like you had a great time on Craft day. Can't wait to see what you make with your Cameo :D

    1. I think you might get your Cameo before mine arrives!
