Thanksgiving 2 weeks away? Get out of town!

Seriously, Thanksgiving is really only 2 weeks away? I can hardly believe it! Although I am still in disbelief I am going to go with it and get ready for it!

Luckily my Stampin' Up club met last Thursday night and we created a couple of beautiful cards and a mint container to put on the Thanksgiving plates.
These of course are all supplies from Stampin' Up. I love this stamp set that includes the tiny little acorn, the lovely fall leaves and the Gratitude stamp and the cool flower on the left.We also made this little sour cream container that holds a couple big Wintergreen Lifesavers. I am going to make these for our plates on Thanksgiving (more to come on that) I swear to you that these are so easy you don't even need pictures! These little guys take 1 piece of scrapbooking paper 4 1/4" X 2 3/4". For a quick tutorial go here.
I also plan on making a little plate of these cuties again this year to put out for pre-dinner snacks. I found this cute idea at Jen's Lipstick and Laundry blog last fall. Another very super easy thing to make.
You need mini vanilla wafers, Hershey Kisses and chocolate frosting. Unwrap the kiss dab a little frosting on it and stick it to the bottom of the vanilla wafer. You then dab a bit of frosting on the tip of your knife and dab on the cookie to look like a stem! Cute project to get the kids involved with too!!!!

The crisp air, the raindrops, thoughts of getting together with family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some of the reasons I am so in love with Fall!!!!!
Hope you too are getting ready for the upcoming Holiday Season!
Hope you are having a great week too!
Happy Veterans Day!
