November 29: Gift Card Slide-ins

Dear Friends-
Sorry. I just couldn't make it happen. I love the countdown idea for Pebbles, but with my daughter Lindsey's wedding and then I was so blessed to enjoy my sister Becky for 10 days, I just couldn't do it all. A good lesson for all of us. We can't do or have it all. I use to think we could, but get real, it doesn't begin to be possible, at least not in my world. I do take a look at some of my favorite blogs and find myself wondering how they seem to keep their lives so balance when mine has constant starts and stops. I guess the magic word here is "seem". I think I am in a bit of a funk today, maybe because it is freezing cold outside and I am wearing thin socks. Maybe it is because it's Monday and I so desperately want to be bundled up in a warm blanket on a soft couch until spring or until I wake up on my own without an alarm clock. Sounds good doesn't it?
Hope your day is going good... the day after a funky day is usually better :)

Here is my November 29 Idea:
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these. EVERYONE knows how hard it is to find the perfect gift for the people you love. In the end, a gift card is the perfect gift, but they sure don't feel very personal to give... until now! At Pebbles, we have plenty of gift card die cut shapes for everyone on your list!
Give them the gift they want in a thoughtful way! Creative ideas are found in stores and kits are also available online here.

November 14: Turkey Puppet

I believe my Grandson Conrad could make anything and I would think it's the best thing in the world. I LOVE any craft is created from hand prints... they are the ones I save through the years for too soon small hand prints turn into bigger ones (but I save those too!) Find these at Pebbles in my Pocket or online here. Enjoy your Sunday!

November 12: Turkey Nut Cup

Turkey Nut Cups are so fun and easy to make. Each person can write down their favorite things they are thankful for on the feathers. Fill with your favorite treat and you are good to go for a Thanksgiving treat or place setting, for the whole family or a special kids table. Truth be told, we use to fill up our creative store samples with candy. We quickly learned that we would out-of-control-eat-it-all. We have filled many with peanuts, and they aren't quite so tempting :) It's Friday. Have a wonderful weekend! You can find the nut cups here.

November 10: Thankful Tree Leaves

My first favorite idea are the thankful tree leaves that are perfect for a centerpiece on your table. Write your name on one side of the leaf and what you are grateful for on the other side. Hang with natural twine on a tree branch... I pruned my daughter Ashlee's tree and secured the branches in a jar with little pebbles. This idea is simple, affordable and most importantly, it gets you to count your blessings... start filling up your tree today! I hope you enjoyed your day,
