I have a really large window in our dining area, and I thought it would be better to place it there than on the fireplace. This way, we can see it as we're eating dinner (you know, like, once a week).
I thought it needed some "oomph", so I added the "Be Thankful" stream down the middle. In hindsight, it's too long. Next year, I'll probably do "Give Thanks", so it doesn't look so awkward.Some people have asked about the leaves. Did I cut them by hand, did I buy them? I'm almost afraid to tell you. I'm a teacher, remember? We have a die cutting machine at work. It took me a couple of minutes to get about 40 leaves. Don't hate me. :)
I wish I had different versions of leaves, but I was NOT willing to cut them by hand just because I'm weird.
Don't forget to keep checking the links from the "I Can Make That" party! I now have over 100 presents that I have to make. :) Enjoy all those ideas!
