This month on the cross-Canada blog hop we are focusing on what we are thankful/grateful for. The list is HUGE. On Thanksgiving day our church had a worship service, as part of that service we were given leaves with lines on them cut from paper in lovely fall colours. As part of the service, we were to write on them some of what we are thankful for and then walk to the front of the sanctuary and place them on a 'tree' of thanksgiving. This process was very meaningful to me, I did not share what I had written on the leaf, but it got me thinking in a more thankful way and trying to remember all the things I am thankful for.

This afternoon our family gathered to celebrate our Thanksgiving dinner, I had cut out leaves using our Cricut cartridges and had each member present to write what they were thankful for. I then took all the leaves and placed them on my Thankful wreath that I created earlier today.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Michelle of mycreationswithmichelle.
