Gratitude Tree

For Thanksgiving we decided to add some leaves to my little necklace tree.

The girls painted some packing paper (scrounged from the local health food store) with autumn watercolors. After it was dry, we cut out simple leaf shapes and, using a needle, strung each of them with a bit of thread.

Then we put them all out in a basket for everyone to write on.

This is one of my favorites.

It’s from my father-in-law who is grateful for short grandkids and tall sons. I'm guessing that he was probably just being a goof, but I thought it was rather poetic.

what a fantastic idea- and one I'd like to steal and run with

I'll see if I can get this up and running at work, as well

Where did you get that amazing tree?!?!? Did you make it? I would love to make one with my scroll saw!
Great leaves as well! We did somehting like it on Thanksgiving, but we just strung our leaves up on string and let them dangle around.


And THANKS for the heartburn remedy! I've been experiencing it A LOT lately-RARE for me-and I'm willing to give it a try.
