I’m not very crafty. I wish I was and I have lots of the tools to be crafty. I have stamps and colored paper and fancy designed scissors and a hot glue gun. Every girl (crafty or not) should have a hot glue gun. A hot glue gun to a girl is like a table saw to a guy (only in a much different price range). You don’t use it very often but when you need one, it’s the best thing in the world.
But, if I was crafty, I sooooo would have made this beautiful looking Thankful Tree I saw online. I wish I had seen it earlier in the season then maybe I would have taken the time to make it. Nahhhh – I’m not gonna kid ya. Had I seen it in July I still wouldn’t have made it. I would have forgotten all about it. And then, the day before Thanksgiving, I would have said to myself, “Gee, now what was it again I was going to make that looked like a beautiful centerpiece?” I found this tree over at Craft Gossip who posted it from Simply Vintage Girl. Isn’t it a great idea?
Had I made this tree though, these are the things I would have put on each circle because I am very thankful for each and every one of them. And maybe next year, I’ll get around to making it. Hey, stop laughing, I just might!
