Fabulous Thanksgiving ideas featuring YOU

Thanks SO much for the moving well-wishes.  I think I now have most of my boxes unpacked, and I am now battling the ongoing task of organization!  Plus there is plenty of space to decorate--something I am not quite used to!  But slowly we are getting things put away and our house is feeling like a home!
I am LOVING all of the fabulous ideas linked up to my Thanksgiving Feast.  Not only is it fun for me to come see your blogs, but I am really and truly inspired!  I am finding so many ideas that I want to copycat next year or modify in some way soon!  
One of my favorite bloggers ever, Tammy from She Wears Flowers, created this amazing cloth thankful book!!  Sometimes we have to teach our kids what to be thankful for, right?!  I love how personalized this little book is, and it's sure to please the kids!
Today's Fabulous Finds created this gorgeous framed Thanksgiving subway art.  I LOVE those burlap flowers!  You can find lots of colors choices... plus, she turned them into cards, too.  (Janet also has a great Christmas giveaway going on!)
Wouldn't this be a lovely addition to any Thanksgiving table?!  My friend Michele from The Scrap Shoppe created this stunning pumpkin vase.  You have to read the whole story in her post.  She is hilarious, and always teaches me something new!
You know how passionate I am for a good learning activity!  Heather from Mommy's Little Helper shares all kinds of turkey-themed activities!  I actually browse her blog each time I create my units.  I love the flannel board stories she shares plus this cute count the feathers on the turkeys activity!

Although I am slightly afraid of chopping off a finger, I have always wanted a jigsaw.  Especially after seeing this adorable jigsaw turkey at Next 2 Nothing Crafts.  I love all of the patterns on the feathers, and that turkey face is just too cute!

Hurry!  It's not too late to have your kids make pine cone turkeys like these ones from A Pumpkin and a Princess!  These would be fun to add as Thanksgiving favors or as a learning craft.  

Is there anything that Allison can't make with a toilet paper tube?!  My friend from A Glimpse Inside designed this whole turkey using t.p. tubes!  Love that lil' gobbler!

This is one of my favorite ideas yet!  Cleverly Inspired keeps a thankful book for her family.  Every year, they bring out the thankful book, and she urges her kids to write down what they are thankful for.  I love this family keepsake!  You can add to it each year and see what you wrote in years past!  
Oh, the talented Bev from Flamingo Toes!  She constantly inspires.  It can be a challenge to keep the kids entertained at the Thanksgiving table, but these chalk placemats are sure to keep the kiddos busy!  They can actually draw on the placemats to show what they are thankful for!
One final idea for your Thanksgiving table:  How about these clever turkey napkin rings??  Darling!  These come from Houseful of Handmade.  This would be a fun way to involve your kids in setting the table!
I am still visiting blogs and will spotlight some more ideas soon.  You can still link up at our Thanksgiving Feast link party!  Come join in with your own juicy addition!

    Thanks so much, I never would have thought that after a week of having my blog I would be featured twice. I can't believe people like my crazy ideas. My sister gave me the black shelf that she got from someone for free, I really scored on it!
