Pretty Cute Stamps Blog Hop Time!!!!

Hey beautiful crafters!!! 

 It's that time again! I can't believe it is already Thanksgiving & Christmas planning time! UGH I'm behind, I think. 

If you are ready to get started on your Thanksgiving and Christmas cards & projects you are in the right place. We have an incredible blog hop going on and if you just happened upon my blog you'll want to start at the beginning over at the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog. If you got here from Kendra's Awesome Blog then you are in the right place. ;)

Each stop along the way is featuring the October NEW releases of the adorable and Pretty Cute Stamps you see here!

Well to get Thanksgiving (and the month of November) kicked off to a good start I made a little gift for my kiddos.

"The 6 days of giving"


Now you may be wondering why 6 days? I just made it up. I was going for 10 but then I realized a few of the ideas that I gave the kids would last more than a day. Each envelope includes a service our family can do for someone else or another family. They include hand written notes that pertain to the saying on the outside.

Gobble Gobble- "Create an entire meal for a family in need"
Thankful for YOU- "Write a letter and tell someone how grateful you are for them and why"
Happy Turkey Day- "Show your appreciation and share the Thanksgiving spirit by creating a home decor item for a nursing home or the Children's Hospital" (some of you may know that our baby boy spent some time in the Children's hospital last year. Our family has a new found appreciation for the volunteers there.)
You're such a Turkey!- "Be sure to make someone laugh today. Play, Enjoy, and be Grateful!"
Gobble 'til you wobble- "Make a desert for a family in need (brownies, cookies etc)"
Happy Thanksgiving- "Offer services to a family in need. Think raking leaves, doing dishes, vacuuming the house, etc." 

Now of course you can alter these to suit your family and ages of those offering service but these will work wonderfully for our family! 

To make everything in this set I used the Turkey Time Stamp set.

The blog candy for this hop is a $15 Gift Certificate to the PCS Store.

  10. Hey Raven!! I love your turkey mailbox. Can you please share how you created that mailbox. My brother is hosting a thanksgiving dinner for his students and I think this would be perfect for his students to write letters for their family members. Your suggestions are amazing too. Nicely done.
