Be Thankful blog hop.

I love the holiday season! It is a time for family, friends and togetherness. I have so much to be thankful for. A loving husband who supports and cares for his family more than any man I know, and I am lucky he chose me. He is currently deployed and we cannot wait until he is home. I am also very thankful to my friends and family, they have been such a life support, shoulder to cry on and a great group of people to laugh uncontrollably with.  And of course my three beautiful boys, they are my everything. I feel truly bleesed to have so many great people in my life.
For my project I decided to make a wreath. I thought it would be fun to incorporate something our family says to each other.


 I took a 17" straw wreath and covered it with fall colored fabrics. I then added the cute little turkey from Create a Critter and the saying gobble gobble, which is what my family says to each other. It is our little tradition.

We do this every year and there is nothing more special than sharing love.

Colleen said...

what a cute wreath. Thanks for sharing it.
Our family tradition is to run between two sides and over eat. I would love to create some different traditions however where we get to slow down and enjoy the time and each other.

Thanks for the chance to follow your blog! I absolutely love that wreath!! Our family tradition is to simply meet at my mom's house and have dinner together. It gets kind of hectic as our children are grown and now there are grandchildren and the family is so much larger but we love it!!

Kelly said...

Love your wreath!! I know you posted you covered it with fabric, but I'm a little slow this morning.. how did you cover it?? It is soooo stinkin' cute!! Thanks for sharing! For Thanksgiving our tradition is to go to my parents house and eat with the rest of the family and draw names for Christmas :)

Trisha said...

I just became a follower. I love your wreath. God bless you and your family as you are waiting for your husband to return. Our son has been in the Navy for 25 years and we have been there, and done that. Hard to list a tradition for my family as they are all over the country, but I guess it would be calling everyone to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving.

Ashley said...

That is an absolutely beautiful project - and I especially love the sentiment! It is hard to describe our Thanksgiving traditions as my husband works retail - meaning Black Friday has made it a bit difficult for us to make plans with our families and to see everyone on that day! However, this year we're going to try having a Thanksgiving-themed brunch with his family in the morning so that my husband can have some of the "trimmings" before he sleeps the rest of the day - so that might become a Thanksgiving tradition if it works! :) I am now a follower and thank you for the project and giveaway!

I am thankful to have found your blog. I am a new follower.

Every Thanksgiving, I curl up on the couch and watch the Macy's parade... then we go to my parents' for an early dinner... after that, it's off to my in-law's for a post-hunting dinner. I love spending that time with our families.

Stephanie said...

Each blog I hop too just makes my heart glow more and more. The creativity, the love the respect for the craft, the thankfulness. What a great project! Our tradition- a Gratitude Tree. It's just a tree made with some branches from the yard and the family writes something they are thankful for and hangs a leaf. Our lives have had a hectic year and we didn't do it last year, but I am pulling it out today.
thanks and many blessings to you!

Khristen said...

Happily following! That is such an adorable wreath! The only tradition we really have is to get together with others. It might be my family, it might be hubby's, and one year, it was a close friend of ours when our parents were out of town. I like to be around those I love dearly for Thanksgiving, as one thing I am thankful for is friends and family. :)

Love this wreath, what a great idea. My family is spread out so our tradition is to connect on the phone every Thanksgiving morning to wish love & happiness for the day. Actually we do this often. Love your blog and I am a follower, suz.p@comcast.net

Jillian said...

During the holiday season the ladies get together and make xmas wreaths!!! We have so much fun, though I inevitably burn myself with the hot glue gun every year. Never thought to make a wreath like this one, thanks so much for the inspiration!

Anonymous said...

A family tradition I grew up with was making a wish on the turkey wishbone. Two kids would hold either "leg" of the wishbone, make a wish, then pull. The one with the largest piece when it broke got the wish granted. millruncrafts@yahoo.com

New follower here! Your wreath is so cute. One tradition that my family has is to spend a few minutes at Thanksgiving dinner sharing what we're thankful for. It has to be something thoughtful. We've done this for as long as I can remember.

I love the gobble! It is sooo appropriate since uur family tradition is for me to sing a song I learned in pre-school called Gobble Gobble Fat Turkey! I am now 40 with kids of my own but we still sing it!! It's a scream!

Hello! I'm a new follower and found you through Pinky! This wreath is amazing! I love it! I hope your husband returns home soon. Our traditions for Thanksgiving are pretty simple- my husband always works that evening, and my extended family is out of state. So we have Thanksgiving lunch instead of dinner so my husband can be with us. Then it's football time! It works for us! xOxo

RissyLouToYou said...

Yikes... there the Create a Critter is again. Okay, I am thankful for the family tradition of baking pies together (developed as we grew older to replace the sticking of black olives on our fingers). This tradition helped foster learning about reading recipes, measuring, planning for the number of pieces to be eaten.. oh those math skills we learned plus all the fun of making messes. This carried over from grade school to adulthood for my sisters, brother and several sets of cousins.

lindagk23 said...

Your wreath is so cute! I'm a follower! I am thankful for my husband! We don't have any traditions for Thanksgiving - it depends if we stay close to home or visit my family. My family lives in Virginia and his family lives here in Ohio.

Idle Hands said...

I'm so thankful for my family. One of the traditions we have is that all of the "kids" on my husbands side meet at his mother's for Thanksgiving. We pass around a wooden cube and say what we are thankful for. We doe this until we've said everything we can think of or until the smell of dinner drives us crazy. So touching yet fun!

That wreath is just so cute.

We don't have Thanksgiving, but our Christmas tradition is to have someone sitting by the tree handing out gifts one at a time. How annoying as children to have to watch Nan open yet another toiletry set while we waited for our toys!! lol

You can contact me through my blog. Send me a comment with your e-mail address and I'll reply to you without publishing to keep your address private. Can't be too careful nowadays! xx

Love your site and I am a follower. I am thankful for family, friends and all my many blessings. Since my family is usually away at Thanksgiving, I spend a quiet day with my three cats. Well, maybe not quiet.

Denise said...

What an amazing wreath!!! I wish I was creative enough to make one, lol. Our family tradition while we are about to eat our big feast, is to go around the table and say one thing we are thankful for. (One thing makes it easier for the kids to participate.) I write them down as they say it on a strip of paper and put it into a thanksgiving lunchbox tin I made a few years ago. Then we reread all the comments we said in the past years.

Stephanie said...

Thanksgiving is about family and friends and other than everyone getting together and having a HUGE turkey dinner, there are no other traditions that I can think of. Wonder if sleeping through football games counts? lol

dupontpig24 said...

I have been a follower from day 1. My dearest family tradition is when my son, who is a Sgt. in the USMC, is deployed, my daughter-in-law and I talk everyday. This helps both of us feel closer to her husband and my son. We also wear something special every day that he is gone. This time we have a necklace with his name. It may sound crazy, but we both feel that this is our part of keeping him safe. He has been to Iraq twice and is now in route to Afghan for the second time. I thank God for keeping him safe and sending him back home to us. It is very special to have a daughter-in-law that doesn't mind sharing her husband with his mother. She is very special to me and I love you so much Rachel. Your wreath is spectacular and shows the time and effort you put into this project. Thank you.

I am so thankful for the family I am blessed with. :)

Domestic Goddess said...

I love that your family says gobble gobble to each other. Our traditions with Thanksgiving are mostly centered around the food: what we eat and who cooks each thing. We have brought foods in from both sides of the family and some friends along the way. It makes us thing of each one as we make them then enjoy eating the tasty foods!

Scrapendipity said...

Since my kids have grown and gone with families of their own, I don't get to do the traditions I loved when the kids were little. We never missed a Black Friday sale and always started our Christmas baking the weekend of Thanksgiving. I still make the whole big traditional turkey dinner even for just me and hubs though. I love doing that!

what a great wreath. Our thanksgivings are kind of sad, we lost 2 people in our family on the weeks of thanksgiving. In order to make it a happier time I have started the day after thanksgiving going to a christmas tree farm and getting garland and we come back home and decorate our front door with grapeleafs and garland berries etc. it makes the holidays and our door so festive. gumby_71463@yahoo.com what great prizes you are offering thanks so much.

I became a follower and so glad I did! Great blog. Love your wreath because it incorporates fabric! It is hunting season during Thanksgiving so we celebrate after the fact. This year though Thanksgiving is on my fathers b-day so it will be extra special.

I am a follower now, I am very Thankful I found you via the hop!! My favorite Thanksgiving tradition for my family is a simple one, we are a retired Military family and when we retired we moved back to my Home Town, We are obligated to eat Christmas Dinner with my extended family (100+ members of it) so Thanksgiving we do at home, I cook a full blown huge meal, it is a low key leisurely affair and we have a fabulous day hanging out at home and being together and it is just me and my immediate family!

I am thinking your wreath is going to become a cherished family tradition! The one tradition my husband and I have inherited, is making an Applesauce cake for Thanksgiving. We also make three small ones - one each for his brother, his father and ourselves in case their are no leftovers. This is a tradition that started with his great-grandmother, then his grandmother, his mother and now us (I do most of it, but he helps me with the icing that has to be stirred and stirred until it is "just right").
You have a wonderful attitude about your husband being deployed. I am thankful for him and others like him who are keeping our country free.

LOVE your wreath!! Great project!

My family writes down something that they are thankful for each day leading up to Thanksgiving, and we make a chain out of it and use it to decorate at Christmas. It reminds us to be thankful for our family, even when we might not "like" them. :-)

I became a follower as well! Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy!

A tradition that my family had when I was younger was every Thanksgiving all of us kids would get together and make turkeys out of apples, gumdrop candies, mini marshmallows and toothpicks. It was funny to see what creations the littlest kids would come up with.

Tracy Brown said...

Hello -
I am now a follower and I have to say I love this project. It also brought back a lot of memories from my younger years of crafting when Fabric Wreaths were popular and I made a ton of them. I haven't done them in a long time. Thanks for sharing. I am blog hopping with my daughter tonight she is 9 and she loved the turkey. One of our family traditions that I love the most is that we all get together at my parents house and have a sit down dinner together turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and etc and then all complain afterwords about how we ate to much. Simple tradition but one I love.
