I woke up this morning, made some stuffing and a turkey. Then it cooked for three and a half hours.
Thanksgiving Turkey 2011
While it was cooking I got so caught up in the Macy’s Parade and working on wire wrapping that I forgot all about the potatoes, rolls and green beans. Chris took the kids to the playground while I threw them all together. While they were cooking, I made this:
The poem is from an amazing prayer book Morning and Evening by Johann Habermann that you can get for free here or here.
We ate a wonderful meal that I thought about taking pictures of only after it was gone. Everyone laid down for a nap, and I worked on finishing the necklaces I started in the morning. After a quick trip to Michael’s for an amazing easel, we all ate chex mix and popcorn while watching Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving.
After everyone went to bed, I decided to work on a few more necklaces. Here’s everything I made today:
Necklaces I made on Thanksgiving Day
They will be in my Etsy shop soon, and available on Cyber Monday!
(I also started a painting tonight, but all I did was paint a canvas black, so I don’t have a picture of that. I’ll post it when it’s done. I do love my new easel!)
