What are you thankful for??

There is something about Thanksgiving that just excites me!! Not sure if it’s spending time with family, eating such yummy food or if it’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that I look forward to each year!!

This year my husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving at our home…it’s going to be his family and mine! Which should be quite an event! My Mom is bringing her famous Broccoli Salad, my Mother in Law is bringing desserts, and my Sister in Law is bringing the rolls…the rest will be done by us!!! Over the weekend I went to Joann’s and purchased some crafting supplies to decorate the dinner table as well as the buffet tables. You know you will get pictures after the Thanksgiving holiday!! Plus I also purchased a few things for Christmas too! I am really excited to decorate for Christmas this year, thanks to my friend Doug Alves here at Duncan Enterprises who has inspired me! He was featured on our local TV Station showing his amazing holiday talents, tips and decorating ideas…it just got my creative juices flowing!

Check out the Pumpkin Cookie Jar I just finished…isn’t that the most perfect shade for a pumpkin?!?! It’s called Pumpkin Spice, in the Courtyard Art Glaze Family, plus it’s also featured in our Masterpiece in Minutes program! I am pretty sure that I am going to fill it up with delicious pumpkin cookies. It will fit perfectly for the theme on my dessert table!!!

With all of the stress preparing meals and your home, don’t lose sight of the importance of Thanksgiving. I am thankful for my family…what are you thankful for??

Have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Artfully Yours,
Ceramic Diva

Hi Ceramic Diva,

I love your pumpkin!!! The color is awesome!

Your Thanksgiving sounds great.I can't wait to see photos.

I'm getting together with my family and it's been requested that I bring clay! We did a recent family weekend and made ceramic leaves by rolling out the clay, pressing the leaves into the clay and firing them. We added some glazes and they turned out so beautiful. My mom is going to adhere her leaves to canvases for display. Hard telling what we'll come up with this time.

Happy Thanksgiving!
