Pumpkin pie. Turkey. Cranberry jelly. It must be Canadian Thanksgiving weekend! Truth be told, I am the only one in my family who loves turkey (I know, what?!?!), so we’re trying something new this weekend. After the family Thanksgiving of course, which I’m hoping will involve turkey.

Thanksgiving this year will involve roast chicken, maple glazed carrots, green beans almondine, cheese scallop potatoes, mashed potatoes for the kidlets and pie. I’m looking forward to it all! And I’m ready with my wheat sheaf and jack-o-lantern pottery and candles. And my Giving Thanks printable of course!

I love bringing this out every year, along with my wheat sheaf. It has become a part of of Fall and Thanksgiving for me. Serious, I love that yellow.

I am thankful for many things this year. The gift of my children and husband. The legacy and blessing of having known and been loved by my loved ones who has passed on this year. The magical path that has opened up to me. Good chocolate.

So many things to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving Canadian friends! Wishing you a weekend filled with family, friends and turkey!

It’s October! The month of Halloween and spooky decor and beautiful Fall foliage and harvest festivals and Creepy Food Week! There is just so much to LOVE about October. It truly is one of my favorite months, seasons, holidays. And I cannot believe it is already here!

My shop has been woefully unprepared for Halloween! So I spent this afternoon making sure my Halloween printable parties are ready to go. I mean, Halloween is just around the corner! And we are especially lucky this year; Halloween falls on a Friday this year!!! Party time friends, Halloween party time!

And finally, my Fang-tastic and Happy Halloween parties are now available in my Scubbly shop! I’m feeling the black, orange, and purple vibe this year, so I wanted to get my Happy Halloween party up for you, just in case you’re going the traditional black and orange route this year too.

I love these two parties. I may just be adding a third one this month, its very bewitching in black and purple, perfect for the tween set. Definitely check back, but in the meantime you will find two perfect Halloween themes ready for instant download!

I’d love to hear about your plans for Halloween this year! I’m on the lookout for a pair of Maleficent horns, let me know if you see some!

The baby elephant with the red balloon is one of our most popular parties! Truth be told, I love it too. There is something about the blue, grey and red and the balloon that is irresistible and I am just honoured and humbled that so many of you feel the same about this sweet little guy. Thank you.

So many of you have emailed me asking if there was a coordinating invitation available for this collection, and for the longest time I just didn’t have one in my Scubbly store that could be instantly downloaded with the rest of the collection. But I’m happy to say, now there is!

It’s the last week of school before Christmas break, so this week is all about making cookies for the class party. We just happen to love snowmen.

making snowmenI’m sure the kidlets will love them! Are you making treats for your kidlets’ class party?

Sometimes I look down while working on my daughter’s afghan and this is what I see.

A very long time. Just over a year and one too many family emergencies/crises behind us. Thank goodness.

I’m back. Not back everyday or five days a week, but back to posting a little bit of crafty goodness as the crafty goodness happens. There will be some little changes around here, some tabs will go missing, printable parties will be moving to instant downloadable versions only, and some will be retired for good. I am moving on from the full-time crafty lifestyle and pursuing my true life purpose. So my little part of the crafty pie is going back to the perfect and lovely hobby that it has always been.

For now, I am crocheting like crazy! I have a rainbow afghan to finish for Christmas.

It’s nice to back. I look forward to sharing crafty goodness with you. Again.

I have a vintage type table full of letterpress type in my garage. But I don’t have any large type like this vintage type from Monki Vintage on Etsy:

I would decorate my mantel for Halloween with large type like this, oh yes I would.
