My whole family is going to go to see my sister in Massachusetts for Thanksgiving next month. We will have 8 children ages 8 years to 6 months, so we can have a bona fide kids table! I have always thought that the kids tables decorations I've seen in Pottery Barn catalogs and Martha Stewart and Family Fun magazines are great, but sometimes it hasn't seemed worth the hassle for just my kids. So I've been thinking of what I could make to bring with me. Last night, this is what I made:
I had seen a similar matchbook on the A Muse News blog (see it here). I thought these would be perfect for little hands. The kids can write or draw pictures inside on the pages. I love these so much, I have decided to make my older two children "Wish List" matchbooks for the Christmas holidays this year!
In other news, my very *first* Card of the Week was featured in the A Muse Newsletter on Friday. I was so excited! If you don't receive the newsletter and would like to click here to find out how to sign up. Also, don't forget about sending in your Cards for a Cause before the end of the month. You'll be eligible for a random prize drawing - good stuff for stampers!
