Giving Thanks ~ Thursday

Giving Thanks

Welcome to the last day of our "Giving Thanks" celebration! We have taken this week to prepare our hearts and homes for this wonderful time of year. I am thankful that so many of you have joined in and shared such special things. My Thanksgiving project, daily cleaning challenge and poem, are located directly below this post, along with Paper Crafting Thursday.

I would love for you to join in the fun! Mr. Linky is available for you to sign and here are some things you could share on your blog:

-What you are thankful for
-Thanksgiving traditions or memories
-Recipes
-Craft Ideas
-Decorating ideas
-Your menu
-Cleaning/Organizing "before" and "after" pictures
-Anything having to do with Thanksgiving!

Everyone who participates and signs Mr. Linky will be entered into a drawing at the end of the week! Go HERE to see the prizes. Each day you participate, your name will be entered into the giveaway drawing. If you participate two days, your name will be entered twice, join us all four days for four entries, etc.

Please read the participating instructions carefully:

1. Write a Thanksgiving post on your blog. Link back to There is No Place Like Home so that others know where to join in. You may use the "Giving Thanks" button located at the top of this post. Go HERE for the picture code.

2. When signing Mr. Linky, link directly to your "Giving Thanks" post and not your homepage URL. People will be looking through these links all week long. If you link to your main page, it will be harder to find your post. Go HERE for instructions on how to do this.

3. In order to make the Mr. Linky list easier to read, please type your first name only and a 1-2 word description. Example: Kelli-Recipe.

We are looking forward to what you have to share!

Kelli-
Not participating today, but I just wanted to say that I tried a tip I got from your blog last night. I mixed baking soda with an essential oil (Jasmine), threw it all over the rugs, and vacuumed. My rugs are soooooooooooooooo nice now, and the whole place smells amazing. Thank you, thank you.

Kelli thanks for being such a great hostess, stop by and visit when you get time I think that your family will love this cookie recipe and you will too... because it is quick and very simple to make.

Kelli you have out done yourself today. The acorn muffins are so cute and I hope to use the Christmas card pattern as a variation to the cup of tea card pattern I have been working on. Thank you.
