Giving Thanks ~ Wednesday

Giving Thanks

Welcome to the third day of our "Giving Thanks" celebration! We are taking this week (Monday-Thursday) to prepare our hearts and homes for this wonderful time of year. My Thanksgiving project, daily cleaning challenge and poem, are located directly below this post.

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!

It looks like the Mr. Linky website is down right now. Hopefully it will be up soon, but in the meantime, please leave your link in the comments and I will add it later.

Another great craft idea! Koodos! When I get to the decluttering of my den and recover my desk/sewing machine/quilting area I think I'll give it a try. Of course, that may be this time next year but oh well :)
Thanks Kelli!

I just love everything you do! You inspire me so much! I'm housekeeping challenged and work at it all the time to be better. I love how everything looks so nice and uncluttered and pretty!

I really like the leaf and acorns you made. I was trying to think of something I could take to my sister when I go to her house for Thanksgiving and that is perfect! Thanks for sharing this idea!

God bless you ~ Julie

Hi Kelli, I did a post earlier today on Thanksgiving recipes and then realized you were hosting this great event, and linked up! I enjoyed your post and the fabric acorn placecards below, were super cute! You come up with the best ideas! What a blessing! ~Rhonda :)

Carol E. said...
