Shop Small Saturday is coming up soon, and I want to remind you to support small businesses this holiday season. Every year, Thanksgiving weekend is flanked by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, nestled right in between the two insane days of spending is Shop Small Saturday, which aims to encourage you to put your hard earned money toward local and handmade companies. And why not? Shopping at small businesses puts money right into the hands of your neighbors, crazy talented artisans, and people living out their dreams.
Are you a little unsure how to support the small business owners in your life?
‘Tis the season to be thankful! When I made the new Halloween sign for over our fireplace, I knew I wanted to make one for Thanksgiving as well. I used the same technique but instead, I wanted to go for a raw, minimalist design.
A simple Cricut design and some spray paint brought this sign to life. Don’t have a Cricut? Don’t worry! You can easily make this sign using templates from a craft store (or ones you make yourself!) or large stickers.
This project cost me less than $20 and only took 30 minutes. Yes! You read that right. Looking for a quick, last-minute project for Thanksgiving? This is the one for you!
Follow the tutorial below and you’ll be done in no time.
I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving Day is always filled with chaos. Fun chaos. But chaos nonetheless. With the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade playing in the background, I take to the kitchen prepared to tackle the day’s feast.
I carefully lay out all the ingredients for the delicious dishes (grouping them by recipe, of course) and then take a deep breath.
How am I going to get this all done? Efficiently would be nice.
Inevitably, my kitchen is covered in post-it notes reminding me when to put a dish in and when, oh, and at the right temperature. And wait… did those go in together? Or did I want to cook them separately? Shoot.
To wrangle all the chaos, I’ve created a simple printable chart. Click the links below to download.
