It’s a Jolly Holiday!

We are so excited about this year’s Christmas theme! We’re celebrating the star of the show. The jolliest guy around. Oh yes, Santa Clause!

Lots of red and white has shown up in our house. And as we prepare for the big guy’s arrival, we’ll be making tons of crafty stuff inspired by his jolly demeanor. There will be gift ideas, printables, and so much more!

So check back all through the month for updates of our how Jolly Holiday is coming together.

See you soon!

Best of November

November was a whirlwind month in our house as we celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new house and with our son. Thankfully, the little guy let us sit down for a nice Thanksgiving dinner while he gazed at our plates longingly from his highchair. Haha! We hope you had a wonderful, gratitude-filled holiday!

I also launched A Stitch of Magic in my Etsy Shop and am loving adding new products. Fulfilling your orders has been extra fun and I appreciate all your support!

DIY Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

‘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.

Thanksgiving Dinner Cooking Planner

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.
