I loved going through and seeing everyone’s projects linked up to last week’s Dare to DIY! The theme was Be Thankful, and there was tons of great inspiration at the link party of ways to prepare for Thanksgiving and remind yourself and your family to be grateful! Here are 3 of my favorite Thankful projects:
These cookies from Ducks in a Row look delicious, but even better, they are a tradition 9 years strong of baking together with her kids, decorating Thanksgiving-style, and delivering goodies to the people they are thankful for. What a great way to spend time together while spreading some Thanksgiving love! Visit the post HERE to read more and see the tasty recipe.
Mindy from Finding Silver Linings has art skills like WHOA. I don’t even want to think about what my version of Thankful chalkboard art would look like compared to hers. I love how her sign turned out, and what a great quote for this season! Visit her post HERE to see more.
And I love this simple but high-impact Give Thanks sign from Done is Better Than Perfect. It’s the perfect mix of rustic and modern/trendy, don’t you think? And she hand-painted the letters. Like I said, no art skills here. I assumed a Silhouette must have been involved in the making of this sign—nope! It turned out beautifully. Visit her post HERE for more.

I’m keeping it low-key for next week’s theme, but Forrest and I had a good time busting out some paint and making a mess . . . here’s a peek at my project:
