Free table place cards for Thanksgiving!

 It's the first time in 6 years that my husband and I are in our native New England for Thanksgiving! (We spent three in England and then three more in California). Growing up in Massachusetts, we were used to the cold weather of late fall, when you are not sure if it's winter yet, where there are still leaves on the ground and it's cold enough to snow. Where you can watch Macy's Day Parade and not have to think about the time difference. Above all, though, is getting to be with family. (We do love the years with our siblings on the west coast, too!!)

So, in honor of being at home here for Thanksgiving, here is a free pattern I created a couple of years ago (see below). Just save the image to your computer, print it out and follow the directions!

Happy Thanksgiving!

late Christmas post

Another out of season post! Well, better late than never. 

This is my 2013 Christmas card illustration, sorry I didn't post it sooner. I have been pretty busy the last couple of months, getting illustrations done for a book (yay!) and also getting ready to welcome a baby into the world (YAY!)
