Its that time of year again.
Orange and red and yellow and golden brown.
Cinnamon and nutmeg and ginger.
Apples and chestnuts and PUMPKINS!

I’m pretty sure that if it was a competition, Autumn would totally win.

Even though I am on the wrong side of the world to call Thanksgiving one of my national holidays, we usually still celebrate it in our house. Every year we spend the day with our good friends Jeremy and Sarah and a gang of other people to celebrate gratitude. It’s so lovely to take a moment from the hustle and bustle of life, sit down and reflect upon all the things in your life that you are truly thankful for.

A few years ago I made a project to take to Thanksgiving Dinner, and it was really fun. I mean REALLY fun. I’m sure there were a few laughter induced tears as we read out the notes that each person had jotted down on their journaling card. Of course there was the usual ‘i am thankful for my wife, my family…’ but there were also a few unique, funny answers too. When I shared that project with you, I gave my viewers a chance to download the journaling card that i had made for the project (click the link at the start of the paragraph if you wanna go get it for yourself).

Last week as I drove along the tree-lined, windy British roads on the way to work, all of a sudden I felt Autumnal. The trees had exploded into vibrant colours and bright, rich leaves floated down through the air, falling like confetti onto the bonnet of the car. It was so beautiful…& I started to get excited.

Thanksgiving is on its way, and before I start thinking about the food side of things I wanted to make a project for the table this year. Once again I designed my own journaling card to use as the basis of the project, one for each person in attendance.

This time I have made a video tutorial which walks through how i made this project, so that you can make one too if you like. Kinda like a free craft class i guess. Also, just like the last time, you can download the journaling card so you can use this on your projects. All you need to do is to click on the sign up tab at the top and become a free member. This will give you access to all the free digital downloadable elements. Be sure to also sign up to our newsletter so that we can let you know when new stuff is available. Also, all newsletter subscribers are automatically entered into any competitions we run on Hungry Heffy Crafts. Great, huh?

Here’s the videos, I had to do them in two parts, and there are some more photos below that so you can see more of the project.
