Mae’s Crafty Creations

A Special Blog Hop of Thanks!!!


Welcome to our Blog Hop!!!  Shirley's 2 Girls and the design team wanted to do a little more than share our weekly inspiration projects. We are giving thanks this week to all of our participants and visitors with a Thanksgiving Hop! You'll travel to each DT's blog to view her inspirational project for this week's challenge. There will be all kinds of tips, tricks, and tutorials along the way! Also, there is a grand prize and four of the DT members have a hidden prize. In order to qualify for a prize, you need to leave a comment about what you are thankful for on the DT's blogs. If you have arrived from Laurel's blog you are on the right path...if not hop on over to Ann's blog to begin your journey.

I am thankful for the girls giving me this opportunity to be a part of their design team.  I work with a great group of ladies and am having a blast.  I am also thankful for the daily inspiration I get each and every day for all of you.  Visiting your blogs daily keeps the creative juices flowing and teaches me a ton.  I have enjoyed different tutorials on how to make different projects from Splitcoaststampers and various YouTube videos.  By watching videos on copics, I have learned a ton.  Thank you Suzanne!!!  The amount of sharing is wonderful and all that is asked is recognition for their work.  Who could ask for more!

My project is a small thank you gift for someone special.  This lil girl giving a great big ole hug is so sweet.  I used some spellbinder dies for the decorative edges.  I need to increase my collection of dp.  I just couldn't find the right fit to match the flowers on the package of scents.  One can always use more dp...right?!!

The beads are a part of my football apparel.  Purple and gold are my son's high school colors and they make a great showcase peace.  Tomorrow night is his last game.  He did great last week and received a "player of the week" t-shirt.  Hard to believe that next season is his senior year..but if he attends the University of Washington I can still wear the beads.  Same colors!!!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to leave you comments on each of the DT's blogs.  You never know who will win.  It could be you!  Now hop on over to Melissa's blog.  Have a wonderful weekend & THANK YOU!

awww! This is so sweet! I remember when my little girl was this age and would give me leg hugs. Miss those days! She is taller than me now. :-)

This image, and your card, is so adorable. I'm thankful for my memories of when my kids were that age and the spontaneous hugs they would give. Well... they still do some 30 yrs later and I'm thankful for that too. :)
