Happy Harvest

I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a few days away! We normally participate in a large family gathering, eat until we're stuffed, play football or redneck horshoes, play board games, and laugh, laugh, laugh. This year is going to be different. This year it will just be Tom, Bonnie, and me with our daughter, Kati, coming over. Kati & I have big plans to create a 3D Christmas Village for displaying in our homes using lots of cut files from the Silhouette store. I'm excited about it! I've never created a 3D Christmas Village out of paper before, so I told Kati it's possible we'll get tons done, or it's possible I'll get so frustrated it will all end up in the trash. Either way, Kati is coming over to craft with me, and I'm excited about that!! But I digress... let's get on to my project for today.
