    I love your articles and I adore the place setting tags, especially the 3 dimensional pumpkins. I love them. I also like the great pictures you add along with your discussions. The article about the salt dough ornaments made me want to find mine.

      And Mom Money Funk leaves her first comment! Score!

      So for those of you that read Money Funk – my mom reads it, too. But she has yet to leave a comment. So I bugged her to leave one and now she has – Yeah! πŸ™‚

      I hope you do find the Santa Salt Dough ornament you made – I’d like to show Matt Jabs and his DFA readers (he is the one that provided the salt dough recipe) how much fun you can have with the simple concoction.

      Totally cute and easy! I saw some using Apples and fruit to hang the place card from the stem. I love the idea, too. Especially because it can be put together in a matter of minutes. One less thing to stress about.

      Glad I could help spark some creativity! Have fun hosting your Thanksgiving day dinner!

      Unfortunately, I am not hosting this year’s Thanksgiving celebrations. So, I will not be able to partake in printing or making this year’s place cards.

      Isn’t that a cute idea? Love them too. And you don’t have to be creative with this one – just buy the kit and presto! You can just tell everyone you whipped them up! πŸ™‚
