Thanksgiving Nails

A couple days ago I painted my nails with fall colors and Thanksgiving turkeys.  I'd never drawn or painted a turkey before, so I wasn't sure that I'd be able to pull it off, but after looking at some other Thanksgiving nails designs that featured turkeys, I figured out that I could do it!  I don't have any nail art brushes, so I used my dotting tools to create the turkeys. I enjoy painting my nails, but I hate waiting for the paint to dry!...more

The Grand Gobbler

 I was looking around online for a Thanksgiving turkey project when I stumbled upon this free felt turkey sewing pattern.  The sewing pattern and instructions are available at This was a quick, easy, and fun project that is perfect for Thanksgiving. I followed the pattern and instructions, but I didn't use the same colors of felt or the same size buttons that the pattern calls for. I also used ribbon instead of fabric for the turkeys bowtie, and I really like the ribbon.  I found it during one of my many trips to Wal-Mart. I purchased the felt from the local fabric store, and I originally intended to use the felt for a quiet book for my daughter, but I haven't gotten around to that yet... Anyhoo, I added my grand gobbler to this year's Thanksgiving wreath....more
