Happy Thanksgiving

Hello from Yooper Trails.  The days don’t pass any slower, do they? Here we are on the back side of November. I’m sure you are all busy preparing for Thanksgiving. May your day be filled with family and friends. Here’s my first step.

I have been tackling the finishing of a lot of projects for the Elf Shelf at the Troy High School this Saturday, November 25. It is so easy to get things punched, but the finishing seems to pile up. I did this Santa and reindeer from a pattern from The Simple Quiet. You can visit Rebecca’s website by clicking on the name above. I mounted the piece on a chair back, using Tinker Toys for balance.


These little pouches are from Doreen Frost.

Aren’t they lovely? She is such a talented artist.



These cookie cutters from an Indiana antique store found new life.

Reduce, reuse and recycle.


This little guy, a freebie doodle from Ginger Jackson, Prairie Moon Primitives, will be the project for my next class at the end of the month. I think he will be well received.


Thank you for stopping by. Come again.
