Note: Not to mislead you. Germans totally appreciate a yummy meal. Even my godson, who now over 20, still loves to come for Turkey Day. And especially the sweet potatoes. This, a kid who when he was little, would not eat anything green (as in, vegetable). Once when we were babysitting him he projectiled his baby food spinach across our living room!
This year we are 14 people. We have an open kitchen/dining area and although dinner is buffet style, I usually make placecards. (Because I like to pre-arrange the seating but mostly cuz it's an excuse to make something creative!)
So I challenged myself - as if in addition to a turkey and ham and all the other sides given the small ovens we have over here I needed another challenge (breathe, Maria) - to play some challenges with my placecards. My XXS placecards, I should say. Warning: went a bit non-traditional with my colors this year.
This was a "morning of" photo. If I remember to take a shot of the set table I'll post it later...
Which challenges did I play?
CAS(E) This Sketch #6 although I flipped it and shrinky dinked it.
Paper Crafts Connection - November gallery challenge to use decorative tape. I'd intended to stamp the strip behind the focal image, but then remembered my red/white striped washi. And the whole time I was struggling with how I was going to hang them on the wine glasses... Duh! Use washi tape and stick'em on the water glasses. There are still a couple under-agers and they don't get wine glasses anyhow. And it fits my non-traditional take on Turkey Day this year too!
Washi = Love.
Hope you enjoyed your (holiday) weekend. As you read this I'm likely stuffing myself...
