My Gift for the staff at school

Every holiday season I try to come up with a small gift that includes a card. This year I bought a very cute rubber stamp set from Hero Arts, Clear Design called Jolly Christmas. I love all the pieces, but especially the reindeer. It gave me the idea for this years gift.I added some organic raisins to the bag. There is a poem that goes with this kind of gift, but it wasn't really the words I was looking for. So I simply added the words, "A Gift From The Holiday Reindeer"

Thanksgiving

I was invited to Greg and Sonya's place for Thanksgiving dinner and although I am a vegetarian there was still things on the menu that I could eat. That is always a pleasant surprise. I had eggplant parmasan and a bunch of roasted vegetables. Other guests brought along some vegetable samosas too. Of course the apple pie and ice cream topped off the meal.

As a gesture of my appreciation I made Thank You tags that I put on each guests plate, but I forgot to take a photo of them! I also made a card for the hosts. I found the idea in an old Paper Crafts magasine.
