Gobble Till You Wobble

The first stage, fine marker. I saw this saying on good ole Pinterest. Love that site. I did mostly Halloween projects last year, it was fun to do these Thanksgiving ones. It seems Thanksgiving tends to be left alone. I love the holiday. I miss the big holiday dinners that we had when I was growing up. I know we will have those again one day, I do have four kids after all. Multiply that and it equals big family. Yay!

I added the watercolor pencils. I like this art type. I like acrylic paints but need more practice.

The final product. I love it. It looks good with the other wall decor I did today.

Turkey Dance

My dancing turkey art for Thanksgiving. I don’t have a lot of Thanksgiving art to hang, decided to make my own. This is the drawing with fine marker.

The next stage, coloring with watercolor pencils. I am still learning the technique and enjoy the outcome.

The stage of adding water. I think it turned out good. I’m getting better at applying the water. I use to add to much water and then it would run. Progress!

Last stage, added a fun saying. It is now on my wall, on to the next project. Happy Sunday!

Gobble, gobble was yummy!

My Thanksgiving Day was really nice. My daughter had the big dinner and all four kids were together. I know that may not happen each year on the day it is suppose to but we will get together on some day in November. One must keep the family going strong and being together cause life goes way to fast to not spend a little time with each other. She even invited over three other soldiers that could not make it home which made it even more fun. Her boyfriend had his two nephews and they kept hubby and I rather busy. It was fun. I think I better get into better shape before my kids start having grandbabies because I was tired. LOL, but we enjoyed it.

We can not get enough turkey so we made a small one for us on Saturday with the two younger boys. Yum. Hubby did not get to make one last year because of being overseas so he was determined that he was making one. We feasted all weekend on turkey. I suppose we will make one more come Christmas time. Funny that the stores have them all year but we never think to make one except during the holiday time. We have had eight pumpkin pies in the last week, now that we make them from the can and not from the freezer, we are going crazy making them.

We did get our Christmas tree up this weekend. So far the cats have not destroyed it. We have the water bottle handy and ready to aim! They do not like that! LOL…

I did a little bit of shopping but I am one of those down to the last minute shoppers. I try to get organized but it just doesn’t work. I am a bit ahead of the game this year. I did some online Thanksgiving morning and snagged a couple gifts. I did go with the daughter and oldest son to Thanksgiving shopping that evening, but I didn’t buy anything. It was fun just to watch the other crazies and to help the daughter man the cart. It was our first time shopping, usually we are working. It was interesting. Gonna have to try it again.
