Happy Thanksgiving!

Warmest wishes to you and your family on this Thanksgiving Day 2014! I know I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I have had several opportunities to spend time with family and friends this year and I am especially grateful for that.
The most recent family event was at my niece's wedding in blustery MN. It snowed every day, and it was bitter cold, but none of us minded because we were having such a great time! (Well, ok, we minded a little!). Early this year I went up to MN to teach my niece and sister how to use a stencil and Black Matte Embossing Paste to decorate vases for the table decorations and favors for her fall-themed wedding. They caught on quickly and ended up making 130 of these beauties! Everyone was thrilled to take them home after the reception.

You could still see through to everyone at the table

Guest book table looked great too!

Now we will enjoy them on our Thanksgiving table!

By the way, the Dream Team are very THANKFUL when our followers are THOUGHTFUL enough to leave us a nice comment on our posts! Here's the "B" team lineup for this week, as well as our very special guest designer, Linda Neff!

Thanks for all the beautiful pix of the tables and wedding! They look wonderful and not so hard to do either...but more than 100 would definitely be a huge project! Wow!

The vases are so pretty! Thank you for sharing them. I would like to see Dreamweaver come out with more stencils. Are they planning to soon?
