    Your “thankful” art looks great Tara and what a neat keepsake too, to look back and see what you were thankful for in 2013. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and had time to spend with friends and family!!

      Thank you so much, Heather! It is a very cool idea – and thank you for this – to make these annually, just to see exactly what we cherish each year!

      We had a lovely thanksgiving – did you?

      Awww.. thanks, Mel. I probably will. For some reason, the to-dos that are right in front of my face are often the ones I leave ’til last! Why is that?!!?

    Tara, I think I really need a silhouette in my life…seriously. What a fun a project.

      Kelly- YES – yes you do! Let’s get you entering some giveaways (or just give in – like I did – and buy one)! It will change your life!

    Awesome idea! I really love this so much, and it’s not so “fall-y” that you can’t leave it out year round! Great project!

      Thank you, Kirsten! I do love that it’s not too Autumn-ish in scope, because I do think that this will probably stay up until the Christmas decor appears! 😉

    Oh I like that! I should make a thankful art. Lord knows I need to be more grateful! haha, otherwise I’m too busy complaining about how the nearest starbucks is 5 miles away.

      Oh… five miles? I don’t know what that is in Canadian (i.e. metric = km away), but I know that my nearest Starbucks is about 5 minutes away. (Meanwhile, I’m more of a Tim Horton’s girl – so Canadian here…)

      I think that you should just hurry up and get a Silhouette, Kenz. I want to talk shop with you, girl! 🙂

    What a beautiful piece of art that you created and very neat that you designed it in PicMonkey!

      Oh, thank you so much, Jenna! PicMonkey is really something else, I’ve discovered. I’m a bit of an addict!

    I absolutely LOVE your project! I’m pinning it to make for this Thanksgiving season! And you’re welcome to come over for turkey. Gobble gobble.

      I’ll have to come over for some gobble-gobble goodness. Now that our turkey dinner is over until Xmas… *sob!*

      Canadians need to invent a November turkey-fest. Maybe… “We Don’t Have Black Friday So We Eat Turkey To Drown Out Our Sighs Of Disappointment” Day?

      Yes… that’ll do.

    LOVE this! Such a cute idea – one I could even do with the kids and we could each do one! Thanks so much for the DIY!

      Oh yes, Amanda – this would be a fabulous project to do with the kids. I can imagine even having different pictures (maybe one with a turkey silhouette? Or a leaf?) with each family member’s “thankful” words?

      Now I’m getting inspired… hmmm… you may have given me an idea for some Christmas artwork! 🙂

    Love it! And that frame! Details on the frame, please!

      Nicole – I’ll bet you’re loving that stand, right? (The frame is just an Ikea one – super common)

      Yep. Me too. I obsessed over it for a while until finally, I got a gift card from my sister and ended up buying it.

      I bought it from Chapters-Indigo in Canada. It was *gulp!* $50 when I bought it. But honestly, I don’t regret the splurge at all. I get compliments on it almost every time someone new walks in the door.

      Here is the link: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/house-and-home/gifts/frame-easel-stand/882709036432-item.html?ikwsec=HouseAndHome

      Are you in the US? Let me know, and I’ll try to hunt it down for you.

      Thank you, Bethany! I think it’s all of the little moments and little things that I’m so grateful for. (Well, and the people that I live with – they’re mostly awesome, too!)

      Oh, thank you so much, Bronwyn! It was a really simple piece, but I’m so pleased with how it turned out. Like you said, not over-the-top at all.

      Thank you, Melanie! I love that it’s simple. I need to remind myself sometimes that simple is sometimes just as nice as fussy and loud! 🙂

    I love your project. It’s so happy and positive and inspiring. I almost thought that this was in your own handwriting…and then I would be really jealous that you have such perfect handwriting. Your thankful list is so pure and sweet, a great reminder to truly be thankful for the little things.

    Yay! I love decor that can transition smoothly from one holiday to the next. I definitely had our burlap love banner up from Valentine’s Day through September…because love is a year round thing, right? (At least, that what I kept telling myself.) Thankfulness is, too!

    (Also, side-note but the font you used is my favorite font in PicMonkey. You have great taste!)

    Hey Hey, guess who I saw on Craftgawker? I love this printable, and I thought you wrote the background – wow, awesome handwriting! I also like that it’s winter colors, because I’m TERRIBLE with changing decor for the seasons, which means something like this can hang out until….oh…June. 🙂
