WOYWW – Thanksgiving journal…still!


My desk is still in a state as I work further on my Thanksgiving mini.  I am trying to document it … well, I’m not really sure why.  It occurred to me that a lot of the stuff is only in my head, not in the recipe file or written down anyplace and it seemed a good time to try to collect all that up, while in the process of actually preparing for and making the feast.

You can see the cover here on the left, and some of the bits and bobs, but I would suggest hopping back a day or even two to see the progress.  And maybe grab the .png of the menu title cards.  No one has thus far said if they work or not, so maybe one of the WOYWW crowd will have time to give them a go! Here’s one but you can grab the whole set in yesterday’s post.

Happy WOYWW all! Pop over to Julia’s to see all the desks. Kudos to those who manage every desk.  I am in awe of you.

    Your desk is looking great – I will probably only manage a few desks I’m so late…

  8. Since WOYWW has got so big I think I’ve managed everyone once. I don’t know how people do it.

    Love the look of your Thank Giving project and I wanted to say a huge thank you for featuring my Angels on the UKS blog bits the other day. They are one of my projects that are very close to my heart so I got a little buzz when I noticed them on Blog Bits 🙂 (My favourite bit of the home page btw)

    I’ve been watching the progress of this project with interest (and with an eye on my dishwasher powder box). Love the kitchen fonts, and the paper pockets, plus that look back at where you’ve spent Thanksgiving. What a fantastic set of memories you’re putting together. Bernie #11
