My friend, Claire, shared a holiday tradition her family enjoys this time of year. They each write down things they are thankful for on strips of paper and insert them anonomously into a box. On Thanksgiving Day one person is elected to read each comment aloud as the rest of the participants guess who was the author.
I really like this idea and decided to make a Gratitude Box for our family. I used a plain white 4x6" recipe box from Close To My Heart and decorated it with leftover scraps from the Olivia paper collection. Stamps used include: A Little Thanks (November Stamp of the Month), and Many Thanks. I used Mocha Opaques to create the faux metal accents.
My six-year-old has already submitted a few things he is thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
