Abundantly Thankful Monthly Craft Craze #2

Find more napkin photos on Facebook.
A quick tutorial before the party:
Plain napkins play dress up for Thanksgiving. They call to us to notice the blessings and abundance around us. This can be a very quick, no-sew project {but I couldn't help myself and had to add stitching}. 
  1. Print images on colorfast computer fabric (sponsor resource here); pull a few leaves off a fake bush. 
  2. Apply fusible webbing to these elements, and iron them on your napkin. 
  3. Finish up with a little button to embellish.  
My stated intent on Day One of I Gotta Create!:  put a little more joy, humor, beauty and good will out there. So I give you the "Abundant Thanks" Linky Party. Share your creations symbolizing abundance, fall, harvest, gratitude, or thanksgiving. Grab the button on my sidebar and spread the word so that others can join in and see your contribution to the cornucopia. 

  1. Link up to three projects*... afterall, the party lasts three weeks. 
  2. Grab the button and link back to I Gotta Create! on your post or somewhere on your blog.
  3. Consider following or subscribing to I Gotta Create!
  4. Share your love! Comment on a few of the creations you see at the party.
Grab this button on the sidebar to spread the word and then link up!
To spread the gratitude, I'll feature one gorgeous project per week, so join in any time! {*Remember: Link directly to your post, not just your blog. Link all 3 now or come back and link one per week.}  Want to see the Halloween party highlights? A link will be activated here as of October 30th. All projects can be seen here.


You're Up! 












Next Linky Party:  It's a Winter Wonderland of amazing creations... when YOU link up!  I will likely start this party early because, really, we're all thinkin' about and gearing up for the holidays! Follow me to keep up-to-date on the start time.

Christina at I Gotta Create! said...

Hi Jenny! Please post anything that relates to Fall, Abundance, Gratitude, Thanksgiving, Harvest...any themes along those lines are Very Welcome! It doesn't have to be an overt thing ... anything you feel symbolizes those types of ideas. Thanks for asking!

hi Christina - thank you so much for the email reminder! I love visiting you and adore your projects. I'm hoping my projects fit your theme somewhat. But it they don't it's ok to delete them, I'll totally understand. take care, Diane

Christina at I Gotta Create! said...

Thanks, Diane. It's sweet of you to check about that. I'm flexible, except that Halloween will be over in a couple of days so those projects should not go in this party. =)
