I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about Thanksgiving itself, but this year I’m going to take some inspiration from one of Prima Marketing’s newest transfer collections and practice gratitude for the entire fall season.
On Wednesday I posted about the tree that came down in our yard and how thankful we were that nothing else was damaged, no one got hurt, and the entire mess was cleaned up before 9 a.m. by some tree guys that were already in the neighborhood.
Just the other day I mentioned to Mr. Q how blessed I am to have my sister and niece living nearby now. For those of you who might be new here, my sister got married and moved away to New Jersey when I was 18 years old. We didn’t live in the same state for over 30 years until she and my niece moved here to Minnesota 4 years ago.
Now I can’t even imagine them not living here. We have so much fun together. How did I ever get by without them for so many years?
I regularly give thanks for my neighbor/handyman Ken too. Never more so than this past week as we’ve been working on a little home improvement project together. I’m going to share it next Wednesday, so be sure to check back for that.
I also feel incredibly lucky that Prima Marketing chose me to be a member of their design team.
It’s so fun to get a sneak peek at the designs each time they come out with a new release, which brings me to today’s quick and easy project.
I started with a pile of vintage plates and platters.
Then I pulled out one of Prima’s newest transfer collections called Thankful Autumn. This collection will be available to purchase on September 15. You can find a retailer near you, or an online source for Prima’s transfers here.
Then I just cut out the various designs and added them to the plates.
A quick q tip for you: when working with the transfers over glass (or china in this case) be forewarned that they stick like mad to these surfaces. As soon as that transfer touches the surface, it is stuck there. So be sure you get your placement right before allowing contact.
I was a little off on this next one.
But the sentiment is still there. Even if it’s a little wonky, there’s no place like home sweet home.
