Thankful Am I

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last year I made an Advent candy jar for my kids.  They were able to eat one chocolate a day until Christmas.  I decided to do a little twist on that idea and make a thankful jar.  I stamped the background and leaf onto white address labels then used my printer to print things that I was thankful for.  I then wrapped them around the chocolates.

Here is a picture of the chocolates all dolled up.
