Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! 
This is my 1st year having a child (of mine) as an adult. I look forward to her being home for this holiday. It's been an exciting year for her graduating h.s. and going on to college. I've grown as a person from this. O what an experience for the parents. I've learned to trust God in a bigger way for my children. I also see my role as mom a little different too. We are always mentors/mom for the rest of their life but something changes when the child is an adult....

I've been working now for 2 months and haven't had a chance to make anything crafty for Thanksgiving, but have been cleaning and organizing (& reorganizing) alot around the house.

I've also been thinking of extended family. Some I am not in contact with. They are in my thoughts and prayers. It's hard having a broken family, but I'm grateful for my husband's family, for their love and support and acceptance <3

Spider how-to

A styrofoam ball (cut in half outside) with a serrated knife. Glue a circle of black dyed batting to the circle with a glue gun.
 Attach with more glue and a piece of bamboo skewer for good measure. Add faux fur or garland to neck for a natural look.
Make access hose for pipe cleaners with a bamboo skewer. I used tempra paint to add eyes and some quilting thread for the mouth. There is no right or wrong. Just use what you have handy to make yours.
