So Grateful – InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled with inspiring projects that share the gratefulness of the season. Whether you are ready to celebrate Thanksgiving this week or just feel reflective of the things that make you thankful, we are sure you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post!

My project for today is a pillow box filled with treats that I’ll put at each table setting for Thanksgiving dinner. The pillow box (die retiring January 4) is embossed with the Woodland embossing folder – a fan favorite (retiring January 4)! I’ve been on a gold kick lately and used it 3 ways on this project: the Early Espresso leaf is embossed in gold, the acorn topper is punched out of gold glimmer paper, and the tiny bow is made with one of my favorites, gold cording, that will also be retiring January 4.

I have so much to be thankful for this year. We welcomed my son, Nolan, on September 11! He joins big sister Lillie and we can’t imagine life without the two of them. Here’s me with my babies:
