Thankful Project

If your family is anything like mine, you can probably use alot less need, and alot more thankful in your life. So in my house, I decided to start a little Thankful Project. 
Took me about 30 min to whip this up.
I wanted simple, not complicated, and something we'd actually do.

                   

Supplies: twine (Target) / mini clothespins (HL) / tags (Michaels)
In the spirit of being less is more, I used things that I had already lying around the house.

I started out by changing my kitchen chalkboard from Halloween to Thanksgiving.


Then I cut the tags in to little strips, draped the twine, and attached the clothespins and tags to the twine. 
Tada!
Told you it was simple.

                 

                 

In all honesty, we have filled out one strip. The obvious first item: our daughter. I could write her name on every strip and the project would of been accomplished. She's been our best gift this year.

I'm excited to see how this turns out. 
I'm hoping this is a new tradition we'll stick with in the years to come. 
Any one starting new traditions with your family this year?

I have been meaning to get around to write you about this post. I think that this is a great idea and I just might have to steal it for next year!!! I love the chalkboard and those little clothes pins how cute. Also love how you are using what you can of what you already have. This is such a great tradition. It so easy to forget on how much we really do have and what a great way to take time and remember all of the things we are thankful for :)
