Thanks for making my day by SHARING!!
As promised, I’m back with my final Fall and/or Thanksgiving table adornment.
I started with a fringed linen tablecloth and napkins, followed it up with needle felted acorn napkin rings, and then with my centerpiece. This final installment, my fall and Thanksgiving Place Cards is a result of my recent foray into calligraphy and general doodle-ing.
I purchased two of Lindsey Bugbees’s instructional calligraphy kits recently and have just begun learning calligraphy. I’m still a little rough, but I feel her instructionals have been very helpful. All I need to do is devote more time to practice, which just hasn’t been in the cards of late.
All this to say, bear in mind I’m a newbie at this skill and don’t judge Lindsey’s instructional kits by my beginner calligraphy skills. But, I am enjoying learning this new skill as it’s been on my ‘crafting bucket list’ for some time now. It feels good to learn a new thing.

I am sure there is other software out there that will let you scan a document and manipulate the image, but all I know is PhotoShop Elements. In addition to the Acorn Place cards, I did this one which is just a bunch of leaves and acorns. If your schedule doesn’t allow for you to start this project now, I’ve attached PDFs for both sets of place cards for your use.
I know Thanksgiving is a month away, but it’s good to get started on your projects. So many of Thanksgiving-ish things can be worked into your fall decorating now anyway.
