Thinking About Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving-GravyIt’s so hard to believe but Thanksgiving is only a week away. We had a late start to Autumn here on Long Island. The Autumn leaves are just starting to hit their peak and, while I am already hearing reports of snow from folks in other parts of the country, we are just starting to get a nip in the air. Truth be told, it feels more like October than the end of November but my calendar assures me that it’s time to break out the turkey and cranberry sauce.

In the past, I’ve made a bread cornucopia for a Thanksgiving table centerpiece and filled it with sliced veggies and dip. This year, if I can find the time, I think I will make these adorable pumpkin rolls and assorted breads and use the cornucopia as a holiday bread basket. Either way, it’s been a bit of a long year for me and I am looking forward to having a nice holiday meal with my family. Soon it will be time to talk about Black Friday – Small Business Saturday – Cyber Monday and all of the holiday madness that comes before Christmas arrives but this week, but for now, I want to enjoy the holiday we have in front of us, instead of skipping ahead to Christmas.

If you haven’t heard, I am having a Thanksgiving Giveaway and will be giving out a $25 gift card to my Etsy shop. To enter, go to this post on my Facebook page and share a photo or a poem or a piece of artwork, anything that expresses what you are giving thanks for this year.  Entries are due by midnight tomorrow and a winner will be randomly chosen the day after.

And on Friday, I am having my Annual Thanksgiving Sale. Every year on the Friday before Black Friday, I say “thank you” to all my wonderful customers and friends who support and encourage me with an exclusive 40% discount on everything in my shop.  Available only to the folks who have signed up for my mailing list, this sale is my biggest event of the year and a great opportunity to pick up a little holiday treat for yourself or get wonderful holiday gifts for all the book lovers on your shopping list.  My Thanksgiving Sale is a one-day event and the coupon code for it is going out in this week’s newsletter so don’t miss out! If you haven’t already, please sign up for my newsletter and then be sure to visit my Etsy shop on Friday, November 21st.

To help get into the holiday spirit, I have put together this Thanksgiving themed treasury.  Enjoy!
