If you're running short on time and want something cute to adorn your Thanksgiving table --- heres a link for some very cute and simple place cards.
A not so simple, but totally adorable "Christmas House." Here's the link --- the lady does the same thing I do (my friend Becky taught me this trick) --- buying "containers" to rip apart and make a pattern out of. Becky made the cutest "ornaments" one year from a template made from a thrift store purchase. Ever after I keep my eyes open for things to rip apart and use as templates.
