Welcome friends. I love decorating and having friends over and when they do come I want everything to look nice. I want to be a good hostess so my friends will be comfortable and enjoy their stay. ( After all it is a crazy full house with 5 kids!)
I used leftover scraps and these die cut pumpkins from Creative Cuts. ( http://creativecutsandmore.com/
) I misted them with Moon Glow and drew the lines and stem with a marker. I covered the entire thing with glossy accents and microbeads. I used different diecuts (cardstock & chipboard) and they look the same but the cardstock die cuts were more flexable and the chipboard was more sturdy.
A close up...
I made this basket after reading this post on another blog. I loved what they said about hospitality,
"As Christians we are admonished to "practice hospitality" – to be "given over" to it (Romans 12:13; I Timothy 5:10). Our homes should be filled with warmth, generosity and hospitality toward others. It should be an inviting haven where people see the Gospel played out in our daily lives. The phrase, "make them feel at home", means just that: make them feel just like they would if they were at their own home!"
This is what I put in my basket, but the possiblilites are endless. A friend of mine likes to stay at hotels and loves teas so I had the hotel put a basket full of teas in her as a surprize! It made her day!
