DIY:: Leaf Place Cards

 These leaf place cards are some of my favorites to create this time of year, when setting my fall tables... Being able to set your table around creativity is always a must!! 

 These leaf place cards are easy to make. Choose your colors for your table, with Behr paint swatches. I was inspired by a leaf that I found in a parking lot!(I know its the small things). I traced the leaf pattern on to the swatch, placing it with the color variation that I wanted. Then I cut from there..Write the name and you have yourself the perfect color leaf!!

These are the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table..

Thanksgiving Table:: "Be Thankful"

Is it really that time of the year again? Man did this year fly by!  I can't believe we are getting ready for the Holidays.. There is just something about setting the table in my home that makes me giddy this time of year.  I love pulling out pieces that I don't get to use that often and getting creative.

 My first table of the season was inspired by warmer tones and natural elements. It all started with these gold toned napkin rings from my mother- n-law and birch wood candle holders.  When prepping a table I like to start with mt inspiration, then build from there. I also love setting the table with a simple white plates and then piling on texture and details. With this setting, I brought in pumpkins and natural elements with wood candle holders, antlers, and flowers for that pop of color. I also used a simple white wrapping paper in the center of the table to add a layer.

I placed cards on every place setting, that read "Be Thankful" for guest to write what they are Thankful for on back. These were done with black card stock from Hobby Lobby.

Also place cards where made in the shape of leaves, which I will share the DIY in another post for these fun Holiday place cards....

I hope you are inspired to go set the table for the Holidays. It's always nice to dress up your table and entertain!!!

Coffee & Words:: 5 Areas Of Focus

Doing what I love brings me joy on a daily. I thought I would take the time to share with all of you, the five areas of focus in my life, that help me to give it my best.

What's Important-
Taking the time on a daily to make a list and prioritize, and know what comes first even if it has to be listed from most important to least important. This has been an area in my busy life that I am constantly working on. Focusing on what's important in our lives and not what everyone else is doing allows us to be more productive.

Quiet time with God-
Taking the time to pray, and read the word each day, helps to clear your mind of distractions and allows a closeness with God.  Opening up a simple daily devotional, pulling up the bible app on your phone and just reading a few verses a day, and letting the words speak to you throughout your day.  

Passion & Purpose-
Focusing on our passion and purpose in life should be one of our ultimate goals, and sometimes, it is easy to base that off of what the person next door is doing, or what our friends think we should be doing. In reality we have to seek what we have a love for and just go with it. A lot of times what we are passionate about allows us to seek our purpose in life.

Do You-
Take the time for you, even if it's giving yourself a time out; away from work, being mom, being wife or even friends and just "do you" I mean sometimes unplugging and reflecting on you is very important and allows us to find  what's within. Completely being yourself and not seeking approval from everyone around you.

Be Creative-
Think outside the box and be creative even if its setting the table for dinner two days out of the week or just leaving a card on your husbands car while he's at work saying, "I LOVE YOU" or just simply getting crafty with some projects around your home. Be creative and Be inspired to do the things that make you smile.
