Christmas in October - Free Printable I am Thankful for..

This is one of my all time favorite poems, quotes, whatever you want to call it I love it. I originally made this  piece for myself to hang in my hallway where I see it everyday. If you have never seen this quote before, please take a minute to read it because it really does make you think. (If you click on the image it will open larger in another window)

The timing for me to share this is appropriate for my fellow Canadian's as this weekend is our Thanksgiving. I know most of you reading this aren't even thinking about Thanksgiving yet, but you can always Pin it and come back in a month and a half if you want to use it for Thanksgiving decoration.
I do not know if this will be a Christmas gift that I will give  (perhaps to a couple close friends), but I thought you might like it for a significant other or just for yourself like me.

"I am Thankful" was originally printed in the Family Circle magazine in November of 1999 by Nancy J. Carmody. I have taken her article and changed the order slightly so that 'I am alive' appears at the bottom. I have known about this piece for a while but do not know 100% if the version I have is exactly as she wrote it. To be honest with you, I can't find the original source. Also, there are two different spellings of her name, so please forgive me Nancie/Nancy if I used the wrong one :)

I produced this as an 8x10 image in two different colors. I hate to say this, but please use this only for personal use. I love offering free ideas and cheap gifts to everyone but hate when I stumble upon someone making money off it.

To download the image:

  • leave me a comment :) (not required but I really do love to know what you think)
  • right click on the color image you want and select open in a new window or tab
  • on the full size image, right click again and select save as
  • save it to a place on your computer where you can easily find it
  • send it to your favorite photo developer, find a frame and you can cross another Christmas gift off your list.
Here is the red image for download

Here is the teal image for download
If you would like another color or one without the box on the top, leave me a comment and I will try my best to make the changes you want.

What do you think of this? Do you think you will use it for Thanksgiving, Christmas gift or just for yourself?

For all my Canadian readers, have wonderful Happy Thanksgiving and for all my other friends, have a great weekend!

  9. There are several approaches one can take in choosing wedding cake designs, from traditional
    cream or white icing in classical designs to totally modern artistic colorful masterpieces.

    Consider the number of guests attending the wedding ceremony to assist in determining the types of layer and the
    number of levels to have on the cake. But you need to show them off properly.

  10. If you wish to use flowers, glass vases, or candles, albeit with a
    twist, you can think about innovative designs and arrangements to make your reception table
    stand out in the crowd. This lightly colored blue and green leaf colored shade is a dome design with an
    uneven edge flowing edge. The first table will have a
    pink table cloth with blue napkins, while the next has a blue table cloth with pink napkins, and so on and so forth.
