Happy New Year!

2013 NEW YEAR’S BLESSING FOR YOU

May you know and enjoy your power as creator of your reality.

May you feel the support of the whole universe.

May you allow what’s past to be complete, release yourself from fears of the future, and turn toward the richness of the present moment.

May you know yourself and others to be enough.

May you experience the joy of being fully alive.

May you be filled with love.

With love and appreciation,

Hattie

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a profoundly Christian holiday in that it focuses us on the God as the true source of all our blessings. As the hymn-writer said, “All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.”

 

 

It’s also a day for giving.  I thought giving away Paper Cut Turkey’s would be really cool.  These are very easy to make and your friends and family will love them.

 

Paper Cup Turkeys

What you’ll need:

  • Paper or foam cup (8.5 oz)
  • Acrylic paint in fall colors (brown, tan, orange, red, green, yellow, etc.)
  • Large pom-pom for head (brown, yellow, red, orange, etc.)
  • Small foam heart for gobbler (to contrast with color of head)
  • Small foam triangle (orange or yellow)
  • 2 small wiggle eyes
  • 3” x 2” piece of orange construction paper
  • 1 sheet of white construction paper
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors

How to make it:

  1. Place cup upside down on work surface and paint brown (see image).
  2. To make the feathers, paint the white construction paper with several fall colors, crisscrossing the colors as you go. Let dry (see image).
  3. Cut feathers out in one large piece, should be shaped similar to a hand or crown. Cut the tips of each feather into a point (see image).
  4. Apply glue to the bottom portion of the feathers and press onto the bottom of the cup. Hold in place for a minute or so to let the glue grab.
  5. Place foam heart upside down so that the bumps are facing downward. Glue the foam triangle, point down, onto the upside down heart–the upper points of the triangle will be hanging over the edge. This is the beak and gobbler (see image).
  6. Glue the pom-pom to the top of the paper cup.
  7. Glue the wiggle eyes and the beak and gobbler to the head.
  8. Cut two feet from the orange construction paper and glue to the bottom of the cup.

Tips:

  1. Instead of throwing away the paper that you use to protect your work surface from paint, add more color to it to make the feathers!
  2. The feathers can be simplified by using a piece of brown, orange, or red construction paper.
  3. Make these even more fancy by using actual feathers and by writing the name of your dinner guests on a piece of paper and gluing to the front of each turkey.
