Every Thanksgiving I make a small token for each person as a reminder the year. In the past I have made:
This year I made Thankfulness cups. I bough 99 cent IKEA mugs and an oil sharpie pen. On one side of all the cups it says Thankfulness, the other side has a quote unique to the person. Auberne`-Cuppa, my mother-cup runneth over, my sis-start your day, Chloe-shimmy for, hubby a mug full and me-Hem Your Blessings, You draw on the mug, set them on a cookie sheet and put the cups in a cold oven. Then turn on oven to 350, let the cups sit for 1 hour. Then turn off the oven and then let the cups sit in the oven another 1/2 hour. That is it and a perfect Thanksgiving keepsake!
