download free template here for thank you gift tags by five and one

This Thanksgiving season offer the gift of thanks by making a homemade treat or buy something lovingly made locally.  I created a gift tag for you to download and print by painting a leaf from our backyard and pressing it on paper to use as a simple gift tag for a hostess gift or for anyone that you would like to give a special thank you to.  Click on the link above and print the template on off-white card stock for best quality.  Cut out the tags and either use a hole punch and twine or tape to your gift for giving.

The kids loved planting and watching these pumpkins completely take over our garden this summer and now we are enjoying the harvest in some very tasty recipes!   We found this Australian heirloom pumpkin squash from Bakers Creek Heirloom seeds.

I used this recipe for fresh pumpkin butter from Oh She Glows using our fresh pumpkin squash and sweetened it with the brown sugar she mentions instead of sucanat and used vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract.  Very Tasty!

Enjoy and give thanks to the ones you love!
