Thanksgiving Plate Decoration

I know you are probably in full swing, having your Thanksgiving table already planned and ready to be set.  I wish I could say I was right there with you...but I still have to go grocery shopping and there is NOTHING worse than grocery shopping on the day before Thanksgiving.

So, I may push it off as long as I can and go at midnight tonight or something.  Surely the stores won't be crazy busy then...

In the meantime, I plan to spend the day finishing up my Thanksgiving plates.

You'll remember my crazy obsession with decorating plates lately.  I made a set for Back to School and one for Halloween and now I'm in the process of a set for Thanksgiving.

When I saw this awesome tablecloth from Becca at Blue Cricket Design, I REALLY, REALLY wanted one, but I can't even imagine the time and effort it went in to making such an heirloom.  So I went a little smaller.

I started by making a list of all the things I could think of to be grateful for.
I listed everything from my kids to my parents to personal things such as Koolaid and Red Gummy Bears.

Then, I added each one of those items in a Subway art style to a plate using a Sharpie Marker.  I used different font styles and different directions and different styles.

When I was all done, I baked the plate for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Now I have a unique and personal Thanksgiving plate for my table.
