Virtual Thanksgiving Potluck

I’m so excited because starting Friday of next week I will officially be on vacation. It has been quite some time since I had a whole week of vacation and I’m really looking forward to it. My husband and I will be going home to spend Thanksgiving with my parents. I’m looking forward to some rest & relaxation away from work and cookies.

This year is special because not only will I be spending time with my family but now through the world wide web I am spending time with my friends too. A few of my closest cookie friends and I got together for a virtual Thanksgiving potluck dinner. We all live in different parts of the country and have never met in person but we’ve become close through chatting online. We thought having a virtual get together would be a great way to share the holiday with each other. So we all signed up for our dish or dishes. Some of the gals made more than one dish. They are so sweet. I brought sweet potato casserole to the party. I made the casserole dish out of stacked cookies. I love how it came out! The top cookie is made using the large square frame cutter from Karen’s cookies. They are wonderful cutters and I recommend that you get them all. You can find them here.

Look at all the wonderful food and flowers we have at our potluck!
Thanksgiving Menu:

2. Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy & Project Name — The Cookie Puzzle

It was fun getting together with you ladies. You all hold a special place in my heart. To those that made our dinner complete by making more than one dish I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You helped make this all come together so nicely.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Take the time to stop and think of all the things you are thankful for this year. I may pop in with a post or two during my vacation but if not Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy creating!

Your sweet potato casserole came out perfectly and looks so elegant! Fantastic job. My niece, Nicole, is a huge fan of sweet potato casserole with lots of marshmallows on top. She and my mom always make it together as part of our Thanksgiving meal. Thanks for putting all this together! You’re such a wonderful friend Melissa and I’m so thankful for you!
