I gave it all up to raise my little guy who is now my inspiration for my business and behind the name "Lil' Buckaroo Designs". I truly believe that my past experiences both personally and professionaly have lead me to this and I hope you are able to see the passion in my work.

FREE PRINTABLE-Thanksgiving Gift Tags

 I thought it would be fun to kick off the first day of Thanksgiving week with a 
FREE printable copy of the Thanksgiving Gift Tags from my Be Blessed Thanksgiving Collection 
(which by the way I just put on sale for a HUGE discount - $9.00 for the ENTIRE package!) 
that you can download and use this week.  

These tags are perfect - I think anyway - to use to dress up say a hostess gift if you are so lucky as to NOT be the one cooking this year or add to cardstock to make thank you note to someone deserving or even as part of your Thanksgiving table set out at each place setting.  
A new twist on brown baggin' the alcohol!  Wrap up a bottle of wine with craft paper, tie with ribbon and add one of my FREE Thanksgiving gift tags and you will have something EASY and FESTIVE to bring to your Thanksgiving host!

However you choose to use them and IF you even want to use them,  I just wanted YOU to know this is a small gift from me to you to say THANK YOU for supporting and following me and Lil' Buckaroo Designs.  

I may not hear from many of you, but the comments that some of you do leave and the emails and Facebook messages others of you have sent me all reassure me and let me know I'm not just writing to the crickets (which yes I do often wonder if anyone is out there, laugh!!)  Taking time out of your day to check in to see what I am up to is HUGE and you need to know I don't take it for granted.  It means the world to me and I really appreciate YOU!  I feel very lucky to be given the opportunity to TRY to live out a passion of mine and work toward making what I LOVE to do be what I DO for a job (okay maybe I haven't quite built a new career YET- but I really am trying!)  

And thanks to my honey too because without his support I would have no chance at all to take a stab at this-so thank you BABE!!
And yes honey, I KNOW, you are going to KILL me for posting a picture of you, but I can't help it!  I think you are HOT and really I DO owe you big time for allowing me to stay home with Jake and for being so supportive of a wife that doesn't SLEEP!!  Love you!

Okay, once again I have rambled on way more than I planned and once again I got myself WAY off track-I promise I will try to work on that!  

So, how do you download your FREE copy of the Be Blessed Thanksgiving Gift Tags Printable?
Easy...just click here or you can find it at the top of my blog too!

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving Week!!

  3. Hey Vinny-I clicked on the link to the left of my page where I have the "mini" version of Scribd and it took me to the pdf file on Scribd. I clicked download and it worked! Not sure why you are having issues-hopefully it will work if you try it my way.
