A happy Thanksgiving to you!
Butter box journals have been very trendy among online journalists and I have finally found the most apropos subject for the butter-box journal:  my Thanksgiving prep guide!  After all, I use more butter for this meal than I have used all year.

If only my real to-do lists looked this nice all the much more motivating!

I've incorporated the stickers and labels from the meal and included a critical path timeline for Turkey Day activities.  Once an architect, always an architect.  Like Eisenhower planning D-Day, I have given a lot of thought to this plan.  As a result, the beaches at Longears are safe for Freedom and the American Way.  (Remember, I live in Kansas!)

And for those well-intentioned people who want to help, I am holding a turkey feather drawing...on the back of each feather is a last-minute task just waiting for someone to accomplish.
I hope you and yours will have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!


  1. Love the Journal- Perfect! BTW- And the Mackenzie-Childs piece in the background!

  2. I've never heard of a butter box journal-- this is so cool!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Who ever heard of a butter journal??? Genius idea. Love it. I hope you took a photo of your table decoration and can send it to me so I can copy it next year. I am no good at table decoration. But I WANT to be :-)

  4. Oh, Jeanette! This is so fun... Love the 'Test Cocktails' :)

    Also very happy you've included a 'follow this blog' button!!

  5. I don't know what a butter box is but I suppose I can guess. It makes a very lovely journal and I love the feathers. You could ignore whats behind them and just admire them.

  6. I wish my "to-do" lists looked like this too! Such a beautiful journal - I always love your attention to detail and sense of color.

  7. Super cool as they say here!
    Where does one find these online journalists btw?

  8. When I take in the complicated things you're doing. It becomes clear you could be President. It would be effortless for you of this I'm certain.
