A Basket of Thankfulness – Thanksgiving Activity 2018

Hello everyone! Happy November!

Welcome to Smile and Craft AG’s third annual Basket of Thankfulness activity!

A Basket of Thankfulness 2018

Here is a link to view the ones from 2017 and 2016!

I love Thanksgiving; it is probably my favorite holiday! I love hosting these activities each year and seeing the many things that you all are thankful for! It’s such a blessing to me, and I hope to you as well!

So, let’s get into it!

What is A Basket of Thankfulness?

In case you weren’t here last year, or if you forgot, A Basket of Thankfulness is an activity that occurs each November to inspire us to be thankful. The process is simple: you comment with a list (or just one thing is OK too!) of things you are thankful for, and on Thanksgiving day I publish a post with a big compilation of all of the things we thought of over November!


What are the Rules?

  • Comment below with things you are thankful for. You can comment with as few or as many things you want! However, make sure you are thoughtful about the things you comment. Don’t just write down everything that’s sitting on your desk at the moment.
  • Then, on Thanksgiving day, I will compile and post all the things we’ve listed (without repeats) and put them in a big numbered list of things we’re thankful for! I will also list the contributors. 🙂
  • Please note, if I, and/or my mom, decide that anything posted is inappropriate or against our convictions, we can remove any item commented from the list.

Also, please spread the word about this activity–I would really appreciate it! Let’s make a list bigger than ever, and grow in thankfulness in the process!


So, what are you thankful for?



Have a blessed day!
