A Runner of Thanks

Update: Since I have several questions concerning the chalkcloth, I should have told you to start that I purchased this through Etsy, specifically through Modern June.  She has a lot of great products.

I know, I know, so much Thanksgiving?  I guess I feel like I need to get it out of system and then start planning for Christmas!

I bought this runner months ago, it is simply a piece of chalkboard fabric cut in a unique shape.  I have used in for some time because I like the simplicity of them.  While I was putting together all of my Thanksgiving stuff, I realized it would make a great place to write what we are thankful for.  This is stuff me and my sister wrote, but I am going to continue to ask people to fill it out and it should be really full by Thanksgiving!  Here it is…
