One of my favorite movies is Dan in Real Life. Call me idealistic, but I always dreamed of having a cabin in the woods, or preferably on the lake, that we’d gather at for the holidays.

In the movie, the families came together for a few days to celebrate and spend their days doing yoga on the lawn, hosting a talent show and my favorite, a competitive crossword puzzle!

That’s what inspired me to create our own Thanksgiving crossword to help create our own traditions. I’m so thrilled to share with you today!

I’m offering a Thanksgiving crossword puzzle this year as a gift from me to you. I hope it helps you make memories with friends and families at this year’s Thanksgiving celebrations!

  1. Great! Can you send me the link for the 2014 crossword puzzle? I assume the answers are available for that one. Such a great idea 🙂

    Thanks again,

  2. I love your activities for the table! Do you have the answers for the crossword puzzle?

    Thank you & you are a talent!

  3. Hello Julie! Oh how I wish you could come help me with my table, you always come up with the most beautiful designs! I am having trouble with the links. The crossword puzzle link just refreshes the page, it doesn’t take me to the puzzle. Also, the thankful cards take me to a wine website? Anyway, I can’t wait to print these! They are darling!

    1. Brittney, my apologies! I have corrected the crossword puzzle & noted that the Thankful For cards are available on Cambria’s blog. Thanks for your patience! I’ve been doing a lot of 5 minute diy centerpieces that you can recreate without fail! I hope you enjoy them. Have a great weekend!
