Banana Bread & a Handmade Apron for National Tie One On Day

About five years ago, EllynAnne Geisel, Apron Expert, collector, speaker and author, launched National Tie One On Day as a way to put the "give" back into Thanksgiving.  The tradition suggests wrapping a baked goodie in an apron with a note of encouragement and gifting it to a neighbor experiencing a rough patch.

A little birdie told me about a woman in my community who's really struggling with her wayward son so I baked this banana bread (yeah, it's from a box but it's GOOD):

...Wrapped it in this apron I made:

...And tucked in a personal note.  I'm excited about delivering it to her next Tuesday.

National Tie One On Day is really spreading.  I've caught it and hope you will too!

November 30th is right around the corner so hurry and leave a comment on this blog or any of my November blogs for a chance to win this month's giveaway.  The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win - yay!
