Unfinished Business.

20141202_030705Meet my December daily book Рfrom 2012.  I managed to complete December 1 and December 2. Back when I started the journal, I was focused on documenting what was going on in our lives through photos, journaling and standard scrapbooking elements. Now that I have been doing a bit more in terms of papercraft and other forms of visual art, I am excited about expanding the types of things I am going to include. Stay tuned.

Getting ready for December

Can you believe that Nablopomo is coming to an end? I have had such a great learning experience that I have decided to continue with the posts, though I will most likely take one or both weekend days off. I feel like the challenge of creating content on a daily basis has really helped me in my writing.

One batch down,

And one to go. Today has been one of those days when I feel like more than one day has taken place. One of my card batches is just about done and then I have one more to complete. Then it is on to dinner and our other adventures.
Yesterday I learned that I need to be more aware and appreciative of the people who help me. I thought I had learned that lesson, but I found myself learning it again. Sigh.

Day 322: Three Way Hug.

hugMy youngest son, Max, inherited the hugging gene from my family. I have half a hugging gene, but he has one and a half hugging genes. He loves a hug and will not hesitate to get one if he feels he needs one (or if he sees someone get one and decides he needs one). I think he got his enthusiasm for hugs from my mother, who is a world-class hugger. She really loves people and Max has that same love. I had just given him a hug in the kitchen, when my husband came by complaining about the cold. I motioned for him to come and get a hug. He rushed over and Max came back. It was a really sweet moment.
