I’ve been pretty absent from this olde blog for a while now…I’ve been too busy making! Making Christmas gifts, making things for my shoppe, and making plans!
But, I thought I would take a wee break and share something that I’m pretty happy about…
My 2015 Holiday mini journal! You see, every year I toss around the idea about whether or not to make a Holiday journal. Sometimes I make one, and sometimes I don’t. This year, it was a yes.
I knew I wanted to go small, so I set about looking through my art room for a likely candidate. I had completely forgotten about this little book, it was literally falling part at the seams!
It’s probably from the 30’s, the pages are so super delicate! I am going to adhere these pieces to card stock to preserve them before I use them.
In my book, the Holidays start with Thanksgiving, so what a great way to begin this journal. Luckily, I took a few photos over the weekend to start out. It had snowed, so it was a beautiful drive!
As if I didn’t have enough to do, I decided to work on two list challenges this month. I figured there may be days I don’t do anything Holiday related to journal about, and thought It would be nice to mix things up a bit.
It had snowed at my daughter’s house and her yard looked gorgeous! This was my grandson’s first thanksgiving, I managed to get one photo of him not moving.
On the last day of our visit, my daughter and I made Christmas cards. Something that has become a Thanksgiving tradition for us.
That is what I love most about this time of the year, enjoying all the family traditions, old and new! It’s just getting harder to fit them all in to one month!
I have lots of fun stuff to play with, so I bought this cute box from Michael’s to store it all in. I didn’t decorate it this way, but I sure am inspired by it! It looks like a cross between a Victorian and Mid-Century Christmas to me, I may have to run with it!
I will probably be posting primarily Christmas related posts this month. I have so many plans that that is all I will be doing! So, consider yourself forewarned!
Until next time,
Have a great day,
Talk to you soon,
