Can anyone else believe how fast this holiday season is moving along? Simon and I were laying on his bed the other night, looking at his tree lights and talking about how there are only 8 more days until Santa comes...and only two more days of school. Man I remember how exciting that was as a kid. Nothing better.
The last couple of nights we have been reading some of the short stories from this book: Jan Brett's Christmas Treasury. It is such a fantastic book with amazing illustrations. I ordered it in 2007 after reading a recommendation from Amanda at Soule Mama. She has a great, timeless list of winter reading favorites here. Having these books that only come out once a year (along with the holiday movies) makes them that much more special.
Here's a look at Day 16:
The transparent clock (old Heidi Swapp product - not sure it is available anymore) page is one that I have done for the last three years. This is a good example of one of those products that I do stock-up on - when I have the desire to use it more than once and it is generic enough, I will buy a few to be able to use them in the future. I think this is the last one I have in my stash. I love the contrast of the curve with the rest of the straight edge pages. This year I took a shot of Simon's room and am using that for my story on Day 16.
On the back of the clock I included an image of the Playmobil Nativity Set
that is sitting on his bookshelf:
Here's a close-up look at the image which includes a couple digital products from Designer Digitals: AE Handdrawn Holiday, Katie's Word Strip Labels No.2 (coming soon), and Holiday Twill (coming this weekend to the shop).
On the image of Simon's room I added the word stack from my Handdrawn Holiday collection.
