Welcome to Day Nineteen!
Today’s story includes a little of the calm and a little of the merry chaos of the season (and of my everyday life).
Page one includes a quote from my Christmas Quotes Vol. 1 package and “calm” from my Painted Christmas word set. I stitched around the edge before adhering the photo to the cardstock back of day 18. On the weekends we all take a little quiet time when Anna has her afternoon nap. I’m currently reading (and definitely into) Fall of Giants by Ken Follett.
Photo taken with a timer.
Page two is the merry chaos.
I should probably say “mostly merry chaos.”
Nothing quite like The Wiggles to cause some merriment for these two.
I repeated the red stitching and Painted Christmas word. Journaling was done with my typewriter.
JOURNALING : It is the rhythm of most days. Part calm and part crazy and merry. Quiet and so very loud. I actually love both in my heart of hearts, but it is those quiet moments that I find myself wishing for most often. And then I remind myself not to wish away the glorious loud of now.
