Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Ten.
How’s it going?
I looked at the calendar today and can’t believe how fast the month is flying. Trying to slow myself down and savor it all a little more.
The cold streak continues here, the snow hasn’t melted and the kids are still home from school. They’ve been pretty good finding things to do during the day while I work. There’s been lots of lego and playing in their own rooms and arguments and books and friendly banter mixed-in (I even saw some leapfrog in the upstairs hall yesterday). I actually like that they are getting time to just “be” in their rooms and play. They played out in the snow for a bit on the first day (last Friday) and a little bit yesterday but overall it’s just really, really cold and they’d rather play inside. In the evenings we’ve been having a fire in the fireplace and watching holiday movies. On Monday night they saw It’s A Wonderful Life for the first time.
I’m trying not to wish this time away.
Here’s a look at Day Ten:
Today I put together a spread featuring an enlarged photo of our Christmas Tree during the day. I’ve been wanting to play around with confetti inside a pocket so I went ahead and added that into the main photo pocket (more details below).
On the left-side of the spread I paired the wood pattern paper with a metal circle embellishment from Tim Holtz, a wood veneer star and a small metallic gold star stapled in place. The journaling card talks about our fake tree and how I feel about it this year.
On top of the photo I added a 6×8 2013 date overlay before printing the photo. “Joyful” is from the Magical Adhesive Banner set. Inside the page protector and on top of the photo I added Magical Sequin Stars, sequins & a wood veneer E & paper stars from the December Daily™ kit, and wood veneer stars.
These are all loose inside the pocket. After I add my content for tomorrow (the other side of the page protector) I’ll stitch across the top to close off the pocket.
