December Daily® 2017 | Day 14

Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 14. 

Enjoying the process over and here and what feels like a calm before the storm of next week as we get closer and closer to Christmas Day and the kids get out of school. I'm looking forward to having them all here for parts of next week so we can do some of those traditionally fun activities like decorating cookies. I'm also looking forward to having both the girls here at the same time so they can work on their December Daily® Kids albums. Their approach won't be daily (obviously) - I'm treating more as a fun activity for them to do when school is out. I'll share more when that happens. 

As always, thank you for being part of this community and sharing this adventure with me. 

Here's what Day 14 looked like in my Foundation Pages

And here's the story in my album: 

I decided to just use one of the plastic diamonds today and will likely include others in future stories. You can hear much more about that in the video below. 

My story today is about what we do when the kids are with their other parents and I decided to create lines on my sewing machine to hold my journaling. 

The sewing machine I use is a Brother XL2600i. It's been a great machine for me. 

Here's a look at the components outside the album:

      I feel like we are the last family on earth that hasn’t gotten into Netflix or any streaming TV.

      petrac - We don't have Netflix or streaming tv or anything over in our house, either. We have a small television (by today's standards; it's a 32-inch and was an upgrade from my 13-inch tv/VCR (!) combo that refused to die after 19 years) that gets turned on once or twice a week for pizza/movie night.

    My day 14 is about a silly mishap at work. Tired people do weird things!
