One of those truly wonderful things happened on the 5th, actually two wonderful things. I received a letter from a friend. A real, beautiful handwritten letter that arrived through the post! And as luck would have it day 5’s foundation page was a red envelope so I just switched the red for the one my lovely friend sent and hey presto day 5 was finished.
Don’t you just adore life when it does something like that?
(By the way those elephants on the photo below were on that envelope. Ellie Poo writing paper I do believe. She’s an eco warrior that friend of mine. And they look cute too.)
The 6th was one of those perfect ice cold frosty days when the sun made a statement as it rose into the sky so I popped out to grab the glorious colours of a sunrise. Also, I put the final ingredients into the bowl of Christmas pudding mix and I snapped a photo of Gav as he cut into a delicious fruit loaf he made.
I simply clipped my writing onto the back of the envelope with a cute bulldog clip.
Yesterday was a quiet day all round and I wasn’t inspired to take any photos really. Then for lunch I had a tangerine and I ended up making this layout for the day inspired by memories of eating tangerines when I was a child.
Looking back counts too and I love this little story. Flipping through a 6 x 6 pad I found the great paper with that little house on. That was my background. Next I had to work out how to print onto it. It took a few attempts to get the size and length of the journalling just right.
I marked a corner of the paper so I knew where it printed the text. Then I adhered the 6 x 6 paper right over the text I knew fit and printed it out.
December is beginning to fly……
