December 13: I attended cutie niece's ballet recital and it was adorable! At only an hour in length, the recital was very well organised and made the most of audience and little dancers' attention spans. :) The 'making spirits bright' was word art from Ali Edwards' Storytelling with December Daily class which I cut with my Silhouette. I love the effect!
December 14: The making and writing of Christmas cards. On the left I used a phone photo of me writing on a card, added a snippet of handwritten journaling directly on the photo. The overlay, printed onto white cardstock, provides a great space for adding a little embellishment. On the right I included an extra card, adhering closed using dimensional adhesive on the bottom and right sides. That created a pocket in which I could slip a copy of my Mum's Christmas letter.
I didn't included the letter with my cards but I did help write it - editor-in-chief here - and I like including this snapshot of their/our year. I stamped a title onto a large label sticker which I turned over the top edge of the letter. Two wood veneer stars were inked with gold ink and glued back to back, on either side of the label.
I finished Day 15 last night (a no photo spread that I'll photograph and share soon) but next I want to spend some time fully writing out the rest of the stories I want to tell.
