Before I jump in another day in my december daily album I wanted to share a few things.
#1. If you are just joining me here on the blog, welcome. Nice to have you. I was so shocked yesterday to see that Becky Higgins had said something on facebook about my blog ! Thank you all for coming and for your nice comments. They mean a lot.
#2. For the newbies, if you are interested in knowing how I print on the journaling cards. Check out the Tutorials. Click Tutorials under LABELS on the top right side. I explain how to do it in photoshop.
#3. The sweet mailman delivered my little "White Box" yesterday and as he was leaving he said Merry Christmas. It sure will be now. I was so excited. I want to start using it. But I still have to finish this year ! Ha Ha.
#4. I chose to go with Clementine this year. I was looking for a little bit of a change - although the turquoise might be my all time favorite. The colors are sooooo pretty. I am loving them. The blues and the greys and yellows are my favorite colors right now. I went through it all today and was so excited to get started. Again - reality set in that I still need to finish this year. So it will have to wait until I get caught up.
Now on to Day 6 of my december daily album. This day was all about what we call "Shoe Day". Or in Germany it is called St. Nicholas day. My mother is German and she kept this tradition going with us kids and I am keeping it going with my own kids. You put your shoes out on the night of the fifth and St. Nicholas comes and fills them with sweets and a gift or two. My kids love this tradition and always get their shoes out extra early.
Here is the first page
This is a picture of Noah's room and his shoes. I created a pocket using the picture and put extra journaling in their.
I added an extra page. If my book gets too full I will add these 4X6's to my Project Life album. The brush is from Ali Edwards holiday word art vol. 3.
Other side of extra page. St.Nicholas brought them a play house that they can color.
Here is the last page. Used an Ali Edwards December Daily template. Picture is of Maddie coloring her house.
That is it for day 6. Until next time.
