  1. You gotta admit that Santa's are pretty scary with all that facial hair...my boy use to scream when we'd take him to get his pics taken...LOVE the layout and look at cutie pie brookie:)

  4. I know what you mean about the freaking out at Santa thing. DD was Ok the first year and then last year was the first time she was truly Ok again. I even have one photo with her standing in front of Santa and my hand coming in at the side to hold hers!!!!
    Love all the traditional papers you used.

  8. Oh my goodness Brookie is a doll!! Awesome LO. Since I don't work much over the next week and a half I think I might try and play along with some challenges. This sketch is perfect. LOVE your LO!!

    ps I'm still a little afraid of Santa (heck and any other character dressed in costume; especially clowns) Eeeek, did I just admit that???

  31. Hi Julie! Oh my gosh, I'm a little behind here.. I'm sorry. But having read your previous post, I think the holidays just really don't ALLOW for ANY kind of strict ritual or order of any kind.. At least certainly not in MY house!!! In fact, you may laugh when I tell you I'm currently signed up for a YEAR'S worth of days, called "Book of Days" with a mixed media/art-journaling online group, so this should be interesting! We'll SEE if I can keep up or not, but honestly, I do my scrapbooking and arts/crafts work of any sort for night time after dinner, EVERY day, so to me, this is my quiet time. Admittedly there are days when I can't even squeeze my quiet time at the end of the day, lately, but I'm gonna work on that in the coming year. I also love to crochet, so art journaling may have to step aside occasionally, so that I can do all my most favorite hobbies!. In the meantime, I'm thinking of even making some meditation/quiet time in the MORNING, if I can manage it!.. Imagine THAT! Only thing is, I haven't yet figured out where I'm supposed to fit in exercising too! (sigh.. Guess I'm supposed to do THAT too!) Well, looking forward to visiting your blog in the year ahead. My favorite photo in all these photos and pages was the one of you and your Brookie making cake together! It just melts my heart! On my next post, whenever I can find time for THAT, you'll understand better WHY. (0; Best wishes to you for a blessed and very Happy New Year! ~tina
