I had a most excellent Christmas - our boys came over, stayed the night and we played games, drank and ate, played some more games, talked and put our feet up and talked some more - oh yeah, and played some more games and ate and drank some more......did I mention we love games of all types? It was one of my favorite Christmases ever! Here's my family on Christmas morning:
I have found some time to be creative - a moment here and there. I've been working on my ALAW (a letter a week) project, my second alphabet. Here's the last of the letters I've written on my pockets (these haven't been cut apart and folded yet). Then I'm adding photos that I've taken of flowers beginning with each letter to fill the pockets. Next step is to figure out the book format I want to tackle.
I certainly like how some of these letters turned out more than others - even after practicing a whole page of each before moving to the pocket - the texture of the paper is different and the pen reacts differently, but I didn't have enough of the pocket paper to practice on it.....so I figured it out.
Here's a few of the flower photos that will go in the pockets - they are 5x2.25"
Hopefully I'll get the book started in the next few days.....Now it's time to turn my mind to what I want to tackle for my first alphabet in 2013.....hmmm.....
