Moving On...

The "My Wellness Journey" class begins the 31st... and as of this morning I'm ready to go! The instructions said to make a 6x6 album covered with paper the makes you smile! This paper really did!! (June Bug Collection by Basic Grey) I finished the album this morning and it's ready for Thursday! I do need to sandpaper the edges but there isn't a piece of sandpaper in this house. Will pick some up later today!

This is the coordinating paper I used for the inside of the album. Normally I would have gone with a stripe or polka dot however I just love this paper so much! And you just can't have enough cheery colors at this time of the year!

Here are a few of my December Daily pages that haven't been punched and put into that album yet.

I don't know if you can read the journaling but the girl's dad took them and Wendy's husband to the Packer game against the Seattle Seahawks. The weather was freezing but a true Packer fan will sit through anything to see their team play!

Yesterday morning Wendy, Kristin, and SIL Darin headed to Chicago and flew to Phoenix AZ for a warm New Year's Eve.
I haven't done a page for Christmas as it was spent at the hospital. I'm not certain how I'm going to handle the page. Maybe it will be just a journaling format... no photos.
Boyd's brother fell on the ice at his parents on Christmas morning and broke a bone in his upper hip area. They found out that the bone broke because of a cancerous mass on his hip. The cancer is also in one kidney and lower lung. Please pray for Dana, his doctors and family. His mom is so exhausted as his Dad (90 years) fell last week and broke a bone in his shoulder area. I'll keep you updated!
Make this the best day you can!

Oh Joni, I'm so sorry to hear your news - I will keep your BIL and his support team in our prayers. That must have come as quite a shock! Hope Boyd's dad will be on the mend soon too.
On a more positive note, I LOVE the papers you've used for your Wellness binder, so cheerful! I'm impressed that you've got as much as you have done. I'm afraid I haven't got a binder yet but will have to sort one out soon.
Joni, if you drop me an email (you can send one from my blog) I'll reply to you and let you have my number. Are you on Skype at all?

Hi,I found you through Ronas blog.
Best wishes to all your family at this worrying time.
Good luck with your new project.

I will definitely keep Dana, Boyd's dad, and all of your family in my thoughts and prayers. This past year has certainly been challenging for your family.

As for the Wellness Journey project, your binder cover looks great. I have my binder and have selected the paper I want to use on the cover. However, I only have one sheet of that particular paper left so I'll have to visit the store tomorrow to get another one so I can finish my binder. I've already printed out all the pre-class materials as well as the pre-made insert pages. I'm ready to go and excited about the journey ahead.

Oh No! No wonder so many people become snowbirds in the winter -- the ice is treacherous. I hope everyone makes a speedy recovery. I love your December pages!

I'll say a prayer.
Your journal is awesome--that is some great paper. Isn't it great to have the Packer WINNING?

I'm leaving another comment because I cannot get your email link to work for me lately. I wanted to say I double-checked the free book links and they're still available. Once you click on the link on my blog and it takes you to the publisher's site, then click on each of the book pictures and simply fill in your name, address, etc. There's no fee involved -- as long as free copies are still available.

Joni, I'm so sorry to hear about your BIL and will certainly keep him and your family in my prayers. What a terrible shock it must have been!

Your Wellness binder is stunning. I love those bright papers. Who makes them?
