Up-to-Date with 'December Daily'

Day 12
Gabby got a Christmas Mouse in her stocking... actually two! The green mouse has vanished but I keep tripping over this red one! She loves it!! For my album I took a photo of the mouse, printed it and cut it out. Then mounted it on white cardstock and cut around the mouse. Day 12
A photo of Gabby with her mouse between her paws.

Day 13
Pictures of most of our wreathes in and outside our home.
Day 14
The day I signed up for my new class... "Wellness Journey". More information about the class in my previous post.

Our 2009 Christmas card which will not be sent this year. I created it in PSE7 and saved it but can't find it. I keep searching! So... I decided not to send cards this year. I have too much I want to do... no time to start over!

Day 15
My current book... almost finished! A wonderful story about SELFLESSNESS! It takes place in a small village in England in 1666 during the time of the plague. This is a photo of the cover which I printed and cut out.

Day 15
This is a library card glued to the back of the cover photo.

Day 16
Each December I'm interested in seeing who (& why) Time magazine chooses for their 'Person of the Year'.
Day 17
I've been making heart garlands to hang on our tree. I wanted to enhance the Scandinavian flavor of our 2009 tree.

December has gone so quickly!! All the prep and it's over next week. But those moments with family and friends will last forever.
Fa la la la la!

Your book is looking great Joni! And Be Still My Heart! A Year of Wonders is one of my all time favorite novels -- and not because our heroine is named after me LOL!

Your scrapbooks are amazing but I can't imagine where you keep them all. You must have a big house!

Every year I'm tempted not to send cards - I think to myself that all my friends would think theirs had just got lost in the post - if they even noticed. But then I do like getting them myself - so I always send them.

That’s some valuable book you made Joni! A wonderful document.

I love the Christmas preparations fun, but it’s over in a blink!

Your Christmas album is coming along nicely. As soon as I stop browsing here, I'm off to try and catch up on mine! I love the content of yours. Geraldine Brooks was here to speak a month ago. She was charming and talked a lot about the creation of all of her books. My favorite is People of the Book--one of the best books I read in 2008.

You are so inspiring Joni! Merry Christmas!

I LOVED that book--my whole book club did. Those wreaths--how pretty.

I'm loving everything about your December Daily book, including the way it keeps all your holiday memories.

Now I'm going over to read about the wellness project you mentioned.
