Hi there, welcome back and grab a cuppa something because this one is going to go fast and filled with yummy inspiration! I have several days to catch up on – the last blog post was photos for Day 7, so yesterday I had to complete Days 8 & 9. That is totally ok, and completely part of the process, to miss a day and pick back up on the following day. Some really wonderful things have been happening around here, and that is most important.
So first up, I have a process video that shows all 3 days. I hope you enjoy!
And now for the still photos for Days 8 & 9. I’ll just tell you quickly what was going on, and then post photos. For Day 8 we started working on decorating our tree. We mostly just got lights put on. My journaling was really just a quick note about how I’d be happy if we only had lights on the tree.
The white tree from Ali Edwards’ Main Kit was coated in Glossy Accents and then I applied the enamel dots while the glue was still drying, so they became part of the tree itself. So cute.
Now for Day 9. I realized that photographing this way made it confusing with Day 10 showing through, so I slid a white sheet of paper underneath to help make Day 9 show better.
On this day I had the most amazing lunch with my wonderful friend, Katey Zeh. Katey is the founder and director of Healthy Families, Healthy Planets, an organization that advocates for maternal health around the world. Her work can be seen here. Also, to learn more about an upcoming class she is teaching through Drew University, on advocacy work, please click here.
Katey has long inspired my own work in women’s issues and my own advocacy, and so to sit at the table and chat with her about motherhood, blogging, healthcare, theology, and women’s rights was truly amazing. I’m still processing our conversations, so I didn’t journal much at all. That’s ok, too, to not tell the whole story quite yet. That story will be told in other ways!
And then, because it fit so very much, I used this word strip from Jen Hadfield Homemade Collection to summarize our lunch just so very fittingly:
Alright, I hope you enjoyed that! I am off to spend another amazing day with my lovely husband, we are attending a Monet-inspired art event and I can hardly wait. I won’t do my usual links, because I am out of time! But, I will credit Ali Edwards with the December Daily concept, and to learn more about this incredible project please visit her website here.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now go, do, and create, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
