December Daily Album

I have finally taken some photos for my DDA that I am happy with. Most days were too sunny but Saturday morning was overcast and I find that is the time to take the best photos with my camera. I am a little behind in completing the pages but I have tried to stay up to date with my journaling. I am finding that it is really hard to remember exactly what I did a few days ago, so I have made a point of jotting down a few things at the end of each day on my computer.

Journaling Page 1

I have hidden the journaling in between page 1 and page 2. On the back of the journaling card, I have adhered the business card from Sweet and Shabby (which holds more information) where my daughter and I enjoyed morning tea.

Hopefully this week I will get more time to catch up on a few more pages. I love checking out other DDAs and at times I am in awe of all the talent out there. Every one has such a unique style and they are creating an amazing keepsake.

Time Out

Life is getting hectic at present, what with all the Christmas parties, decorations, projects on the go, not to mention the normal day to day routines. So I decided to have a little ME time. A lovely stroll on our beach. The afternoon was quite warm and the tide was in. The blue sky was clear except for two osprey gliding on the breeze. The whole beach, all 1.5klm was deserted but for one seagull and even it flew away.

Of cause I took my camera with me.......I am doing a DDA (December Daily Album) and there is always something to photograph - like those osprey, and the beach and of cause ME. It was just what I needed, a place to clear my mind and simply enjoy the moment.

As I walked along the water's edge, I thought about what it would be like to have a white Christmas. Would I enjoy the snow and the cold. It all looks so lovely in the postcards.

Maybe one day I will experience snow flakes, scarfs and hot chocolate. But until then it's hats, sunglasses and bare feet.

Christmas Season

"Out with the old and in with the new"..... "Nothing like a change"...... I've heard this many times. !!!! I felt that my old look was a bit boring so while I decide on a new look to go with my new banner I think I will keep it plain.

This morning I woke and wondered what the day would bring. Well so far it has been all good. I got a message from Letters to Scrap By letting me know that I was the winner of the latest challenge, so that was cool news. If you haven't checked them out yet, then you should.

I also have been trying to add a slide show to my blog so with a little help from Bec my daughter, it is up and running and because part of the slide show was obscured, meant that I needed to change my layout so I went the whole hog. I now don't have to copy and paste the post that featured my LOs so it would always be at the top of the page. YEAH.

Anyhow, I am off to have a walk on the beach and get some sand between my toes.
