I can't believe I'm almost finished sharing my 2016 pages. At the time of writing this, I have photos and some extra bits organized to start 2017, but I haven't put any cards or stories into the pages. I also still haven't picked up an album, but I'm blaming all of this on the fact that I've been working more, and working through the lessons of Wilna's 16 Ways to Show Love class that I picked up shortly after it came out. I could watch her videos and make the layouts over and over again and love it more every time.
On the title card I made a short list of what we had going on this week. I included a photo of Jon's advent calendar and a bit about how much he loves it. He's almost as excited as my nephew was about his Thomas one. I included a picture of my favourite chap stick that I can't seem to get anywhere anymore, which is sad because this was the end of my last one. I wrote about watching Frosty The Snowman with my nephew. It was one of my favourite movies growing up, and I loved being able to share that with him. I helped my niece fill out cards and envelopes for each of her Christmas ornaments that she wanted to give out to family.
Always trying to take different pictures, like the ice on the car window when we were going to get my sister and then drive to my younger brother's place to pick up some of my Great Grandparents' photos. I included a photo of our tree with all of our gifts waiting to be delivered. Jon snapped a selfie of us helping his nephew with some Lego and of course the Christmas tree at his parents which was drowning in gifts. I journaled about the Lego train (which was the best gift hands down) and so I had to include a photo of it.
One more week left, which will be shared on Friday, and then I need to get myself organized and started on 2017. I think I'm also going to switch up my background for photographing projects and go with a white background because it seems to be the preferred choice of literally everyone, and after photographing my DT projects and workspace projects on white, I'm falling in love with it; even if it is harder to edit.
