Happy New Year! I'm just getting back into our routine as the kids just went back to school this past Monday. But.... they are off tomorrow and Monday! We had a great vacation spending time together. The kids were disappointed that it didn't snow at all over break, but today it snowed a lot! After school, they ran outside to go sledding across the street. They had so much fun and loved the sleds.
I taught a journaling class over vacation too! 5 girls (including Gia) participated and they seemed to really like what they learned. Everyone sewed their own journal and I taught them lots of different backgrounds, textures and collage. It was a little stressful as we were in the dining room and I was worried something was going to break or stain the floor.
I have been playing around in my journals, trying to get myself going again. I am participating in Strathmore's journaling series and right now the instructor is Traci Bautista. I love to doodle and I love using intense colors. So far, it's been fun!
