what we're doing this morning

Leila fell asleep on me as we wound down playtime this morning. Since my laptop was in reach, I'm catching up on some blog reading while I'm immobile. Here are a few of my favorite posts:

and, I entered to win this awesome book! I am loving Grandma's sewing machine, but large quantities of fabric do intimidate me. The projects in this book all use one yard of fabric or less, so would be good practice of my slow-developing sewing skills.

Christmas Journal, Day 1

Today is the first day of a new tradition - to Journal My Christmas! I am so excited about this and hope I can really keep it up until January 6 (I definitely can't commit to posting my pages here each day, but I'll try to share every once in a while). Each day I receive a prompt in my email for a new page and today the goal was to create a "manifesto" - a statement of intent to take time every day for myself and my Christmas journal and also the reason why I have decided to commit to this project. Here is my page from day one - December 1!
