What was left of the day - err, week or 2 or 3....

Good morning everybody. First of all, I want to thank all of you who left kind comments yesterday. There are so many important events that we must not forget. This was one of those made very real for me by the contact I had to survivors. Your support means a great deal to me!

My journal pages were ones I made on Friday and Saturday after clearing my table - once again- of the huge heaps of stuff that was on it. My new journal is twice as large as the old one, so I need more space to work, and will - sob, sob - have to clear up more often. Or buy my next journal in inchie format!




And here the Christmas card I made for the DT at *The Cheerful Stamp pad*, where the challenge this week is to put the sentiment as the focal point. You still have 2 weeks to enter!


I had another rather unpleasant session with my Dentist yesterday, but only one more visit and it will be over and done with! I am lucky that I have such a kind and gentle doctor, or it would be really awful!

Today I have at last got all my Xmas post ready for posting, so it can be sent off tomorrow; a little bit later than I was hoping, but a lot earlier than last year, so that's something!

Hope you all have a great day. Take care of yourselves, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  16. Lovely pages again! I love how you combine all the images, they take me ages to pour over! I read your post from yesterday and it really moved me, the images you used really touched me and made me think of the horrors indured in those places. The poem brought tears to my eyes x x x
