Remembering 2011

Well things are finally calming down here and I am finally beginning to feel alive again!  The laundry is caught up, most of the dishes (especially those big pans) from the party are cleaned and put away, the kids schoolwork is up and going again - I think we actually are back on schedule! 

One of the things that I've been trying to get to and just couldn't seem to do it was my project for December's challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  I really loved the challenge, and knew exactly how I wanted to document it, but my brain was totally fried in all the stress that had been going on the past 2 weeks.  But yesterday and today I finally got down my thoughts...

The challenge was:  to spend time thinking about the blessings in my life and all those little miracles that God did in my life in the last year. I am sure that many are coming to your mind as you read this... Maybe something that didn't go the way you hoped, but later on turned out to be a huge blessing. Or maybe you just have been too busy to realize that something you've wanted for so long just occurred? Or maybe you are reminded of a true Christmas miracle that happened last year. What ever your blessings and miracles are in your life it is truly the season to remember them.

The scrap twist was:  to include a treasure.

My treasures that I included were some of the notices we had received earlier this year, acceptance letters, and then I journaled on some of the cards inside of the envelopes.

"When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you."  Deut 8:10

  1. Such a wonderful documentation of a year full of blessing. Good for you for getting it out of your head and onto something that everyone can enjoy for years to come :)
