It's Thursday and I'm Thankful

It's Thursday and I'm thankful:
  • For a girl who will be fit enough to play in her concert tonight, and for the Get Well Soon wishes you sent.
  • For this amazing blog world, and the parcel I received from Alexa (with a beautiful card inside) AND the lovely email sent by Carmen yesterday.
  • For the Christmas Clubbers who have so willingly given time to turning up old photos and turning over old memories. That little girl sitting in her kitchen is now one nicely aged blogger, delighted and privileged to have been allowed to share.
  • For Kate's clever idea she emailed me yesterday, to let us tell stories all year round. It's something for January..
  • And for Journal Your Christmas and the groove I'm starting to find




I photographed the Tree Lover page without its journaling. The Tall One probably doesn't want everyone to know about his setting out in a manly way to hunt and gather a tree and meeting his girlfriends mum, who now thinks he's a lovely family-man-in-the-making. Oops, I've said too much already. But at least now you know where the "love " comes in.

Now I'm off upstairs to see if I can turn this post into the next page in my album. Because it's "Gratitude" day today; and I think I'm ready for it. I hope it's a good one for you, too.

Great post today. Still waiting for the groove on JYC, perhaps b/c my pix are still stuck in my camera, instead of printed. Mostly b/c I'm so busy with non-xmas stuff.
Super glad to hear that some kind of Sunday sharing may continue in the new year!

....and thankyou to you for getting so many other storytellers involved. Keep telling your stories Sian and even better, turn them into layouts.

I'm finally catching up here, and enjoyed (as always) the Christmas Club post and the Journal Your Christmas pages. I'm finding it hard to keep up this year. I haven't tried to do a daily album in the last few years, and now I know why! I'm finding inspiration here of course.

Latharia said...

Yup, I do scan my pages .. they're small enough to fit on the scanner, and until recently I was without a camera! :D

I love your pages. They are so fresh & fun ... you've got a special touch, and I haven't quite figured out what it is, but it's very special. I'm always inspired & impressed by your work!

Micayla said...

OOOH I have been looking forward to a JYC update. The wait was worth it.....stunning Sian as usual. You do rock the old supplies.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and the family.
