yup...it's Wednesday everyone...time for say whaaaaaaaaaat Wednesday question...so here goes
"If you could be anywhere... with anyone RIGHT now...where would you be and who would you be with??"
me...i would love to be with my grandma julie in her kitchen dancing on her feet to polish polka music!!! i LOVED that growing up and always felt so safe in my grandma julie and grandpa louie's house. i have so many amazing childhood memories in that sweet, cozy home in small town illinois! from all the times i spent there coloring, coloring, coloring to grandpa bringing us buggy donuts on saturday mornings. i am SO grateful for the time i was able to spend with them growing up and the impact that had on me now in my adult years. thank you grandma and grandpa! i think they are dancing together right now on Heaven's floor!!
other than than ...i have been busying myself with making Christmas gifts this year. given the financial situation of many (including us)... due to our crazy economy... i started a new tradition in my family where we each drew a name out of a bowl and had to MAKE something for that person. i guess it is my attempt at teaching my kids to tap into their creative sides and to also show them it isn't all about spending money and going out to buy gifts, but rather being creative from our hearts!
the pictures above are of a journal i made for my oldest daughter Mackenzie who is 15 and quite the poet...this post references her gift for doing just that!! i drew her name and thought this just may make the perfect gift! i also made a journal for a very dear friend of mine as a gift. in the interior of the journals i sporadically wrote quotes or my own little messages with some personal photos to make their" journal journey" more interesting...it was made with TONS of love and many personal touches!!
if you are interested and would like me to make one for a friend, sister, daughter, aunt, mom, son, brother, dad, yourself, etc... please let me know as i will be taking custom orders after the holidays!!
Happy happy Wednesday blog loves of mine..loves and hugs comin at ya!!! xxoo
