Don't miss those little moments!

It is such a beautiful time of year. A time to give and enjoy every moment you can. It is hard this time of year for us not to get so caught up in the rush and business of getting all those perfect gifts and making everyone happy. My hope for you is that you don't allow yourself to miss those special moments that only pass by during this time. Take time to enjoy your family and the precious time you have with them. Eagerly watch their faces open those gifts with excitement. Those moments and the chance to see them are priceless. So remember to take time to notice and make conscious memories of this time and these moments. For we never truly know in this world if we will have the chance of a tomorrow. Things can happen, so don't miss those little moments!
Lots of love and joy to you all!

Solace memories

A joyful moment
I see your heart
Amazed to find

A Few Deco'ed Pages

These are a few pages I decorated in decos that me and my mom are passing back and forth. We have so much fun doing these pages together. We pick a theme to start it off then decorate the rest of the book by trading it back and forth until it is finished, then the one who made the book and chose the theme gets to keep it.

I use to trade decos via postal mail with others all over the world, but after the disappointment of not receiving the ones I made back, I decided not to do that any more. Every once in a while I will receive one home, and I always reward the ones that are gracious enough to send them back.

Thus to fill my desire to decorate these little cute books, I started trading with my mom who also likes to do them too. It is a great way to use up my scraps from other projects and it has created a bond that me and my mom share that is priceless.
