So, I'm back home. Jamie's at my parents and I have about half an hour before I have to leave to go and get him. I have a coffee, a fruit mince tart left from Christmas and my laptop. It's my therapy.
And here's something to cheer me up. I hope you enjoy it: my top 10 pages from 2007. Well, almost. Many of my top 10 are out for publication. These are the ones of those that aren't out. In no particular order:
Love this little face and that little Tigger suit. And I loved the poem when I first found it:
Be fearless baby boy
fearless enough to run into the cold ocean waves
fearless enough to make your voice heard
fearless because you know love is always with you
Be strong little one
strong enough to stand up for what is right
strong enough not to laugh at others misfortune
strong because you draw strength from the Universe
Be faithful and true in whatever you do
the world is waiting for you
Look at that face! I love the colours on this one. This year, I've found myself moving to vibrancy in my layouts and I'm liking it.
A page about me. This was for Ngaire Bartlam's "beautiful" theme. It's about the journey I have taken over the last five years, dealing with depression and burn-out.
Look at that little possum, with his rucksack. Off to childcare. The journaling on this one is all about how awful it was when he started childcare. He hated it. I cried. It's marginally better now, six months later. But not much. He still cries. On occasion so do I.
Another one about me. I used to be really really shy. I still am, deep down inside. I have forced myself to not be. It has been necessary, in the careers I've had.
Love the colours on this one, again. This was one of the first layouts I did with Katja's Designing Memories kits. I swear, these kits are the best! I love this design team. I really do count down the days to get my package of goodies each month.
Love that little butt. Jamie only crawled for two months. Then he got up and walked. I have hardly any photos of this phase in his life.
These are the Moments
All about my tranquil spot. This was in our old home, and I'm glad I have recorded the memory
I am Three
Vintage Kathie. Look at those tights saggin' around my knees. LOL.
Peek a Boo
I love that I captured his first attempts at instigating "peek a boo". One of those moments layouts.
There you have it. Good for you if you're still reading!
Have a lovely week.
