December Daily – Day 13 and Day 14

I added this Christmas picture of my sister Elaine and myself.  I was probably around 13, but who knows.

The flood pants I am wearing crack me up.   Not to mention the print.  But the award for geek clothes go to my sister in her caftan.

I think the cat was Pinks or Patches.   She blends into the caftan so it is hard to tell.

Be Jolly


Tree decorating day!!!!   I have an artificial tree that has lights that fade and turn colors.  It is so easy to put together.  However I have had other fake trees that looked prettier, but at this ripe old age, easy is best.

The gold burst behind the number 13 is a great set from Do Crafts that is call Glitterations.   It is hard to tell but these are filigree snowflakes and stars.

What I love about using a digital journaling cards is that I can change the colors.  I was able to make the Shine Bright card to be purple like the tree in my picture.  And with my new nifty printer it comes out so nice.  But again I had issues with how much glitter to add to the pocket.

Our Tree Day 13


I wanted to showcase the silly hats I made my dogs wear.   LOL.  Every year.  Olive (the white Maltese) has no issues with outfits.  Penny (the black and white terrier) not so much.  She hates it.  LOL

It is hard to see but the day 14 is on a foiled pattern paper from Heidi Swapp including the snowflake.   I used blue foil to coordinate with the page.

Day 14 Cutie Pie

I wanted to do a clear overlay with words of my Christmas.  I used some transparencies that are for ink jet printers.  I liked how it came out.

Clear Words

Underneath the transparency I used an October Afternoon snow scene.   I added the word JOY using some grey foam thickers.


On the back of this paper I placed another photo from my youth.  A picture of all of us and the family cat Rusty.  If you noticed the outfits, it was the same from the stocking photo.  I loved that little outfit.  My sister had a friend named Mary Lee and she was real petite so she was about my size.  Not to mention that her family was very wealthy. So on occasion I would get hand me downs from Mary Lee.  They were awesome clothes.  This one was a wonderful white dress with a red velvet jacket.  Oh how I loved this dress.  So glad I have a photo of the dress for my memories.
