New blog


I made this layout for the very first Journaler's Junction challenge. This is a fab new blog by a wonderfully creative team, including the amazing Lu. I love her work!!! I'm so excited about this new blog, because it's all about journaling. The 1st challenge is "write it how you say it." So all day I thought about what words I say a lot. I realized that "it's ok" and "everybody is ok" come out of my mouth A LOT. That's my first reaction to try to calm myself and my kids when I feel the tension starting to rise. So I made this page of me soothing Chloe and journaled the following: As a mother, I find that I'm trying to diffuse the situation a lot of the time. Lots of crying and tantrums and one kid getting the other one going. I find myself saying "everyone is going to be ok" a lot for MY sanity and theirs.

Ahhhhhhh...this is *so* beautiful! I say this so much, too. I think it is hardwired into our brains as soon as we become mommies. Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge!!

It's beautiful, I love how the crochet (?) makes it soft/tender/mothery. And thanks for the link, I love all those sites that make you think and create!

Beautiful. It's interesting how revealing this theme is, of telling which phrases usually come out of one's mouth :)
