{Day 26} The day after...


{Day 26} is a very different entry in my journal. First off, I was thrilled to find out that our Christmas journal prompts go through the 12 days of Christmas, ending January 6th. The "day after Christmas" page was about what we do on this day, whether we celebrate Boxing Day or go hit the sales. For me, we drove down to Iowa to visit my cousins and spend the day with my mother's side of the family. We had a great day. However, for my journal, I chose to do a simple page with a different theme. The challenge of the day was to use something in our layout that we would normally throw away. So I looked through the daily paper and was very intriqued by this picture I found. It was a couple of girls dressed with angel wings walking down the street. I loved the picture and wanted to use it on my page. I looked through the wonderful new books my hubby gave me for Christmas (below) for a technique I could try. It sure has a different feel, but appropriate for the day:) There was a little blurb with the picture stating that its part of the celebration of the Passage of the Traveling Saint, which Equadoreans participate in. I was touched and felt like it belonged in my journal. I used the word hope and wrote my journaling bit about how after the holiday's are done, it's a time for rejuvenation and reflection on our hopes and dreams for the new year!

Here are the wonderful books my fabulous hubby gave me for Christmas. Love them all!!
