december 2

Hello December.
I'm really not certain how it rolled around so fast again. It seems like I just packed this advent away. I was happy to pull it out and place it on the white wall. In the newly painted white kitchen. It doesn't seem busy to me like it did last year. I'm assuming it is the white wall.
Although I really miss my baby, all is good on the photo front. I used shakeitphoto while away visiting my parents for my 365 project. If you have an iphone, check it out. It takes some pretty cool photos. This one makes me happy. I also found my old point and shoot that the kids have been using. Easy peasy to use. And I got to borrow my sisters Nikon D60 to take our Christmas card photo. No hand knit sweaters for the photo. I initially wanted to have the oona hoodie finished for Libby to wear, but that didn't happen. And that's okay. It's all okay.
Happy December.

Good outlook you have there; love the advent calendar, did you knit it? Oh, and my blog is now private due to an ex-husband so if you want to read it, email me at knitblogger@cox.net and I'll add you on.

Sweet advent. I know what you mean by the holidays coming around so quickly again. I feel like I just tucked the boxes in the closet downstairs. What is with that? ~Kelly

Never mind, I followed the link to answer my question. Now I want to buy the pattern even though it's unlikely I'll knit it. Although maybe a summer project?? Hmmm

I really love your advent calender. This year my baby is too young for this, but now I am quite enthusiast to knit it for the next December! WONDERFUL IDEA! Thank you thank you thank you!

It really is all ok, isn't it? Life is so much sweeter when we find contentment instead of searching for perfection, eh?

Happy knitting-

It's just as inspiring to me now as it was last year. Mine is up and ready to be photographed. Thanks for the inspiration to try it and stick with it to the end!

love the playfulness of your new header!!

I'm not a photographer - which is probably why I don't have a blog! - but I have to say I like the shakeitphotos I'm seeing on your blog and elsewhere; they're uber-cool. And, it's certainly reflective of your life right now in this moment so it suits the 365 project nicely!

I have no idea how December decided to arrive again so soon! I do love that mitten advent calendar!

We do put so much pressure on ourselves, don't we? Those darn holiday pics! But I bet you were psyched out of your mind to pull out your advent mittens calendar this year, though. It's beautiful, and IT'S DONE! IT'S DONE!

That WAS a cool beach pic!

I remember you making that advent last year. I bet you were so pleased when you were able to simply hang it up this year!

Alisha said...

After seeing yours last year I bought the pattern. I did one up on your advice of less color although I like all the colors I was scared so opted to scale down.

I am happy with it's outcome...the girls love it! They wanted to move the special treat (chocolate suckers) in the 24th closer to the beginning.

Part of me feels the same way, but I was so swamped over November that it being a different month is a relief!

Happy December! I love that advent calendar...I'm kicking myself that I didn't make one this summer! Guess I know what I'll be starting after Christmas. Your calmness is very appealing! Enjoy the season!

larissa said...

Happy December to you Leslie! I've chosen not to put any pressure on myself this holiday season either - if it gets done, great. If it doesn't that's okay too because all the kiddos truly need is a calm and happy mama. Have a great week.
