Oh Alexa, it's such a lovely album - great idea to stitch them all together to make one!

I enjoyed scrolling through the pages. What a lovely gift to receive - your mum's handmade ornaments. Continuing prayers for your dad & strength as y'all care for him!


A lovely recording of December. I chuckled at the photos of the two woolly hats. We are very much a country of dressing for the weather rather than totally for fashion.

Happy New Year & with it being the year of the rooster I am hoping that all the crowing we can do will be about well being, happiness, joy & the practise of hygge.


What lovely pages to look back on. I wonder why January always feels so different when after all, as you say, it's just one day difference!
I do hope that you have a good new year, keep well and keep smiling - I'm looking forward to reading about your 2017 as the year unfolds.

What a lovely glimpse into your December, that is such a clever way to gather bits together and keep them safe.

Yes, I too was struck by the new year. I went to file photos and realised I needed to set up a new set of folders.... first quarter of 2017, rather than last of 2016!


Yay for completing it. Very stylish.


It's absolutely beautiful. I'm chuffed to bits to see the sock wrapper in there! I've been thinking about you and the family over the holidays and I'm hoping for as much renewed health as is humanely possible for the new year for all of you


Looking great, Alexa. Sorry your dads struggling through extra health issues but hope he's coping. Sending best wishes for this year to you all. Jo xx

Congrats for managing to complete your DD.
It is looking absolutely marvelous!
I don't know how you manage to do it all with what you are going through but I am most impressed and keeping you and your Dad in my thoughts! I hope 2017 is gentle and kind to YOU!

Alexa, what a wonderful way to capture your days! Simply lovely.


This is just a perfect way to have recorded your December Days. I may do the same next year as my album is very far from being done. I hope the notes I took will help me remember the bits I want to record. I'm quite sure it will be February before it's done. I so enjoyed enlarging your collage and looking at the beautiful photography. I hope 2017 is filled with blessings for you and your family.


I love your December Days. Simply beautiful.
