I have been waiting on this post.
then, I could not post.
then I could, but almost put this aside, for good.
to never be posted.
because some parts of this.
it just hurts.
and hopefully by posting this I will heal a bit more and somehow I will encourage you to pull out what you do not want to share, what you are holding back on sharing.
and just share.
this spread is week 27, 2013
the first full week of July.
and certainly one of my favorite weeks all year.
This contains a 2 page spread and two fun inserts, which are better described on the video links below.
the red stitching and layering on this page makes it feel completely wonderful to me
and these six blessings make any week sweeter, fuller, most wonderful.
this page has fun pockets and flips
and behind that picture is something even cuter, which you can see in the video.
and onto the inserts, this one being the harder one.
this front side contains three generations, the only namesakes this family has left.
and the back, true words, hard words, the words I needed to tell.
the next insert is a fun "current-type" insert
want to know how I created these journaling cards? simply watch the second video.
and you want to see more now may want to check out this video (which was live) and this video showing the finished work in better detail and description (I may have cried, you have been warned).
