Today's album pages feature two of our own headers. Both were very ambitious and challenging projects for me ~ probably the one done in 2009 was the most complex I've ever worked on. Although the series done for last year, 2015 was time consuming ~ it was not quite as difficult, but it was certainly a lot of fun. Many of our viewers/readers today may not have seen the 2009 series and although shown here, we are not showing it in full.
First ~ 2015. We began with an empty tree, a simple graphic. Every few days we hung cards on the tree ... E-cards received from blogging friends. I'd intended to scan and include cards that came by way of "snail mail" but about that time my printer/scanner gave out on me, so was only able to list those greetings unfortunately ... though I think I may have snuck a few in. Over the month of December it was fun to watch our little tree fill up with our friends cards and greetings!
Second ~ 2009. Our header and our posts all month long were based on the concept of an Advent Calendar. Beginning with a December calendar, a kitty for each day. Then day by day, something or someone special appeared for the day ~ and in that day's post ~ the window opened. We celebrated family, blogging friends. We celebrated Rainbow Bridge memories. We celebrated the arrival of our third grandchild, a little baby boy. We celebrated dozens of wonderful kitties and amazing woofies that we had come to know and love through the world of pet blogging. And on December 25 we opened a window to celebrate our own family and share our Christmas wishes.
