The cards are cute, but the kiddos are cuter!!

This is so pretty. I was not a fan of slimline cards - until now!

Stunning card, as always. The light pool of blue behind this one works well.

Well, I am late in getting round, so by now you've experienced an actual cuddle with your granddaughter and I'm sure there are few things in life that can rival that. Well spotted on all those curiosities. I am afraid my camera roll definitely reflects too little of the outside world. But with the temps rising, and spring coming, there is hope on the horizon in that regard.

You have such a knack for making your cards pop. Love this one - it exudes sunshine.

Sweet card! You had me at purple.
Love the reflections in both words and pictures.

You are just so good at the details. Those rounded corners suit the flowers wonderfully.

Yay on getting the letter. I keep checking our appointment website so that as soon as the age range drops another 5 years I will be signing up. Our snow has slowed things down a bit, cancelling a day or two of appointments, but the local health department has vowed to get everyone caught up timely, especially for the all important second dose. I trust them to do that. Really, I am in awe of our local and state officials - and feel sorry for those in areas of our country where it is all talk and no action. How fun to add interactive elements to your planner layouts. And I think the lines helps the handwriting look more uniform. Not that handwriting needs to look that way, but I am an accountant and we like our spreadsheets with everything in the boxes where they belong!

Be like water - that seems so appropriate for you. I am in awe of your walking habits (and a bit ashamed at the lack of mine.) But then water is constantly flowing isn't it.

That's a card that can make one feel happy even if they are feeling blue.

Monochrome is just how things are! I scrapped a little January field trip on grey and black paper and the photos didn't add much color. This makes us appreciate the colors of spring all the more. I don't follow Cathy Z or even Stacy J anymore, I've come to scrapbook in the style I like - which changes and evolves and even changes back. I have been drifting more toward your style which I describe as magazine layout style. The clean neatness of it is calming - it is timeless. Blog friends are the best - anytime I feel like I may have been too whiny, self-centered or emotional in a blog post I write - I am always met with empathy by my fellow bloggers. That has been proven time and again over the last 9 months. Social media is not the same safe environment and I find myself using it less and less. I agree! Organising our world equitably sounds like a noble goal, but first we must get back to treating each and every person we come in contact with the utmost respect. Labeling and name calling has become second nature and has wrought lots of havoc with our society. I think we have to fix this problem one piece at a time, like a puzzle. And really, the only control most of us have, is over our own actions. Reminding myself often to try and set an example (and stop moaning.)
There are lots of treasures in this post - like the baking story, the meeting with Mr. Claus and that ending quote. But what I will remember longest is friluftsliv! If I had known braving the cold weather had such a fanciful name, I would have been doing it more.
Curiosity put into action - that sounds perfect for the times.

I was so enjoying your day by day celebration of December days, even though I knew what was coming. You are talented with wreath arranging and card making too - not to mention photography and writing. We were not so severely limited, so at least had our 2 kids here. Our DIL was not feeling well (non-Covid), so she didn't come. So Christmas Eve was salvaged a little - but I confess to feeling a malaise all month, which was almost as disappointing. But not wanting to feel down for long, I am already making notes for making Christmas 2021 over the top!
I love that wreath - very lush greenery! Fab card.

Nice! Very eye-catching.
That makes quite an elegant statement.

It's just not fair that COVID and your Brexit transition just won't seem to end. We had our own false hope that an election would bring about change, and I suppose like Brexit that too will happen EVENTUALLY! I can never stick with a word all year either - tried it two or three times and I'm not sure I ever made it as far as April. Your description of the little one hanging the ornament brought it to like before my eyes. I do so enjoy your storytelling and photography.

Beautiful card. I sometimes make Thanksgiving cards, but this year the paper I ordered for that purpose was back ordered and by the time it arrived I was out of time. I guess I'll have plenty of time this winter to get next year's done.

Enjoyed your snaps, but Cindi's photo of the little cutie may have stole the show.

I am so far behind on your blog that I have been scrolling like crazy this a.m. and enjoying your beautiful cards - but the first one in this post stopped me in scroll. Gorgeous, I say! The texture and the twine just grabbed me.
