just a day
Both of the above layouts were in my article in the Winter 07 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker, on using henna patterns in scrapbooking. The top layout has handcut paisleys layered with patterned paper; the bottom layout is watercolour in ink, demonstrating the intricate layering and combining of patterns that is so common in henna.
Another grey, rainy day here -- what an odd winter it has been, weatherwise. We had two days with some snow but now it feels like early spring. So strange! We had this long, suspended autumn and now this misplaced springlike weather with a few bursts of wintery wind on occasion.
Finally settling back into a normal routine after Christmas and winter vacation; Paul started back to work on Monday and SL at school on Wednesday, and today feels like just a day, rather than a day without half of my family at home. Love having everyone home for some time together! but I can appreciate getting back into routine. Have a busy day ahead, should go get started.
