It’s all in the little details

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

Detail: Eat, love, live

Oh, I know! You are all tired of my December book by now. Nobody but me (and Pam) is wallowing in Christmas any longer… but still, I wanted to share these photos of the little details of my December Journal project. It is in the little details you will find my favorite bits. It is in the detail and the close ups that you will understand how precious every little bit is. The pieces are the whole that makes up our lives! So enjoy, or keep calm and carry on as I share the last (for now) of Christmas details of 2010.

  1. Steph, thanks for commenting! I took a quick peek at your blog too, you make such pretty things. Love your collages!

  2. Only 325 days left until Christmas, Hanna! I’m already excited about finding the “perfect” gifts to make for my family and friends! Never to early to start! And you’ve inspired me to create a folder for Christmas-inspired ephemera so I can make my own Christmas journal this year.
    Thanks for taking the time to share some of the details that really make your journals yours. Loved all the pics of Smilla throughout, and your use of art deco tape made me smile. Very cool, Hanna!
