I have a recent event share today. I have been making a conscious effort to document the bigger of the daily events in our lives so that when it comes time to journaling, I have the fresh memories to write about rather than recall.
Shaving Time! A bit of a play on words. Not only was it his first time shaving but it was an act done in anticipation of shaving time off of his personal bests. A week ago, Nikolas and I sat in the jacuzzi tub in our master bathroom and underwent a swimmers' rite of passage together. First the clippers - easy, not a problem. Then, the razor. Michael had bought him shaving cream and a razor but the razor wasn't quite what I was used to. We switched to a woman's razor which is really much better designed for leg hair removal. No knicks or chunks of skin removed along the way - I'd call that a success! Mind you, my back was pretty sore after the fact...
I love this American Crafts collection from Shimelle! The bright colors, as you know, are right up my alley. And they are a perfect compliment to the bright shirt that Nikolas is wearing. My laying the vellum over the right hand side of the page, I was able to mute them somewhat and let the bright light in the pictures shine.
I even convinced Nikolas to write on the page for me! It might just be two words and a lot of exclamation points but that's a start! All the exclamation points are there "because I had to fill the space, right Mum?" Silly boy!
Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you have had success in shaving time lately!
