I'm glad everyone is so excited about the new kit! And I can't wait to see what you all create. To help get you motivated and inspired I've created a new challenge for the Superlatives Kit. You can enter as many layouts as you'd like for more chances to win the random drawing for 50 DCs. So good luck!
I made this kit about a year ago when we finished our year of traveling. Our trip started from Korea (where we had been living for 2 years teaching English) and ended here in Amman, Jordan. We visited 50 cities in 18 countries over 310 days. Here's a little video with a few more details:
Last night we celebrated the yearly tradition of reading aloud "The Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. We invited over several friends and everyone enjoyed reading different characters. In between the 5 chapters we had snack breaks and also we all wore fancy hats.
I can't believe how fast the month is going! We're already at day 17!
We've moved onto our third and last puzzle (unless we want to go buy a new one) and last night we finished the third season of Downton Abbey, a great show, even it's a little dramatic. You can't help but love all the lines from the Dowager Grandmother.
While we were sleeping my brother-in-law Brendan arrived from the States and tonight we are excepting our final arrival. The holidays are a great time to work on a puzzle, and my sister-in-law, Karith, and I finished our first one!
Today is shaping up to be a rainy, rainy day. It's been about half a year since we last had rain, so it's a nice change, but it makes the house very cold. I'm bundled up with my tea and space heater, but worried because I was really cold in the house yesterday and my father-in-law informed me that it was 64F/18C, but that we could expect the house to drop to 46F/8C in a month or so. I'm remembering last year sitting on the couch and seeing my breath.
Some more Christmas traditions have come out of the closet. Yesterday we had our first advent breakfast; we "missed" the first Sunday since we were alone, but my mother-in-law makes delicious cardamon rolls, which we enjoyed yesterday for breakfast. We've also started working on a puzzle in the evening.
A very exciting thing happened. A few weeks ago I was interviewed for a local magazine as "Blogger of the Month," which was perhaps a bit misleading since I wasn't even blogging at the time, but it still made me feel like a superstar! You can read the article here if you'd like.
Thanks everyone who left Jordan some birthday wishes yesterday. We enjoyed reading them all, and we had a great day celebrating. His sister actually arrived in the morning just in time to celebrate, bringing lots of goodies from England.
1. All my freebies are always under the CU license.
2. All the new assets for the Merry & Bright kit are the ones that have just been posted. I'm publishing them now, so if it's new, it's new, you know? ;)
I've posted my Merry & Bright Christmas kits from last year, and also I'll be adding a few things to the assets over the next couple of days that I didn't upload last year. There's a few more alphas to come as well.
