Welcome to December Daily® Day 20 for 2018.
This month is trucking right along. Can you guys believe it's just a few more days until Christmas?
I've been holding on to this story for a week or so, waiting for a good day to share it and today's the day. Just a heads up that today's story does include holiday spoilers for kids.
Here's a look at Day 20:
Inside the three tag pockets I included a "magic is something we make" word art (see download below), a chipboard santa on top of vellum and santa pattern paper, and my story that I printed using red text on a pink background on photo paper.
"Do you enjoy the magic of the season?" I responded as she asked me those tough childhood questions surrounding beleiving in things we can't see. "Yes," she said as she lowered her eyes and was enveloped in that bittersweet blanket of truth. "My sweet girl," I whispered, "now you'll become a magic maker and you'll be able to help create that for others." I went on, "Magic is something we make. Do you want to help make some magic with me this year?" She looked away feeling the disappointment and then looked back up at me with a brave face, "Yes, okay. But don't tell Dad because I want to feel the magic over there."
Before I shared this I asked her to read it and tell me if she felt like it was an accurate representation of our conversation and she said she thought it was and then told me I should be a writer. She has also already talked to Chris as well.
You can also read my past Holiday Helper post here that talks about this topic and Simon.
On the top left I created another fun hanging cluster using red embroidery thread attached to the back of the epoxy paper clip from yesterday. The cluster includes a gold glitter star, a plastic circle that was a Joy Story Kit™ Add On, and a paper die-cut Santa.
You can also see that I added the gold star brads to the center top of each of the tags. Those seem to be the product I can't get enough of this time around.
