So you may all be sick of me "blah-blah-blah-ing" about the whether to continue with the art journals/scrapbooks for my kids. But bear with me for one more post about it!
Since Noah turned five a couple weeks ago, I'd made the decision to finish his art journal at that point, and continue with Project Life as I will be doing with Riley. So in the past few weeks, I've sort of made a mad scramble to do some pages for him before THE END of the art journal! So here are those results:
The first is about his determination to learn how to whistle. He has really practiced and practiced, and learned how to do it! He's so proud of himself!
The next is about his tongue. Have you ever known a kid who needs his tongue to do everything? I swear, Noah cannot concentrate without his tongue out! I'm not sure how well you can see those smaller photos, but in every one, he has his tongue out! It's pretty cute!
And then the final spread. Obviously about him turning five. I used pieces from the pinata at his party, and a mouth and teeth from the silly monsters the kids made.
And finally, the cover to the book. I just love doing covers! It's the thing I'll miss most about doing these books!
I know I'm probably being all melodramatic about this, but it's really bittersweet knowing that this is the end of these art journals for the boys! While I'm excited about continuing with Project Life, these books were just so much more personal! But alas, the reason I'm making the change was because I was having such a hard time keeping up, and it will be nice not to be so stressed about it in the future. And of course, I will still be continuing with Avery's art journals!
So, here's to the end of one era, but the beginning of another for me! May it be just as creative and fulfilling!
(P.S. I know there are still a couple more questions I haven't answered yet. I will get to those, hopefully this week!)
