Day 4

Perfect Christmas!! Well I listed all the things that make Christmas important to me, and why people matter too. The artistic challenge was to include a photo or drawing so I staged a shot to include some of the things I love about Christmas, not sure the scan is clear enough, it's an (attempted) arty shot of a candle, bauble and cinnamon sticks.

Journalling panels read:
My Ideal Christmas - would excite all the senses

Sight - lots of lovely lights and candles, pretty baubles and decorated trees
Smell - lots of homebaking, puddings, chutnies, sauces, cinnamon and vanilla permeating the house
Taste - the fruits of the homebaking! Mince pies, chocolate from advent calendar
Touch - well this is obvious, feeling the pressies under the tree to try and guess what's in them
Sound - Christmas songs and films- faves are: (music)Santa Clause is Coming to Town, Step into Christmas, and of course - I wish it could be Christmas every day! (film) Santa Clause the movie, Dudley Moore makes the best elf ever!

Of course the perfect Christmas for me would be made of these things and more: people. What is Christmas if you can't share it with family and friends. I love how Christmas makes people think of others. Be it sending a Christmas Card or making sure you catch up with friends you may not have seen since last Christmas, work parties, drinks for Christmas Eve with mates, New Years Eve parties.
