Untouched photos of the bread which I baked using the no-knead recipe from a day or so back....the 12 hours of "rising" seems to have is a rustic, "Tuscan" type bread. It almost made itself while I worked on the art journal pages! I used a generous dusting of cornmeal to keep the dough from sticking to the Dutch/(French?) oven.

Now, results from many hours with printer, scissors, glue stick......(or what to do with all those digital camera photos...)

This is the page about Christmas Eve....a candlelight church service, a lovely meal in a fine restaurant with the new grandson along too!...and finally being home for Lilia to open one gift before bedtime! The antique angel card tells about the candlelight service, as we have no photos...

This is the scanned page of a collage made in 1999, when Lilia was a baby....the photo of my exotic granddaughter from the rainforest is floating on a butterfly(which is loose and tied to the binding wire) above a comfortable raft toward which a tiger is swimming....a visual expression of a grandmother's prayers for her safety in a beautiful but sometimes dangerous world.

Bread looks wonderful. Did it taste as good as it looks?

I love that collage for Lilia. It is very beautiful and strong.

Happy New Year to you and all of yours!

Such an interesting collage about your granddaughter, especially when you explained the symbolism behind it.
