Christmas Journal - 14th December

This is my 100th post!!!  Wow!  No one is more surprised than me.  It was with some hesitation that I started blogging - who would be interested in my crafting?  A few of my forum friends started following, so that inspired me to carry on and now I am delighted to be "meeting" new people through my blog.

Today was the day that I set aside to finish off my Christmas shopping.  With this in mind, I set off to the shopping centre armed with my shopping list only to realise that I had forgotten the camera!  Still, I'm sure that everyone knows what a queue looks like!  My photo was the first thing that I did once I got home:

This page is another simple one - perhaps too simple I think.  I might look at it again tomorrow when I might get a flash of inspiration (it doesn't happen often, so I won't hold my breath!)

Hoping to get some wrapping done tomorrow, along with some crafting - need to make an 18th and a 60th birthday card along with a few more gift tags - I just don't think I'm going to have enough!

  1. WTG Carole on finishing the Christmas shopping.
    I think I have too (bought a cat stocking from the market for Lord Nibbler - Pat's cat) but won't really know until I start wrapping - still waiting for lots of parcels.

    p.s. I don't see anything wrong with your page - it tells the story perfectly!

  2. Hi Carole
    Love this layout. I haven't gotten bitten by the scrapbooking bug yet but the cardmaking bug has a hold on me. lol
    I was looking at your earlier blogs and you kindly offered to e mail a recipe for your mincemeat. I was wondering if the offer still stands? If you find the time and still would like to do it my email is as follows:
    e-mail is myrnacochrane@gmail.com
    Have a great Christmas.

  3. Your simple style is lovely, Carol,very elegant, and makes a pleasant change to all the Xmas sparkle. I like it very much! Have a lovely day! Hugs from snowland Germany!

  4. lol Carole a photo of a que would be funny. I love your simple page and well done on getting the christmas shopping done

  5. Congratulations! 100 posts is a great accomplishment! And I love the idea of this page! You must be so happy to be finished shopping. I think this month has been whipping by too quickly, our shopping is not done, and most of it has to be done online because all we have are grocery and drug stores in this small town...Aaah, I'm stressing out just thinking of it! I better go look for something for my bro-in-law. Keep up the wonderful work on your album!

  6. well done on your 100th post and well done for finishing your christmas shopping, good luck with the wrapping, love the page..x
