Christmas Journal - 27th December

I know that I am a little behind again with my journal, but I did sneak an hour in my Crafty Corner this afternoon when we got home from my in laws and did a page for Monday.  Since our Christmas cake had a page of its own, it felt only right that the Christmas Pudding should also be a star for a day!

I love making my own pudding, for me it is all part of the magic, and using my mixing bowl that my Nanna bought me all just adds to the special feelings.  I think it might have only been Hayden and I who got to stir the mixture and make wishes this year, but I did manage to capture that image knowing that I was going to try to journal the whole of our Christmas this year.

I didn't leave myself enough room to journal everything I wanted to, but I know how I feel about it!  I made the little paper pudding by cutting two circles and then using a wreath die to pinch the holly from!

I'm going to have trouble with the next two days journal in that I have taken loads of photos, and then it will be New Years Eve!  Oh well, I'm not going to give up now!  Still undecided about when to finish though - my binding rings are suggesting New Years Day might be when to stop ...

  3. Another lovely page, Carole! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  4. Carole, this is a really special page! I loved hearing about this tradition - we don't do Christmas pudding here. What's it made with? I was just shocked to hear you only have 2 types of donuts over there - you are totally missing out!!! There's a business idea for ya if you are ever inclined, ha! OK, I have to go pay some attention to Ailis now (when I said I was writing to my friend in England, she wanted me to ask you how the Queen is, silly kid!)
