Christmas Journal - 4th December

Today was nearly the day that I didn't manage to do any of my journal (already!)  However, by doing things slightly differently, I found the time to do today's page (and happily, it also leaves me something to journal about tomorrow!)  Normally, we set aside a day to decorate the house for Christmas but we didn't have a clear day this weekend and just didn't want to wait until next weekend.  So, the boxes were brought down from the attic this morning, and when we returned home this afternoon we set about putting the trees up and decorating them.

So, today's page is all about our Christmas Trees:

I made a pocket from my gorgeous Basic Grey Wassail papers and tucked the photos of the trees and my journalling card into the pocket (I also popped in the everyday journalling card).  Loving the title in my Doodlebug all mixed up rub ons.

I do apologise for the quality of the photos, but the trees are much more lovely in real life, and I am loving having them up and twinkling - it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!  It will feel even more like Christmas tomorrow as I shall finish decorating the house when I get home from work - yes, don't ask, I am working in the shop on a Sunday :(
