Christmas Journal - 31st December

We had another chilling out kind of day today in readiness for back to school and back to work on Wednesday, so I snuck into my Crafty Corner and did another two pages of my Christmas Journal.

New Year's Eve is officially my least favourite day of all 365, however, I was pleased with how my page turned out!  I made life more difficult for myself by doing a double page, and again for New Year's Day.  Still not decided when to finish, mainly because we took all the decorations down yesterday and it does feel like it's all over (but I am enjoying it so much I don't want it to end!)

The holly and ribbon embellishment is actually a gift tag that I had squirrelled away a few years ago because I loved it so much - I knew I would find a use for it one day, and that day arrived!

p.s. If you ever see Chinese lanterns for sale, do buy some as they really are beautiful to watch as they float up into the night sky ...


  1. More lovely pages, Carole, well done for seeing it through! Those lanterns are really lovely, but forbidden here, because we live near the airport!

  2. Gorgeous page Carole - fab gift tag too.

    p.s. why don't you finish on 6th Jan when the Twelve Days of Christmas officially end?

  3. I love how this spread turned out! So glad to know I'm not the only one who dislikes New Year's Eve, and now I know I'm not the only one who saves tags, too!
