I'm not quite sure what is different this year to previous years, as in the past I have managed to more or less keep up to date with my Christmas Journal. Not this year. Not a chance! I don't know why. What I do know is that I WILL finish this album. I have to. I LOVE this project.
I apologise for the quality of the photos, but if I wait for good light to take photos of my pages then it could be months! So I took them on my desk in my lovely new craft room which hasn't been used nearly enough recently!
I love Yankee candles! Not just at Christmas either ... and luckily for me, we have started stocking them at work too YAY!
Since we haven't even seen a single snowflake during December, I found a way of including a snowscene on this page!
It was such a good feeling to get all my wrapping done (and I had so many rolls left from previous years that I decided to mix and match this year and use them up!)
I started early with my Christmas preparations, and still somehow got late (especially with sending out my Christmas cards, although I was still in time to catch the last posting date for 2nd class).
Today, I did sneak into my craft room again, but had to make some cards as January and February are very busy months for me. I used to love making cards. Then I discovered scrapping! Enough said? I made 6 ladies birthday cards all of the same style, two important male cards (my new brother in law and my father in law), my 10 year old nephew and a congratulations card for my cousin who got engaged at Christmas :) Hopefully todays card making session will see me through until the middle of February then I will have to make some more!
Back soon with more pages from my journal (currently I am up to Christmas Eve).
