Journaling My Christmas

Yes, that's right people, I am now officially using the C word! I actually relented on 1st December and finally started saying "Christmas" in full!

So, very excited about being able to do this at Christmas: Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class. I've seen people do this before but never joined in. But finally I decided this was the year to give it a go. Of course I have the lurverly Mariek along with me, who's now a JYC veteran and has made me drool with her previous journals.

Anyhoo, every day there's a prompt from Shimelle with a theme for the day, so here are the first 2 (Dec 3rd's is half done but was just rudely interrupted by the Brownie run!). Dec 1st was to write a manifesto with your commitment to JYC. Mine's basically about recording the big things and little things about Christmas and having something to look back on in years to come:

Dec 2nd was about Christmas weather. As much as I'd have loved to scrap lovely snowy scenes, this is Englad and that doesn't really happen. So I scrapped the day's weather (er, cloud!) and how we always want the winter wonderland but never really get it in reality. Oooh and look at super new crafty stuff: Craft Robo'd and liquid appliqued fluffy clouds:

Watch this space for more Christmas musings!
