Shimelle's Journal your Christmas starts tomorrow, there is still time to sign up if you haven't already. JYC is all about taking your Christmas back and cherishing even the smallest of details through blogging, scrapbooking or even taking photos.
This will be my third JYC, the first year I did a 12x12 album - which was hard work and I really do not recommend it! Last Year I went with 6x6 but found that too small as a 6x4 picture ate the page!
This year I originally wanted 8x8 but couldn't find the album I wanted so I am going with 8.5x11. I have always wanted to try this size so this seems the perfect opportunity! To keep my album quick and easy I am going to do a bit of a mish-mosh of pages, so If one day I am strapped for time I can simply add a photo and I am done! I am also slightly combining JYC with Ali Edwards December Daily, I am following Shimelle's prompts but adding in extracts of December antics!
My album cover is posted here if you want to check it out.
I have been at the Christmas crafts again and I made this cute tree:
It is really easy to make and you can find it on the Martha Stewart website. This is one for the craft room and you may see it popping up from time to time in December! (more on that later!)
We were supposed to be travelling two hours to an antique fair today but old Jack Frost appeared again! Not where we are I might add but where we were supposed to be going. I am so glad we didn't attempt to go as I have heard some crazy weather stories!
We did however, travel 20 minutes to Sainsbury's as it wasn't snowing in our area, this was Sainsbury's:
The car park was deserted! Had we known it was going to be this bad just 20 minutes up the road we wouldn't have gone! We did have fun though and it put us in festive spirits for tomorrow.
Not only is is JYC tomorrow, it's Dec day!
I will share more tomorrow as it is going to be appearing in my JYC!
