Get Crafting

Starting the new and finishing the old…

Sorry my blogging has been a bit sporadic lately, I need to try and get my groove back! Something that should help is that I’ve signed up to Shimelle’s Journal your Christmas class, which I’m excited about as I {heart} christmas! I’m really looking forward to this year as I think my daughter is going to start realising what it’s all about too, and I want to record it properly now so that she has a great keepsake of her christmasses in years to come. Here’s the manifesto for the class which Shimelle has given out for us to use (as decoration and a reminder of why we’re joining in!):

One of the prep things that was suggested for JYC was to put all the bits of paper and embellies that you want to use for the project into one place, to ease along the process of making something everyday. Now, I have a box for such projects, trouble was, it still contained items to use on my unfinished LSNED album from September. I thought I’d better finish off that journal before starting on another daily project! So here’s the final 5 pages from my LSNED book. They aren’t my faves as I was out of the habit of making them, and also trying to finish them off quickly, but they still record my lessons of the day (click on any to see them larger):

 

 

 

 

It feels good to have finished it! Now I can really relish the Christmas prep.┬áNow I’m off to fill aforementioned box with festive scrapbook products! xxx
