The countdown has begun ...

So I've made a start on my Xmas Journal. I'm not up to date, but I'm not worried about it!! I'm doing a combination of Ali Edwards' Daily Dairy and Shimelle's Journal Your Xmas. I'm using a Making Memories 6x9 album.

Day 1 - My Manifesto - which basically says to enjoy the journalling process in order to achieve a record of family memories. This is in a divided page protector. Reverse side - documents the UKS advent swap that I'm taking part in which a picture of my yummy parcel I received.
Day 2 - The Weather, which fitted Shimelle's prompt perfectly as some parts of the country did have snow, and we almost did - a 5 minute flurry!
Day 3 - Xmas Cards. Have used the reversed of Day 2 plus and envelope which holds one of DDs Xmas cards that she's produced as part of a school project.
Day 4 - Create for Xmas. This was a Ladies Craft evening event at my friends church. She asked me to help this year and so I made up minibook kits and on the night helped 40 ladies to make one from scratch. This page is on acetate.
Reverse side - showing the minibook kits.
Day 5 - Meeting Santa at the School Fair. This page consists of a flashcard with a photo on the reverse and an extra page for another photo plus journalling.
So just 3 more pages to catch up.
In other news:
  • We had a great time in London to see The Lion King and my little sister was thrilled with her album - made all the effort worth it to see her smile!
  • We've been without hot water for 10 days and central heating for 5, so haven't felt like doing much festive. It's now been fixed this morning, so am feeling a bit cheerier!
  • I won a prize on the Rough Draft blog - made my week. Can't wait to find out what I've won.
