Tales from the Hobbit House ...

... now where was I?

Oh yes, it's the 1st December and for the first time since 2009 I've decided to Journal My Christmas adding to this 30 Days of Lists.

I've made my journal covers but haven't decided about a title yet. I'm using Simple Stories December Documented and page dividers for the pages. It's still a bit of work in progress at the moment, having only decided to do one last Tuesday! The Snap cards only go up to 25, so I need to add some more numbers to take it up to 3rd January which is Lily's birthday.




Alongside the choccie calenders for the second year running is a Lego Friends calender and this year I found an Adventivity book, combined with our tradition of an advent activity calender. We've tried various things over the years - simple activities, a book a day and last year was a daily treasure hunt so this year I've combined them all together - the first clue was to find the rest of the calenders hidden in the house!

This post is bought to you with thanks to Ruth and Sandie (plus a bunch of other lovely, crafty ladies) for inspiring me to create again.
