Tuesday, December 16, 2008

OK so here are days 12-15. I am really loving doing this - it's been so much fun

Day 12 - memories of Christmas Past

Day 13 - Christmas Music - faves? Do you like it? etc....

Day 14 - gifts on the big day - when do you open them, who gives them out?

Day 15 - visitors - do you have any over the holidays, etc..

That's about it for now. Am hoping to bake some gingerbread today - YUM!! Love it love it.

Till next time

Stll here and still Journalling

Monday, December 15, 2008

OK so I've been sick the last week so haven't been doing much blogging and I got a little behind on my journal. Then on Wednesday night Joel had a shocking tummy bug and was vomiting most of the night/early morning so that wiped us out as well. BUT i am all caught up now! I will post Days 7-11 now and then 12-15 tomorrow as I haven't photographed them yet and it's getting a bit dark now.

Here we go

Day 7 - all about our to do lists.

Day 8 - we had to share how it's looking like Christmas around our house/street/city!

Day 9 - we had to scrap about our traditions. I did this last year so I focused on a childhood tradition which was going to/watching the John Martins Christmas Pageant in Adelaide.

Day 10 - wrapping - what are we using? do we enjoy wrapping presents?

Day 11 - the Christmas Tree

OK hopefully Ill be back tomorrow with the rest of the photos and then I am planning on staying on track.

Till next time

JYC Day 4, 5 & 6

Monday, December 08, 2008

OK so I wasn't back yesterday BUT Andrew went to Sydney for a wedding over the weekend and took the camera. SO I couldn't take any pics of my pages. But here they are

Day 4 - we had to write about our Perfect Christmas. I have all photos of pretty things, catalogue and movies Christmas scenes. But that's not what my perfect Christmas is

Day 5 - we had to document how we countdown to Christmas or our Advent traditions/calendars.

Day 6 - share 2 stories of Christmas pasts - 1 good and 1 not so good. Mine were both from last Christmas. Good - it was Joel's first Christmas. Not good - first Christmas without Nanna and Mum & Dad moving away.

So I'm almost up to date!!

Till next time.

JYC Day 3

Thursday, December 04, 2008

Still keeping up with Journal Your Christmas. Woo Hoo! Hoping I can go the distance.

Here is my Day 3 entry - it was all about Christmas cards. Do we make them, buy them , even send them, etc...?? I journalled inside the card.

I used a copy of the Christmas Card I'm sending out to people on the page.

Till tomorrow (hopefully!)

JYC Day 2

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

I KNOW!! 2 entries in 1 day. SHOCK HORROR!!
Here is my entry for Day 2. I only just got Day 3 email about 5 mins ago so technically I am caught up!!
We had to journal about the Christmas weather - snow or lack there of here in Australia

Ok that was all - just wanted to share!

Till next time

JYC Day 1

So here is my entry for Day 1 of Journal Your Christmas. They asked us to write a manifesto, a promise to ourselves. So here it is. Cause the prompts are coming from the UK, I am always going to be almost a day behind but that's ok. Joel is asleep now so I am going to try and get Day 2 done.

Christmas tree is half up. Well the tree is up and the decorations are going on tonight when Andrew gets home from work - pray that Joel doesn't trash it too much!! LOL!

Till next time!

Journal Your Christmas

Monday, December 01, 2008

So this year I am doing Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas again. I really loved doing it last year and think it will be something I try and do every year. I may mix it up a bit this year and use the prompts most of the time but also use the journal as a bit of a December Daily diary a la Ali Edwards (see link in sidebar)

So, as today is the 1st of December, the fun starts.

Here is the cover of my journal/album. I really love how it turned out.
MM Poinsetta glitter paper, MM green spot paper, AM Felt Thickers, Typewriter Letters from Willro&co Designs, little Tree badge from AM.

I am hoping to post a bit more regularly during December - just to share lots of Christmas love and joy.

Till next time.
