Journal Your Christmas 1st - 3rd

Hello all,

Sorry there's been a bit of a gap here again. I was ill last week, and the doctor said it hit me worse than it should because I was over-working myself and getting stressed. So I've been trying to take it easy this week. I'm not very good at relaxing, I like to be busy and multi-tasking all the time. This week I have actually sat and watched telly without blogging or crafting at the same time - shocker! Anyway, I think I'm now fully recovered and back on track.

Luckily I had prepared most of my Journal Your Christmas album before I was ill, so I've already been able to complete the first few entries. I haven't done a title or manifesto page yet, I'm hoping to get them done tomorrow or Monday. But I have managed pages for the 1st through to today (the 3rd):




They're quite simple, and not entirely co-ordinated. I'm trying not too worry about it too much - my aim for JYC this year is to get the story and photos down, (and use up a lot of old supplies), as I know I'll treasure it even if the pages aren't 'perfect' for my scrapping style. Then next year I can fuss over it more and get some new, more co-ordinated supplies to use!

I'm feeling in the festive spirit, as I had Christmas tunes on while I was putting these pages together, and I'm off out for a Christmas meal tonight with some friends. I'm looking forward to having a chance to chat, and let my hair down! Hope you are all having fun, festive weekends. x

Lovely pages - I totally agree that it's better to have imperfect memories than nothing at all, but these are great!

I never worry too much about coordinating at Christmas - you should see our tree! We chuck everything on it! I'm glad to hear that you are back on your feet and fit for a few festivities

I'm loving the shape of your pages, i must try this size myself one year. You're right you'll love your JYC book no matter the style and supplies. I look back at my first JYC and although my style has changed greatly over the past four years I still totally love this book and the memories it holds.
