Twas the night before...

...Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas!
I am so excited for the first prompt to come from Shimelle's website, which in North America will come sometime tonight!!! This is the most prepared that I have ever been for my class, so this will give me more time to write, write, write!
This is the first year that I have also pre-done my numbers, you can see them on my Christmas trees.
So far, I have pre-done 40 (two sided) pages.

Well, blogging two days in a row. This really is a record, but it has a purpose. Just a little more evidence of what is completed on my Holiday Journal so far. I think I have about 20 out of my goal of 50 prepared!
I am planning to work hard to get more done this week-end and Shelley's crop.

The proof is in the ....pudding?!?

Okay, maybe it isn't time for Christmas Pudding quite yet, but here goes a better attempt at showing my work to others!
I know that I am terrrible for writing, writing, and writing, but not publishing pictures to my favorite websites. This season I am determined to change that. Otherwise, you really might think that this is all just a bunch of Christmas bull!
Yes I am happy to join JYC for the fifth year now. And here is proof of some of the hard work I've been doing to get ready.
Doesn't my scrap area look all eclectic, like a "Tim Holtz" type craft area...well that's good, really it is just a mess! Amidst this mess here is my great new fun cover for my 6X12 Holiday Journal.
Of course I was anxious to get started, and TSR was able to help out with giving journal holiday words! Today's word is "JOY"! Here is the page I have started for it. I will have 2 words to work with this week, so I am taking a bit of time to think about this one.

Just so my Christmas stash doesn't get out of control, I have it all contained in this new handy dandy folder that I recently purchased!

Christmas Crafting

Mmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm! Probably as delicious as Christmas Baking is Christmas Crafting. Today at Shimelle's website we start a full week-end and season of crafting. I am so excited to begin, as I really already have begun! Yes several pages are prepped, and some even journalled on! I couldn't stop myself from getting started. I know there will be days later on in the season that will be more hectic, and may not be time to get at it daily.

I am excited to let the fun begin!

First Snow

Ugh! Even though I am excited about the holiday season approaching, I am not about the condition of the roads tonight due to our first snowfall.

Speaking of holidays, I have begun putting together my 2011 JYC (Journal Your Christmas). So far I have 14 pages (28 sides) completed and ready to go! I can hardly wait!
