Better late than never

Hope everyone had a wonderful christmas! We had a lovely time with family, I haven't laughed so much for a long time.

Finally I am getting around to uploading some of my journl your christmas album! I have not been keeping up, but then I knew that I wouldn't, I just want to have it completed by the end of January. Here are my first few pages and the front cover - very simply a white piece of thick card painted over with glitter, added a bit of paper some thickers and a bit more bling! My journal is mixed sizes inside, and may or may not be bound with the bind-it-all, depending on how thick it ends up!

Day 1 was all about why we are doing this journal - for me a very special christmas - our first as husband and wife, all together now - aaaww bless lol!
Day 2 and I've journalled about snow in winter and how it seems to be getting more unlikely as the years go by that we'll have snow at Christmas.

Day 3 - cards. I had very good intentions this year to make loads of christmas cards with these cute stamps that I bought. Unfortunately I completely ran out of time and made one. I did actually make one more for Michael, but not until the 22nd lol! I am resolving to do better next year, I may even try making them throughout the year so that it's all sorted by the beginning of December. Who knows, miracles could happen!

Day 4 - I kept it simple with a list of some of my favourite things about the christmas season.

So there we go, will upload a few more pages soon!

We are busy busy at the moment with house stuff - we've had an offer accepted on a house we love so fingers crossed for a smooth process from here on. It's all guns to the deck at the moment with finance, surveyors, solicitors etc. Work is busy too, I am on a wierd shift of 4.30pm to 1am this week, but then have 10 days off yippee! Michael is taking me to see Joseph in London I am so excited!

Christmas is nearly here, how fast is December going?!

I've been working hard in my new job - I am now officially a surgeon, or rather a surgeon's slave lol! It's busy but interesting, and it is taking up a lot of my time! I'm even working this weekend, so the Christmas shopping has been squeezed into the odd spare hour!

I've a couple of layouts to show that I did a couple of weekends ago when my sister came up to visit - we spent 2 fun days watching Christmas films and scrapping. Something we must do more often. She is getting quite into scrapping, and is starting to get addicted to minibooks too lol!

News from me - I have been asked to join a design team - for Sarah's Cards, and am so excited about starting! Should be getting my first package to start creating with soon, yay!

I've been doing Shimelle's christmas journal, kind of! I knew I would struggle to keep up but I'm managing to do bits here and there. I'm hoping to be done by the end of January. I'm loving the project so far - Christmas is such a lovely time of year, and Christmas stash is so scrummy!

Will post some of my pages so far soon!
