JYC a year late

Shimelle runs this little course called Journal Your Christmas (JYC) which I started subscribing to in 2010 when I spent Christmas in Turkey.

I realise that you are meant to do the project in the current year, but 2011 was a bit of a whirlwind for me, so rather than start a new one this December (2012) I felt I should finish last year's first. There were only 16 pages that I wanted to do, partly because of time and partly because most of that year we were in and out of hospital.So without further ado....here are the pages...






















































I have come to realise that I don't actually like pages with no photos so i added a couple of similar photos to pages with only journalling.

The papers & embellishments were primarily Peppermint Twist by We R Memory Keepers, some Christmas Fancy by Dovecraft.

I think I am now going to start my 2012 album, but along the same lines - only selected pages because with the house move and other things I didnt follow all the prompts.

hey at least you got around to this - I had great plans to start baby books for my 3 about 5 years ago, needless to say they're not even started yet

Well done you! I never even got started with note taking in 2012. I just couldn't get any enthusiasm.Perhaps this year, who knows

That's a good idea, selected pages - and well done you for going back to finish a previous year's project! If I don't finish at the time, I don't tend to ever finish...

I love that you just picked up where you left off and it turned out great! Good for you :) Thanks so much for checking out mine too and for your super sweet comment!

Hi Caroline, glad to see I'm not the only one who is way behind with journaling Christmas. I quite like the idea of limiting the number of pages - at least the project would be completed sooner rather than the later it's looking like right now. Hope the wee one is doing well and that you have a great weekend with hubby at home. Elizabeth xx

I have wanted to take her class but just have not found time yet. Maybe if I can get a book together before the holidays??? Still need to pull together 2012 album! YIKES where does the time go?
