So hello everyone - hope all those of you who celebrate the season are starting to feel suitably festive !!
The week seems to be careering past at a rate of knots ! (Well the whole year has - so why should I be surprised !!)
So just a short post today as the only crafty project on the go on my desk this week is Journal Your Christmas ! Check out Shimelle Laine's blog for more details of how to join in ! http://www.shimelle.com/
I thought I would show you where I have got to so far !
The pages are a bit plain & functional at the moment, but I have evolved my own little way of keeping up !
As a minimum each day I try to read the prompts - both the Journal Prompt & the In Focus Photography challenge one as well.
I endeavour to type up my thoughts about each day's prompt into a PowerPoint presentation (I use these all the time at work so it's my comfort zone for writing & printing out !) and save them.
Then I try out a few of the photography challenges when I have a camera in my hand & capture Christmas images too - I drop all those photos into the PowerPoint too & size them to what I think will fit nicely onto a page.
When I get a spare hour I print out a few days at a time & get the basics done on each page.
I'll go back at a later date & add embellishments & a bit of Christmas bling for good measure.
But not getting much time off this Christmas plus away for most of that so this may be a bit of a challenge !
After it is all done I bind the pages onto book rings, add festive ribbons & trimmings and pop it somewhere safe for future years of looking back !
Anyway - here are the front cover, welcome page with my 2012 Christmas manifesto & pages 1 to 3
Here we go with the next 4 pages
And the last one's up to the 11th ...
Anyway - that's it from me for this week !
Looking forward to seeing what you are all up to & hope you have a fun Christmas-sy week !
