Well not much time for crafty things this week - so a rather bare desk !

But amongst the shopping & wrapping I have managed to keep up with my Journal Your Christmas !

It has been a big help to have everything collected together into one Project Box - it has top spot in my new storage unit !

As you can see by Day 18 my box is looking well rummaged !!

And in the background my Christmas CD which keeps me company whilst I am JYC-ing and wrapping presents too !

And I have found some stitched reindeer in Hobbycraft - we are having "Festive Jumper Friday" at work this Friday - wear something Christmassy and make a donation to our local hospice !
One of these chaps will be pinned to my red jacket !

And I picked up the Winter limited addition Promarkers in the sale - really soft pretty colours !
So will be decorating these cut out canvasses for my Journal ..

And here are my JYC pages
Last weeks Scrap Club Christmas get together ...

Our Food Safari  & night out at the Glitter Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.
My friend, who invited my colleague & I to the ball, sadly lost her Dad very suddenly on Sunday - so my thoughts & prayers are with her this week.

This was a prompt about the weather this month ...

And pretty Christmassy things ..

Well - wishing you & your loved ones a very Merry Christmas - looking forward to seeing all your projects & desks in the New Year !

Have a lovely Christmas !

  15. Can't believe you have time for the JYC on top of everything else, but I like that you're sticking to one drawer of bits and bobs for it. Cute little reindeer and I like your LO's, especially the frosty weather one.

    Have a great Christmas
