Journal Your Christmas - my intentions


I wasn't sure if I was going to have anything to journal and scrap about for JYC this year as there are only the two of us at home at the moment and it seems that life hasn't really changed a lot since last year and is a bit boring.But then I think that's the whole idea really isn't it? You may think that your life is boring but maybe to others it isn't.I actually fancy doing a little book with some nice papers and nice embellishments with all the things I like in it,and to kind of do it just as I like it. So that's what I'm going to do. I'm sure Shimelle's main aim is for us to do it as we want it and if we digress and don't do it exactly as prompts say, it doesn't matter.I'm going to take each day,take some guidance from the daily prompts and take it from there.So you might see some random pics popping up in the next few weeks!

Sounds like just the way it should be done!

yep...I agree...Shimelles classes always give you the freedom to do it all your own way!

You have the right idea, absolutely! It's a good idea to record how December feels now that all your sons live away from home for most of the year. Think of the pleasure you'll have in years to come, when you can share JYC 2010 with your grandchildren!

I like your attitude about this, Denise. And I think part of the point is to recognize and appreciate the ordinary-every-day things, even if they don't seem super exciting. Have fun! xo

Random ALWAYS sounds great to me!

Hi Denise -
I don't have your email but just wanted to let you know that I'm running another class this Sunday. More mixed-media fun and book binding but an ingenious and slightly simpler binding technique. A bit more relaxing this time - not quite such a boot camp!

If you fancy it let me know.

Take Care, Marie
