Are you ready ?

Nope- neither am I....
I don't think I have ever been so UNready ......I've got kit. ( I can hear my friend Deb tutting - yes I really did  need it honest ! ).I really want to document December - but can't make my mind up quite how to do it.
Things really are quite different this year - life is trotting by very very quickly at the moment...
I think I will probably try and make a small- ish booky journal - I really do think it's a good thing to have the pages ready so i'm going to get cracking tonight and make a start.
I've been busying myself with preparing my class for the Eclectic Keepsakes crop this weekend - and now i'm happy with that I can think about other stuff.
I might just make an envelope album actually- hmmm.' Anybody else out there doing JYC and what are you doing this time? Honestly - there is never a dull moment in our house,after number two son moved out a month ago - and thinking the house would be empty and boring - number one son has moved back home ! Love it !

For once I actually am ready!!!! Have used a Simple Stories pad to make the album....which made it all much easier.

I'm ready, but who knows how long that will last! I always seem to get behind it seems. Nice thing about Shimelle's classes are that they can be done at your own pace!

I tried to get ready today, but because the schools are off for strike day I got distracted by a bit of family Christmas cookery!

I have supplies ready but was hoping to have got some base pages done, December 1st snuck up too quick this year :)

You HAD to have it? Hmmm ... a likely tale! Had forgotten it starts tomorrow so my JYC may be via a blog post!

Good luck with your JYC this year! I admire you for trying - I didn't even do that this time. It's just too chaotic here and I think I will be struggling to Do Christmas, let alone Journal it as well!
I'm sure you will come up with a format to suit you. You could try a 7x5" rectangle, with 2 punched holes and rounded corners. That would hold a 6x4" photo (or smaller) and you could fit journalling on the same page, or facing page? Then bind it with book rings or ribbons. Quick and easy format - leaving more time for the pretty bits!
Good luck and enjoy it!

Life does have a habit of getting in the way sometimes! I've gone for a 6x6 basic chipboard album with added envelope and card pages. Hoping to keep it simple so that I can keep up this year. I was also stuck for ideas, with there being so much choice.
Looking forward to Saturday - lots!!!

JYC seems like a really great idea, and I wish I had the time to join in too! I will look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with though! :D
