Tis all prepared!

Yes folks I have some how managed to prepare my JYC album this year.  I can't quite believe it myself.  I signed up for JYC in 2009, but did not make it past day 8.  Last year I didn't even attempt it but this year I really wanted to give it another go.  I fell in love with the Christmas kit on Shimelle's blog and ordered it. So after spending the money I really wanted to do something with it. By squeezing in a few crafty moments here and there I have got it done.

I have never pre-made pages in an album before, but I'm hoping by getting these done I can simply add the journalling, a few replenishments and it will get done.  I have a note book at the ready, and plan to scribble my notes each day and then work on the pages as and when I can fit them in. 

 I've gone for 6x6 this time and hope this will be a manageable size.  I'm also only going to go up to New Years Day - a page for most days with Christmas Day etc maybe will be two pages.  Sometimes there will be photos - sometimes not.  So that's the plan - watch this space as I hope I will be able to manage to blog a few completed pages here and there!

I can hardly comprehend we are nearly at the 1st!  Since my last post, I'm feeling a lot better.  I managed to get on top of most Christmas things and have all my lists and plans in place which always helps me feel better.

Bring on the Christmas madness!

My wheeze for finishing my JYC album is to plan on stopping at Christmas Day - it's the bit after that I just never have the time for, so this has worked for me the past two years. I'm looking forward to seeing you fill this one up

Love your pages.... super cute!!! I am doing a 6x6 album as well... I'm with you, it's a totally manageable size. I'm looking forward to watching you work on this album over the next month! See you in class!!!

Great idea to get ahead and ready. I've never finished NYC either, and although I won't be taking part this year, I'll be looking forward to seeing yours.

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog recently, I'm going to start my blog reading again.
