JYC 2012 - Getting Ready
I had almost decided to not even attempt JCY this year as looking at all that is currently going on in my life, I thought why add another thing to the list! However when the odd post started to pop up here and there and then Shimelle announced the class had had a revamp, I began to think perhaps I would.
My track record of completing my album is not great - I joined the class in 2009 and managed 4 pages! 2010 saw no attempt made but 2011 saw an album created. So what was the difference last year? Well firstly I treated myself to Shimelle's Christmas in the box and only used those supplies and I pre-made all the base pages. Whilst I couldn't manage a page a day, it was fairly straightforward to catch up.
The problem to be solved was could I find a manageable way to do it this year? Far too late to pre-make some base pages. However I did dig out a 5-7 paperchase album I have been saving and I ordered some basic supplies. These are all now gathered together in a box.
Hopefully using my new phone, I will manage some photos each day, maybe a tweet or a blog post, gather some thoughts along the way and eventually get them down on paper? Who knows but I'm going to give it a try.
Let the Christmas countdown begin!
