Christmas and Lists

Logged on to leave a post to start me off on regular posting and really disappointed that it's been over a month since I last posted and looking at our project life for October, there's not much content there either.  Although feeling a bit tired and doing a lot of decorating and getting the house ready I don't really have an excuse  Anyway, no point in dwelling, another new start and all that!!!

Have made a decision about December Journalling this year and decided that I'm going to do Ali Edwards December Daily for 2011 rather than Shimelle Laine's Journal Your Christmas.  Back in 2008 the first year I signed up for JYC I managed to keep completely up-to-date and loved the experience, however, in 2009 & 2010 I lost motivation after the first few days as rather than journalling about what we did that year, I felt as though I was just repeating on the things we do every year for Christmas and recalling the same traditions and events.   Hence my decision to try the December daily instead, although I am going to try and carry it on throughout new year to the twelfth night, which could be quite a challenge given that during this period I will at some point give birth to Baby B.  Over the next week or so I will be creating my album using the K & Co's Peppermint Twist
I love this design so much!

I also have some transparencies that I brought a while ago (not sure of the make) so seeing AE's DD pages over the last week I'm really motivated that she's using transparencies for her album this year.  For my Autumn 11 in 2011 album (and Winter 11 in 2011 - more later in the week) I experimented with using my sewing machine and clear transparencies, seeing AE's DD pages I think I am going to try and incorporate that into my DD too.

Moving on...  lots and lots of lists to post, lots of ideas for my etsy to post and time is ticking away I really need to get some  items onto etsy although I do fear that I'm going to miss out on Christmas this year although as well as the DD I will also be completing one of my Christmas Journals to use as an example next year.  My DD, PL and CJ will all contain similar information but in a different style.  If I get 'stuck' I do intend to pick out some items from SL's JYC as 'fillers' but I just don't want to record the same old stuff each year.

And now for a little Nursery craft project picture, a before and after of the mobile I adapted for Baby B's room.
 Before, with elephants and giraffes.
And after, with the beach huts and lighthouses I made by cutting the designs from the maritime material from Dunelm Mill and stuffing.
