We are busy catching up with family and friends, eating good foods, going to nice places and doing lovely things.
So why is it every year I struggle to scrap all this?
It's like my mojo goes off on a Christmas holiday all on it's own and comes back later in January, by which time I no longer have any interest in scrapping Christmas.
Because of this I rarely have any Christmassy LO's. As for December Dailys, forget it. I always start with good intentions and give up after just a few days.
This year I'm tackling it Project Life style and it's working for me.
Back in Feb this year I said I would attempt Project Life but in my own relaxed way and it really has worked. So I thought I would try this for December too and 'Yes', it's working!!
I have my first week completed already and I've prepped this week too.
There is however a lot to document in December so I thought I would add a couple of extra pages.
I will show you these today.
After all, not every page has to start with a new week number or date does it??
I haven't used PL cards for these two pages, instead I used a couple of cute 12x12 papers that were perfect for cutting up.
First is this one from Bella Blvd. I love this happy paper.
I have cut it to suit my page protector. Across the top and then the next 2 sections in to twos.
Giving me this.
You can now see how it works for me. I just rounded off the corners.
I have added some little gems for some bling. The Prima Marketing gems and pearls are my favourite for this.
I love the little packs they come in and they are such great value.
My next page was more about the story telling.
Again no week number.
I used this October Afternoon paper. Make it Merry.
Here's my page all about picking our Christmas Tree this year.
I had a silly story to tell and this paper was perfect for my story.
I was able to document our tradition of how we pick our tree.
And if your paper doesn't quite fit what you need it to do.....then you make it fit.
A pair of scissors and it's a perfect fit : )
I'm so happy to be getting some of my stories down on paper this year.
This to me feels so informal and there's no pressure.
Perhaps I will actually get Christmas 2013 documented after all.
I hope you are enjoying your December so far.
