JYC 2010

Back in November I joined Shimelles Journal Your Christmas, I have followed this in previous years, but this was my first year of participation. I did this for several reasons;

  • I love the build-up to Christmas
  • This was my 40th Christmas
  • I was spending Christmas in New York.
I was also hoping that it would kick start my scrapbooking hiatus, as I haven't really scrapped in the last couple of years. So I embarked on my Christmas journey settling on an 8x8 size album.
Due to several things I haven't had the opportunity to post any pictures etc of my Journal, but have now that I am finished I have decided to post a seperate page for my JYC. I can now add to this each year, as I have
enjoyed the experience. Some days I deviated slightly from the prompts but tried to stick as much as I could.

Day 1 was a brief introduction into the journal.
Day 2 - Weather - woke up to snow... what better to scrap
Day 3 - Christmas Cards... this year I fell in love with the Wallace & Gromit stamps and cards had a New York theme!
 Day 4 - My perfect Christmas ( well a lady can dream)
Day 5 - Countdown to Christmas - 19 sleeps until Santa
Day 6 - Tales of 2 Christmases - Wrapping is a big part of my Christmases so scrapped 2 themes from previous years. 'Natural' Christmas and Candy Cane & Gingerbread Christmas!
Day 7 - To Do List - made so much easier this year with my Apple -I- phone
Day 8 - Sights of the Season - Christmas in London, a pure delight, Bond street & Claridges 2 of my favourites this year!
Day 9 - Traditions - little things that I do each year.
Day 10 - Wrapping Paper - every year a different theme - this years red,white & blue with "Tiffany esque" ribbon.(homage to New York)
Day 11 - Christmas Tree - no tree for me this year so sharing some of my
favourite decorations.
Day 12 - Christmas Past - Twins by the Tree - taken at my nan & gramps's in 1975

 Day 13 - Christmas music - films & music a big part of my Christmas countdown - first airplay of Wham - Last Christmas on radio gets me very excited..
Day 14 - Gifts & Presents - present run for this year!
Day 15 - Visitors - little gift for Santa visiting
