And so it begins - -

- - Journalling Christmas - - The first prompt came this morning  - - along with my tickets for my Christmas Markets trip to Munich!! How apt and appropriate was that? And to REALLY get me into the Christmas Spirit - C and I have just put up our decorations in the Library - se we are doing Christmas here big style!! FOUR trees we have - a large 6ft one, (which we decorated - all the others are decorated by the children) -  a table size one at 4ft, a small "Breast Cancer" 2ft tree and a teeny tiny desk tree. As the library is such a large space it works out just perfectly.
As well as Shimelle's brilliant class - the wonderful Tim Holtz has posted the first of this Years 12 Tags - I do really want to have a play with the tags -but somehow time runs away with me - and another wonderful teacher out there who is also doing 12 Christmas Projects is the delightful Laura Denison of Following the Paper Trail - - so we really have no excuse NOT to be inspired!

Of course there is always the scent of pine to make me feel Christmassy ( not that I need much help!!) as the real trees are also due to be delivered today as well - so all in all I think I have lots of scope for a first page in my Journal! I just wish I was at home and could play instead of being in work! It does so get in the way of fun!
I will have to try to post my pages later - along with a recipe.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. We're huge Christmas fans too. We have 4 trees as well, one in the living room, one in the dining room, one in our hall & one in our bedroom. I can't wait to see how your decorations come along :)

  2. I've got the non-tree decorations up, and hopefully our two 6ft trees will go up in the next couple of days!

  3. Bonjour! I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog:) My husband is the cook in our family and he made me a scrumptious mincemeat(less) pie from scratch -- with lots of spices and cognac, too:)


Hi and welcome - thanks for taking the time to let me know you called.
