Last year was my first JYC and I loved it. I've never been a very festive person but doing the journal helped to change that by making me think more about and become more involved. As a result I have joined in again this year, and as you know my supplies have been ready in a box for a couple of weeks now.
I decided to keep it bright and simple this year, using white cardstock as the base for my pages. I'm finding it hard not to stitch, stamp and distress the pages, but I am loving the simplicity. It's given my journal a completely different feel from last year which is what I wanted to achieve. I've also kept up for the first three days....
Here they are then, my first three pages.
1st December: Manifesto
2nd December: Weather
At first I was going to buy my cards this year, then make them, but when this prompt came out it made me realise it wasn't worth the stress of trying to find the time to make cards this year, so off Rosie and I went yesterday to the local Oxfam and got all my cards. They are now written and waiting to be posted, with the exception of one of the cards which I have used on the page.
