More Christmas pages...

I've been pretty busy over the last few days doing some DT work for the Papermaze blog - it should be up there later this month but for now I can't share it here. However, I have managed to get another two pages of my christmas journal completed, which means I only have two more to do to reach my target of christmas day! I think thats quite an achievement as we are only halfway through January :)

The first page was for December 22 and was another to do list of the things we had to get completed before the big day. I was surprisingly organised and didn't have too much to do, but managed to jot down a few things. This isn't my most favourite page - it could do with something in the top right corner but I don't have anything suitable so for now it will have to stay as it is.

The second page was for December 23 and was about Stockings. Now, we don't have stockings these days as we are all in our twenties and poor mum works full time and doesn't always manage to finish wrapping the presents. So this picture of stockings was found on the internet. We did have stockings when we were younger, but they were hung on the end of our bed, a device to try and win mum and dad an extra hour in bed before we opened our presents under the tree with them. It was always exciting to think that Father Christmas was going to be in our room that night, though I remember my sister being convinced that she had seen him and being a little bit scared of seeing him again! You never know, maybe she did see him...

Work as always is pretty busy, and I have to go and mark Year 10 books, as well as doing the washing up and making our lunches. So I'm afraid this post will have to end here, but I will be back soon, hopefully with two more journal pages to share!
