Journal Your Christmas: 1st December

Well, it's finally here! December, all things Christmas and JYC! And Classic fm played their first carol this morning. Lovely! In the Bleak Midwinter.

So on my first page just sets out the things I'm looking forward to and planning for this December. Definitely including Project JYC 12x12 for 2010. I really enjoyed making this page, and a big shout out to Abi who sent me the metal tags! Yay! I think they may be a regular feature...

I'm going to focus on journalling this year, particularly as that's what frustrated me last year. Oh, and better photos. I'm pleased with this one documenting the things I like to don to keep cosy while I look out at the Earth quietly freezing. However, to get the photo involved me propping up the camera and using my boots as props to accurately focus, then pressing the self timer, performing a death defying leap over said camera, flinging the boots out the way and making sure I stand in the right place and then smoothing the wrinkles out of the socks. Click!

Looking forward to looking at other JYCs - so exciting!

P.S. I made these socks one summer in uni. They're really long and I was mocked mercilessly by my fellow employees. They have to be worn with a suspender belt to hold them. That casued comment too.

P.P.S. Feeling uber domestic as I made rocky road crunch bars for the staff meeting tomorrow. Pretty sugar stars on top! Hope they turn out OK though as the texture is weird...


  1. i love the socks, i've been trying to get the hang of knitting with double ended needles with some help from youtube, however it's not going very well, any tips?
    loving all the colours and the journalling
