Journal Your Christmas: 24th December

Well, I've had a bit of a break from blogging over Christmas and it's been lovely catching up with the family and spending some quality time and whatnot.
But I've got some more JYC to share now, so here's my page about Christmas stockings.  This year, my brother and I did stockings for Mum and Dad for the first time.  This involved a lot of last minute secret plotting and knitting.  We had to stay up extra late (!) and hide them on the kitchen table after the parents had gone to bed.  We're allowed to stay up late now.  And they ended up being non-traditionally-shaped stockings in gift bags.  We'll work on that next year :D

It all worked out rather well as the parents didn't do stockings for each other this year, so it was a nice surprise.  And snaps for Mum for making the patchwork quilt you can see displaying my little page to advantage.  It's the quilt I've been snuggling with to keep warm while I'm at home.

I've had a wonderful Christmas and I really hope you have too.  Looking forward to 2012 now!

P.S. Thank you all so much for your wonderful response to my scrapbooking class Just One Sketch.  I've really made progress with the fundraising over Christmas - lots more ideas and projects, and the whole thing seems less daunting.  And I've been working on pages for the class - I really hope you enjoy it!

P.P.S. If you're interested, registration is still open - it never shuts!- and we officially begin on 15th January.   But the class blog will go live on 1st January with something to get thinking about. More info here if you're interested in joining us!


  1. A lovely page and a lovely thought to do your mum and dad stockings. Happy New Year.

  2. I love that you made stockings for your parents, I imagine the pair of you had fun trying to be quiet! love your page for 24th & looking forward to your class x Happy New Year

  3. Now there's a suggestion I shall be storing away. Stockings for parents. I could go for that. I'm looking forward to seeing what your class has planned for us

  4. I'm loving the size of your JYC this year, I've decided mine is too big and will be downsizing next year! :)
