Christmas 2009...and JYC yippee :)

mmmm, 1st December and I have yet to start my Christmas cards. Which is what I should be doing now actually. In my chilly craft room with a smelly heater to keep me warm.

But the 1st Dec means JYC prompts......this being my nice fat free advent calender this year so of course, I have been browsing the forum instead and thinking on my manifesto.

I know when I signed up to do the class, my main objective was to help me stay organised as we have my parents this year. However, as the days have worn on and I have been looking at some old JYC albums on the forum ( I am a JYC virgin, u see), I like the idea of recording memories of past Christmases, since I have a poor memory and unfortunately, no children with whom to make Christmas what it should be (the boss can be a bit bah humbug!).

So, this year, I am going to try and recapture the Christmas spirit that I used to always embody and hopefully, by the 25th, I will feel sparkly instead of just hungover! I will record the things that make it feel like Christmas (Only Fools and Horses specials anyone?), pictures that bring back memories and just general Christmas excitement.


  1. That sounds like a great plan for your record - I know what you mean by Only Fools Christmas Specials, lol!

  2. Good goals to set for yourself. Look forward to seeing what you create along the way.

  3. Only Fool and Horses, fab. Enjoy JYC

  4. enjoy JYC, this sounds a great plan!
