It’s a holly, jolly time of year…. almost

Three more sleeps and it’s December. Officially time to put up the tree, welcome back Glitter (our Elf on the Shelf and generally get festive!

It’s also time to start Journal Your Christmas, a yearly class from the ever amazing Shimelle Laine (I am such a fangirl lol). You can check out (& sign up for) the class here (and once you join you can take the class each year for free. Bonus – the JYC community are amazing) and have a look at this year’s kit here (not a necessity but you et to see Shimelle’s gorgeous Christmas line)

2015 is my 5th year of JYC and I’m hoping to blog my album as I go. Maybe 2015 will be the year I actually finish my album before the next Christmas (my 2014 album is nearly finished). I’m excited to be using lots of Shimelle goodness that is part of the Scrappy Canary Christmas kit this year and leftovers from last year (& all the other Christmas goodies I’ve hoarded lol)

Do you JYC or December Daily?
