I realised I had to make it fit with my life-style, no matter how I wanted neat embellished tags or pages there was never going to be time to make that happen. What I knew I did want from the project was a record of my Christmas season, with notes on things I wanted to remember and look back on in future years or to use as a source of information for any Christmas themed pages I make in 2013.
My little notebook has been perfect. I've had some stamps out today so I took the opportunity to add a few here and there. Here's a typical page.
Just jottings there and then as I read the daily prompts. Some recording the what, where and when that made up our Christmas and others, like the one below, using the prompts to guide a more creative style of writing.
There are extra pages in the book and once I've finished sticking in bits of cards and wrapping paper, what ever takes my fancy, I will probably remove them. Having extra pages though has been good as I've been able to record any other little snippets that don't fit into my existing pages.
Like a discoveries page that details how these Prewetts gluten free Christmas tree shortbread biscuits are the best thing I tasted this Christmas. How I discovered that the toaster was broken as I started to prepare pitta breads for dips at the Christmas Eve party.
There it is done, just the last few prompts to add this weekend and then I guess I will have to take the decorations down.
