Journal Your Christmas Part 2

As promised, here is the second part of my Christmas journal. I have to admit to being rather behind on it, but once the girls break up from school on Thursday I hope to have more time to catch up.
 Day 4 is about what would make Christmas perfect for you. For me, a perfect Christmas would be to see it snow on Christmas Day.  I have never ever seen it and just once would be wonderful.  There is a strong chance that it just might happen this year, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

 Day 5 was my own choice of topic. I chose to write about the chaos of decorating the house at Christmas. We have three Christmas trees in our house and it seems to take forever to decorate them.  They look lovely when they are done but it does cause a lot of stress and mess in our house.  The girls did  a lot of it this year, if fact they decorated all three trees whilst listening to the Christmas CD's.
 Day 6 - I wanted to show an old fashioned Advent Calender, like the ones I was given as a child. We never had ones with chocolate in back then. We just opened a box to a pretty Christmas scene. One of my most favourite ones was a colouring in one. It was  a cross section of a three storey house on Christmas eve and each day you had to colour in another part of it. I wish I could find a copy of it. Talking of colouring, does anyone remember those huge Doodle Art pictures you used to get in a tube. There was only one picture in it, but it was huge and very detailed and it came with some Berol colouring pens, which I still buy today for my girls.
 Day 7 - Things still left to do for Christmas. That was my list as of the seventh of December. I am working my way through it slowly!
 Day 8 - I wanted to show my door wreath and I am really pleased with how the picture came out.  In fact this is my favourite page so far of this journal. 
 I love these little wreath eyelets. I paid 50p for six of them from The Works.
Day 9 - shows my dining room table waiting for the Christmas celebrations to begin. I always have a runner and a candle display on my table during December. 

I will hopefully be able to show you some more pages next week. If I manage to get my finger out and get them done. Aargh! Not enough hours in the day, ladies, not enough hours.!

  6. How beautiful. I'm sure these journals will be treasured forever. I hope you get your wish for snow on Christmas day - didn't it snow where you are last year? It did here in Newcastle but then I suppose we are a lot further north than you.
