Goodies in the post

Did I mention a few weeks ago that I won some goodies off Scrapbook Trends Facebook page? Well they arrived in the post the other day. Echo Parks Wintertime Pack. So Cute!
Double sided paper, journaling cards, alphabets and sticky diecuts. Can't wait to use them...only problem is it has been on average 25-30 degrees around here so I'm not really into scrapping wintery pages at the moment. Never mind, I shall save it all until about July/August and hopefully I can go and find some snow somewhere to play in.

Now I've made the big decision...even though I still haven't finished my Christmas Journal (and I would have had a few more pages done if I could have got to the photo shop to print some stuff) I am going to do a Document 2011 album. I think it will be a good way to really get me back into the swing of things like taking regular photos, thinking about things that happen each month and basically having a scrapping timetable to stick to. So number one aim over the next 2 weeks...get as much of my Christmas Journal done before I start my January pages. I've gathered a few supplies already and just waiting for some other bits to arrive so will show you in the next few days what I'm planning to do.

And note to self...maybe be really brave and investigate an online photo printing place.

Back to Reality

Happy belated New Year!! Well we're home again and pretty much back to normal again. We had a fabulous holiday and I'll share some photos soon. I just wanted to get back into the swing of writing on here again. Our doggy and pussycat were very pleased to have us home again and have been sticking close to us all weekend. I have so much I want to accomplish in the next few weeks....finish my Christmas Journal, start a One Year month by month album, Do something clever with all my holiday photos, experiment with a couple of sewing ideas I've had and start getting back into a really healthy routine. I started with a walk yesterday morning and if I move my butt now I can go for another one this morning before I need to get cracking into my day. So I'll be really good and leave it here until I organise something interesting to look at.
