JYC Day 3 and 4

I actually have Day 6 and 7 done, too, but no pictures yet (still working on 5). The envelope for day three has my story of deciding not to send Christmas cards again this year - maybe. I keep waffling on this subject. I actually thought the drawing for Day 4 (shown first here) would make a good card, so maybe. Or not. I suppose I will let Father Time decide for me. I was so glad that today's entry, number seven, was to organize your to-do list. I ran errands today and it was perfect timing. Considering I only had five hours of sleep last night, I really should be off to bed. Am I catching up with the holidays, or are they catching up with me?

Day 2

Look at me, two posts in two days! The topic for JYC was the weather, which has been pretty warm around here for this time of year. No jacket needed in the afternoon, which makes me a little sad. Cloudy, cold weather please; it feels more like Christmas that way!

And I found this disturbing site last night in Max's bedroom. Another example of why bear's shouldn't drink.

JYC and December Daily, Round Two

Despite the fact that I am still trying to finish my December Daily album from last year, I am attempting both Journal Your Christmas and December Daily again this year. I used the JYC prompts mostly as an art journal last year, and it was so much fun (I did complete that one!) I have opted for the art journal format again this year. Last year I altered a Little House on the Prairie book (it was a Christmas themed one, so the cover was perfect), but this year I have  slightly altered the strata. I have a couple hundred loose vintage book pages left over from another project, so I gessoed those individually, then sewed them into a folded felt cover. Super duper easy, tote-able, and doesn't take up much space on my desk. I also like how I can fold the pages all the way back, unlike a hardcover book. Today's theme is the manifesto. I'd like to think of it more as an invitation. You are cordially invited to view my entries throughout the season. I'd like to say that I will post them daily, but I don't think that could ever be a reality. We'll see. At least, here is day 1.
