Five Day Fail!

Well despite my best efforts at keeping up with my JYC pages I am well behind, not only in creating the pages, but in sharing them on the blog and forum.  These were completed one day earlier this week and the principle of KISS pages is working well; it's just finding the crafting time that is not!

JYC 2010 - Dec 5th - Jimjams

Day 5 was on topic, but for the 6th, rather than contrast two aspects of Christmas, I used the page to contrast with the previous one and think about Advent Calendars when I was small.

Vaguely back on prompt for the next two days with Day 7, documenting my geeky way of organising the family Christmas fund (well with £961, donated by 10 couples, to spend between 34 individuals, I need all the organisational tools I can get!)  Day 8's sight of the season is a photo across a local field - that's not snow - it's frost - possibly rime, or hoar, or a combination!

Finally Day 9's subject is the increasingly "traditional" Christmas Market which seems to be creeping across from the continent.  We visited these a lot when we lived in Holland and they are gaining in popularity over here now.

I may be failing to keep up; I may be failing to share my pages regularly; I am, however, having a great time creating quick and simple pages :o)

AND you are getting all your important Christmassy jobs done too, so I think that definitely counts as "keeping up"! I love your journaling about the advent calendars - in our thrifty house my mum used to iron down the doors again so we could use the same calendar the following year! Obviously she was not thrilled with the introduction of chocolate filled calendars..

Love the common theme of the kraft paper with the colorful white/green/red patterned paper! It's a fabulous look I'll have to steal sometime. Also, I need to remember to use my corner rounder. It does add something quite trendy & fun to your pages! I'm also far behind ... would rather cruise blogs this morning than catch up on my JYC. I'm 4 days behind, now! ACK!

The pages are so beautiful and clever! Remember, there is no 'keeping up' or 'falling behind' in this project :-)
