December Daily/JYC Day 1

Happy December everyone!  Can you believe it's only 24 days until Christmas?!!!  I know the next few weeks are going to fly by, so last night I thought that I'd make a head start on the prompts for Journal your Christmas.  In fact, that's what I love about doing JYC in conjunction with a December Daily album...you can mix things up, do the prompts out of order if you want/need to (especially if you're having your photos printed in one bulk order)...and you have something to inspire you on those December days when you've tried to catch up on laundry.  Perfect.
 
A couple of quick words on my system: I'm doing an internship, a part-time job and a Masters at the moment...so I know that I won't be able to stay ahead of the prompts for long.  On some days I will post multiple pages...but there will likely be long gaps in between.  But that's ok, because as I keep reminding myself, live first and document second.  A combination of the big freeze, winter weather and a basement flat mean that daylight is scarce in my neck of the woods, so I won't photograph the actual album in its entirety until it's pretty much finished (or at least half way through).  I think I'll try and post a picture of the foundation page as well, because a little 'before and after' action is always fun: 


And last but not least, thank you for your wonderful comments and  words of encouragement - they never fail to make my day :)
