This will be my 13th year documenting December and for a very brief moment, I thought about not doing it. The on-going global pandemic will mean a December without us hosting our annual Christmas Drinks Party (a firm favourite), without The Brainy One and I spending a day Christmas shopping (which in reality means a good lunch and hot apple cider 🙂 ), without good friends coming to stay over the weekend of the Strictly final, without a trip into the West End for a Christmas show with those friends, without the three of us kicking off the beginning of the Christmas holidays by going for our traditional Panto-and-pizza afternoon/evening, without us being with our loved ones on Christmas Day and/or Boxing Day (most likely).
But with all those things, and more, missing from December, this year is actually the perfect time to document the festive season – a Covid-Christmas making Christmas 2020 like no other.
I’m using a 6×8 album from Simple Stories and journaling cards from the ever-fabulous In A Creative Bubble. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design. Embellishments will have come from the bottom of my festive stash. 🙂
I assembled and stitched a multi-pocket, just because. You can download the pocket instructions here.
I haven’t added any numerals yet, because it’s likely that I will switch the pages around as I go through December.
