Not much creating although I have been busy( last few posts). To the right of the desk is an art journal page ( yesterdays post). In the middle some inches and twinchies from my sister ( we did a swap ) .

 Theses are the ones she made for me - aren't they fab?

To the left of my desk is a Bo Bunny Misc Me journal with some blank sleeves. I decided to make a December daily journal ( my first one) this year - I am hoping I will be able to get it done - December is always SO busy at home and at school- even if i just remember to jot a few things down and take daily photographs , I shall be pleased. I might start to get the page backgrounds ready but need to look at others to see HOW I want to do it. Any ideas or links to examples would be gratefully received.

If you would like to join in with the desk hop, pop over to see Julia's blog for all the info.

  1. I am always tempted by December Daily, but it's always so busy that it tends to fall by the wayside pretty quickly., I feel sure if I managed ONE I would be able to carry on doing them, but then I also think oing ONE would be enough :)
    Cute inchies!

    not late, for a change!
    Happy WOYWW!

  2. Oh I do a Journal Your Christmas every year, I've had some more successful than others if I'm honest and I really must crack on with this years! Loving the items on your desk and that pink mat - fabulous!

  3. Lovely swap pieces from your sister.
    I'm still trying to get my Christmas planner sorted LOL so wont be attempting a journal for the holidays.
    Annette (Voodoo Vixen at Scrap happens here) has done some lovely ones in the past if you want to go and browse.

  4. Hi Sue. Good luck with your daily journal....I'd not manage many days in Dec cos life is so hectic here so will be watching with interest to see how many you manage :-)

  5. That December Daily sounds good. Now would I keep it up is the question? Good luck with yours, I am sure you will do it each day.
    Love the inches and twinchies, especially the tree twinchie.
    Now to check what you have been up to before this post.
    Hugs, Neet 24 xx

  6. I started a December Daily a few years ago and it is still sitting in my Christmas basket...lonely and never finished. Just always so very busy this time of year!

  7. I had to look up twinchies, though I suspected what they were! I love these little squares - they're so versatile! Have a lovely week! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #33

  8. those twinchies are so cute, Vicky (#20)

  9. Saying I love your sister's twinchies sounds so very, very wrong....... ;-) But they are fab, I really like them, lol!!

  10. Love the inchies and twinchies, I love using them in a mosaic type format on cards. I'd never attempt a December journal, I'd fall by the wayside by day 2! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xxx

  11. I love the swap pieces your sister made!

    Greetings, Sofie #17

  12. Love your inches and twinches, Sue what a lovely collection to receive.
    I used to do December journals every year but haven't for a few years, might have to get back into it again, they are great to look back on. I'm sure there will be examples out there, I think I first saw one in a magazine, but I'm going back a bit. Pinterest might be a good place to look.
    Have a good week.
    hugs Lisax #16

  13. The inches and twinchies look lovely. Good luck with your December journal. Barbxx

  14. Love your swaps. Good luck with the December daily, I wouldn't have a chance - I remember when Tim Holtz used to do his 12 tags that was hard going! Helen #1

  15. Hi I have been making a December journal for several years & have my papers ready for this year! Hope you find the time to do yours I can recommend it as great fun. Ali #4

  16. Hi Sue, if I get stuck with the new mosaic thingy I'll be round for some ideas. I saw it and thought it looked interesting but not sure when I will use it. You wont be disappointed with the Lavinia stamps they are lovely and all go together so well, Tracy is good with her designs. Daily journal sounds a bit like hard work but a good idea if you can keep it up... I will expect to see the results Lol! Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

  17. Goid luck with your Dec daily I know I'm not the type to do one daily and your sis made some sweet inch/twince the little bird on is my fave
    Hugs Nikki 5

  18. I get to about the 15th of December and fall off the wagon - I'm ot good at journalling, it feels very self conscious, and then I use that as my excuse to not find the 15 minutes or so a day. I wish you luck and just know that you'll be more tenacious! I love that you swap with your sister....my crafting sister has reached into fabric and design..a place that I am unable to go, so our swapping days are over!!

  19. December Daily - what a great idea!! If I were a better journaler I'd try it, but, I am terrible at it! Thanks for sharing!!Have a great week, Ginny # 12

  20. I have made a christmas journal every year since 2007, and have managed to keep up with them all. I do use Shimelle's prompts but not every day, sometimes they give me ideas of what to write, other times I just include what I have been up to on that day.
    I keep up by making sure most of my kit is ready to go before the first. If i don't get time on the day then I just make a few notes and put them to one side until the weekend.
    It is an effort, but when I look at my journals from 8 year ago when my son (who is in his late teens now) was only 9, I am so glad I made them.
    All of mine are posted on my blog.
