Finish Off January and SAD February

I finished my Christmas 2012 journal!  I had already done a page for each day using inks, paints and stamps, so decided to use the opposite page for a photo or two and some pretty paper.  I was really pleased to use up some older Christmas stash!  Here’s a few of the double page spreads:

I used old Christmas cards and other bits and pieces on some pages where I didn’t have a photo

And I will admit there are 1 or 2 pages that are not completed, but I am OK with that.  I have written everything I want to about Christmas 2012!

That wraps up my January craft goal, to finish off my 2012 album and JYC.  So what am I going to do in February?craft 012

I want to quilt my Little Town quilt and Tuscan Village scene, so I am going to try and sew everyday!  Remember LOAD (Layout a Day)?  Well, this is SAD, Sew a Day!  I know it should be Sew Every Day, but I prefer SAD to SED!

That looks like a very satisfying album to page through.

Can't wait to see it IRL.... Loving the SAD!! That reminded me of my mum - she hated February!!!!

How lovely and satisfying to have actually finished :). Have you woven those strips of paper together on that left-hand page? So very effective.

I like your idea of using Christmas cards for a no photo day - I am going to borrow and use that idea for my December album. Thanks.

Well done for finishing! And don't forget the knitting in Feb too!!!

love the look of your album....and I like the fact that you know you've recorded all you want to, even though you have a few extra pages!
