December 1st!!

Hooray! It's December! I can finally start decorating for Christmas! WOOT!

After a long weekend of traveling, I'm pretty exhausted. I shouldn't really be, but I am. Who knows. Thanksgiving was great, it was so good to see Jordan's family in Pittsburgh. I got to visit with Julie and my wonderful little "niece" Olivia. Naturally, I had plans of taking a bajillion photos of everything, and then didn't snap a single one! Oy! LOL!

This December, I'm working on a project with a bunch of friends from the Sweet Shoppe. We're following along with Ali Edwards "December Daily" project. Documenting the things that we do through the holiday season. Many people are doing it as more of a "Holiday Daily" and started on friday, to document all the things that are done throughout the holiday season. I am starting today, and will go a little ways into January as well, to document our time spent with Jordan's family over New Year's (we spend New Year's with whichever side of the family we don't see at Christmas).

I also signed up for another class, that is a December Daily in a different way. It's called "Journal Your Christmas" and is run by a woman named Shimelle. You can click away to read more about it :)


I need to download and read today's prompt still. I wasn't planning on using a photo for today, but then as I was driving home through the rain, I saw a double rainbow!! SO COOL! So I had to snap a few shots of that, luckily my point-and-shoot was in purse :) I'll get that one posted tomorrow. I like Ali's approach in that she doesn't do anything for that day until the end of it, or the next. You can't do it before it's happened, you know? :)

Aside from that, life is good. Work is still busy, and now I've got all kinds of holiday projects to work on. Unfortunately I've also been sucked into the world of Twilight, not that I'm surprised. I get this way with books. Especially good books. I just get so wrapped up in the story, that I can NOT put it down to work on something else! Even worse with a series of books. Thank goodness I read Harry Potter last summer (in just a few weeks), I got NOTHING else done while I was reading those! LOL! Thankfully, I'm on the last book now. It'll definitely be done in a few days. I swore I wasn't going to read any tonight, and then I read 145 pages. I figured I would read while ACDSee unzipped my goodies from the digi sales this weekend. And naturally, once that was done (all of like 10 minutes, had to do it 3 times to get them all saved everywhere I needed) I was a goner. Thankfully this last book is broken into small sections. Not that it matters, the first section ended with such a freaking cliff hanger I'm DYING to get through the next section and get back to the first character (that was probably confusing, lol, sorry). See! I'm even rambling when I WRITE about Twilight!! I never should've resisted so long, what a fool I was! LOL!

Ok, ok, enough is enough. I have scrappy stuff to do! Have a great night, I'll hopefully be back tomorrow :)

Can't wait to see some of your December projects!

I'm that way with books though, but I haven't been sucked into Twilight (yet!). :)

I signed up for Shimelle's class too! :) Can't wait to see your pages!

Sounds like you've got lots of inspiration for blogging and scrapping this month! I wish I had time, maybe next year. We've had so many changes this year and I've already commited to a few projects so I need to finish stuff before starting any more... lol. Have a great day!

Great classes! I wish I'd signed up now, but I'll catch it next year. :) Can't wait to see what you do!

I love Shimelle's class. She gives some great prompts. I figure I'll end up with a mix of her prompts plus daily pages, which should make a nice well rounded album.

That sounds so fun. The only motivation I have right now is the urge to raid the ending machine downstairs. This does not bode well.
