Christmas crafting already?

As well as the Balzer Designs journalling course, I am also doing other crafts including my first preparations for Christmas.  I love decorating our house with homemade christmassy things and each year I like to find new crafts to do.

To make a start, at my local craft group this week I decoupaged a christmas bauble:
  (Apologies for the picture quality, taken late at night - in real life it looks much better!)
 It has lots of my 'christmas scraps' added to it and also some punchinella, sequins and washi tape.
Glitter glue was added as a final touch.

Onto day 3 of my '30 days in your journal' course and I am still having fun 'getting messy', despite the problem I have had with my masking tape (I have found a different brand to try on the next page).

Today we added an image, which could have been a photo of ourselves, but I chose to add this:

A background of orange with yellow flourishes and a magazine picture of a wild horse. It seemed to tie in with my 'Feeling the fear' theme.  The page is looking pretty full now but I do believe that we will be adding even more to it tomorrow....

Thanks for looking and for any comments,

I'm playing with tree trinkets at the moment, so it's definately not too early for Christmas ;) The page is looking fab, I love it. Have you thought of using micropore tape, it gives a slightly different finish but works well. xx

Thanks for that suggestion Happy Days, think I will try that. Wonder if you can get it in wider strips?

Your journal is really coming along! I was thinking about starting the course myself so it's good to read about how other people have found it.

Great idea with the micropore tape, I would never have thought of that. Your journal's coming along great. And as for the "C" word - I'm going for the Ostrich approach, if I sing la la la loud enough and stick my fingers in my ears it won't happen LOL Jaqui x
