Not only has another Wednesday come around super fast but tomorrow is December!  What happened to November? Kids are super happy that it is the 1st tomorrow!  They can't wait to start on their advent calendars, well the younger 2 are anyway!
Time to divulge what is laying on your desks today courtesy of our leader Julia. If you would like to play along you can grab all the details and links here!
So onto my desk, I am working on my December Daily.

Ali Edward's December Daily is appearing on lots of blogs this year.  I tried to make one a couple of years ago but only managed up to page 3!  This year I am determined to make it work!  
What went wrong last time was I didn't have my album made up ready so although I took lots of photos it was well after Christmas before I had the chance to do anything with them. Trouble is, after Christmas is, well after Christmas, it was all too late! For some reason I don't enjoy making Christmas things after Christmas, by then I am all Christmased out!
I am making my album up as far as I can with lots of pages inside but with book rings so that the pages can be moved around and other things added. 
The papers are Simple Stories 25 days of Christmas, very appropriate,  very vintage, love them!
Thanks for dropping by, have a fab Wednesday!

Those papers are gorgeous, all vintage chic. I love these kinds of prints which is odd really as my taste leans towards outright blingy sparkles as well. Maybe it's my crafting yin/yang!!

Lovely papers, don't think I could cut into them if it was me! I didn't make it over here last week, so I looked back at your old posts.... think I need to shut up about our paltry little dusting of snow, lol!! Nothing beats a real Christmas tree IMO!

I would never find time to do such a detailed journal, but I do admire what you have done. The colours and everything are so warm and comforting for this time of year. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. the cake recipe will be up tomorrow if you have any time to play with that, but I must warn you that it is very rich and sticky.

Gorgeous papers, Deb! Lovely colour scheme. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. As far as altering my jumpers is concerned, it's a case of needs must - I got so fed up with sleeves being too long, knitting rolling up because no ribbing etc. I decided I wouldn't wear them unless I got on with it! I feel really satisfied I've done it now, much as I hate mending or altering anything - I'd much rather be creating.

Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #62
