JYC2011: Manifesto and December 01

Happy December First! This is the start of the crazy magical amazingly craft time of year that we all love and stress out about. Today I worked for 16 hours on a very big and high visibility project. So that didn't leave a lot of room for crafting. Fortunately, since I'm trying NOT to stress out about being behind (and also the fact that I made these pages last year), I am happy to share the start of my 2011 Journal Your Christmas class book. I'm really not sure if I've shared these before, but I hope you enjoy them.

The manifesto: a reminder to find the joy in every day this time of year. 

I made this with die cuts from my Slice, a martha tree punch, the lovely  manifesto image from Shimelle and labels from Fontwerks and Jenni Bowlin.

And page one. Look at that journaling! Yay!. 

Red gaffer tape from 7 Gypsies, paper from Teresa Collins' line from last year. A chipboard snowflake, basic grey basics label (which I stuck in a vintage typewriter) and a felted making memories embellishment help showcase that photo of a christmas card I made last year.

So, TGIF. I have an event tonight and I'll be going to Urban Craft Uprising and tree trimmng this weekend... I'm hoping to get crafty, but if not, I won't stress. :)

I'm working on my December daily. I started really working on it last night. My hand is hurting. It's fun though.

Love the new banner. I am so challenged in this area. Please tell me how do you do it?
