I posted yesterday about how I had a lot of work to do on my Christmas journal due to being abroad most of December...
ShellyDee - thanks for the comment that you left on that post. It felt nice to know that I'm not the only one out there trying to get my journal done :) And I'm also very glad if my idea of planning for the remaining pages helped you too. :)
When I woke up this morning with a migraine I could have easily used that as an excuse to not getting started. Instead I took some medicine, waited for that to work (though I can feel it coming back now so I better get off this computer soon!) and then sat down with a paper, numbering it 8-31 for the days I have left in my journal.
Referring to my photos folders for the month of December made it rather easy for me to map out what subject + photos I wanted for each day. I spent the whole morning finding and picking my photos. I got a total of 39 photos for my journal. Some of these have two pictures to each photo as I wanted some smaller ones too.
Then, unfortunately, I spent most of this afternoon battling with ordering them from Photobox. The site just kept hanging on "checking out" no matter what I did. I have just now *finally* got my order confirmed - yay! :)
Positive: I feel really pleased that I made a good start on my journal despite easily having had a "good excuse" not to start today.
Negative: I'm absolutely exhausted from picking, editing photos and battling with the Photobox site today that there's no energy left for anything else scrapping-wise. Oh well. Let's focus on the positive :)
If you're doing a Christmas journal I would love to hear how it's gone for you? Finished? Lots left to do? If you are not finished, what are your best strategies for getting your journal done rather than taking the easy route of giving up?
