When it comes to crafting, there really is no 'last minute' anything, at least not for me. I need time to get my creative juices going and can't just come up with some new project on the fly. Lately, I have been working on a cardboard Christmas album to give to one of my friends. I made one for myself a few years ago and it is soo fun to look back on a Christmas past. You can find these albums in the dollar spot at Michaels. (not yet decorated, of course)
I try really hard to add pages for things other than photos. There is so much more to the holiday besides the pictures.
There are gift tags and favorite holiday recipes and music.
There are wish lists and traditions and the family Christmas tree.
There are all those family 'funnies' and mishaps that make the holiday so memorable.
I want to capture every moment. The journaling only adds enrichment to the project and the process.
