Okay, I was off today and made my 2008 Christmas Diary. I really enjoy looking back to see what I bought the year before, what I cooked for Christmas Dinner and it is pocket size. You can make the same type of album with a few envelopes, to hold your receipts.

Take a look for step by step directions.

This is what I started with...

A old bank book, I got in a box of treasures from a auction.

I took out the pages , to be used at a later date.

Then I cut pages to fit inside.

I used 5 sheets, it will give me 8 pages.

I punched 6 holes and stitched ribbon to hold album together.

Now glue down the first and last page to the album cover.

And cut card stock to cover front and inside cover.

Now embellish, your album.

My album is drying but below is last years Christmas Diary.

It is time for Jerri's Jingling Jubilee!
So put your jingle on and join me.
Just e-mail me .
Sunday December 7th @ 2.
We will complete 10 paper craft items.
one below....
Only 4 spaces left. As you know, we have been decoration for the Open House.

A friend brought a tree, helped me set it up and I stared at it for over a week.Then I went to a yard sale.
Bought a box or Christmas items.
All I saw was red balls on top.

But in the bottom of the box was patriotic items,
so I went with it .
What do you think?

Oh, I don't have any favorites. I just love buttons. All colors, all kinds. A good day of Junkin is a day I find a jar of buttons. I wouldn't know if I had expensive buttons, don't care really. I just keep filling up my jars.

Any reason to look at my buttons...I am in!

Check back for my favorites....

I got a new favorite today.
MY coffee cup had a crack and needed to go in the trash.
Of coarse, I have my favorites, doesn't everyone.
I have my favorite socks, I call them my sick socks. And when I am sick and cold I want them on my feet.
I have my favorite seat in the den, my favorite warm sweater, and my favorite blanket. I guess "favorite" has a lot to do with comfort.
And as the weather gets colder the more comfort I need.
My favorite cold winter day would have to be ...
a good cup of coffee, sitting in my favorite chair, with my sick socks on and curled up with my blanket watching a favorite movie.

Raise up your glasses to my big ole fat writers block, please.
That's right, when have you not heard me have something to say..
Nothing has happened this week in my world.
I sleep, I do laundry, I get kids ready for school and daycare, I throw them a pop tart, I run to the post office, the Dollar General, the bank and pick up the necessary things at the Pig. To work I go, then I rearrange, wait on customers, clean up the back room, pack items for the church's yard sale , that's today. I try to finalize the class I am teaching at Scrap Mania, that's today. I spend Tuesday at the ER with Mom, inner ear. Hubby worked late all week, miss him. Basketball practice on Wednesday night. All the time creating for Jerri's Jingling Jubilee. That's in December.
So nothing is exciting, or earth rattling.
So I have writer block.
So raise your glass, or coffee cup to a un- write-able week.

Thank you all....
Jill, I will bring them on Saturday.
And life at the WOOD house is still non stop.
This week was no exception.
I am decorating at the shop for our Christmas open house.
It just all seams to fall together...
we put up a big tree, and it is still standing there with nothing on it.
Nothing is coming to me.
Nothing, I am blank.....
We went to auction on Friday night.
Got a few pieces of odd furniture. That needed TLC.
We painted yesterday.
Terry is working all week.
This is Jessica week to work.
Grandson #1 is out of school for 2 days.
Yard sale at church on Saturday.
I am teaching a album class at Mania on Saturday.
Oh, and I bought my first Christmas present.
I even bought a bag and tissue.
Boy, at this rate I will be finished by April.
How's your week?
