Dear Secret Santa (via Carmens santa swap),
I need to be put in the naughty corner with Paige, as on saturday
THIS WONDERFUL PARCEL arrived for me, from you.
I tried SOOOOO hard to resist but it was packaged so temptingly and squeezing and shaking revealed nothing, my will power is non existent, so I was a very bad girl and I opened it!
Will you forgive me if I tell you how fan-tab-oulsly wonderful your gift was???!!!
I was blown away with the thought and effort you had put into my gift and the beautiful letter you wrote me.
Your handcrafted Smash style art journal you made for me is fantastic!!I love it, I love all of it and can't wait to use it. You also attached a pencil case full of goodies to the book, sent a golden dragonfly (my totem animal) added a big crafy 'S' for me to decorate and sent me an awesome Tracy Bunkers book on hand stamping. I think I got the best secret santa...sssh, don't tell anyone that! I hope I get to find out who you are in the New Year so I can send you a personal thank you.
Thank you so much, you made my day, week, month!!
I am so sorry if I have disapointed you by opening it early, but I am the same very year, I just can't wait for nought!!!
Confession done, hopefully apology accepted and no coal in my christmas stocking, here are days 1-6 of my JOY album.
I am struggling a bit with this as other years I have done it scrapbook/mini book style with the latest xmas papers and embellies. I have to keep reminding myself that this year its not about looking pretty, its an honest and true (and somedays boring!) acount of my December, in an art journal style as I get to stressed trying to keep up everyday when Im trying to make it perfect!
