Christmas Scrapbooking Project


I know, I know, we still have a few months to go before Christmas arrives, bringing with it the inevitable decking out the house with sprigs of holly and fairy lights, last-minute present buying, scoffing all the orange ones out of the Roses tin and arguing over christmas cracker goodies... but this year, I want to be thoroughly prepared. You see, I absolutely adore Christmas, but I am never the best prepared when it comes to my favourite time of year. I'm always last to buy presents, often forget to buy cards (oops) and am just generally disorganised. Not this year! I love Christmas so much, I definitely believe in going all-out for it, so I'm determined to make this year the best Christmas ever!

A few weeks ago I was sent an amazing Christmas scrapbooking kit from Getting Personal in order to help me get thoroughly prepared for the Christmas season. Over the next few weeks I intend on sharing my progress with you, and hopefully I will be able to give you a few ideas of how to get prepared for Christmas. I'm hoping to share yummy Christmas recipes, my attempt at crafting Christmas cards and decorations, present ideas and lots of other lovely bits and pieces. I'm hoping to document it all in the lovely 'Christmas Survival Guide' Getting Personal sent me so that I have something to help me through Christmases for years to come as well!

Are you excited about Christmas?! Who's written their list to Santa yet?

  1. I've been thinking about Christmas too, I'm normally the Grinch until a couple of weeks beforehand but I've decided preparation is key this year!
    The sooner I start getting presents the less it will dent my bank balance - genius I know!!
    Cute set you've got here.

  2. Oh god I love Christmas with a passion. At work, the team would fear for the moment it was my turn to have my iPod on the office speaker dock because of the smattering of Christmas songs that lurk on my playlists! Love the idea of a Christmas scrapbooking set! xx

  11. I need your help. I'm searching the web for people with an interest in fairies. My friend has captured a fairy and has posted a blog to get advise, but everyone is telling him to let the fairy go. We can't let this happy. I need everyone to visit his blog and help me convince him to keep the fairy. Thanks. "captivefairy.blogspot.com"

  12. I love this! I definitely want to get organised too, I'm on the lookout for a cute little notebook I can use to plan everything! Looking forwards to some more Christmassy posts too:)I want to do the same but I thought people might think it's a little early. Personally I think it's fine to start now especially if your hand-making stuff. I'm doing a Bloggers Secret Santa too if you're interested :) http://bit.ly/NhGBSr

  13. I'm so excited for christmas, I prefer the build up to it with the decorations and songs and it getting colder than the actual day. I like stores decorating for christmas and eating mince pies haha.
