Well there is truly no use trying to fight the urge. This girl's got holiday cheer running through her veins already. I would give all of my leftover halloween candy to hear just one Christmas song right now, but we have a rule around here-no holiday music until Thanksgiving dinner (and I haven't even cheated, though its been hard...the radio stations are already playing some!)
So maybe I can't listen to a little Silent Night or O Holy Night just yet, but I can start making my lists and checking them twice; one of those lists being scrapbooking supplies for my December album.
But let's get realistic for a moment, shall we? I loved working on last year's album so I want to make sure I can get to it this year (I even coordinated the colors of the album with the way I decorated the house...eek), but time is limited.
I need to make this as easy on myself as possible if I am actually going to make it work this season. With all of the work we're doing on the house and grad school I have time for little else. Plus, right smack dab in the middle of the holiday season my best friend is having a baby and Lord knows I am gonna want to spend time snuggling that sweet little thing too.
So what am I going to do to make it easy on myself?
Buy a kit.
Yup, that's right. So while I am mourning the loss of the experience of carefully selecting each paper to put into my album, I am looking forward to the new challenge.
Echo Park's Merry Christmas kit.
Simple, classic colors with a little touch of sass.
Basic Grey's Jovial
Not typical colors I would gravitate toward, but I am finding the eclectic nature of them appealing.
Basic Grey's Wassail Collection
Love the vintage feel of this one.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on these collections and if you have ever used one specific collection of papers for a certain project.
