JYC is going really well!!!!! As in, not at all.

Well, that's not strictly true.  I am posting photos on Instagram and Twitter (both under paperwoolthread) whenever I remember.  I am reading the posts and writing the odd journalling.  But, I have abandoned the idea of making a full journal. Apart from the fact that I couldn't decide on a size, life seems to have got in the way.  Oh well, can't be helped.  I am planning to do a few one off pages over the season and hopefully, I will get a chance to do some this week once I have finished making Christmas presents. Which, of course, I am behind on!

I have finished one though. It is a book that I made for my Grandad using photos that I had borrowed from him to scan.  I pulled together a few of my favourites so he has some photos of my nan in one place. Below are a few of the pages.

I used Graphic 45 Le Romantique papers which I absolutely love. The paper is great quality and I love the designs.

Right, off to finish painting the childrens pigs and make the parents xmas card.

Birthday Wishes

think this was xmas 1977
You would have celebrated 74 years today.
No doubt you would have been spoilt by the family.
There would have been nice food and a bit of alcohol.
There would have been Skype calls from me and mother.

You may not be with us but that doesn't mean that you are not celebrating. 
I am sure that you and Robin are celebrating in your way now.
No doubt with a glass in your hand :)
