Have Yourself a Crafty Little Christmas/ Journal Your Christmas Preparations

And, just like that, November was gone in a flash. So many projects going and so little time! But, with Thanksgiving passed and the home reno projects drawing to a close (for this year anyway), I am starting to bring Christmas into my home little by little. And one of the projects that I have enjoyed for the past several years is a December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas style mini album in December. I love recording my Christmas memories, and it is a great way to use up some of that holiday stash that I always have trouble resisting. So, I make a kit of supplies from my stash. This year, I based my kit on a mood board that I made up on Pinterest, full of vintage yumminess:

I loved the whites, creams, sparkling gold and silvers, pink, forest green, red, and little touches of mint green. Crate Paper and October Afternoon make lovely vintage papers, so I knew that that would be the perfect place to start looking in my stash. Here is the kit that I came up with:

My kit is ready, as I eagerly await Shimelle's first prompt!
