Journal Your Christmas, Day 17

I know it looks crooked, but it's really not. The sequined light bulb embellishment strip (something I got as part of a swap about 5 years ago ... and loved ... and NEVER managed to find a use for!) is a bit on the bulky side, so it raises up one half of the page with the scan. I went a little nuts with dots on this one, but I was just having so darn much fun!

Here's the journaling: "Last year, I was tripping over things that I thought people would really love to receive as a gift, but this year, very few things are grabbing at me. Maybe it’s our new limit of $20 a person … maybe it’s just market trends … or maybe I’ve just outdone myself in years past & have such a high threshold that it’s hard to meet it! Still, I feel like I’ve gotten (or made) some things for people that I think they will really enjoy, possibly even treasure."

i am sure people with treasure your gifts you have a knack for picking out the perfect gift (like pink fuzzy socks)

If what you make is anything like your scrapbook I'm sure they will be very much appriciated by those who receive them.
