The Weather today was ....

The weather was cold today, overcast and wet.... but hey, that is what you have to love about the UK. I do believe it is the weather that gives the British Isles its character....
I am not one for hot, humid weather, maybe that is why I have settled in here so quickly. I prefer the rain, and the cold. It is fresh and crisp.

Today on Shimelle's journal your Christmas, the prompt was to journal about the Weather, how it makes us feel, what we like, what we want Christmas to be like. Well you can guess what I want, I want a White Christmas, just like all the white Christmases I have seen on TV, and on Christmas Cards LOL.... Maybe we will get just that...

So far I have managed to keep up to date with the class, okay, well, it is only two days so far, I have been lucky, because I am at home having a little break from work and doing what I love the most, scrapping, blogging and blopping... Not sure what is going to happen when I go back to work next week. I will just have to play catch up over the weekends.
I went clothes shopping for me today, it took 3 hours, only for me to return with 4 items. Mind you , I nearly came home empty handed. I hate shopping for clothes, it depresses me and I always look frumpy in the mirror. In a space of a half an hour I finally decided to bite the bullet and walk into Anne Harvey ( it is a shop for the fuller, larger than life girls her in the UK ), her line of clothes are a little bit on the expensive side, but the fit is flattering and perfect for our curvy bodies.

Guess how I justified my spend, with Scrapbooking !!!! I kid you not, all the way through the store I was thinking, Brenda, stop been so stupid, why is it that you do not even flinch when you shop for 'stash' and you spend oodles on paper, yet you too scared to pay for a couple of items of clothes ! When I started adding up what I have spent on scrap stuff over the last 3 months, I flinched ...

SO, I am officially on a stash diet, and have made a resolution to spend what I spend on my stash on me, on clothes instead.. Well, I will let you know how long it lasts okay...

Now back to business....

This is my entry for Day One of JYC. My manifesto is folded up and in the pre-made pocket that I did for my day one page.
My Day Two page is made out of acetate, first time ever I have used acetate as a page, still a little perturbed about the mess on the back, so I will figure that out too.

I've been "no buy" for awhile now, you'll be surprised what can make with what you have! :) Nice pages! Cool on the acetate! Yes, takes a bit of planning, like doing 2 pages at once!

Great pages! I esp. love the one on acetate!

I know what you mean about shopping for clothes...both the depression and the sticker shock, LOL.

Lovely JYC pages. Really liking the acetate page. In the past when I have done LOs on acetate I have used PP on the other side just over the back of where the other shows(hope that makes sense?)
