Got the Blahs...

I am really missing these guys...

And this guy, lots and lots today. Not feeling very with it, or together, and definitely not feeling like I am coping at all. I can feel myself sliding down....
I have made a good start on my Daily December album...

But it seems to be taking me forever! I had to re do the front cover. Wich pinged me off no end. I used that gorgeous MM glitter paper, and then had to toss it in the bin cause the Mod podge wouldn't play nice GRRRR.

Just a few pages....
I even tried to re cycle some packaging...that black and white polka dot page is from a Prima packet...does that help justify my scrap spending??? LOL
Not real sure about what to leave space for, as in true Kirsty style, I have NO clue what day anything is happening in Decmber. I have decided though to make a few extra envelope pages and a few little accordion albums for those days when I need more space than I have allowed.
I love the transparency page, and can't help but hope that we do nothing that day so it can stay tantalizingly see through...hinting at the adventures for the next day...
So thats all I have really done so far...better get a wriggle on with this, cause December is soon people SOON!
Apparently my first ever published LO is in the latest Christmassey Scrapbooking Memories... I am definitely going to have to break my 'no mags' rule this month!

Sorry to hear you are feeling down. I know how you feel being so far away from family. Perhaps we should get together for some scrapping one day next week - your place or mine - whatever suits you.

Congrats on the layout in SBM. Got my copy yesterday. Love it!!
