How Long Have I been Missing?

Almost 4 weeks since I posted, the longest pause since I started my blog back back in 2008. The reason I have not been posting is that I have not been crafting either.
All of my crafty stash has been boxed up for the past month in the spare room while my kitchen has been refurbished.  I normally craft in there and store my craft materials there too.  Now the kitchen is nearly finished, and much of my stash is away, I am almost ready to begin crafting again.
As it is almost December, I thought I would share my materials that I will be using for my Christmas Journal.  Number 9 this year!!

 I have it all crammed into a 12x12 RUB in an effort to keep everything under control this year!

There is a tray on top for embellishments, and papers, stickers, stamps and letters are underneath.

I will be using a random selection of letters..

lots of stamps (some old, some new)...

Papers by Basic Grey (25th and Pine; one of their final Christmas kits)

dies to cut out my numbers (Can't believe I haven't prepared these yet)

and stickers that match the papers.

My journal will be a Simple Stories 6x8 like last year, but it isn't ready yet.
Hope the kitchen gets finished next weekend so I can get started on time.

Hope the kitchen got finished without any hold ups.
