Journal your Christmas

I am taking a class called Journal your Christmas this month. It is all about capturing and holding onto what is important to you during the Holiday season.

I am choosing to document my discoveries in a Journal/scrapbook.  I thought I would share my progress here. SOme days I may even just make a blog post. Their are no rules- love that!

Here is my first days work

Hear is a photo of the full layout. The December calendar page I plan on adding little notes to throughout the month as I do Holiday events - today I made cookies with a friend so wrote that on.

Here is a close up of my "Christmas manifesto". Just a list of thoughts and ideas of what I would like to focus on this year.

And This page I did cause I was excited and it was fun! I was also thinking of the instructor's email that told us to think about signs of Christmas. This is a divided page protector - The top left is Shimelle's (the instructor) Manifesto printed 3 X 4. to the right is a close up of our tree this year, lower left is my youngest 2 children helping to hang outdoor lights, their first year to help, and the final pocket is just fun bits, sequins and wood veneers sewn into the pocket to create a snowglobe effect.

Not everyday will be so detailed, some days will just be a bit of journaling or some pics.  I am sure I will not have an entry for everyday but that is okay.  I plan on adding to this book over the years as the fancy strikes me.  What are your plans for this Season?  What do you want it to look like?


My baby boy is 12 today!  I put together a little slide show of pics of him from 2 -12.
