Hurray! It's almost time to Journal My Christmas!
In fact, I have the first prompt for December sitting in my inbox right now. I am exercising extreme will in not tearing into it right now. I have a very good reason you see. Because right now, I'm sharing my very first holiday journal!
Oh yes, say hello to my little classic Christmas album. I used some delicious Making Memories red paint to pretty up a Maya Road binder. And then I filled it with patterned papers from Making Memories, Teresa Collins and one sheet from Girls Paperie.
I am so proud of myself for using up some of my precious "stash." I went with a really classic red/green Christmas look, because the book is very much focused on the holidays. This is in contrast to my December Daily book which has a totally different vibe (still editing photos on this one.. hopefully up later tonight).
Also, if I don't finish it this year it will still be totally relevant next year. I used up at least three different Making Memories collections in this book, and I'm quite happy to see they all go together. Note to Making Memories: keep it up. I like the fact that this stuff keeps coordinating.
The cover of my book is still unfinished, but I have a little done for now, so I'll call it good until I get some more time. Ignore the paint that got splotched on that front paper... I'll be covering it up later. ;)
4x6 is such a lovely and manageable size. I'm super excited to get crafting with this thing.
Here's the plan. There will be no stressing. There will be mistakes, but I will work around them. I will have fun. I will celebrate the holidays and document them in this cute little book. I may or may not use pictures. I will use my own handwriting (and probably a typewriter) and really really focus on journaling.
Are you excited? I totally am.
Now off to get those photos of my December Daily book posted. Mwahahahaha.
