It's that time of year again...

...time for Shimelle Laine's "Journal Your Christmas" class! One entry every day from December 1 to January 6 (although I bailed right after Christmas last year)!

I found a small house-shaped album from 7Gypsies for this year's book. I took it off the spiral, and I'm covering up the spine holes with papers. Then once it's all done, I'll punch just three holes and bind it with binder rings.

I'm having my usual case of "cover block" on decorating the cover (I never did get last year's journal cover decorated!) But here's the entry for December 1. We're supposed to write our Christmas manifesto for this year, but I'm not really a manifesto kind of girl. So this is my laid-back, feel-good, non-lofty goal for Christmas this year:

My library date stamp, which I got in like, 2000, when they were all the rage, only has the years up to 2006. Chuh! So I'm just stamping the date and then the handy AM/PM option, for each day's entry. It didn't come out too clear, but it's off to the right near the bottom. Next time I'll remember to rock the stamp.

what an awesome idea

Love the house shaped book you're using and I like your version of the "manifesto". I struggled with the manifesto aspect a bit so didn't title my page as such. I had to chuckle at the date stamp only going as far as 2006. Clearly a design idea to make you go buy a new one that only lasts until like 2009 or something!

Wow! This looks awesome! I had such fun seeing your progress last year, I'm hyped for this one!

I bet you thought that date stamp would last forever--I know I did when I bought mine and I think it's about to "expire" too! Love the album already, Janelle. I'm doing a digital page per day...check it out!
Miss our "chats." Merry Christmas in advance!

Thanks for sharing a peek into your Christmas Journal. It is a fabulous idea to take a few minutes out of each day to remember all the best of the season. Like all your bright and happy colours.
