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.
