Trees present and past.

Day 11 of my "Journal Your Christmas" is always about the Christmas tree. This year we put up our big tree for the first time in several years, and I used all my old ornaments, as I mentioned before, plus gold ribbon and the snowflakes my Grandma Clark crocheted for me about ten years ago.

This page has a fold-out page protector--the side with the tree photo folds out, allowing for two more photos:

Day 12 is about Christmases of the past...I found an old Christmas tree photo from the 1970s on Flickr, and used that as a jumping-off point for writing about the homemade star that was on top of our tree through my early childhood years. My mom made it from cardboard and tin foil, and I've been trying to find one like it (which is of course impossible) my whole adult life.

The two pieces for Day 12 fit into the back side of the Day 11 page protector. I love having all these different sizes and configurations to play with.
