Journal Your Christmas

Last year I attended the Shimelle Journal Your Christmas class for the first time. I enjoyed the process – though I probably bit off more than I could chew – making it too big, and time consuming

Given the way I feel right now, so totally not into the whole Christmas thing, I was not even sure that attempting it this year is the right thing to do.

But – yes there is always a but!! 🙂

I know that I will be disappointed in myself in the future if I don’t at least have a go at it. So with that in mind I pulled out last years album.


The munchkins begged to have a look as soon as they saw it. Pretty hard to miss with that bright red cover!

They sat in the lounge for quite a while, really enjoying the experience of looking through the album. After all the oohing and ahhhing it was decided there and then. It really did need an attempt. Seeing them enjoying reading about the past, laughing over their photo’s from last year and commenting about how everyone had grown and changed, how could I not?

Hopefully I can do it justice. Even if I am not feeling it, this time is a season in our lives and needs to be recorded – the good, the bad and everything in between.
