Journal Your Christmas: Days 34, 35, 36, and 37

If you've hung with me up until this, the final post of my 2009 Journal Your Christmas album, then WOW! That's pretty cool, because I almost didn't make it until the end, and I was the one putting the thing together!!

If you're just now jumping in and want to see the other pages, click here for all the Christmasy goodness. :)

Day 34's assignment was to document our favorite memory from the past Christmas season. Honestly, out of all the fun little memories I couldn't pick just one, so I included everything. The photo was taken directly from this post.

For January 4th we were to document things about this Christmas that we wanted to remember for the next Christmas. I wrote to remind myself that I've already organized a bunch of stuff to make next Christmas easier. :)

For January 5th I was back in the attic taking photos of the tree after Darren helped me put it away. I love getting the Christmas stuff out, and then I really love how the house feels so much bigger when I put it away again.

January 6th- finally finished with my album!! It was a fun project, but I was definitely glad to be done with it. So that's mostly what I wrote about.

As a little extra, I put all of the Christmas cards we received in an 8x8 page protector at the back of the album.

In the end, my book was quite chunky- I like it!

This is my second Christmas journal and definitely the more elaborate of the two. I definitely want to do another one when Christmas rolls around again, but I think I will simplify it quite a bit next time. I'm thinking of using digital templates for photo placement and journaling, then printing those out and decorating them with patterned paper and a few embellishments. Ali Edwards has some great templates at Designer Digitals that would be perfect!
