Journal Your Christmas

Hello hello. I know it's January and the holidays are long gone, but here's my December book that I made for Journal Your Christmas. I did a page a day from December 1-31 and even though a lot of the pages were super fast – stick, write and be done – I'm so happy I stuck to it and finished. It doesn't have to be perfect and pretty. It tells the little stories of our holiday season as parents, and records Christmas memories that Lo can laugh at later. Like how she ended up eating all the cookies we left out for Santa.

  1. What a beautiful journal that you made. I also made one for december, but I have to finish 2 days. I know this is something our kids will truly cherish someday.

  2. Adorable Jen, this is really really great. I love its "simplicity", even though you can tell you put alot of work into it anyway, and I love the mox of supplies you used. You've definitely inspired me to do this next year. Awesome work girl!

  3. i never noticed your list of concerts on the side of your blog!
    We have very much the same taste in music!!!

    Love the mini album.

  4. Looove this album! :D Thank you oh so much for all the inspiration :) And a wish you a vary happy start to the new year :D Johanna

  5. Hey Jen!

    I'm a stalker of your blog and this is my first comment, I think. :) Sorry it's been so long and i've never said Hi. I really enjoy your style and all the fun things you do with little Lo. This post reminded me that I've been meaning to contact you and see if I could get your recipe for cinnamon ornaments. Those looked so fun, and sound yummy-smelling! I'd love to try it out next year with my son. Thanks!

    Take care!
