I have been finding that when I sit down to journal about something in my Holiday journal, by the time I get the page decorated, I’ve forgotten what I wanted to journal about! I usually have pages ready to go in my daily journals, I just haven’t been taking the time to get this one ready to go.
Well, here are some pages decorated up ahead of time…
Some random bits and bobs pulled together out of a group I purchased from Peachy Cheap by October Afternoon, along with a few things from my stash.
Using things up that I have been holding on to for far too long is always a great feeling, especially when they have their own memories attached to them! The piece at the upper left is from some Christmas cards I made many, many years ago!
This journal is pretty small, so I went out and bought some small ink stamps. It’s been super fun finding little spots to use them in!
These mid century images really bring back a lot of Christmas memories for me, I think that is why I’m so drawn to them!
I remember not really appreciating this kind of decor when I was a child, but I love it now! But that lamp is a bit much, even for me! Wow, that’s special!
Overly flocked trees with handmade goodies! My husband is saying a Christmas prayer that I never go this far! But if you would like to visit somebody that does, follow this link to see what the “Queen of Christmas Kitsch”, the lovely Jennifer Perkins, has to offer. A never ending supply of eye candy, and lots more links from there!
Here is hoping your finding lots of wonderful Holiday memories to journal about!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
