Holiday Journal Sharings

The Holidays are behind us, but I finally finished my Holiday journal, thanks to my new habit of jotting down notes in a small notebook. So, before we get too far into the New Year…


I used up quite a few Christmas related items that I have been hanging onto for many years. The tag at the top left is from Christmas card makings 8 or so years ago.

I now own about 12 classic Christmas movies on dvd, I usually have them playing in the background all through December. “The Man Who Came To Dinner” is a particular favorite!

It just goes to show that if you hold onto something long enough, it will find a home…at least that’s what I tell myself!


I’m afraid my pages became much simpler as time marched on, it became a matter of wanting to get the memories down more than decorating.

That stamped piece at the bottom right is a leftover from the first annual Christmas card making session with my daughter. Something that is now a Christmas ritual, Love! And that sweet angel is from a wonderful package of Happy Mail from a dear friend Judy. Thank you Judy!

Memories upon memories, the best!


Just a few memories here, and a page decorated with the sweet Christmas Happy Mail from Jenny!

I am well and truly happy to say I finished this journal, it was a bit touch and go there for a while. I was contemplating sharing this next Christmas because of time constraints pushing it out so far into the New Year. But then, I’m thinking about starting a Throwback Thursday segment to add a little of my old blog into this one.  So, there’s an opportunity to share a couple of past Holiday journals next Christmas! Yay!

Well, I hope this post didn’t push you over the edge to complete Holiday burnout!

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great day,
