All is well but very busy

I have been keeping up with the Journal Your Christmas class but there has been so much to do that I haven't been able to keep up with posting to the blog.  With Christmas and the trip to New Mexico I was getting overwhelmed posting the images.  So I figured if something had to be postponed for a little while, this was it. I will update when I return from our trip, even if it's just a bit at a time. Pray we have good traveling weather and look for my return by Jan 1st or so. I have to post my New Years Resolutions after all.  :)


Happy Holidays

and have a

Wonderful New Year

That's it, we are up to date. The prompt for the 13th, how the gifts get sorted on Christmas day, I happened to cover on journal above.  So I will use the 13th for my own prompt, Company Christmas Parties. My Guy had his annual Christmas party for work last night and it was a lot of fun. Good food, a little wine, a gift exchange and some great table company. We took some killer pictures last night, and this is coming from someone who hates her picture taken.

Journal Your Christmas - Dec 4

Believe it or not, I've actually been keeping up with the Journal your Christmas class but in doing so I've neglected my blog. Unfortunately, try as I might, I can't do everything I want to do. Just not enough hours in the day.  Here are my entries for Dec 4, which was about the Ideal Christmas. Hope you like it.  I'll be posting the rest of the pages as separate entries.  Feel free to leave me comments.

First Page of Journal your Christmas

This is from the first prompt by Shimelle Laine at It's glued on the the inside of the journal cover to remind me to keep up. It says:


I declare my intention to Journal my Christmas. Writing something down every day. Creating a little bit whenever possible. Getting my stories documented for myself and maybe for others to read too.

I hope by taking a little time each day to reflect, to write, to create, I will keep my Christmas alive and well, despite the commercial pressure that exists outside my door. Family, friends and beverages will help.

I may meet others taking this same journey. I may share my work from time to time. I may remember just why I loved Christmas in the first place, and that may be a very magical moment indeed.

This is my first page.
