Day 04 and feeling fine

Day 4 is about your perfect Christmas. I thought about this and all the things that make this season wonderful and I thought to my self: "I've never had a bad Christmas." I have been blessed to have a wonderful, meaningful Christmas every year that I can remember. They were not all alike, they were not all filled with loads of presents, but they all had a few things in common:
I feel that this page will overlap into a Christmas Traditions page as well, but that's OK for me because I am just going day by day and enjoying the creative process. This page is very different from my other pages in my book and I love that and hate that.

I love the idea of having a pre-made album full of the same colors, elements and theme and then adding things to it as the month goes on. I didn't do this. I am going day-by-day and just making pages as I feel inspired by the prompt. Today I wanted a photo and this one spoke to me and it was just perfect enough to use it as a background for my journaling (BTW I dislike my handwriting but I feel it adds a more personal touch to my pages. I could have typed the journaling onto the page before I printed it out but that defeats my purpose of having personal touch to it.)


So my album this year is going to be VERY eclectic, much like myself, so I'm OK with that. It's for me, right?

merry merry from me and mauii!

Great page. I found your blog through Shimelle's journal forum. Loved reading through it and saw you visited New Orleans, I live an hour north of New Orleans so we go there quite often, not as much sine the Hurricane but often enough. I love your daily's you make. Great blog. :D
