The Fourth Day of Christmas!

Day 4 already…


Sorry...I'm having a little issue with downloading the video...check back later but I posted the project and prize!!!


















“Christmas Art Journal” By Kim Loewen

I’ve really wanted to record my thoughts and feelings about the Christmas season this year, so I thought I would create an art journal. I’ve tried to use mostly the same product line to keep it simple and easy...this way I don’t have to think too much about coordinating items! Hehe! Each day for 12 days (you can see I’ve started already) I will journal about our traditions, thoughts, feelings, memories, or anything that’s happening at the moment that I don’t want to forget. I wanted this Christmas to be simpler so that I could focus on the true meaning of the season…and what better way to do that then journal.... As I journal I’ll fill in the pages more, but that will be the daily process…I’ll add the day, journal, and embellish more if needed! It will be so fun to look back next year and read my Christmas message.... If you wanted to simplify this project even more...you could incorporate the idea into a layout!

Hey there...
Very cute idea and what a special keepsake to have. Something like that would be neat to even have circulate within a group of friends or family members so that each year one can document their christmas experience and can keep it going and make it one of their own christmas traditions!

Love the idea of an art journal, wanted to do one for the whole month but things are too crazy around here, but I think a 12 Days of Christmas one would be manageable! Thanks for the idea!
