If you've been following along with me here on the Green Tangerines blog, you know that I created an album called "The 25 days of Christmas Joy" in November so I could add pictures and journaling in December. Now that it's December, I've been taking pictures and journaling in a notebook by my bedside every night - and I'm finding that it's helping me stop to appreciate the "little things" a whole lot more. It's really changing my attitude about the holidays. Even when I learned I was coming down with walking pneumonia this past week, I realized that it was a great opportunity to stop, slow down, and relax! (And yes, I even captured that in my album!)
Some observations thus far:
-To save time, I'm writing my journaling. I don't always love my handwriting - and I make mistakes. But, it's faster and captures more of "me" in the album
-I'm using a mix of new and older products on my journaling pages. Adding as I go. I imagine I'll go back and add some embellishments later...or not. We'll see...
-I printed photos on Saturday - and put my pages together (using my journal to jumpstart my memories for the photos and journaling) on Sunday. Going forward I may do this twice a week if I know I'm going to be somewhere I can pick up pictures. Or, I may even print my own at home. We'll see...
