Last year I signed up for Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class. I only partially completed two layouts and didn't post either one of them. This year I'm included in the class automatically and this year I plan to journal more than two days. Today journaling is included on a scrapbook layout. It is a modified form of last year's "manifesto." I have found it difficult to get into the Christmas spirit the last couple of years. Bethany was the one who decorated and really got everyone fired up. She loved Christmas and it just hasn't been the same without her here. But in the spirit of the true meaning of Christmas (the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ), I want to "feel" Christmas this year.
