Christmas Is Coming & Simply Sunday Journal Prompt

Twelve days before Christmas! Are you starting to rush around yet? ( or ) Are you one of those people that have it all together for months? Well this week I decided not only to give you a journal prompt but some helpful links for some holiday goodies such as gift tags &  DYI projects to add that creative touch to your packages.Yes, today all foggy & cold here and I will be inside wrapping some gifts to mail out to family. Trying to get on track with the incoming holiday and end of the year~ Where has this year gone?
Print ready gift tags & felt tutorial~ 

Gift Tags via Going Home To Roost

Gift Tags via Creature Comforts designed by Camilla Engman  (kids would love these)

Felt Ginger Cookie Ornaments via Creature Comforts (great for package toppers too!) 

Faux Sugar Cookie Ornaments via Creature Comforts

Gift Tags designed by Georgianna Lane  (  This Link Expires12/31! but, these are my favorite & from one of my favorite blogs to visit! )

Now for your Journal Prompt : make a little holiday page. It can be fun, whimsical  page with holiday colors, ribbons, papers or even illustrative. Do a page with all the childlike qualities of Christmas that you love! You might like to list some of your favorite parts of the holiday season that you love or have enjoyed when you were a child. Whether it be decorating the tree, making handmade ornaments wrapping gifts, baking cookies with the kids or visiting family~ A few of my favorites are baking holiday cookies, making ornaments & of course looking at the beautiful tree all lit up for the holidays.
What was your favorite Christmas memory as a child ? What is your favorite thing about Christmas now?

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. Laura Ingalls Wilder

Here is  holiday idea book that I am swooning over! Do you have a favorite?


  1. I have not been able to art journal for awhile. I am going to make some time this week though. I love your Santa journal page. I happen to be the last minute shopper. Argh!

  2. Hi Heather, I know what you mean. I am going to try and get a little painting done today. I know with all the holiday plans and traveling I won't be doing as much until the new year. I do a lot of my shopping online, which is a saving grace only when there is free shipping and you don't wait! Off to get my journal fix. lol ~Theresa
