Christmas Journal (Neighbor Gifts)

Hey there, Happy Thanksgiving eve...I hope your busy making pies, rolls, and getting ready to roast that turkey. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite! I love spending time with family (and eating).
I've been working on some projects to give away to my neighbors for Christmas. As a scrapbooker I'm passionate about memory keeping and documenting our stories. This year I'm hoping to share a little bit of that passion.
By leaving a small journal on your coffee table or mantel you'll be surprised what conversations will be started and what memories will come. Here are a few of the journals I created.

I created each journal with a small composition book (I got them at Walmart for 1.47 for a pack of 3) and the Peppermint Express line from American Crafts

This is what is written in the front of each journal:
This book is to be left on your coffee table during the Christmas season with a pen nearby. Encourage everyone to document a Christmas memory, tradition, an ornament, a decoration, a party, or simply record the happenings of the day. When the Christmas season ends pack this book up with your Christmas decorations and then do the same thing next year. Before you know it you’ll need another journal and it this will become a tradition everyone looks forward to.

This is a tradition we're starting in our family. Hopefully you can start if in your family as well. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
