Thank you for sharing those words. Much needed. Decembers are always really tough for me because of what I do for a living. I find the one thing that has helped me has been to simplify and do less. I don't have time for much but what I do manage to do I try to make it meaningful. Hope you have a blessed and joyful Christmas! P.s. Cinnamon Life is sometimes my Ben and Jerry's. I have polished off a box once or twice on those nights I couldn't sleep because I have a million things on my mind.

Thanks Juls! Are you still blogging? Facebook is good in small doses I think. It is really hard to get an accurate picture in a few words. I love that some are still blogging and will post if they updated their blog on facebook. I am trying to blog more this year! I need to since I am not scrapping anymore. It is the one way I am documenting family life and journaling random thoughts.
Thank you Sue! Cleaner and graphic is what I was going for! I figured I would try this way this year and see how it goes. Can't wait to see the finished year!
Week 4 complete. Feels great to be caught up with the whole process! Continue reading
