There was a time when I used to love to scapbook all the things. I no longer have the time or energy for that, but I still like to find fun ways to document the month of December. For the past few years I’ve used this red Leuchtturm journal and added in journaling and pictures. Some years have most of the month done and some, like last year, have hardly any. This year I decided to keep it going and have been trying to write down something or add a picture from every day. I especially wanted to remember our last Christmas in this house!
I haven’t bought anything for this journal, I’ve been using whatever stash of paper supplies I already have built up. I did buy this Prynt Pocket photo printer last year that I really love. The quality isn’t amazing but getting to print the photos immediately and on sticky paper means they actually get put in the journal. Also it’s fun to print out a photo and write a note on it to stick in the kids’ lunches.
Another thing I’ve started is the monthly minis subscription from Chatbooks. It’s $5 a month and you get a small booklet filled with pictures of your choosing! I started in September and love my little stack so much. You can use my link, click here, to get $10 off your first order. I think this would be a great Christmas present or something to start in the new year. I love how easy it makes it to have photos printed. My kid cheer every time one comes in the mail and they are so easy to set up, I just do it from the app since all my photos are on my phone.
I don’t think every moment of your holidays have to be documented, but I think these are two easy ways to record some of your favorite memories!
