The 1st December challenge is to use this sketch, and the following criteria.........
Journalling Criteria/theme: The thing I look most forward to in December.
Write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to in the next month. December is a festive month so your journalling could be about the Christmas season, the holidays, the presents or if you do not celebrate Christmas what does December bring for you that you look most forward to? Note: Your layout DOES NOT have to be about Christmas! It can be about anything December brings.
Other ideas for journalling: an annual holiday or celebration, a specific event such as putting up the Christmas tree or pre Christmas traditions you might have leading up to Christmas, family time, snow covered fields or warmer weather, time off work, school holidays, change of weather, new season fruit.
