I fell a bit behind with my Awesome Ladies album but am slowly catching up so there will be a few catch up posts and then I can get back into posting the current weeks. It feels amazing to have an album that will actually be complete and I look forward to creating another mini album about me in 2017.
Yup it’s time for Shimelle’s Journal Your Christmas again.

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared here. Life has been busy which sadly means not much time for creative pursuits.
Anywho, Kristin of rukristin and Megan of The Nerd Nest have created the next instalment of their awesome workshop My Details.
This round is all about Citizenship.
MyDetails: Citizenship Edition encourages you to tell the story of who you are.
The story of you is also a story of where you are from, where you live, your culture, and who you are as a citizen. With this workshop, you’ll document the details of yourself as a community member (whether it be national, regional, or local) as well as how the details of your culture/society impact your life. No matter what your citizen-story looks like, this workshop will help you document the details that are most meaningful to you.
Whether you’re a blogger, a mini book maker, an art-journaler, a scrapbooker, or any other creative or wannabe-creative person, we’ve got the best ideas to make sure you are telling YOUR story and documenting YOUR details in your memory keeping!
When you register you’ll get access to twice weekly prompts in your inbox, and you might see a familiar face If you’re interested, check out this page.
I’m looking forward to creating some pages and adding them to an album about me.
