Journal with Me: Winter Foliage

Hello! Welcome to another installment of the Journal with Me series. For last week's spread, I decided to paint some holly berries and evergreen branches to create a winter foliage theme. I am also making a Christmas list to motivate me to send cards and gifts. Check out my process video where I chat about the main reason why I journal:

I've received several comments about how calming my voice is in my previous Journal with Me video. Thank you for the feedback!

I enjoy chatting with you all informally instead of reading a script—it feels a lot more personal. When I started creating videos a few months ago, narrating them was my biggest obstacle. I felt self conscious about my chattiness, so I wrote scripts at first. Now that I'm more comfortable speaking over my videos (and the positive feedback from you helped tremendously!), I feel much better about improvising my voiceover.

I can't believe it's already week 49 (week 50, actually, at the time of this blog post). I've figured out my planner and journal setup for 2018, and I can't wait to share it with you in a future post!
