Merry Christmas from Jelly Bean Journals

Merry Christmas to all of our Jelly Bean Journals friends! During this season we are reflecting on the people who made our year and lives a bit brighter and merrier. This community is a huge part of that. So, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your continual engagement and support.

Probably like many of you, we are taking the week off to enjoy time with our family and friends. Spending time with people who make this whole journey of life worth it, is what the holidays are all about. We want to honor them by being completely present and available. We will be back next week with a great New Years craft!

Until then, we hope you and your families have the most blessed and beautiful Christmas and holiday season. We wish presence, peace, and love for you all. Merry Christmas!
