So check back often to find them all.

First of all of course with a flip through of the December daily Journal 🙂

My daughter journalled with me through the month of December and we made a flip through of her journal as well.

Now that I’ve revived the blog with my December challenge, I feel I’d like to keep writing little snippets of my life here. However there’s no December Daily Journal to keep me accountable, nor a challenge to myself to keep me on my toes. Come to think of it, my life really isn’t that interesting, except perhaps for that one thing, where I have my own business.

Now I know, a lot of people have their own business, so not that special either. Except that I do feel it’s special. I started it all, coming out of a burn-out. With no prior knowledge of selling or anything that surrounds having your own business. I learned it all on the go and I’m still learning….every day!

With that in mind, I want to change the blog a little bit. It’ll still be about journals and journaling, I might even throw in some art journaling this year, but it’ll also be about running your own business and trying to make a living from it. The do’s and don’t I learned along the way and all the little, sometimes big, things I encounter along the way. Be it for good or for bad, because we may be 5 years old, it could all still go horribly wrong of course 😉

Happy New Year everybody. I feel 2019 is going to be an amazing year!

I hope you all had a fabulous New year’s Eve, with lots of good company, good food and fireworks.

After dropping my daughter and her boyfriend off in Eindhoven yesterday, we went on to my sister’s in Limburg and spend the night watching a movie and playing Catan.

It’s been I while since I played it, so I had no clue what I was doing and lost miserably, but that really didn’t matter much, it was all about the company.

Woohoo, I finally did it, I changed the domain for the blog to ladyfalcontravelers.com. It’s been on my to-do list for quite a while now and today I finally dared to take the leap and change it. All the old links for morganlefaestrinkets.com will still work, at least for a while, and redirect everything to this domain.

I think it’s fitting that the blog is Ladyfalcontravelers.com and the shop is Falcontravelers.com, since the blog is my thing and the shop is run by my husband and me…. I guess if Mr. Falcon Travelers wants to write a blog he can get his own domain 😉

My December Daily Traveler’s notebook is getting quite full. With only 2 more days left to go, it’s really quite chunky. I did a little evaluation of this journey on a page with a bit of space to write left. And my conclusion is that it was a lot of fun to do the journaling and write in the notebook every day.

I think it’s clear that I failed my self imposed challenge to write a blog post every day.

I did Journal every day this month, so that part of the challenge is going great. I get a cute notebook at the end of the month filled with memories and a lot of fun along the way.

It also invited me to take some more pics every day, which I normally just forget to do and had fun with my sis and mom playing with snapchat.

I’ve been catching up on some sleep in the past days and did a lot of Christmas prepping. I’ve got a house full of people tomorrow, so that means a lot of food and a lot of places to sleep 😉

I did also make a new leather tote for me, so I can carry my notebooks around in style, lol. I posted a picture of it on Instagram. And of course I did do some journaling each day.

Day 22 was easy, because I had it prepped already, but for both day 23 and 24 I had to start new spreads…which means starting on a blank page…

I always find that a bit daunting, these white pages staring me in the face.

Today was our last day sending out parcels before Christmas, because we’re on a mini break from now on. We both need a little time to recharge. It’s been a hectic few months, starting in October with the 5th anniversary sale, followed by two shows and the Black Friday – Cyber Monday sale weekend.

We didn’t expect those to be such a huge success, but are really happy that they were and I want to thank everyone for supporting our little family business. You are amazing.

I realize the time to make has gone up quite a bit, from 1-2 weeks before October to 4 weeks currently, but we hope to be back to normal in January.
