Can a person without kids use this journal?

Absolutely! Katie began keeping a Christmas journal several years before becoming a mom—it quickly became one of her favorite Christmas traditions.

What age do my kids need to be to start this journal?

No rules. Older kids will enjoy independently writing and embellishing pages. Younger kids will need more help. For example, Katie is keeping the journal with her two-year-old son. His jobs include picking out which paper they'll use, coloring on everything, and making sure there are holiday cookie breaks!

How do I receive the material?

You receive the paper kit in the mail. We ship within 4 business days of your order. Simultaneously, I'll email you access to the PDF journal pages. You don't need any fancy equipment to print the journal pages or take the courses.

Do you use US Letter or A4 paper for the PDF document?

I give you both! No matter what country you live in, it's easy to print with your standard paper.

Do I need a color printer?

No. The writing prompts are all black and white, so they are easy to print at home, work, or your local print shop.
