I was intrigued last December by so many people's December Dailies that I promised myself I would try it this year.
Oh the visions I had!
All of the cute pockets of goodies and photos.
I will get one of those gorgeous little Sn@p binders and fill it full of our holiday traditions and escapades!
It would be so easy to keep up with!
I mean, if they can do then surely I could do it, too.
I couldn't even get the darn thing assembled by December 1st.
And we don't even do that much stuff in December,
I would have an album full of fluff.
Or "what we had for dinner".
Or a bunch of staged, fake photos of the kids and more likely -
our poor dogs in Santa hats and elf hats drinking the water out of the Christmas tree.
So, I'm not doing a December Daily. But I sort of am.
It will be a fun little album of all our traditions and escapades,
but it won't document every single day.
I found this adorable burlap chipboard album (Little Yellow Bicycle)
at Michael's for THREE DOLLARS. Um, hello?
It's 6x6 and has 6 inside pages.
I just received an awesome kraft envelope for winning a layout challenge,
so I punched some holes to use it as a "page" also.
Some acetate pages and vellum envelopes will also find their way in soon.
The paper? October Afternoon's Make It Merry. *swoon*
I love it. LOVE. It's so whimsical and perfect.
More bits and pieces from the OA collection . . .
What's an album without washi? A boring one if you ask me.
I won't bore you with the ink, paint, ribbons, and alpha stickers.
Mainly because I haven't picked them all out yet.
I have been taking plenty of photos for it, though!
Here are a few that are just waiting for a prime spot in the album:
Is there anyone out there who is a little like me?
Is your "December Daily" more of a
"This Is What We Did In December And A Little Bit Of November And Maybe Even January"?
Since that title is so long and would never fit on a 6x6 album,
I shall call it instead the "Holiday Hustle".
Because it's funny.
And everyone could use more funny.
