It's been SIX YEARS since I tackled a december daily! And even then I only made it to day 18. Sigh. Here's the book from way back when if you wanna take a peek. (here and here) I noticed I didn't even take photos of the second half of the book I made, ugh! I have to say that when I dug it out, I oohed and aahed at the memories I recorded and am so happy I did so! I had little kids back then, this will be fun to document the holiday season with 3 teenagers!
I am also using a black faux leather album like Amy Tangerine. We decided when we were together that we were going to tackle this this year. Though she's been rather faithful, I'm not surprised! I'm going the simple route with a little modern look for the cover. Old school KI memories lace paper yup!! I've hoarded so many goodies over the years, this is going to be a mesh of old school supplies and bits of current!
First page, DONE! Little pocket of journaling about how I learned to snag chocolate advent calendars when I see them in Trader Joe's in OCTOBER now because they sell out and then I have to search high and low for marginal chocolate calendars. I think once the calendar is consumed, it might be cute to tear out some of the pockets and include it around here for visuals.
The hardest part of keeping up with the december daily in my opinion are the photos. It's darker out which make for harder indoor photos, the pressure to DO something to take photos and then to print photos. I am going to give myself a pass on all that this year. I'm just gonna do what I can do, because really, it's been SIX years. Gotta ease back into this thing :)
