Countdown to December Daily

5 Days

to go until the start of December Daily!

Do you have your album ready yet? I have the base pages ready. Although, ready for me does not include numbering my pages. I want to be free to use whatever page tickles my fancy when I sit down with my daily picture(s). I might pick the page before printing the picture(s) depending on how many I want to print. Some days are just going to be a big picture with a tiny jot of journaling.

I absolutely love this time of the year. I can't wait to record it. I have a list of Christmas activities I want to do with Chase this year. Had to do a list because that's how I roll. I'm such a geek. But at least I know I can add the list somewhere in my December Daily. One of our Christmas activities is taking place this weekend. The Santa Claus parade is this Saturday evening. I figure on a day we have nothing Christmas-y going on, I'll add in the parade pictures.

Don't know what the heck I'm talking about when I say December Daily? Check out Ali Edward's site. I don't know if Ali is the one who started this holiday fave, but she's made it popular. Her albums always turn out amazing. She's an inspiration.

Here I Am!

Life with a two month old and a three year old has kept me busy. If we're not busy with life in general, we're busy with something else. Pre-school, Christmas shopping, doctor appointments, play dates, visits to Grandma's house, etc.
I haven't found the time to finish any scrappy project lately. I have three basic grey calendars on the go (one for my mother, one for my sister and one for myself), a painter tray for my best friend, my December Daily album, a mini album and a layout or two. I have so many ideas right now, I'm just trying to get them down before I forget. 

Here's my album (laid flat) for my December Daily.
I love how it turned out. It's a 6x12 canvas album. I stamped and embossed snowflakes. Then I sprayed Studio Calico Apple Jack mist on top. I thought it was going to look horrible because I didn't stamp or emboss very well (I am such a newbie at stamping; I suck), but it gave the album a lot of character. I love it. Can't wait for December!

Photo of the Day

Wee Man; a day short of being 8 weeks old; six days short of being 2 months old; completely melting my heart every single day.
