Dear Santa...

Dear Santa, if you've been making your lists already, can you add this little tiny tool for me, please? You don't even have to wrap it up in a pretty paper. I will except it in the ugliest box... Hope you have some extra Silhouettes laying around...
Is it really that time of the year when we get this type of mail, already?


I guess some people think about Holidays ahead of time (then they don't have to do last minute shopping like me). And nothing gets me thinking about Holiday season as much as the composition of a new December Daily. Today Ali posted her first post on that subject. You can check it HERE.



I used this piece of mail and a few circle punches to make my first few embellishments for 2011 DD. I love the whole concept of this project - taking pictures everyday for entire month of December, writing little stories... but what I didn't like about it last two years was - finishing it all the way into February. I'll try to make pages along the way this year. Keeping simple design and fewer decorative pieces, concentrating on documentary part of this project, might help it.


Hope you enjoy your new week and start having some Holiday thoughts too!

  6. Santa Claus has a big job this year :)
    It's never too early to start getting ready for something, especially Christmas shopping (which I need to do now or else it will not get done at all :)

  7. Yes Anka! You definitely need to do one. This way you can show us your college and everything else about your life in Philly :)

  8. Yep, Lorik! I don't know what's up with me lately though... I just don't have any creativity for scrapbooking! It's weird and hope it will go away really soon because my parents' album needs to be done!

  9. Katya what do you mean Santa is not real?!? You just ruined it for me too! I had a whole list going for Santa... i want my house to be pained! Furniture to arrive! Someone to put it where it should go and decorate it! And curtains... I’m so lost with curtains!! Ohh and i want a washer & dryer, and a chandelier for my hall way. That's not a lot to ask for... and now it sounds like I have to do it all?!? :-(
    Oh and Anya, i love this time of the year!!! :-) and i hope Santa brings you the Silhouette maker ;-)

  10. Girls I'm so excited that we'll do DD together this year!

    Anka, that hapens to everyone.
    I've been there a few times. It will go away. Maybe if you sit down to put your DD together, it will come back, but make sure to check Ali's site first(she has links for all her previous DD). She is just so good to put you in the right mood for that...

    Lora, you definately need to do your shopping early this year :)))

    Ira, I think Katya knows... and I guess you can put a Santa hat on and start working on your list :)))

  12. Do you mean you will do a digital version? Doesn't matter what product you are using as long as you are willing to participate with documentation of life during a month of December! Photo book works just as good!

  13. Yep, totally agree! The important thing is to document the moments, how you do it is less important than actually putting it down in some kind of format. I am thinking that for the future I will probably use a binder (more of a project life type of thing) or use digital and hand made pages (kind of what Ali does). I think it's so exciting and interesting to look back and if it's done mostly ahead of time, its not that hard to keep up.

  14. Yea, sometimes the energy/creativity is just not there. What helps me is looking at the work of others and that usually does the trick (inspiration) :)
    But in the first 3-4 months of pregnancy, not even inspiration did the trick... :D

  15. I pulled some of my DD related stuff and layed it all over the table. This way it keeps me thinking about the way I want to do it. I definately want to make it very simple to be able to stay on track. Hopefully sharing a few pages along the way in December.

  16. Poor ladies... both of you should check Ali's DD from 08 where she was pregnant. Just think how different you DD from next year will be compared to this one! Those memories are will be precios!

  17. I know, a daily track until birth :) I surely will be identifying with Mary this holiday season!
    I remember looking through some of her DD's, will have to go back and check it out :)

  18. Anya it seens like we just finished our DD project last week or so and we are talking about next one already. I need to get emotionally, physically and creatively ready.
    "Identifying with Mary" good thought! Lora from all the people I think you should defenatly make your DD, especially if you end up having your boy on Christmas. That would be so special

    ОтветитьУдалить
  19. Yeah, and I think we have a perfect choice for the Mary part in a the Christmas play - this one already has a belly :)))

  20. hehe, yea.... :) don't know if i'll be the best "actor" choice though...although all the role playing will be very real ;)
