I've been thinking a lot about December Daily lately and I had to make a decision not to make one this year. There are a number of reasons for that, but one main reason that overweight the excitement to join others on yet another fun DD journey was that my scrapbook albums are totally missing Christmas stories.
We love to scrapbook summer. I have a little bit of fall and spring related scrapbook pages, but not a single Christmas layout. When I thought about it, it felt a little sad. It seemed like we don't even celebrate Christmas at all. I know why that happens for me. We start Christmas season early... It starts with the stores displaying Holiday merchandise a lot earlier than we are ready to see it. These pictures were taken 2 weeks ago:
Flip flops and snowmen kinda don't go together on the same picture...
December is a pretty busy month around here. When December comes and you finally feel like it's holiday season, that's when you want to scrapbook Christmas! But for four years I concentrated on December daily. We can only do so much. After December was over, I wasn't even done with DD, because towards the end of the month it's usually getting a lot busier. Honestly, sometimes, I didn't even feel like finishing my DD in January, not even talking about making a page.
This year, I want to concentrate on scrapbooking our favorite Christmas and Holiday moments and adding them to our albums! Old memories and new. Funny and precious. Our traditions and people we celebrate our holidays with. I'll still try to take some pictures everyday, but that will be added into my Project Life album.
Also, I didn't make enough Christmas cards last year, so I'm starting early this year and will try to expand my collection throughout the season, so I have a choice when I'll need a card. Here's one I just created last week:
I used some beautiful papers by Les Papiers de Pandore for it.
Any thoughts on this subject? I'd like to hear!
Thank you for stopping by today! I have two more pages to share that I created recently. Both of them are waiting for journaling, so I hope to see you tomorrow!
Have a great day! Enjoy the weather!
