I have the last part of my December Daily ready to show you today! Initially I planned to carry this project through to the last day of the month, but on the evening of the 26th as I was working on that day’s story, I felt pretty strongly that it was finished. I was kinda done with it. So I stopped on the 26th and I’m happy with that.
This was my first December Daily album and it was a really fun experience. If I were to do it again, I absolutely would not have bought so much product, but I’ve put it away to save for next year. Now I know what I’ll use and what I won’t. Overall, this was a really great memory keeping experience that helped me capture some of the joy of the season.
DEC 21 // STORY: A run along the Charles River.
I seen this boat decorated with Christmas lights a few times over the month and I finally got a chance to take a photo. I just got these geotag chipboard pieces so I was excited to use one here. I’ve had those two filler cards on the top for a long time so I was excited to use them! I put Merry Happy Everything on the right side because I love that page.
DEC 22 // STORY: The NOEL sign in my window that I made a few years ago. It seems to find a different home every year.
I added the star on the O for some repetition from the 22 number right above. Then I added this “3 more days…” just because I wanted to.
DEC 23 // STORY: My last day of work before Christmas. Going running in the rain. Getting coffee.
I really liked using the “THE STORY OF TODAY” stamp repetitively on this spread on the number card. I love the colors here.
DEC 24 // STORY: Christmas Eve!
A three page spread about Christmas Eve events and a “counting my blessings” card that I used to write out what happened without having to use full sentences. Looking at it now I realize that I put the number 24 on there twice, but that’s okay.
DAY 25 // STORY: CHRISTMAS DAY!!!
I put a ton of photos in here and I don’t feel bad about it at all.
I did a big Christmas morning series as you can see above. I was sick for the rest of the afternoon unfortunately so I spent most of it sleeping and have no photos. But then I did an evening spread of how I spent that night once I was feeling better, and closed it off with another gold 25 page to bookend the day.
DEC 26 // STORY: The day after Christmas.
I loved this favorite things page and I really like having it be out of the protector while attached to the 25 page. I wrote about what I did that day and Iove where I placed the 26.And that’s the last page! As I was working on it, I felt like the album was complete. The day after Christmas seems as good a place as any to stop a December album. Right now, the back of the right page is empty. I probably will find two other December photos and put them in there, or do some writing about December Daily.
Like I said I loved this project and I look forward to many more! Thanks for looking.
