December Daily album
First of all - Happy New Year!
I wanted to share the December Daily album (inspired by ali edwards) that I made this year. It may seem like just one more thing to add to a busy holiday season, but I really enjoyed working on it. The trick is to keep up with it and add photos and stories every day or every other day. I found that it inspired me to do something a little festive every day, especially now that Lachlan is old enough to anticipate Christmas. Of course, I fell behind around the 15th and spent the last couple days adding photos and memories from our days. I am so glad that I took the time to finish it.
I made it easier on myself by purchasing a book from Elise Blaha. The 4x6" size was very manageable and of course it helps that I have the capability to print photos at home. I added a December calendar page, a Christmas card we received and an "eat" page to the pages Elise put together. I also picked up a few numbers and tags from the living room floor etsy shop for embellishments.
There were 4 envelopes in the kit. I put L's letter to Santa (he dictated and I wrote) in one and a printout of my blog post about the advent calendar in another. In the other two I plan to put letters from me to L & K about my memories of their Christmas' this year. Must get those written this week!
Here are a few of my favorite spreads (the rest are in the Flickr set):
