Well, hello December!

December does this every year:  I blink and it’s here! 

December is ushering in lots of exciting things.  The new issue of PaperHaus magazine is out and it’s amazing.  I’m excited to be a contributor. You can see the new issue here.  The PaperHaus blog is giving away 12 great prizes, one prize a day for the first 12 days of December. Be sure to hop over there and leave a comment. Today’s prize is from Prima.

December 1 also marks the day for sneak peaks for the new kits at My Creative Scrapbook. Below is a sneak at one of my projects.  The full reveal is December 5 and the Design Team has outdone itself.  The holiday projects are amazing and we'll have tips and tutorials on the blog every day this month.

Last year, I decided to document my family’s holiday season with a December Daily.  It was the first time I undertook the project and I’ll be honest: I didn’t finish.  So this is the year!  The year to finish last year’s December Daily that is.

I did journal every day last year and I put a post it note in my December Daily of what we did. So even though I didn’t finish the album, I have a good record of what we did and for most days, I printed the photos, and slipped them in the page protectors too.  But since I didn’t have all my foundation pages premade, I found I just couldn’t keep up.

So, this year on my blog, I am going to post each day of my 2011 December Daily. Some days will be pages I’ve already done and some will be new pages that record last year’s activities.   When I get to December 25, I will have completed my 2011 December Daily. Yay!  That’s the plan anyway.

I started my December Daily with a photo from outside the house looking in.  I used an Ali Edwards template for 6x8 pages and followed her general design. Every day except Dec. 1 has a foundation page on the left and a journaling/photo page on the right. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your December is off to a great start!
