Every year for many years I have wanted to complete the December Daily – it is basically a daily breakdown of the often craziest month of the year. So much happens in December! For December 2012 I have started! Which is amazing! I have actually bought and covered an album, and started on the pages – here is what I have so far….
I am not sure where the idea originated for the December Daily, but there is a large number of people that complete it, and share their pages as they go! I am no where near finished, but I have started, and have done a good 13 pages! There is something wonderful about preserving the seemingly ‘mundane’ or ordinary events. Much of what I do every day is similar, and I love that I have captured some of that in this – in ten years time I know it will be just a mind bending read!! There is also great visual array on Instragram if you are looking 🙂
My daily kit is pretty basic I think in comparison to some. But that is the idea – KISS so that you actually DO it! I ordered mine from Polka Dot Creative a site I kinda stumbled on trying to find something basic for a December Daily…check out the blog as well as there are heaps of ideas for craft of all sorts. I went with the Studio Calico Christmas set and binder. I covered the binder with fabric (with a bit of wadding underneath) and I am really happy with it!
I am absolutely busting to get my Project Life kit – I have ordered it….8 days ago….and am not very patient right now! I really want to start it! I have so many ideas, and am already seeing many people’s first week of Project Life – I guess I could use my stash (for sure I could) but the kit is so much prettier and well, the guess work is taken care of! I have ordered the Amber kit and have visions for the Clementine edition. I just want to get it and start!
I am glad that I am finding and making the time to create a little each day. I think it is going to be stellar year! I have such a stash of goodies that I am keen to start using – I have some kits that have not been opened since I bought them pre-triplets! So much to create! Little steps, little steps.
