December Daily 2011

Ready? Get set...

Ali Edwards is already preparing her December Daily foundation pages.  Are you participating this year?  I'm kind of on the wall, myself.  Last year was the first time I had participated in the project.  It was a great experience overall, but...

I noticed some things...

1.  It was a little tricky for me to stay up to date since I don't print my photos at home.  The good people at Walgreens really got to know me in December.
2.  I was more than a little crazy-in-the-head about coming up for something each day, and sometimes it seemed forced.  I think I need to be a little more laid back in my approach.
3.  I'm not totally convinced that (considering all of the scrapbooks that line the shelves of our home) I want a Christmas book for every year as well.  It's getting to be a little "and the scrapbooks shall inherit the earth..." around here.  Just sayin'.

But I still like the concept SO MUCH.

So, for this year I plan to...

...continue to print my pictures "away from home" (read: probably Walgreens)
because the quality is better.

...not work so hard to have pictures/stories/paraphernalia for each day.
I'm going to "low-key" it a bit, and see what I come up with.

...incorporate my December pages
into my regular chronological scrapbook.
I'm not anticipating having enough pages to warrant a dedicated album.

So, DID you participate last year?

Will you participate AGAIN?

What will YOU do differently?


Happy Scrappin'!

  1. Hi Sally!

    I started mine last year and never finished. I don't have kids and working third shift kind of put a damper on my social life :) Some days I struggled just to come up with something.

    I'm working on my foundation pages today and if I don't end up with something every day, I'm ok with that :)

    Good luck, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!


  2. I'm going to do it the first time this year as the last 2 yeras I was doing 365 so there seemed little point. I have had a lot of sucess with holiday (vacation) journals using this premise and I'm excited to start!



Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
