I'm back again with December Daily, I'm still playing catch up of course but I am surprising only behind in getting it posted here on the blog...my actual album is for the most part right on track so that is good...very good for me, usually at this point I'm so far behind I wait to finish it at the new year.
For the opening of day 12 I just used lots of photos from throughout the day.
On the back I added in some screenshots that I had saved from the day too, often when I'm on break at work I distract myself in one of my many social media outlets be it: Instagram, Pinterest, Bloglovin', or Google +
In between these two pages you'll notice I also added in a copy of the DVD cover of A Christmas Story - in our Advent Calendar our activity for the day was 'movie night' with popcorn and hot cocoa, this is what the girls wanted to see.
For the following page I did a lot of journaling, just seems to be the best way for me aside from photos.
On the next page I used a couple of the photo flips and added in a couple of photos from our day then added along the side a decorative element with some Christmas tags that I picked up at Michaels. The sister page is full of ephemera and a journal spot.
As for these two pages I have dedicated them to our family tradition of cutting down a Christmas tree. We started this tradition in 2011 when we moved into our new house in a new town, we found a Family Owned Christmas Tree Farm not to far and so it seemed like the perfect time to start this annual tradition for our selves, the girls absolutely love it.
On the back side of that I used a free printable that I found online and then also copied the cover of one of my favorite Christmas Albums to include.
For the start of day 14 I added in some photos that I took at our family Christmas gathering, plus a brochure that I picked up while we were there.
On the flip side I have a picture of my mother-in-law and her sister which are the two reasons for this family gathering every year, love that we do this even if it is only once a year.
In the journaling on the opposite page I included some of the happenings from our day and what I got for our girls to open at our family party.
On the back of it I really didn't know what to say or add so I added in two gift tags that had on it what we took to the party for our girl and guy gifts and then who ended up getting those gifts, never thought to include that until I didn't have anything to go on, funny how that happened.
Well that's all I have for today, hope you are enjoying this peek into my world and enjoying even more the telling of your own stories. Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, and the only thing we can truly count on is change, so it is important to remember the now because tomorrow...it's a new day.
*thanks for everything*
