since the Gossamer Blue December Daily Boot Camp class, i've been pluggin away at completing my days ALMOST every night. some days, like this past weekend, did not happen. but i'm glad i'm staying current w/ it, which is more than what i've done w/ my previous two december daily albums.
i've changed my pages around each day as i don't have all two page spreads. most are one page spreads, which i am liking.
day 1... is simple, pictures from the Christmas parade. Tim had my camera in the crowd & the pic of C & i is w/ my cell phone before we walked.
days 2 & 3... we celebrated Tyler's 10th birthday and it was a blast! our tree had been up & lit since the last week of November, but we didn't start decorating it until the following week.
all of my day numbers are placed outside of each page. i like to be able to feel them as i go through my book.
i wanted to add more journaling & this family photo, so i made it where it could be flipped open. gotta love the mood my kids were in, LOL.
day 4 & 5... we celebrated holiday potluck w/ Tyler's pack. each scout & their siblings were gifted a derby car. can't wait to put that together and race them next year! the next day was spent wrapping gifts to all those that need to be shipped. i'm also participating in Fat Mum Slim's Gift Exchange & i had to ship to Australia.
i used the gold glitter cardstock as my number five that is tucked inside the glassine baggie w/ snowflakes punched through.
day 6 & 7... shopping day & prep Christmas cards for mailing (no looking ;))
the glassine bag holds a list of all the addresses to our friends & family...some newly added names, which is always nice.
day 8... a two page spread me & my friend Penny spent the day shopping, good quality time!
day 9 & 10... a picture-less day b/c i was sick. it only lasted for 24 hours, so that was nice. the next day Tyler's pack sung Christmas songs at the Wilburn Gardens. it was cute listening to them sing to the elderly there, who loved every minute of them singing & requested more at the end :)
journaling is hidden on the tag here...
day 11... after ballet, dinner & running errands, we spent the rest of the evening in bed watching Christmas movies. it was so relaxing & definitely needed after the busy few weeks we've had since Thanksgiving
that's it! i'll be better & not wait nearly 2 weeks, ha! i want to share at least 2x a week so i'm not having to do such a long post.
