Since 2011, I have spent a special amount of time in December documenting my days throughout the holiday. Only in 2012 did I discover Ali Edwards’ project, December Daily, and that year I made my first DD mini book. Last year, I created a mini book in an attempt to document the entire month of December, but I only got so far as designing the cover. Graphic design school was finishing up and my final project was due Dec 20, so all my December energy went to that.
This year, I'm ready. My Project Life COMEBACK has commenced, and my December documenting shall be going right into my 6x8 Project Life ablum documenting my journey through year 30. Most of the papers are from the mambi 'All that Glitter' Christmas box kit. These new gold foil Christmas mambiSTICKS too.
I just want to get my December down in photos and words. I feel this year's December being transformative, as I'll be spending it at home in New York after living apart from family in Texas for the past three months. ...I'm also going to be introducing the boops to mom's new kitten, Jack Black, having a Thanksgiving re-do dinner, and continuing some holiday decorating traditions with my cousin Claudia. ...not to mention a December date with these gals, and a possible ugly Christmas sweater party. I want to record it all. I want to be in the moment with it all.
*See how I made that mini Starbucks™ red cup embellishment HERE.
Happy almost-December! Happy holiday crafting! My your month be merry & bright!
