December Daily...

So last year I really wanted to do a December Daily/Christmas Journal. (Inspired by Ali Edwards). I had the whole book premade and ready to go Dec 1. I think I made it two Dec 3 before I gave up. But this year I vowed it would be different. I bought a cute book and cute papers and was so sure I would have everything premade and ready to go for today. Well.... shocker that didn't happen!! But I'm still going to do it! I decided to give my blog a little holiday makeover and that will be the basis for Day 1 of my journal. For the 25 days leading up to Christmas (and including the day) I will try to fill my journal with daily activities (Christmas related and otherwise) and holiday memories. I will try to post here on the blog "daily" (every other day maybe? Okay at least once a week!!) with my progress and pictures. I plan on using a Making Memories recipe book I found that I will alter to make into a cute journal/mini book. I have also talked my mom into doing one too. You can see the beginning of her book here. She is using the same base for the book as I will be. It will be fun to get together on Christmas to see the differences in our books. I hope you will check back to see my progress (if there is any!!)

Can't wait to see your finished journal at Christmas. I've been working on mine, and have plenty of ideas to fill the pages. Well at least I think I have plenty of ideas...having the ideas and actually doing it are two different things.
