Deb's December Daily

Here's the start of my December Daily, inspired by Ali Edwards. I've wanted to do this for the past few years but just never took the time to complete it. This year, I have the shell done, the ideas are in my head, and now I search for the time to journal. It shouldn't be that hard, right?

What's a December Daily you ask? Well, it's a way to capture the day-to-day joys of Christmas and/or the entire month of December. I especially want to do it this year as a way to get back to Christmas basics -- to remind myself of the simple joys of the season rather than getting caught up in the hype and commercialism that seem to have captured Christmas.

My pages are chipboard, and I used a couple of pieces from a house-shaped chipboard book I got out of the dollar bin @ Michael's. The paper is some double-sided yummy-ness from Fancy Pants that I've had for a while and am finally putting it to use. I'll post some more pictures this weekend once I am caught up and updated. :o)

What simple things are you doing to celebrate this season?

Oh, gorgeous :-) I'm doing a kind of JYC/December Daily combo, picking up on any of Shimelle's prompts that 'speak' to me and recording the day to day Christmas preparations too. I *love* this time of year!

How crazy! We must think alike. :) I just found Ali Edwards' blog a few days ago and noticed what she was up to with making a December Daily book. It's inspired me to make one also..now I just need to get on the ball! Your house-shaped chipboard is very cute!

That's looking lovely! I'm doing Shimelle's JYC tied up with LSNED, which I held over from September. I might give December Daily a go next year ...
