day 1...

 I know everyone out there is probably all ready to go with their December Daily project... right? Yeah, well some of you are. I'm not one of you.

My girlfriends and I try to do this each year and theirs are always beautiful. And finished. Mine? Umm, some years I finish mine and some years I don't. This year is going to be one of the years I DO finish! This year we're all using our library drawers from 7gypsies. I think I'm gonna have to do a little number on mine with some heirloom white spray paint- I'm just not feeling this dark brown stain.
So, I cut chipboard to use as dividers for each day. Each divider will be decorated and numbered, the photo and journaling will be facing it. At the end of it all, I'd like to bind mine together so I figured I'd have to make my dividers back-to-back (so I'd only have 13 instead of 25)... by the time I embellish mine, they get pretty thick. We'll see how it goes!
This is Day 1.
For the entire project, I'm using whatever I have in my Christmas stash- that means no matchy-matchy papers (just not my style), little bits and bobs of years past, vintage images, stamps... you get it. It's a free-for-all! I did find some great little word stickers from Cosmo Cricket that are gonna be fun to use and all the numbers are cut from a Teresa Collins piece of paper.
I have yet to decide what I'll take a photo of... because I have no Christmas in my house yet. Still have to pack away all the autumn! Yeah, I'm a slacker.
I didn't quite complete my book before Dec. 1 but I figure I'll just keep working on it during the month. That certainly won't stop me from taking my daily photo and journaling a little about the day...

So to those of you who are ready to go- good for you! For the rest of you who have a gazillion distractions and can't seem to finish anything you start- best of luck! I'm with you all the way.
