December Daily 2018

I have completed three December Daily albums in past years, but the last one I finished was in 2013. I set out every year with good intentions. Last year, I even printed out a whole bunch of photos and got all my supplies together. But the year progressed and so did my motivation. I find if I don’t journal pretty close to the moment, the narrative changes or I don’t remember what I would want to say about it.

But this year, I am determined. I will finish this. Even if it takes me all year!

This year, I limited my supplies to only use Felicity Jane or Paislee Press items as my base and I am only pulling embellishments from the choices I have loaded into my Raskog cart. I have decided on a loose ringed Traveler’s Notebook size clear acrylic cover from Color Cast Designs which will help with it’s manageable size. Here is my cover page that shows through the acrylic cover.

I also am trying to make it as simple as possible, using the Little Lamm Paper Co’s Reindeer Games TN Template for all of my journaling. I spent a few hours typing up journaling for every day in Evernote, then post holiday craziness, all I had to do was drop it into the template and print. Now I have photos and printed journaling waiting for me whenever I have a chance to work on it.

I am working out of order – just picking up whatever photo inspires me in the moment. So far this whole plan has been working well for me. Especially since I actually have a few pages already done! That’s way better than the last four years already!

Here are the first few pages I have finished

My craft room is a total mess but I look at it as a sure sign of progress!
