I am so excited about this project! I wanted to show you a sneak peek of my book. I'm planning on doing around 32 days or so (I never make any project easy for myself, phish)...so rather than photograph every page to show you, I thought I would just give a taste. I'm also doing it this way, because, I'm not quite finished with the foundation...pretty much just need to add the dates still. I'm actually saving that part for the days I do put the photos and stories in the book. I let the photos speak to me, and then put them in the appropriate paper or/and embellishment. Then I will show you each day, or a series of days what I ended up with. I didn't do a very simple book lol. Do I do anything simple, really?
Like I said in a previous post, I purchased a ready made book from Eva because I liked the idea of just having that...the ready made part. Well....I got super inspired, looked through my stash, and saw some new and vintage stuff online...I took the book apart, subtracted about more than half of what the book already had and added my own stuff. This book is in no way simple. LOL I love my eclectic (and Eva's) selection of papers and embellishments. I have written out a looooong list of things I want to photograph that I know is going to happen during the month. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I am especially excited because this is my first year of really knowing that I have a family of my own. Possibly starting new and old traditions during the holiday too :). I'm not sure if I am going to do this project every single year so this book is going to be pretty full.
Anyhoo, here are the sneeks :)
In addition to this, I'm taking Shimelle's Journal your Christmas and Willette Designs Finding the Holiday Joy . I am excited about using some of their prompts, that way If I do get stuck on a day where I can't think of anything, or something I didn't think of, it'll be a really great addition to the book. So excited!
Ps- I will also be working on a project that my best friend's son (Eriq) asked me to do for his 3rd grade class. I will be hosting Flat Stanley for a couple of weeks or so. He will be hanging out with me and maybe going out for some adventures...like say, to the #1 college football team in the nation...Oregon Ducks game! He'll have an awesome time for sure! :) I won't be showing those pics until I have completed the project and have sent Flat Stanley on his way back to Oklahoma :) I wanted to suprise Eriq with Stanley's adventures here in Oregon :) However, I will post this....Here is Stanley helping me with my Dec. Daily mini... he's was such a big helper!! Thanks Eriq for sending him my way! I'll take good care of him :)
