My Version of the December Daily Journal

Its main difference is...its not, well, daily!


I did it last year. And I attempted to get it done daily, but I failed. Miserably.

I have an album that I love, with some awesome memories that I otherwise wouldn't have captured. But it is still unfinished.
And will forever more remain so.
I just can't make myself go back and finish it.
Mostly because my brain is going and I can't remember a lot of what the garbled notes and scribbled on bits of paper were reminders of LOL
Let alone which DAY things occured!
The pressure!

So I have made mine again this year.

It has about 15 pages in it. Un-numbered, ready for the happenings of December.

It also has lots of envelopes and clips and secret pockets for tucking in extra photos and notes. I will be writing neatly this year so I can remember *suuuuuuuuuure I will*

So I am starting to get excited about having a finished mini album at the end of December
No really, it COULD happen!

I admire you. I've thought about doing one as I really like the concept. I've signed in to Jessica Sprague's free class to do one. I've had a really good look at Ali Edwards. Frankly to me it looks a bit overwhelming. I dont have much time to scratch let alone add another thing into my day. But I reckon I may adapt one and do it for our summer holiday away in Janurary. things dont go so fast then. hopefully.
good luck. It does look awesome so far.

I love your idea Kirsty. I started one last year to and got about 6 days in and stopped. lol.

I am going to 'try' and do it this year.

I love yours.

Those December Daily albums are so cool, but I failed miserably on my first attempt a couple of years ago! I have yet to brave it again, but you have a good idea with not numbering it and just recording 'December'.
