December Daily | Prep & Supplies

It literally feels like my birthday was yesterday, but in reality, Christmas is in a month. This year has flown by, and while I'm excited for all the things next year will bring, there's a lot of things I still want to do this year. Like create my very first December Daily album. I'm excited, nervous, and a little anxious about this project, but I'm sure I'll have a wonderful time. My plan is to still share my pages throughout this month, otherwise I'm afraid I won't finish the album, but given how busy this time of year is, I'm almost certain I'll fall behind, but my main goal is to finish the album before the end of January.
I haven't done much in the way of prepping pages. Until I did Week in the Life, I wasn't able to add pocket pages to an album in any order that wasn't all of each page type grouped together. While it worked for me to choose a pocket page based on the photos I had for that particular day/spread, I wanted to try something a little different, and make my photos fit into my plan. While I'm completely okay rearranging things when I work on the album, for the most part everything is set. I have allowed for a two page spread for each day, but I'm totally open to removing pages. My album is pretty full already and all I have are pocket pages, these wood veneer numbers by Freckled Fawn (from last year), and here I share a few things I made with some of Wilna Furstenbergs newest set of Christmas products (available here).

Ali Edwards just had a sale (60% off) on her old December Daily products, so of course I bought the 2013 Kit Only and the 2014 Kit with the off-white album. I'd been debating buying the 2014 kit for a while, and since she rarely has sales, I took advantage and picked it up. At the time I'm writing this, only the 2014 kit with the off-white album is available (linked above).

My original plan was to keep it really simple, and stick to traditional colours (red, green, gold, silver and black) but after seeing Wilna's beautiful Christmas products, I've acknowledged that it might be all over the place. I imagine that this album will be bursting with Christmas memories by the end of the month. I'm so excited!

I'm also working on this little 4x4 album. I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet, but right now it has some 4x4 pocket pages inside of it, but I think that maybe I'll remove those and just include 4x4 photos straight into the album. I'm thinking in the form of a photo challenge (like photo a day) and having Jon and I both snap photos each day, and add them to this album. It'll be so fun to see how we both capture the December season. I might even make him write some journaling to include in the album.

Thank you so much for coming by to see the VERY early stages of my December Daily. I can't believe that December is already less than a week away! I'm so excited to document the month with all of you!

Have a great day!
