December Daily 2009, yes, 2009

I know, I know, I'm a year late, but I finished it last week, so I thought I'd share it.

Really, it didn't take too long to come together when I finally got the inspiration to do it. And the Cherry Red album for 18 bucks. That helped a lot.

I haven't included all the pages, because that'd be ridiculous, but you get the idea. It's pretty much date (used McGill Fancy Square), photo, story and bauble + some other bits.

These are Jenni Bowlin bingo cards.

They're 5 x 7 - I punched holes and they're pages in the album, just for fun. Didn't do anything to them except punch the holes.

Each day has a two page spread - I just made each spread work according to the photos and how much journalling I had.

I haven't included both pages of each spread here, just some random pages, some pairs, some not. Just so you know because it looks a little disjointed otherwise.

I did take close ups of the journalling, so you could read it, but then thought I wouldn't need them because the writing seemed big enough on the photos.

It's smaller than I wanted it to be, but you can double click on each photo to see them larger. Sorry about that...I know those extra steps can be annoying...

And here's the mess I made putting it together!

That bench is the size of a single bed and I used every bit of it. I like my spaaace!

Okay, well, that's it. Onto Dec Daily 2010. Are you doing one? I heard some of you say, no way! :o)


  1. I love it Deb! It's turned out so well. Yep I was the loudest in saying 'No way!' But I haven't completely let the side down ... I am sorta doing it on Facebook with a photo a day of what chrissy things we are doing, making and laughing at! The bones of one which can be made at a later date! Love the die cut baubles on the pages too hehe, stole it already!

  2. I knew you would be - I heard you say it in my head when I wrote it! Ha ha. FB is a good place to do it. It all works, it all counts! Glad you like the baubles - they're a favourite. :o) Hey, thanks for commenting. I always like reading what you have to say.

    Hi Debra, it's too late for this year but i think i would like to give it a go next year, i will just need to remember and be organised! I love yours it looks great and what nice memories to look at each xmas.

  4. Hi Christine,
    If you keep with with www.aliedwards.com on her blog, she'll get you organised early! It is a fun thing to do, but it does take time. The trick (as discussed on Ali's blog by a reader) is to trade time because we know it's hard to make time this time of year. I love to look back at the books over the years - it's why I do it. That, and the making stuff with paper part.
    Thanks for commenting! I enjoy reading what you have to say. Bye for now :o)
