If you have been reading my blog for longer than a year OR if you know me personally, you probably have heard me call myself the Grinch. I hate to admit this because I've decided to change my attitude this year. But in years past, yes, I have publically declared my distaste for the holiday season. BUT, perspectives on life have been altered recently and the Grinch is GONE!!!
To start my new "good girl attitude" Christmas program, I've decided to embark on a scrapbooking tradition called December Daily. This is where you make a mini album for December documenting all your fun activities relating to the holidays with one page per day. Since I am ONLY doing Project Life scrapping now and I didn't want to be a hypocrite to my new declared love and dedication to this project, I am incorporating the December Daily concept into my Project Life album for 2012.
To introduce December though, I wanted to make a special insert. This 8x10 page is in a page protector (made by Becky Higgins and sold on Amazon) that is open at the top. So I am going to insert the girl's Christmas lists and other memorabilia collected throughout the month. Next, I'm doing a 4x6 mini page for each day of December and they will go into 12x12 PL page protectors with 4x6 horizontal slots. I'll post these mini pages as the month progresses.
So how is that for the start of a new attitude? If you are documenting EVERY SINGLE DAY of December, don't you think it is important to have FUN every day of December?!?!?!? Yep, so thus the new attitude. On the 1st, we went to see the Nutcracker and on the 2nd, we decorated our tree. So far so good. But today (the 3rd), Sophie and I are sick in bed and I'm not sure what special little activity I will document. Because I ain't putting in a picture of the sick bed with myself on it! Real life is NOT allowed in this album - haha!
I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the most fabulous month in the year - DECEMBER!!! Oh no, with this new good girl attitude, I might even develop a fondness for ... dare I say ... DISNEYLAND?!?!?! (I won't be going anytime soon, but perhaps a New Years Goal is in the works). Happy December friends! Come back regularly to check on my daily progress! Suzy
