I printed out two (2x3) photos from the cookie exchange and adhered it directly on the paper. Stuck one of my Christmas labels right on the page and wrote some text about the making of the cookies. The other side I journaled about the day we put our tree up.
The next spread is a 4x6 photo of the kids in front of the tree. Natalie and her new boots, she loves them. I love how the lights shine on the hardwood floor. Hand wrote directly on the photo with a silver sharpie marker. The next page is two 2x3 photos of the kids opening their St. Nick gifts. He came to our house a little late this year, he's been really busy!
To mark it down on paper and on the internet, I mentioned in yesterdays post the date 12.12.12. which will be the last time that ever happens for another 100 years or so. I'm sure tons of people got married yesterday just to have that date. Kinda cool. The design is from Monika Wright's blog post yesterday. I loved the design so I stuck it in the middle of the page, and hand wrote in the #12 in some of the circles.
The next page I stamped a Christmas tree in the middle of a circle green piece of paper. Adhered the circle with a piece of Christmas washi tape from Target. Simple. Simple.
Are any of you doing a holiday book or a December Daily album? It's fun filling it with everything holiday-like for sure. And it's even more fun to look back on these books. The kids still look at last years all the time. I don't follow the December Daily rules for this book, I just add to it when something holiday-like happens, or anything I'd like to remember during this month. It's really up to you how you want to document the holidays. Be creative with it, do what matters to you.
See how I started the holiday book right here. Any questions? Just ask, I'd be glad to answer them.
