Just keep swimming, just keep swimming… j/k. I’m having a harder time with this project this year for 2 reasons. 1. I just did October Daily which was a blast but still quite the task. 2. I never did find 1 Christmas line that I *loved* so I’m pulling from a few different things to try to make it work. That said, Kate was so excited about looking at our previous December Dailies that I knew I had to push through or I would regret it. Here’s the next installment.
Day 7. Are those peppermint Thickers not too die for? I wish I had bought 4 or 5 packages instead of 1. Paper is Authentique:)
I added an insert since it was a busy day. First we went on a tour of the post office with one of our playgroups, then we met up with another playgroup at the park after “nap.” Tree paper is last year’s My Mind’s Eye.
Day 8. We went to a peppermint themed birthday party for Emily. So adorable! I *think* this paper is Basic Grey, but I’m too lazy to go look. If anyone is dying to know, leave a comment and I’ll see if I can find it.
Day 9. More awesome Thickers. And Authentique paper. And Mimi cuddles.
I added a strip of this year’s My Mind’s Eye to the back.
Day 10. The girls and I made ornaments! It was super fun. My Mind’s Eye with some October Afternoon stickers.
I added a page with a macro shot of some peppermints I was working on and put journaling on the back. You can see Kate’s page poking through. She was *so* excited to help. More on that in the next installment.
Also, just a bit of a goals update to try to keep myself accountable. (I’m writing this on the 10th.) I’m way behind in Kate’s scrapbook and Project Life. My goals this month are to finish her March and April layouts (pictures have already been printed); finish December Daily; sort and order pics for May and June; sort and order Project Life pics for April, May, and June; and do the Project Life journaling for November. Oh and start cooking. I’m making dinner once a week now. Wow. Seeing it all typed out like that is kind of freaking me out. I have 21 more days… Can I do it? We shall see.
