In each of my December Dailys I like to include a copy of a grocery docket and this year I almost forgot. So with some last minute Christmas goodies to get as well as a few of the usual groceries, I copied the docket, folded it up and popped it into a pocket made from 2 (1 1/2 actually) Project Life type cards. Santa was cut from my one piece of Christmas patterned paper that I had in my supplies - the one I didn't think I would be using at all and all that is left is a few scraps.
The copy of the docket fits quite snuggly into the pocket so it should be safe enough not to attach it to any twine etc.
and this year it was a VERY quiet Christmas Day for us.
On this page I've added another Christmas Carol. The red patterned paper lifts up to reveal journalling about the day and I've cut the "happy Christmas" picture from that one piece of paper I had.
and opposite on one of the book's pages, I've swiped on some white gesso as the background for my photos and added a scalloped border down the side made from the same patterned paper used opposite.
and this is where my December Daily ends. I usually make Boxing Day the final day and it worked out well in my little book. I found this old piece of Prima packaging still with the green sticky dots (not sticky anymore) and some maroon blobs on it but it worked well to use for my little bit of journalling that I had for this day. Watercolour pencils used to colour the angel picture and added ric rac to the side.
This was how the last page in the book originally looked. The plan for this page was to print in the names of all the extra carols I had added to my December Daily. So off I went (no photo sorry) and started printing them in order as they appeared amongst the ones already in the book. It came to a sudden halt after a couple when I realized the carols already listed in the back of the book weren't in page order but in alphabetical order. Hmmmm.......so that plan was out the window and the index then got covered up. Still happy with how it has turned out though.
So now that I have finished my pages of this year's December Daily, all that is left for me to do is to bind it all together and enjoy!
We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
We'd love to see them!
