Dec 1: December Daily 2014

It's time for December Daily.

Perhaps you've heard of it. It's a project that's a quite a lot of awesome with a little bit "What have I done?"

Usually, I have supplies pulled and foundation pages started long before Dec. 1. This year, there's a lot less prep and lot more improv. I'm not worried though. I know that as long as I take pictures and journal it will ok to put it all together later.

I don't have any prepped pages or baskets of supplies arranged to share but I do have a plan. I'm going capture one story a day, using the Simple Stories Sn@p album system and the Freckled Fawn Very Merry Embellishment kit. ps: I love that kit!

So, here's our December 1.

The journaling reads: Today is all about traditions - a huge part of the season and beginnings. We've been playing Christmas music for a while and reading Christmas stories at bedtime. And more than a few decorations have crept upstairs. In spite of all these signs, the official start of Christmas (for me) is Dec. 1. Now, we can really start the celebration with advent calendar treats and our Elf on the Shelf (Thomas-Luigi) returned.

The paper is by Prima and the gold number 1 is from the Freckled Fawn kit that I embossed with gold embossing powder. I also dipped the edges of my journaling cards in Versa Mark ink and then more gold embossing powder a la Kristina Werner for a little something special.

I printed my photos in black and white because the morning light in my kitchen is the worst. Fortunately, a few clicks in PSE 10 and you would never know there was a problem.

And that's my 2014 December Daily started. That's pretty exciting, isn't it? I will definitely share more pics and updates here on my blog so make sure to follow along.

Thanks for stopping by!
