December Daily 2010 | Days 1-4

December has kept with it’s yearly routine of kicking my butt. Very busy and making me super thankful that I chose the size I did for my December Daily journal. A size small enough for a photos and some words. Minimal embellishing.

One change to the cover… I added the year on a little Making Memories tag tied to the rings with baker’s twine (available in my shop).

Day one.  A little wallet sized photo, label punched with a label punch, some jewels and a handsewn embellishment.

Day two. Even simpler.

Day three. I sewed on a bracket cut with my Slice and added a chipboard poinsetta I’d been hoarding.  Three little red gems finish it off.

and Day four.  I added in the actually scalloped tag that the kids pulled out of the advent box on that day and wrote about our evening.  I cut a chipboard snowflake in half and added one to either side of the tag.  More gems.

Note: This page was originally a lime green paper with glittered dots all over it but it didn’t work out with what I had planned so I changed it.  No harm no foul.

We got home late last night from a gathering (day five) so I’ll work on that one when I do day six (tonight hopefully).

Anyone else tackling a December journal this year?
