minialbum: December Daily 2014

minialbum: December Daily 2014 |

In 2014 I did a December Daily for the first time. It was fun to see it grow everyday bit by bit. Some days I made one double page, other days six to eight pages. All filled with pictures of good, christmasy memories. I challenged myself to take every day at least one photo and if it was simply a photo of a choco santa. When I now look through it I get goosebumps from those beautiful days, the craftiness I had last year and all those little magical moments.

Before I started, I prepared numbers for everyday in advance. I chose red, green, white and black numbers and stuck them on glittery white circles. The colors I used in the minialbum were: red, green, gold, silver, white, black and all in glitter versions. I bound the book with my favorite kind of band: red velvet. I painted some filler pages in advance, but the pages added up so fast, that I had to make some more. Not that I did mind doing more…

Christmas crafts

Last year I was all over crafting in December. I folded a huge pile of little origami Santas, Fröbelstars, origami stars, gift bows and origami Christmas trees, made seven different types of pralines, drew snowflakes on our living room door and took everyday at least one photo for my December Daily album. It was a crafty and happy time. I had fun trying new things, making things in bulk and writing Christmas greetings to friends and family.

I have to smile seeing all these pretty little Christmasy things. What are you crafting this season?
