I've decided to try to do a daily December mini album. This is an idea from Ali Edwards. She does one every year. Basically in October, you make an album with a page for each day of December then take a pic or two & do a little journaling each day. It's a easy way to chronical the holiday season. You can see all her blog posts about it here. http://aliedwards.com/2009/12/december-daily-compilation.html
I didn't get my book made well ahead of time like she does, but I did have a day or 2 to spare. ;) I decided to do a 4"x4". Just a bitty one for my first try at this. Here's a pic of the base album. Sorry it's a little fuzzy. I'll try for a better one later. The covers are coasters covered with pattern paper. The pages are various cardstocks. It's held together with a 2.5" binder ring. I didn't buy anything new for this. It's all from my stash.
I have taken pics & journaled the last 2 days I just haven't gotten pics printed yet. I'll probably try to do that once a week or so. I'm having fun so far.
