Well, the final decision has been made and ordered. No turning back now ;-)
After thinking about it (probably a little too much...) I decided to go with the Jovial Collection from Basic Grey.
What sold me on it was actually the description:
Snuggled in a flannel blanket by the glow of a fire, watching the snow falling through the frosted window, BasicGrey's Jovial collection is a warm celebration in white snow, velvet black, pomegranate, evergreen, and emberglow. A tapestry of holiday tradition---just like we always dreamed it could be.
Doesn't that just sound magical? It's almost as if BG had a tiny window into my thoughts about what I am hoping this winter will be!
I also picked up these date cards
Thanks for the link, Sharyn!
As well as these journaling cards.
I think these selections will help me keep it simple so I can still document our December with everything else going on. Speaking of which...as far as my album goes, I have decided to combine Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas with Tracey Clark's Picture the Holidays. I think marriage of these two very creative formats will help to create a unique album which we can treasure in the years to come.
I'm excited to experience and document our first holiday season in the house!
How about you? Are you documenting the holidays this year?
