december album

Holy moly did the holidays creep up this year! Please say I am not the only one who is in disbelief that today is December 1.

Even with this seemingly sudden occurrence of the holiday season I do have to say that I am somewhat prepared, which in and of itself is a Christmas miracle as I've barely had time to utter the words "Christmas is coming" in between brush strokes of primer. In fact, as I type this my fingers are covered in the leftover paint I could not get off of my hands from last nights living room priming session! 

This December I have decided to get my album prepped ahead of time (another miracle) and I have to say that I am happy with the simplicity of it and I truly think I will be able to keep up with it this year.  You can read about the products I decided to use here.

And here are the bones. I have a few more things to add to it here and there, but the contents will be a combination of Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas, Ali's December Daily and Tracey's Picture the Holidays.

And since fixing up our house is such a huge theme in our lives right now I added a little spot at the bottom of each day to journal what projects we were working on that day. I can't wait to look back someday and reminisce about this time in our lives :) 


















Happy December! And for those of you out there who celebrate Hanukkah, have a great first night!

I LOVE your album, it's really beautiful!!!! I've got a question for ya... What size is that album? Because I am looking for a 6x8 album for mine and can't seem to find one. I wasn't going to use an actual album, but my pages got thicker and thicker and think having an album to keep them all safe is the best way to go! Thanks in advance!

Hoping that your Friday is amazingly fun!
