December Daily Album Cover

Time to begin this year's December Daily album. The idea is to capture both holiday and routine-oriented stuff that happens during this busy time of year. As always, I am inspired by Ali Edward's take on the project. She shares some great tips here.  This year I am planning on using some of here ideas, such as addressing the journaling prompts "Joy is..." and "Loving..." I also want to include one of my handmade Christmas cards! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with adding photos to the album so I can share some pages once a week or so. Until then. here os the cover. This year's color scheme is red, gold and brown.

Chipboard album (Michael's $1 bin)
misc. cardstock
Rhinestones (Martha Stewart)
Ranger Distress Crackle Paint
Adirondack gold paint daubber
misc. ribbon
Sizzlet flourish dies
1" binder rings

Around Here, November 2011

Hey readers! I decided to grace you with my presence once again, and fill you in on the goings-on around here.

Around here, I am slowly regaining my health. I had a small procedure done yesterday to accommodate my new Minette device, which will hopefully "cure" my dizzy spells and get me back to work!

Around here, electronics are dropping like flies! Laptop, camera, and flat screen- poof! Thankfully, Christmas is coming soon!

Around here, Morgan has finally found her niche. She is performing in Stone Soup this weekend, and has loved every minute of rehearsals. She even has a solo! One parent complimented us on her singing and acting skills, and asked us how long she has ben taking lessons... it really does my heart good to hear her praised by a stranger.

Around here, I still need to drag out my winter clothes. Can we say "denial"??

Around here, I am in Christmas card production mode. It's been 2 or 3 years since I've made them, and it's been nice having a large-ish project to occupy my time.

Around here, my house is a disaster! So I'm off to clean...be back soon!
