well…another long title from me. i could never write a novel…pages 1-35 would be the title. anyway… my friend heather at twigs, twine + thyme is a crafty one to say the least with an etsy shop to boot. her and i have been friends for so many years, it would be rude of me to divulge how many. heather is having a “handmade homemade december endeavor” where she discusses something she makes everyday…be it a craft, a gift, and food (yummy food i have to tell you). now, i am in no way as crafty as heather. i am a self-proclaimed copy-crafter. and to make matters worse, things always look way better in my head then they do when i execute them. even so, i decided to join heather with my december daily mini book.
i used to be a big scrapbooker (is that a word?) with my first baby. then number two and three came along and time was non-existent to scrapbook. so then i purchased becky higgins project life books. i still have them and work on them once a month or so…but really. again, no time. so heather and i follow a blog where she does mini books. elise is very crafty with the mini books. heather has done a few mini books and hers are way more crafty than mine. but here i go…deciding to do my first mini book with december daily where i document something from the 1st of december to christmas day. i will be sharing pieces here and there throughout the rest of the month. my goal was to keep up with it every day…but remember that time issue i have?
here is my page from december 1st…which was pretty full with MiUS’s first trunk show.
here is day two… i have no clue why the photo is so small (keeping it real) but we had breakfast with santa and since my book pages are only 6×6, i made a mini collage in picasa to add more photos to the page.
here is a future page. i actually put holes in an envelope. not sure exactly what i will put in here…maybe a record of what the kids wanted this year, what they actually got, and maybe even the cost? wouldn’t that be a
killer hoot to look at in the future…
more to come…i have a small pile of photos waiting to join the book. so…i am now in the handmade homemade december endeavor! i was going to do a post on the six dozen christmas cookies i made for the baking ministry i am in at church…actually (horn tooting here) i am a team leader. however, after telling my family over and over again that i was making the cookies for God (man, i am bad) i FORGOT to take the cookies to the bake sale! holy cow…guess i am off to confession…and now you know why you are reading about my mini book instead of my cookies…
and if you didn’t know…it is the holidays….and we have a deal of the day going on. check out our website for today’s deal! we have something for every holiday occasion…casual or dressy!
