December 'Daily'

  • TheDuchess says...
    Who here does a December Daily and in what format? I've only done two, and one in a TN and the other in a minibook format. Now I'm thinking I want to do a Memory Dex style one. Any ideas?

    I'm still trying to finish my DD from 2017...this year may be my year, LOL 
    I'm using a small 6x8 binder that I bought at Walmart, also bought the 6x8 page protectors to go with it. 
    The embellishments are from a variety of scrapbooking manufacturers.

    Memory Dex style sounds really fun!  I bought a 3x8 size album and also a 6x8 size, not sure which I am going to do this year.  One page per day, maybe one photo per day if I do the 3x8

    what is a December daily?
  • Bonprof says...
    A December Daily is a small album that documets the month of December with snapshots and photos.
    They are fun to make, and a great way to treasure your memories.

    I have only made 1 , but absolutely loved doing it. 
    For sure I want to do one this year!

    Just typed a couple of paras on the origins of December Daily and got blocked when I tried to submit it.  Grrrrr even!  Apparently, there's some sort of filter that blocks long-winded, scrap-nerdy posts.
  • Doreena says...

    Hahahaha! Not laughing at your situation but at your description: "long-winded, scrap-nerdy posts"

    Anyway I heard that , at least for now, that kinda stuff needs to b broken up and added in sections.

    I haven't made a DD before, but am doing one this year.
    I'm trying to decide on the format so I can get my act together and make sure I actually Do It.

    I guess I need to research it.  My kids are grown and I have no pets or grand-children.  I have no idea what in the world I'd put in one.  "Today I brushed my teeth." "Today I talked to my mom on the phone for an hour, well really I listened to her complain about her bunions."  LOL

    I plan to do a December Daily, but I am going to try one in a travel journal size.  It will include our Christmas decorations, my Christmas card list, a favorite holiday recipe, and any special holiday activities that we do. It won't be chronological.  Just any of our holiday memories during the month of December.

    There is Page Evans Memory dex stile December Daily.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQP-7nvVFWk

    Oh that's a great idea!  I thought it was just for this coming Christmas.  I have plenty of past memories to do.

    I've done at least 8 or 9 and the one I love most is Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas. Once you've paid the first year, you get the email prompts and ideas every year. You don't need to have family or pets - there are lots of ideas like your favourite Christmas carol and why it is your favourite; Christmas remembered; how you do the lights in your town etc etc.  I have a Simple Stories small album that I didn't use in the past, so plan to use that - I have enough Christmas supplies to sink a ship!
